  • Best Drinks for your Health

    Much of the day we reach for our favourite drinks and often this includes those favourites that are not exactly the healthiest choice for our bodies.  Mounds of coffee and caffeinated tea can be terrific tasting and can help us get through that afternoon slump when we’re tired, but they can also have a negative effect on our immune function and general health.

    Because these caffeinated beverages dehydrate us, we tend to get into a vicious circle whereby we reach for more of the same dehydrating beverages to quench our thirst.  Instead what we need to do is to think about what drinks are going to help us in the long run.  Instead of a quick caffeine fix, think about adding in some of these drinks to your day for long term health.

    Water.  Well of course water is the best and most healthful drink you can drink.  We all need to drink at least 8 eight ounce glasses of water a day.  Few of us however manage even to get three glasses in each day.  Because so many other beverages like juice, pop and coffee and tea are available, water tends to get crowded out.  Yet there is simply nothing more thirst quenching and cleansing for the body than this humble drink.  So next time you find yourself reaching for a juice or coffee, think twice and fill up your stainless steel water bottle instead.

    Green tea.  Ok, so if you do need a little pick me up during the day and are already hydrating yourself well with water, then there is nothing wrong with adding a little green tea stimulant to your day.  Green tea is packed with antioxidants and has therefore been found to have cancer preventing effects.  More than this though, green tea is also a thermogenic beverage.  What this means is that drinking lots of green tea can help boost your metabolic function and increase the calories burned during the day.  This is certainly a terrific bang for your buck.

    Carrot juice.  Carrot juice can be made fresh or store bought (just be sure it is fresh).  Carrot juice is also loaded with vitamins and minerals, particularly beta carotene and can be a great way to get a juice fill without all the sugar found in fruit juices.

    Green drinks.  If you need something a little bit more filling and tasty, why not try one of the green drinks available on the market today.  These can even act as meal replacements assuming they have all the necessary vitamins, minerals and nutrients.  Choose a non-dairy, vegan kind from a reputable company for best results.  Mix with water or a little almond milk for a good protein boost.

    Opting for nutritious drinks is an important component of a healthy diet.  Instead of high calorie fruit juices or worse yet soda pops, try to keep your drinks as healthy as your meals in order to reduce the likelihood of filling up on empty calories.
