5 Top Beverages To Keep You Healthy This Season

5 Top Beverages To Keep You Healthy This Season
  • 1 of 5

This is the time of year where it can be pretty difficult to avoid eating more than your body needs, and to not overdo it on the heavy, rich foods, but you can definitely help yourself by making sure you drink beverages that will aid your digestion and also lower your risk of a heart attack.

Drinking fluids might be the most important factor in the survival of human beings.

1. Water

Water is the ideal beverage, with zero calories, which is why I carry around my aluminium container wherever I go. There’s no reason to buy bottled water, since tap water is often just as good, and it’s free. As for flavored water, that is mostly a total rip-off, and also unhealthy, since it can be very high in sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Everyone knows that water keeps you hydrated, which is important because every single cell in your body needs it in order to absorb nutrients and expel waste products. But drinking plenty of water also keeps your skin moisturized and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Consuming a good amount of H2O can help you lose weight because it suppresses your appetite, so you don’t eat as much. Very useful around Thanksgiving!

Love all of them except milk. As a vegan I only drink almond, soy or rice milk.
Thanks!

Thanks. Love water and green tea. Really tried to like soymilk but i don´t. Will try almond milk, sound delicious.

I'm surprised almond milk didn't make the list under the organic milk and soy milk category. Almond milk is actually very good for you if you are steering away from dairy/harmful casein in milk and if soy milk is not produced as USDA Organic or Non-GMO certified.
