Vitality EOsMost importantly, make sure you are drinking enough water each day to keep hydrated and help your body perform at its best. According to the Mayo Clinic’s online article, Nutrition and Healthy Eating, “water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells, and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.” The article also states “the Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) of total beverages a day. The adequate intake for women is about 9 cups (2.2 liters) of total beverages a day.”

For those not currently drinking enough water, it can be difficult to increase this habit. So try spicing it up with just a few drops of Vitality™ essential oils! We suggest 2 drops per 20 ounces for a nice hint of flavor of Citrus Fresh Vitality™, Grapefruit Vitality™, Jade Lemon Vitality™, Lavender Vitality™, Lemon Vitality™, Lime Vitality™, Orange Vitality™ and Tangerine Vitality™. But you may find other more savory oils you enjoy such as Ginger Vitality™, Peppermint Vitality™, or Cinnamon Bark Vitality™. Have fun playing with your own special blends and you’ll be drinking plenty of delicious, beneficial water in no time!
