You Keep Hearing Drink More Water, Heres How To Rev It Up!



If your like me getting 8 glasses in a day is hard, i always feel like water tastes bitter. So heres what i do: I add coconut extract (I love tropical flavors) but you could try others too! theres peppermint extract, Cherry extract, Almond extract etc. It revs up flavor and gives a bit of nutrients. Add a bit of splenda, truvia, agave etc and you have yourself a nice little treat!

    You don't need that much because extracts are very strong, i would say put a couple of drops in and taste test to see if its good or not. If you want it a little stronger just keep dripping! - by NINJACLAIRE
  • Thank you for this tip for drinking water. This just what I needed to up my water intake. - by MAEMAE66
  • I always drink my water with Propel flavor packets. Adds some electrolytes and makes the water taste awesome! I drink from a 28oz water bottle though, so I'd recommend using half a packet for anything smaller, it's pretty strong. :) - by FORTHECORPS
