Water

People most often forget to drink the most important drink in the world - water. Water is the most important drink for the body and you cannot replace it completely with any other beverage. According to The Institute of Medicine, it is recommended for men to drink at least 13 cups of water per day, while women should drink at least 9 cups of water. Besides, water is essential for the kidneys to function healthily.

This natural and powerful drink helps us to stay hydrated and remove waste products. Don’t take dehydration for granted. Dehydration has led to increased fatigue, anger, and confusion as well as mood problems and decreased vigor. Drinking water also helps maintain a healthy heart rate and blood pressure.

Kombucha
 
Kombucha is a great drink, like other healthy fermented foods, that promote healthy bacteria in the gut. Healthy bacteria help to aid in digestion and in the absorption of vitamins and minerals. As kombucha contains antioxidants, it can kill harmful bacteria in your body. But, don’t overdrink it. One kombucha a day can provide you with healthy gut flora.

Coconut Water
 
You may have seen how bloggers around the world adore drinking coconut water and post tons of pictures on social media. The truth is, the flavor of this tropical drink doesn’t fit everyone’s taste. But drinking coconut water can help you to hydrate the body and provide big amount of potassium. Potassium helps in maintaining a healthy heartbeat and regulating blood pressure. Although drinking coconut water is safe for most adults, drinking too much can cause stomach upset or increasing level of potassium in the blood.
