Do We Need Health Drink ?

Updated on November 9, 2009

With consume health drink make the weak and tired body become fresh. Even the fat body become slim in a few week. We know that many advertisement shown the health drink in television everyday. Health drink is not only to relieve thirsty, but there are some nutrients inside this drink, such as vitamins and minerals. Many people believe it can give benefit for our healthy.

These health drinks were sold in various packaging and it looks interesting. We could see these product in the bottle or in the practical packaging, like powders and tablets shape. Health drink should be consumed during adapted to our conditions.We could consume health drink when we need energy to work or activities. These are several types of health drinks:

Enery Drinks

We feel fresh after consume the energy drink. Many people use this drink to restore stamina. Fresh sensation of this drink comes from several kind of vitamins. Start from B and C vitamin and taurine also, has function as a triggering metabolic system. With these vitamins, energy substances such as carbohydrates can be processed faster with better result.

Fiber Drink

Recently many fiber drink was sold in the market. With many banefit like good for defecation and also reduce fat. When mixed with cold water become jelly. We can found this drink with carious flavor, like orange, grape, strawberry. This jelly makes us felt full in our stomach. Fiber is very useful to the body. With fiber remaining food in the intestines could easily removed. So the toxin in the body is not absorbed by the blood. Fiber drink help us when we don't like to eat the fiber food like vegetables and fruits. Be careful with high fiber because it can irritate the gastric and cause bleeding in the intestines.

Isotonic drinks

After exercise the body felt tired and wanted to get drunk to relieve thirst. When doing some exercise and heavy activity, we lose a lot of liquid comes out through the sweat. The liquid is electrolyte substance, such as sodium and potassium. The benefits of isotonic drinks can replace the electrolyte substances that come out of the body. It also a good consumed during diarrhea or dehydration. and good for healing ulcers and dry throat.

Slimming drinks

We don't want the fat in our body disturb us in activites. People doing some diet want to slim in a short times. Many people believe that slimming drink can reduce fat automatically. But this myth is absolutely wrong. We get a side effect in frequent urination. When this happen regularly giveĀ  bad effect to our body. We lose the electrolyte substance that makes our bodies become weak. type of this drinks harmful if consumed in the long term.

Herbal drink

This is a traditional drink which contain vegetables or fruit. Even spices can be made herbal drinks. Like ginger such as ginger, lemongrass, basil leaves, lemon. This is good for our healthy. There is no side effect by consume this drink. In my country it called "JAMU". It can healing many light disease, such as cough, influenza, fever, high blood pressure, dizziness, tired and listless. we can get all the ingredients from nature. Vegetable and fruit we can found it in a juice. We can mix together with certain dose.

Be Careful......

Although have many benefit for our healthy, but we have to be careful with types of this drink, except herbal drink. Because many health drink was made in factory, containing many chemical substance. Consuming this drink regularly in long term could aggravate kidney function. When we add many substance from outside and must be eleminated by body, will cause disruption of the kidney.

Because the effect is increasing our stamina, we unconsciously consume this drink day by day and the dose also increased. Health drink should not be mixed with other drinks, such as alcohol or drugs like antibiotics, analgesic and other pain killer. Can lead the coma and eliminate the efficacy of drugs that we drink. Better consult with doctor before consume this drink, maybe we have a problem with the heart, blood pressure, diabetic or kidney. I hope we also fresh by choosing the best health drink. Do you have experience with kind of this drink? Do you feel the benefit by drinking the health drink?

      Nephew, I drink a lot of protein shakes with the "super food" juice if I can get it at a good price. Or I use the Acai juice, Goji, or something similar, I use a lot of frozen fruit (easy to keep frozen). I like bananas of course. I put some spirulina in the mix and I'm good to go! God bless Prasetio!

      Informative Hub, prasetio30. Health drinks can be great in moderation, but can also be very expensive. Pure, clear water is one of the healthiest things we can drink

      I appreciate the fact that you listed the pros and the cons of drinking health drinks. In the end, I agree with Pete Maida that only people doing high intense exercise (or people doing strenous work on hot days) should need to worry about using these drinks as a way to quickly replace lost electrolights.

      These things can be useful but I think a lot of them are over hyped. You can stay healthy by eating properly. Only people doing high intense exercise should need to worry about quickly replacing electrolights and things like that.
