From maple to birch tree, these plant-based products may just get you drinking more H2O.
That said, some people just arenâ€™t that into it, maybe because of the taste, or the lack thereof. Here's a potential solution for the meh-about-water types: plant-based versions. If you're not regularly downing nature's clear stuff, testing these waters could get you closer to your fluid goal; some may even give you bonus health perks. (Donâ€™t go on a guzzle binge, thoughâ€”unlike actual water, these all contain sugar, some more than others.)
