Herbal Water was originally available only in Philadelphia, but distribution is increasing in response to consumer demand for the new water.  Ayala’s Herbal Water is all natural, zero calorie, zero artificial additives and zero preservatives, and features the complex and sophisticated flavors derived from herbs which also bring all the health benefits associated with anti-oxidants.

Ayala Laufer-Cahana, M.D., is the Philadelphia-based pediatrician who created the drinks after spending years exploring healthy, tasty ways to feed children and adults.  Says Ayala, “The water’s herbs are also a rich source of antioxidants and other beneficial compounds naturally occurring in plants. Full of flavor yet free of calories, artificial sweeteners and artificial chemicals, these naturally fragrant beverages evoke happy feelings, like a breeze in a sunny garden.”

Ayala’s Herbal Water is available in six refreshing flavors:  cinnamon orange peel, lemongrass mint vanilla, jasmine vanilla, lavender mint lemongrass thyme, cloves cardamom cinnamon, and ginger lemon peel.   Details about the product, the health benefits associated with herbs and information about ordering the product online are available at www.herbalwater.com.

For centuries herbs have been enjoyed around the world and are known for their healing powers.  Some of the herbs used in producing the Ayala’s Herbal Water have been known to aid digestion, improve blood glucose levels, strengthen immunity, reduce insomnia, stress, and help maintain healthy LDL cholesterol levels.  In addition, most health officials agree that natural antioxidants such as those found in the herbs used in Ayala’s Herbal Water are more effective than those found in supplements.

Ayala is also a passionate cook, talented artist and lifelong vegetarian, and discovered Herbal Water in 2005 while working in her garden.  While exploring new alternatives to sugar-laden and artificially flavored beverages, Ayala created her own blends of herb infused waters that magically satisfy thirst and restore the spirit.   Today Ayala’s Herbal Water sets a new standard for naturally enhanced healthy beverages:  zero calories, zero artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors, and zero chemical preservatives. Nothing but great taste from pure water, infused with the finest natural herbs from around the world.

Added Ayala, “Most people have heard for years about the health benefits of fruits and vegetables, but are unaware that they can get even more benefits from herbs.  Herbal Water is a delicious beverage that is 100% good for you™ and delivers the benefits of herbs too.”

Concluded Cahana, “The response we’ve had from people across the country for Ayala’s Herbal Water has just been phenomenal.  We’re excited that we can now offer it to consumers in New York, but we’re working to offer it in cities across the country too.  Consumers everywhere should look for Ayala’s Herbal Water in their city soon, or visit www.herbalwater.com to order it today.”
