Right now, what we need is to boost our strength and immunity by having healthy drinks. Since there is no vaccine available to combat coronavirus yet, this is the best health approach we can all follow.
There are several ways to improve our immunity. You can be pickier with the food you eat, take vitamins and supplements, and try to have a regular workout routine. But as mentioned, healthy drinks are a must as well. So what are the best ones that you can easily do at home? We have a quick list to help you.
Easy to Make Healthy Drinks
Ready to quench that thirst and live healthier?
Mixed citrus juice
You might want to make juice using different citruses such as grapefruit and orange. As we all know, these fruits contain high amounts of vitamin C. This can protect your cells from substances that can weaken your entire body. If you do not have enough vitamin C, your ability to heal wounds will be longer.
Another one is our list is carrot juice, which is high in vitamin A. For those who are not aware, this is also important to sustain a healthy body that could fight off diseases. In addition, carrots also have vitamin B-6, which is vital for producing antibodies.
Strawberry and kiwi smoothie
This is a crowd favorite, and even young ones will love it. Since strawberry is hard to juice, you might want to make a smoothie instead. Add it with milk, and you are all good. Who says a healthy drink should be bland? Enjoy this instead of drinking carbonated beverages. With this smoothie, you get a lot of vitamins of minerals, both from the fruits and the milk.
You have probably seen many tomato juice options at your favorite grocery store, but we urge you to make your own. Go natural as much as possible. Plus, you can avoid unnecessary ingredients. Tomatoes have good amounts of magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin B-9, and vitamin C. So this is is one of the healthiest drinks from this list.
Watermelon juice with mint
What better way to fight off sickness (and heat) but with a fresh watermelon juice. And to have more zing, you can add mint. Apart from having high amounts of Vitamin C, watermelon is effective for muscle soreness.
Spinach and apple smoothie
Spinach is another ingredient that can substantially boost your immune system. You can add apple and turn it into a tastier beverage.
And lastly, your good ol’ water is still the best. We recommend bringing your own water bottle or tumbler whenever you go out. This can save you a lot of money, and you are also doing your part to avoid further waste.
You can experiment with different fruits and vegetables to create the healthiest beverages. But make sure that you choose your ingredients. Choose a fresh one or go directly to the source so you can reap the maximum benefits. If you can skip the ready-made drinks from groceries, that would be a better option.
