We all know drinking water is good for you, however, getting down the recommended daily amount can be hard, if not downright impossible. While there is nothing wrong with drinking water itself, it can get slightly tedious and even boring due to its lack of taste.
In order to help make it a little more palatable, we are featuring some of the best drink mixes and/or water enhancers that promise to bring some life back into your water and ultimately get you back to drinking it on a regular basis. These enhancers contain zero sugar, come in plenty of delicious flavors and are easy to use — simply pour or squeeze into a glass of water and enjoy.
Options include a clean, antioxidant drink mix powder that is meant to not only boost your water with 25+ vitamins but will also provide a natural surge of energy for four to six hours. You can also choose to transform your water sans energy boosts with liquid flavor enhancers. These mixers will turn your plain water into a refreshing, flavorful drink that is fully customizable and can be conveniently used at home, at work or on the go.
