We all know that water is the healthiest drink on the planet.  It has been drilled into our heads to drink 8 glasses of water a day.  Every where you go you see people carrying around water bottles which is definitely a good thing.  Water is much healthier than soda which was the hip thing to carry around not too long ago.  We just need to recycle those cute plastic bottles so they don't end up in a land fill somewhere.  Or better yet, invest in an aluminum or stainless steel reusable water bottle that is easy to clean.  Never the less, there are many other healthy drink options available today if you need a variation in your life from plain, boring water. 

Tea is one of the top three healthiest drinks and the most commonly consumed besides water.  Tea leafs diffused in hot water contain a wealth of antioxidants that boost our immune systems and protect against infections.  Along with ant-aging benefits, tea is also known to combat cancer causing cells.  It is often an alternative for non coffee drinkers or people trying to wean them selves off it.  Coffee has been known to cause an upset stomach if you drink too much on an empty stomach or if it's too strong.   Green tea protects the body from autoimmune disorders while it aids in digestion, promotes weight loss, and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. 

Grape juice can also boast one of the healthiest drinks ever!  It's often fermented and made into wine, brandy, or vinegar.  Like tea, it is high in antioxidants.  It's right up there with pomegranate juice!  Certain kinds of grape fruit juices as well as wine have high levels of polyphenols which can prevent cardiovascular illnesses.  It can also lower the risk of developing blood clots which can lead to heart attacks.  By adding these healthy drinks to your diet you will feel better mentally and physically.
