6 health drink alternatives.

People born before 1960 in India may be aware of several homemade drinks but may not know they are equally not aware that they are extremely potent and can replace any the so called ‘health drinks’ that we see in the shelves of supermarkets.
For every ailment, I was given a drink that would make me fight the malady. There were health drinks to fight fever, cold, jaundice etc. There were drinks during and after pregnancy.

I must admit over the years those homemade drinks gave way for other variants that tasted better than raw herbal concoctions.

If you are one of those who are into healthy drinks but do not want to shift into the natural ones, you can try the following alternatives for modern day health drinks.

1. Purple grape juice is ideal as a health drink because it is rich in antioxidants, which are good for the heart. Experts are of the opinion that this is an ideal health drink for all ages because it is not only a good source of anti-oxidants but of vitamin C as well!

2. Cranberry juice. Doctors usually recommend this health drink for those who experience gall bladder problems. But, ordinary people can drink it to protect themselves from having bladder infections that are recurrent. It is also a good source of your daily dose of Vitamin C.

3. Vegetable juices. If you don’t have time to prepare natural veggie juices on your blender, it is best to grab a carton of vegetable juice in the market. Vegetable juices can be considered as a great health drink especially to those who are into salty foods such as chips because it contains natural properties that can wash away too much salt in the body that leads to weight gain.

4. Soy milks. For milkshake lovers, soy milks are the perfect health drink for you. Today, there are so many ready-to-drink soy milks in almost all health stores and grocery stores nearby.
