One great way to get your water intake up is to infuse water! I have a million different combos but lately I have really loved lemon & strawberry. Its fresh and simple and so good!
I mix my water up in my favorite tumbler found HERE
I recently started adding Forte Elements into my water in the morning. It is an amino acid supplement. Amino acids are essential for repairing muscle, giving you energy, boost immune function, prevents against infection, and more.
I really like the flavor, the lemon lime 30 pack is my favorite. I also have noticed that I do feel a lot better, especially as I work out more – I don’t feel as sore as I have in the past.
The really interesting thing I learned about amino acids is you need more than your body produces! So we all could benefit from supplementing to get more amino acids in our bodies.
