There are and endless list of suggested ways that you can improve your health. From counting calories, to fitness fads, and cleanses. But what if I told you that you could drink your way to better health?
Replace The Sugars
Soda, flavored coffee, sports beverages, energy drinks, and many juices contain high amounts of processes sugars. Even when you select low or no-calorie options, the sugar is bad for your body, and your waistline. Swap your sugar-filled beverages with water, herbal tea, and black coffee—and you will see and feel the difference.
Juice Has Never Tasted Better
Odwalla, Naked, and Suja are just a few of the 100% natural juice and smoothie manufactures. These beverages may contain sugar, but these are naturally-occurring unrefined sugars. Fresh juice and smoothies are naturally hydrating, and packed full of healthy essential vitamins and nutrients. Juicing is also an excellent way to meet or exceed your daily 3 to 5 servings of fruits and vegetables.
The Wonders Of Water
It’s easy to forget, but water is one of our most basic needs. While you might drink a lot of fluids during the day, nothing can replace our need for hydrating water. Water helps to improve digestion, cool our bodies, cleanse our liver, and hydrate our body. While you want to avoid unhealthy additives, you can easily improve the flavor profile of water with citrus, mint, or herbal tea. You can even use a soda stream or carbonator, minus the syrup.
You can drink your way to better health, but you can also drink your way to a decline in health and wellness. Just be sure to keep sugar, alcohol, and beverages with chemical additives to a minimum.
