Most of us need to drink more water. For some this can be a real challenge. I received two products from Zing Anything to help you add some zing to your water! This concept can possibly help the sugary-beverage addicts and get them to switch to water with some zing.
Drink More Water
Drink more water seems to be a constant mantra with all things healthy. Whether you are on a diet, or just trying to improve your overall health, more water is on the menu. This doesn't mean pop or any other sugar-laden beverages — WATER.
I have had episodes with kidney stones ever since my teens. A few weeks ago I had my second Lithotripsy procedure. This is where they put you to sleep and send an electric pulse into your kidney to bust up large stones. In order to put a stop to this nonsense, I have been on a mission to drink at least a gallon of water per day. In addition to the benefits of flushing my kidneys, my skin also looks clearer, I have more energy, and I am losing some weight. Win!
Plain water can get a little boring, though. I was really intrigued by the products over at Zing Anything! Lately I have been seeing a lot of buzz about fruit-infused waters, and these products are a great way to do it. Less mess and more options when it comes to infusing flavor into your water.
I tried the Citrus Zinger with a lemon first. Of course, I purchased a monstrous lemon, so I had to cut the rind to make it fit. Otherwise, it's so easy to just place the wedge into the bottom of the zinger and twist. Since the whole bottom comes off, you can also add ice to the bottle through that bigger opening. Use this with any citrus fruits like, lemon, lime, orange, or grapefruit. Having my lemon-infused water was a real treat! I drank it twice as fast as I do when it's plain.
The Aqua Zinger is the other innovative flavor infuser that I tried out. Here's where you can really get creative. Add relatively any fruit or vegetable to the bottom and twist to chop and release the flavors into your water. I did my first one with blueberry and lemon. At first I thought the bottle would be awkward to drink from, but it's not bad, and I am happy to hear they have a sports cap coming soon! That will make it perfect. Since this one is stainless steel, it's also safe for hot liquids, as well.
My blueberry and lemon combo was de-lish! Some other possible combos that would be good are:
- Cucumber, lemon, mint & ginger (kind of like Sassy Water)
- Watermelon & basil
- Kiwi & lime
- Strawberry & Peach

In addition to these two products, they also have a Salad Zinger and a Vodka Zinger.
