These are the healthiest beverages (along with water)

You can only say it once before you get bored. Water is safe and healthy. It’s the best. What do you do if you don’t want the unhealthy side but want more options? Many beverages can help you do one thing while adding some flavor to your waterlogged palate.

Pomegranate Juice

Recent praises for the powerful antioxidants in pomegranate have been consistent. According to research, red juice could help prevent inflammation, heart disease, and cancer. A glass of red juice now and again is a good idea. Be careful about what you drink, as some bottles contain sugars or other liquids. Pure pomegranate is what you want. Accept nothing less.

Low-fat milk

It has been there for you since the beginning, hasn’t it? Although milk has been a great source of calcium, vitamin D, and other nutrients since childhood, it can seem less appealing to adults. However, low-fat and skim pints of milk are excellent protein sources and other essential micronutrients. These low-fat options are better than whole or reduced-fat milk because they have less saturated fat.

Green Tea

When you feel the afternoon slump coming on, a cup of green tea is better than a cup o’ coffee. This will give you the energy boost you need without making you feel grouchy. You’ll also get some antioxidants in each cup.

Orange Juice

Although a glass of fresh-squeezed OJ is a great choice, some people feel that it takes too much work to make. You can save the OJ for allergy season if that is the case. It has been proven that seasonal allergies can be relieved by vitamin C and quercetin (a form of flavonol found on certain fruits and vegetables).

Beet Juice

Prepare to be amazed at the impressive resume of the beet. The ability of beets to lower your blood pressure and increase your stamina. They also increase blood flow to the brain for older adults (slowing down the progression to dementia). Beets are healthy for your liver because they have zero trans and saturated fats, high magnesium, calcium and iron levels.

The downside? The only problem is that you won’t find beet juice in most grocery stores.

Hot Chocolate

Cocoa is included in this list. How can that be? It might not have happened if it wasn’t for your least favorite month, friend. Drinking high-magnesium content is a natural way to relieve menstrual cramps.

Make your hot chocolate with cocoa powder. You can sweeten it with almond milk, honey, or a small amount of maple syrup.

Kale Juice

Kale, kale, kale. Everyone loves kale. Although it might be a trendy choice, there are good reasons that so many people love kale. This dark leafy green is rich in vitamins and minerals that aid everything, from bone health to managing your bowels.

Drinking your vegetables is a great way to get multiple portions in one drink. Avoid buying bottled juices as they are high in sodium. A juicer might be an option to make kale juice at home.

Lemon Juice

You did read it correctly. Not lemonade, lemon juice. Lemon juice is what you should be drinking. It’s not good. It takes care of the gross stuff, like cleaning the liver, stimulating bile production, and aiding digestion. Vitamin C is also added to the party by lemon to help boost your immune system.

However, no one would force you to drink it by itself. Promise. To get your day started right, squeeze half of the lemon into a glass of cool water.

Yes, water is used in this healthy beverage, but it’s just used as a mixer. It still deserves a spot on this list.

Ginger Tea

Ginger is a natural remedy for stomach problems. Ginger has been promoted to soothe upset stomachs, alleviate motion sickness, pregnancy-related nausea, and improve digestion.

This sounds interesting to you? Then make a cup of fresh ginger tea by steeping a few thin slices of fresh ginger root in hot water. If the result is too spicy, add a bit of honey.

Cranberry Juice

UTIs are not something that people like to experience. It can take 2 days for symptoms to disappear after you have a UTI. Let’s be proactive and prevent UTIs by drinking pure cranberry extract. One study showed that it can “against bacteria and infections within 8 hours.”

This study used a cranberry cocktail because it is the most widely consumed cranberry drink. However, pure cranberry extract can provide the same benefits, and you should opt for it over a cranberry cocktail. Why? Both are loaded with sugar. The other one isn’t. Hint: The one that has sugar in its name is the one that contains a cocktail.
