I live in Florida. When it’s not SUPER hot, it’s just hot. Yes, we do get a few freeze warnings every year and I’ll admit, I get giddy when I can pull out one of my two sweaters and justify putting them on.
My favorite accessory is my water bottle. Bottles, plural, because I actually have a cupboard devoted only to them. I find that if hydration is handy, I’ll drink it. If not, I won’t.
(Pretty simple, huh?)
But water gets old, even for an addict like me. So when Ocean Spray reached out to me to spread the word about its new Ocean Spray® PACt® cranberry extract water, I got really excited!
(The product contains PACs, or proanthocyanidins – unique, powerful elements found deep inside cranberries, to help cleanse and purify your body better than water alone.)
A few important points about Ocean Spray® PACt® cranberry extract water:
- It’s sweetened naturally (be careful, though, it does include erythritol, which is a sugar alcohol — I tolerate it fine but it can cause digestive issues if you have too much!)
- There are only 10 calories in every 16-ounce bottle
- It comes in yummy flavors like Cranberry Raspberry, Cranberry Pomegranate, Cranberry Blood Orange and Cranberry Mango Passionfruit
You can also go to to PACt.OceanSpray.com to learn more and take Ocean Spray’s Hydration IQ survey, which reveals that more than 60% of Americans are drinking fewer than 8 glasses of water a day, and that many only pay attention to hydration during the summer months and stop drinking as much when temperatures drop.
Why does it matter, you ask? Well, if you’re reading my posts, you probably are either working to get into shape or you’re working to improve your fitness level. Either way, health, fitness and wellness are important to you.
According to NASM (I’m a certified personal trainer), the recommended fluid intake for men is 125-130 ounces a day, or 16 cups. For women, it’s 91-95 ounces a day. Since fluids from all food and beverage sources count, why not find something that you actually want to drink?
And the more active you are, the most water you lose. NASM states that dehydration can decrease strength by 2%, power by 3% and high-intensity endurance by 1%. When you’re trying to add 10 pounds to your next rep, or shave 30 seconds off your next mile, those percentage points add up!
So, consider adding Ocean Spray® PACt® cranberry extract water to your shopping cart and giving it a try. I love the Mango Passionfruit flavor the best, but they’re all pretty yummy (I especially like mine over ice!).
