Fun Way To Stay Cool And Hydrated
(NAPSA) - Staying hydrated is important but it doesn't have to be boring. Adults should consume at least 48 ounces of fluids every day, and there are plenty of flavorful ways to help achieve this goal.
"Tea is a very versatile drink," says personal trainer and fitness expert Bob Greene. "Not only are there many flavors, but it can be prepared to your liking. You can refresh with a cold glass of iced tea or relax at home with a warm green tea."
In addition to providing hydration, tea is also a natural source of flavonoid antioxidants, which help protect your cells from the effects of free radicals and help reinforce the body's natural defenses.
To keep you and your family hydrated, Greene offers the following tips:
Prep Time: 10 minutes - Brew Time: 3 minutes - Chill Time: 2 hours
Pour boiling water over tea bags; cover and brew 3 minutes. Remove tea bags and squeeze. Stir in remaining ingredients in pitcher; cool. Serve over ice.
Lipton has a variety of teas to incorporate more variety into your daily beverage consumption.
