Infused water is simply water- it can be filtered water, spring water, or just the plain water you  normally drink.

Then you infuse it with fruit, vegetables, or herbs.

You can infuse your water by simply adding your chosen fresh fruit, herbs, etc into a glass jar filled with water and allowing it to infuse in the refrigerator for a few hours.

You can also get specific jugs or water bottles that are made just for this purpose.

Infusing your water adds the taste of your fruit into the water making your water taste better!

Infused water will help you drink more water and the flavor options are endless!
