The Most Nourishing Beverages
What do you consider the most nourishing beverages? Here are my top 4.
They are all nourishing for different reasons. Tell me yours!
(To read easier, the text is repeated below the infographic.)
WATER is the most abundant and vitally important substance in the human body. It is unsurpassed in its ability to heal. It is truly necessary for optimum health. The water you drink should be as natural as possible. Clean water, directly from a spring or well, can be rich in many beneficial mineral ions. Tap water is commonly contaminated with harmful chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride. It is most healthful to drink tap water that has been treated with a carbon filter.
COCONUT MILK comes from the soft meat of a fresh, green coconut. It is very nourishing because it provides many trace minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and iron, plus the vitamins B, C, and E. The lauric acid in coconut milk has potent antiviral, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties. Coconut milk can be used in a drink, marinade, salad dressing, soup, sauce, or made into a yogurt-type dish. Look for whole, not “lite”, canned coconut milk without additives.
HERBAL and GREEN TEAS have wonderful medicinal properties that have been passed down in texts throughout the ages. The berries, barks, flowers, leaves, stems, and roots of various plants provide specific therapeutic actions when consumed in sufficient dosages. Green tea also has antioxidant properties from its many phytonutrients, especially the polyphenols called catechins. The medicinal and antioxidant properties in herbal and green teas need not involve the presence of caffeine, therefore the decaf forms are a healthy choice.
KOMBUCHA is a cultured, fermented beverage that is made from sugar, black tea, and special “mushroom” yeast. Kombucha aids in detoxification because it contains the powerful, liver-supportive substance glucuronic acid. Fermented foods and drinks contain beneficial, pro-biotic lactobacilli, which have the ability to relieve intestinal problems, enhance digestion, strengthen the sick, and promote overall wellbeing. Now common in some stores, kombucha is a refreshing, cold, fizzy, sweet, and often fruity drink, which is a great substitute for soda.
