This week I'm focusing on:
I always try to drink as much water as possible. We don't keep fruit juice or soft drinks in our house and always have a glass of water with food in stead of something sweet. It's an easy way to make sure you aren't filling your body with useless calories. I also always try to drink as much water as possible at the office. It gives me a reason to get up and away from my desk and it really does make a difference. If I don't drink enough water during the day, I find my eyes get more tired and I get a lot of headaches.
I am completely addicted to BuchuLife Herbal Water. I have at least two or three bottles a day. The taste is addictive and it has no added sugar or preservatives. Basically, it's just pure water plus the goodness of Buchu. Buchu products have greater antioxidant effects than Vitamins C, E, Selenium and Zinc, and prevent formation of oxidized cholesterol through their antioxidant effects.
BuchuLife comes in 4 flavours: Cranberry, Lemon & Lime, Blackcurrant and Natural - which makes it a nice alternative to 8 glasses of water every day. I love having the variety.
Buchu has long been used for digestive ailments, urinary tract infections and its anti-inflammatory properties. It is also used to treat prostatitis, stomach aches, nausea and vomiting, indigestion, coughs and colds.
You can find a list of stockists on the BuchuLife website.
