Water, the element that makes up the majority of the planet and over 60% of the human body. In my case, that percentage might be even more if you take into account the massive amounts of water I drink each day. At my work desk, there’s always a glass of water keeping me company at all times. When it’s empty, I immediately stand up to refill it. And this has become a sort of subconscious habit for me which not only helps me stay hydrated but also reminds me to stand up from my desk and move around. For me, this little tweak is what’s helping me fight the dangers of my office job and sedentary lifestyle.
Unfortunately, this hasn’t always been the case. Like many people, I didn’t like the bland taste of plain water. And no, carbonated water was not an option because the bubbles really bother me. I struggled to make drinking water a habit until I discovered flavoured Stevia water drops a couple of years ago. Finally, a water enhancer after my own taste!
SweetLeaf Stevia water drops are an all natural water enhancer that contains zero artificial ingredients, zero sugar, and zero calories. Stevia is actually a herb that has been used for centuries as a sweetener. It contains special compounds called steviosides which provide an intensely sweet taste without any calories involved. What’s more, stevia is so sweet that no insects bother it, which means this plant is grown pesticide-free. When processed into water drops, stevia is so concentrated that you only need a couple of drops to sweeten a medium bottle of water.
Using these drops in your water will not only make it sweeter, but it will also give it a refreshing flavour. SweetLeaf Stevia water drops come in four delicious flavour blends: peach mango, strawberry kiwi, raspberry lemonade, and lemon lime. So, there’s a little something for everyone – peach mango for those of you who enjoy their water super sweet, and the citrus flavour for everyone who loves a nice bitter after-taste. The nice thing about this drops is that the water doesn’t change colour when you add them, like many water enhancers do. However, this might make it difficult to judge how much you’ve added, so be careful and taste the water before adding more.
Stevia water drops come in small bottles which can easily fit in your purse, jacket, or the glove compartment of your car. Carrying a bottle of water and these drops with you can quickly make you develop a healthy water habit. And if you’re like me and stuck in an office job from 9 to 5, having these drops on your desk can be a reminder to drink up and refresh your body. Over time, when you get used to drinking water more regularly, you can even try skipping on the drops and see how that works for you. Even if you don’t feel a need to use your drops with water anymore, you can still use them to spice up other drinks or try making your favourite dessert recipes sugar-free.
