But fear not; if you're in the mood for something more than plain or flavoured water, there are plenty of nutrient-rich beverages to satiate your thirst. Water is unmatched when it comes to keeping hydrated, eliminating toxins, and sustaining healthy organs. But what if you and your family prefer other beverages covering 8-ounce cups of plain water each day? Here are alternatives to water that are cheap, simple to make at home, and free of artificial or sweet components.

What exactly is kombucha? One of the most popular healthy beverages available is this elixir. The health advantages of kombucha are well-known. Similar to other nutritious fermented beverages, effervescent kombucha is brimming with probiotics that support good gut microbes. These microorganisms support digestion and increase vitamin and mineral absorption in the body. Choose your favourite kombucha flavour and indulge in this nutritious drink. 

Red Wine 

You believed that red wine was solely suitable for calming and kicking back. Be sure to reconsider. Studies indicate that consuming any type of alcohol in moderation can help elevate HDL (the good cholesterol) and shield arteries from harm. Particularly present in red wine, resveratrol is an antioxidant that may also have additional health advantages, such as lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and preventing blood clots. Even your oral health could benefit from red wine! Consider drinking one glass every day, or vary things up with a hot glass of mulled red wine.

Hot Chocolate 

Who knew that sweets might be healthy? We've all heard about the health advantages of cacao, but combining it with milk, which is strong in calcium and frequently fortified with vitamin D, makes this antioxidant-rich beverage even healthier. Find and make a new hot chocolate recipe or make one with one of your preferred favourite recipes.
