Buying Health Drinks - How to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck

by Cliff Smith

Man Drinking WaterWith so many "health drinks” to choose from today, it can be confusing to know which ones are really good for you.  Let's see if we can simplify that with a few tips for selecting the highest quality health drinks that will reward you with the most value for your money.

If you're thinking that water is the best health drink, you're close, but there are some healthier options to make your water intake more productive.  The health drinks we like are those that actually help water get into your cells more efficiently. 

When the cells of your body can easily soak up the water you consume, then waste and toxins are more successfully washed away.  This is how to cleanse and hydrate your internal cells, organs and tissues and feel tangible results, quickly.

So, here are some points to help you remember what you want and what you don't want in your health drinks.

What you don't want in health drinks:

  • Sugar
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Excess calories
  • Chemicals (preservatives, additives, or artificial flavorings)
  • Caffeine
  • Questionable ingredients such as Guarana, Taurine or medicinal herbs
  • Isolated vitamins (Synthetic re-creations of nature's vitamins do not provide the same benefits as whole food vitamins and minerals.  In fact, isolated vitamins are often flushed out in urine before absorption) 
  • Phosphoric acid or other acidic ingredients

In addition to checking ingredients and nutrition facts, it is also a good idea to explore how your health drinks are manufactured.

  • Do you know how the ingredients are grown, processed and packaged? 
  • Is there a whole food structure to any of the ingredients?
  • Are the beneficial nutrients concentrated? 
  • Are the nutrients carefully protected from high heat in the manufacturing process?   
  • Is the drink alkaline or acid?

Most of the time, the answers to these questions will be, "No".  The good news is that there are a few health drinks made with this kind of attention to detail.  They’re not easy to find, but searching online for natural health drinks or concentrated natural drinks will yield results.

Here are things we like to see in our natural health drinks:

  • No sugar
  • No artificial sweeteners
  • No chemicals
  • Very low in calories
  • Whole food nutrients
  • Active plant enzymes
  • Chlorophyll
  • Carefully processed and packaged to retain whole food structure
  • Super-concentrated antioxidants from the most beneficial nutrients made by nature
  • Totally alkaline ingredients to counterbalance all those acidic foods people eat

The alkalinity of your health drinks can play a major role in total body wellness.  Most processed drinks are very acidic.  Chemicals in some drinks can remove rust from a toilet, so imagine what they can do to your body.  Finding alkaline drinks with the most natural ingredients will help the body maintain a healthy pH balance.  An alkaline body is a healthy body, while an acidic one degenerates faster.  Select your beverages carefully to get the most bang for your buck.
