Stur is a simple, delicious and natural way to help you drink more water, which is the easiest and cheapest way to lose detox and lose weight (contrary to what magazines, websites and blogs will be telling you this month!)
Apart from the obvious benefit of keeping you sufficiently hydrated, and flushing out your system, drinking more water has also been proven to aid weight loss and kick-start your metabolism. Stur is fortified with a high level of Vitamin C, which also contributes to your energy metabolism and helps to avoid tiredness and fatigue – both verified legal health claims.
Stur is made from real fruit and brewed tea but has no sugar or calories. The use of Stevia, a natural sweetener, gives a light and delicious taste. The two iced tea varieties are caffeine free but have retain all the flavonoid antioxidants of the tea. We tried it in hot water, and it’s perfect after a morning run in the cold. Stur is free from gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, caffeine, artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners and, of course, sugar. For best results, drink little and often during the day. Space out 8 to 10 glasses of water to reach the recommended two litres. Also, try and drink immediately before you eat, then 30 minutes before you exercise (and rehydrate adequately after).
Stur are offering 50 BESTFIT readers a free bottle with every purchase (first come, first served). Simply visit www.sturdrinks.eu/shop and use promo code ‘BESTFIT1’.
