JUNE is Men’s Health Month ~ Introduce Dad to the Many Benefits of Drinking Water This Father’s Day!
June is National Men’s Health Month. This annual celebration helps to raise awareness of preventable health problems and encourages early detection and treatment of disease among men. One way that we may help prevent disease and unwanted health problems, is to encourage our grandfathers, dads, uncles, brothers, and friends to establish or maintain a healthy hydration ritual.
Here are some powerful health benefits that regular water consumption may provide men:
- Prevent kidney stones
- Strengthen Immune System
- Reduce or eliminate back pain
- Maintain healthy weight
- Less sweating (Water regulates body temperature)
- Lower blood pressure
- Decrease risk of certain cancers. Ex- Colon
By making water more flavorful and convenient, you will find that it is a lot easier for everyone to drink more water – especially men. Don’t forget that our Spa Water Bottle will help them enjoy their water while on-the-go! With the built-in strainer and flip-top, they can add their favorite fruits and more! Most importantly, they will be quite impressed with how long this thermos keeps their beverages hot or cold!
This Father’s Day, prepare this revitalizing Citrus Spa Water for brunch or dinner. You can even attach this recipe to a Spa Water Bottle to help inspire your DAD to continue this healthy hydration ritual at home.
Citrus Spa Water
- 1 Grapefruit
- 1 Orange
- 1 Lime
- 1 bunch of Fresh Mint
- Water and ice
- Slice citrus fruits. Layer fruit with ice in a large pitcher or beverage server. Place some fresh mint at the top and pour in water.

Health Note: Citrus fruits provide a burst of flavor along with some potent antioxidants like Vitamin C. This anti-aging nutrient helps to maintain healthy skin, hair, and teeth. It even fortifies the Immune System, which is a great way to prevent colds and the flu. Lastly, you will find that mint is very soothing to the digestive system and ensures fresh breath.
Overall, fruits, vegetables, and herbs make your water more appealing, plus infuse whole food nutrition that provides your body with a powerful boost of vitamins, antioxidants, and other necessary nutrients that help to keep you healthy & fit.
