Pure water is still an essential daily drink, but when you need that extra boost of energy, keep these 5 super, healthy drinks on your mind before any others.
Drink any of these before you reach for that cup of coffee in the morning. You’ll be impressed at how revitalized you’ll feel:
1. Warm Lemon Water
Why warm lemon water? There are many far-reaching health benefits of adding lemon to warm water, ranging from clearer skin to possibly preventing cancer. Who would have thought that something as simple as squeezing lemon into warm water could do so much good!
2. Herbal Tea
When you’re ready to try more healthy alternatives to coffee and perhaps drink less caffeine or eliminate it altogether, give herbal teas a try. The benefits of herbal teas include everything from antioxidant properties to calming or even smooth long lasting energy derived from sources other than caffeine.
Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage that you can make at home or buy ready made. It has become popular for its digestive benefits as it helps support the growth of healthy gut bacteria. It can help to combat bloating, reduce inflammation, and fight candida overgrowth (bad bacteria). If you’ve been on antibiotics in the last year, you might consider adding kombucha to your diet in addition to other probiotics.
4. Fresh Vegetable Juice
Juicing takes time but it’s getting easier with new inexpensive and easy-to-clean juicers available as well as fresh cold pressed juices available in many stores. Consuming freshly juiced vegetables is the best way for people to get highly absorbable micronutrients without the sugar. When people start juicing they typically notice a lot more mental clarity and skin conditions improving rapidly. The health benefits from fresh vegetable juice may be exactly what your body is needing. You won’t know how many remarkable benefits you could be experiencing until you try.
5. Coconut Water
Coconut water is used as a natural electrolyte for rehydrating for people who don’t want the sugar and additives included in most sports drinks. Coconut water has vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium and other micronutrients in a highly absorbable form. Pure coconut water would have no artificial additives or sweeteners and is low in sugars naturally.
