Sifton Retirement Living encourages you to drink our Spa Water available every day as a part of our philosophy for healthy living and wellness. Enjoying a glass of our signature Spa Water after the daily walking challenge, fitness class or at meals is sure to boost your energy. Refreshment and great taste, plus the peace of mind that you are not adding unnecessary sugar sugar to your diet.
How is the Spa Water Infused?
Fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs are all great options to add flavours to our Spa Water. When possible, we opt for local in-season fruits and veggies. We simply clean and prepare the local fruits or veggies and “steep” them in fresh water to add flavor tastes. Enjoy the variety of flavours and allow the fruits/ veggies to float in your glass as you refresh and re-hydrate.
Can I Eat the Fruits in My Glass?
Absolutely! However, you might likely be disappointed. Expect something less flavourful and more watery —As the water takes on the flavour of the fruit or veggies will take on more water reducing the actual taste.
Is Infused Water Good for You?
There are many health benefits of infused water including appetite control, hydration, immune defense, heartburn prevention, blood sugar regulation and weight management.
