One of the worst things you can do when it comes to quenching your thirst is pop open a can of soda. Sodas taste good and almost everybody drinks it, yes. However, it is full of sugar and caffeine and other unhealthy ingredients. Energy drinks and sports drinks are also not very good for you but consumed by a large number of people. Here are a few drinks that are actually good for you.
Of course everyone knows water is good for you. Water is the best thing you can drink when you’re thirsty. So everybody knows that, but do they actually do it? Well try keeping bottled water in your fridge and that will help in drinking more of it. When things are easy and accessible, it’s a lot more likely you will drink it. If your one of those people that don’t really like water, well you can drink the sparkling water that has a bit of flavor added in. The kind in the store may have a lot of sugar like other unhealthy drinks, but you can buy plain sparkling water and add a tad of juice for flavor.
Green tea is great for your body. It aids in digestion and burns fat cells. Why wouldn’t you want to drink it? You can have it hot or cold, and also a squeeze of lemon makes it even better for you. Just make sure when drinking green tea, use honey as a sweetener or drink it plain to benefit most from drinking it. Adding a lot of sugar to the drink will ruin a healthy choice in beverage.
Yes, coffee! Coffee is great for your body when lots of sugar and cream isn’t added. Also doctors warn that you need to drink it in moderation.
Cranberry Juice is very good for your kidneys. According to doctors, drinking cranberry juice will prevent bacteria from sticking to your urinary tract and causing infections. Cranberry Juice can be high in sugar depending on the brand. So it’s good to look at the label before drinking it. My doctor tells me to find drinks that have 10 grams of sugar or less.
Prune juice aids in digestion and is also a natural laxative. Again, watch out for the sugar levels. If you find a juice that is a little high in sugar you can always add water to it to cut the calories and sugar.
Milk is great for strong muscles and repairing tissue. It helps prevent osteoporosis as you age according to health professionals. Drinking milk is good if it’s low in fat, so try to buy skim milk. It taste great and is healthy, providing your body with great benefits.
