health benefits of drinking infused water

I like using my cute watermelon drink dispenser that I’ve had stored away forever.  That way when friends and family drop by they can just help themselves.  You can also use a glass for smaller portions or a bottle if you want to take it with you.

I fill the drink dispenser half way with filtered water, add the fresh fruit and herbs then fill the remainder with ice.  After three hours you will have some delicious infused water.

Ingredients:

One washed apple.  Do not peel.  Slice.  Do not eat apple seeds.

1 cinnamon stick

1 star anise

1/2 tablespoon of ground ginger

Apples are high in antioxidants which are disease fighting compounds.  They are an excellent source of dietary fibers which help to prevent heart disease.

Cinnamon is a powerful antibacterial and great for your tummy.  It’s also one of the top seven antioxidants in the world.  Antioxidants reduce the formation of free radicals which cause cancer.

Star anise is traditionally used as a spice and healing herb.  It helps ramp up immune function to better resist viral infections and also contains antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin A.

Ginger has a long history of being very effective in alleviating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress.  It contains very potent anti inflammatory compounds, detoxifies the body and boosts the immune system.
