Tell me what you drink - and I will tell you what you are sick with. Today this wisdom is very relevant, because often we have a very distant idea of the drinks that we pour into ourselves in liters. Meanwhile, the right drinks mean as much as the right nutrition.
The most useful drink was and remains freshly brewed tea. Home collection of black, green or red teas can be replenished with wonderful herbal teas, charged with the energy of nature itself. Each such tea has a lot of useful properties and does not contain a single gram of "chemistry".

Freshly squeezed juices are a useful addition to your daily diet. Their regular use saturates the body with useful substances, improves metabolism, strengthens the immune system and removes excess fluid from the body. The main thing to remember is that you need to drink such juices immediately after preparation. In the stagnant juice, harmful bacteria multiply, and the beneficial properties lose their strength. In addition, individual contraindications should be taken into account.
Apple juice removes toxins from the body and stimulates the intestines. It is useful for anemia, atherosclerosis, diseases of the lungs, liver and bladder. However, it is contraindicated for ulcers, gastritis and pancreatitis. Citrus juices not only replenish the body's reserves of vitamin C, but also strengthen blood vessels well.

Pineapple juice is indispensable for those who are strenuously losing weight or leading an active lifestyle, since it effectively burns fats and saturates the body with useful substances.

This juice will also help those who suffer from insomnia, stress and nervous exhaustion. At the same time, excessive enthusiasm for beet juice can lead to various allergic reactions or indigestion.
The recognized champion among healthy drinks is kefir. Lactic acid creates a favorable microclimate in the stomach, in which all nutrients are absorbed much faster and practically without residue. Nutritionists advise drinking a glass of kefir a few hours before bedtime. Firstly, it dulls the desire to pamper yourself with something tasty at night looking. Secondly, it relieves the stress accumulated during the day and immerses you in pleasant relaxation.
Kefir takes care of the intestines best of all, providing it with beneficial microflora, thereby creating a reliable shield against harmful bacteria. It helps the body recover in a matter of days after taking antibiotics for a long time. Doctors recommend being treated with kefir for dysbiosis, anemia and some allergic diseases. On top of that, it is the best dietary dish to help improve metabolism, digestive processes and burn excess calories quickly.
Do not forget about the equally useful counterparts of kefir. The lowest-calorie of them is yogurt, obtained from fermented milk. It removes toxins and toxins from the body, improves skin color and hair condition, ideal for fasting days. Ryazhenka is another fermented milk product obtained from baked milk with sourdough. This drink normalizes the functioning of internal organs and digestion. It is especially useful for children, pregnant and lactating women. And if you drink a glass of fermented baked milk after a hearty dinner, the heaviness and discomfort will go away by themselves. Despite a whole range of useful properties, nutritionists do not recommend completely surrendering to the power of fermented milk drinks, limiting themselves to a couple of glasses a day.
Choose only the right drinks for yourself and your family. May recovery bring not only benefits, but also joy.
