This may come as a surprise but one of the things that I struggle with most when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle is hydration. In my mind I can think of a million reasons why I should do a better job with it…skin, aging, digestion, cardiovascular health, workout recovery, overall appearance…but I still find myself not drinking enough on a daily basis.
As the temperatures drop, it becomes an even bigger issue. And I’m not alone. According to a recent Hydration Survey conducted by Ocean Spray, over 60% of Americans are drinking less than 8 glasses of water a day and many don’t feel the need to hydrate when temperatures cool down.
I have come up with a few solutions for dealing with proper hydration including drinking water at room temperature instead of iced, drinking a lot of hot tea, drinking specialty drinks like kombucha and enhanced waters and also drinking as much as I can when I teach and take yoga.
Recently, I have been enjoying a new cranberry extract water from OceanSpray to help with hydration. Ocean Spray® PACt® cranberry extract water contains PACs (proanthocyanidins) to help cleanse and purify your body. Cranberries contain unique PACs which work by preventing certain harmful bacteria from sticking, allowing them to be flushed from your body. Including PACs in water packs a punch that’s better than water alone because PACs are found in cranberries, not in water.
I find that I can easily down 40-60 ounces of water in one hot yoga class alone so it’s a great time for me to hydrate and I usually try to add in at least one water-alternative drink.
Ocean Spray® PACt® cranberry extract water is naturally sweetened with Stevia and erythritol has just 10 calories per bottle. Each bottle contains PACs from the juice of 50 cranberries with no genetically engineered ingredients. Also, the color of the water is from the cranberries, not artificial coloring.
Ocean Spray® PACt® cranberry extract water is available in four flavors:
– Cranberry Raspberry
– Cranberry Pomegranate
– Cranberry Blood Orange
– Cranberry Mango Passionfruit
I love them all but I think the Pomegranate and Blood Orange are my top two. Check out PACt.OceanSpray.com to learn more about Ocean Spray® PACt® cranberry extract water and take Ocean Spray’s Hydration IQ.
