I am always trying to find fun ways to stay hydrated! Drinking water is so important — especially during the hot summer months. This goji berry water is the perfect way to get in your water!
Water makes up roughly 60% of the human body and helps keep organs functioning properly. Pairing it with fun mix ins, like goji berries, is a great way to make sure you are drinking enough throughout the day!
A closer look at what’s inside:
Past studies have shown that a large majority of Americans may be dehydrated. Dehydration can lead to low energy, lack of focus, muscle cramps, and more. Drinking enough water daily can help prevent these things and also keeps your body functioning. It is generally recommended that you drink at least eight 8oz glasses of water per day. Depending on your activity level and bodyweight, you may need to drink more.
Goji berries are often praised for their high levels of antioxidants. In particular, they contain the antioxidant zeaxanthin that is thought to be beneficial for eye health. Goji berries are a great source of Vitamin A and minerals like copper, selenium, and iron. Surprisingly, they also contain a decent amount of protein. When eating dried goji berries on their own they can be a bit rough and chewy. However, soaking them in water makes them soft and creates an effect similar to drinking boba.
