Are There Real Benefits To A Health Drink?

By Edmond Wilson

There’s health drink a plenty out there within the world and they are becoming more and much more popular. With so many different health drinks out there it’s becoming confusing to the average consumer regarding what will benefit them and why it will benefit them. If you want a health drink to replace a meal for instance, you will be able to find all kinds of recipes devoted to that.

People drink so much soda and juice a day that it is causing teeth problems, diseases, and weight gain. Drinking health drinks instead could be a better way to prevent weight gain or cause weight loss, protect your teeth, and prevent other diseases. Drinking soda every day can cause kidney stones and within the long run it will destroy your kidneys. Not only that but not many people are getting enough calcium in their diet. Children are growing up to be unhealthy and fragile thanks to not getting all of the nutrients that they need to be stronger.

Health drinks aren’t new although many people would like to think that they’re. The Ancient Chinese made health drinks and believed that it would benefit them in regards to health, energy, and even happiness. In fact, teas were discovered in 2737 BC when a servant to an emperor accidentally dropped a dried leaf into the water that he would insist on boiling when he drank it. It was still given to the emperor and he found it to be not only delicious but refreshing.

If you are active, drink alcohol, or other things that cause dehydration your best bet is to find a drink that provides electrolytes amongst other minerals. Sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade have a great deal of benefits and will help you when dehydrated. In fact, these can help with simple headaches too as dehydration is typically the issue. There have been a lot of changes, especially with sports drinks that were meant to hydrate and energize since they’ve come about. A long time ago American ranchers would have what was called switchel. Switchel was a mixture of molasses, water, and vinegar. That is how that all started. Now the gross vinegar and molasses has been replaced with things such as sodium, potassium, and sugar.

To be sure that you are getting enough liquid ingested, it’s best to find a taste that you like and that will promise that you take in more of the minerals that you would like. It’s best to keep it simple with the drinks. Use the ones that don’t have extra additions to it unless it’s organic. Make sure that if all you want is hydration and electrolytes avoid the drinks with an excessive amount of caffeine.

If you want to do meal replacement in regards to a nice drink it is best to simply make smoothies with all of the beneficial nutrients that you’re looking for. This is the time where we can get all of the nutrients we need in drinks, but please also remember the reality that you have to actually eat properly too.

There are several different health drinks on the market today, and knowing what’s what is the key to getting the results you want. Check out my website to learn more about health drink products.
