Healthy drinks like juices and herbal teas can help you improve and maintain your health. Specific herbs, vegetables and fruits are good for certain things. You can learn more about each one it on our healthy blog. Here you will find great healthy drinks recipes that can give you benefits such as: a stronger immune system, a better mood, and a reduced risk of cancer to name a few key ones.
Healthy drinks I recommend for the morning is a green juice. Green juice is alkaline, meaning it will balance your pH and give you clean energy to start your day.
Healthy drinks I recommend for after meals are hot teas. A hot tea will aid with digestion. The Japanese and Chinese are know for living healthy long lives and both of those cultures drink hot tea regularly after their meals.
Of course the most healthy drink is mineral water. That is what you want to drink most throughout your day. I say mineral water because mineral water contains trace minerals which are important to the cells in your body. If you have access to a spring or artisan well that would be the best choice. If you do not drink a bottle here and there, like San Pellegrino or Perrier. Most tap water in the USA contain fluoride and chlorine making it not one of the healthy drinks. Filtered water is ok but because it filters the bad stuff it also filters the good stuff. It will hydrate you, which is important but it will not provide those trace minerals from the earth.
Remember everything in moderation so a little bit of alcohol is ok, especially if shared with friends and or family in pleasant settings. Having happy social interactions are also a big factor in having a healthy life.
