Hydration week: our favourite healthy buys
We all know the importance of good hydration. When around 60 per cent of the human body is made up of water, drinking regularly throughout the day is imperative, and helps increase energy levels, relieve fatigue, carry nutrients round your body and remove toxins.
While drinking water is your best, and cheapest, bet, sometimes it just won’t cut it. To make sure you stay topped up this Nutrition & Hydration Week, we’ve rounded up our favourite tipples for every situation:
For an energy boost
With organic guarana extract, ginseng and raw coffee bean extract, Scheckter’s Organic Energy Green Tea & Mint is sure to see you through that HIIT session, a park run or just a particularly tiring Monday.
For a gut-friendly glug
Hail in summer with the Coconut Summer Beach flavour from Captain Kombucha. Naturally fermented and with a subtle fizz, kombucha supports a healthy gut.
For a caffeine-free fix
With all the goodness of a cuppa without the caffeine, this quenching Rooibos Tea from Heath & Heather can be drunk any time of day (or night).
For a warming brew
A spiced herbal blend with ginger, galangal and golden turmeric, Pukka Organic Three Ginger Tea has a hearty kick to it. Expect warmed cockles.
For a refreshing cooler
Half organic fruit juice, half sparkling spring water, this peach fizz from Berry White is the perfect thirst-quencher for hazy, sun-drenched days.
For a twist on the classic
No one’s arguing that Mother Nature hasn’t provided us well with the gift of water. But Nuva have taken it one step further by infusing natural cucumber and mint extracts, for a delicious and refreshing spring water.
For a soothing sip
Nature’s salve, aloe vera, is just as good in beverage form as it is a skin-soother. Drink Holland & Barrett Aloe Vera Juice drink as is or mixed with water, to aid healthy digestion.
For an ayurvedic tonic
Nourish mind, body and taste buds with this vanilla latte blend from Turmerlicious. Based on the ancient Indian ‘golden milk’, this easy-to-prepare drink is dairy-free, and includes coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper and coconut blossom nectar.
