10 Fruits to Add to Your Water That Will Totally Benefit Your Body

There is a way to have everything you want from your water, though: Infuse water with fresh fruit. Different flavors of fruit-infused water will offer different benefits. To infuse your water, just cut up your favorite fruit, drop it in a pitcher or a glass of water, and drink up! In addition, you can eat the fruit once you’re finished. Infuse your water overnight for extra flavor.

Apples

Apples are loaded with iron and low in calories. Though they're primarily an autumn crop, they're available all year long, so they are good choices for replacing fruits that aren’t in season. They also come in many varieties, and each kind of apple provides a unique flavor.

Oranges

The citrusy goodness in an orange contains flavanones, which have been proven to reduce the risk of stroke — and of course they're a key source of valuable vitamin C.

Pears

This fruit is not only for baking — it will also put a little pep in your step! When you eat a pear, your body absorbs glucose, which gets converted into energy readily.
