Today’s fitness kit I’ve reviewed this week is something to liven up your water during these chilly days.
We all know we should drink plenty of water (at least 2 litres, although frankly I think 3-5 litres is more like it, particularly for active folk). Plain, filtered water is always going to be best. But sometimes it’s tough to chug tons of water, especially when the temperature is cold and the weather is grim.
I often use sugar-free flavour drops for my water so, when I was sent this lovely presentation pack of “Enhance”, I was happy to give them a mention on the blog.
They’re little squeezy bottles of concentrated flavour, made from real fruit juice, with no added sugar or artificial colours/flavours. So technically they’re not sugar-free, but they don’t have any additional sugar, and no Sucralose or other sweeteners. And because you only need a tiny amount, the fructose/carb load is minimal (barely worth mentioning). You can (indeed I have) pop them in your gym bag/handbag if you want to top up your water during the day, and they seem to be lasting for ages because you really do only need a small amount.
There are four flavours: apple & blackcurrant, strawberry & kiwi, lemon & lime, orange & passion fruit. All are lovely!
I’ve been using them in cold water and also as a hot drink (the apple/blackcurrant and strawb/kiwi are best for that).
Sadly you won’t get them in this lovely box when you buy them from the shops, but I can tell you that they’re on offer at the moment – £2 each instead of the usual £2.49. You can get them from most supermarkets and direct from Enhance’s website.
And for every bottle sold, Enhance will make a donation to the charity Just a Drop, which will provide a child in Africa with clean and safe drinking water for a month.
Thanks for the sample box, Enhance Drinks people!
