The 5 Healthiest Types of Drinks to Drink?

5. Kefir and Kvass – Two Popular Russian Drinks

These two Russian drinks have been around since ancient times, and not many non health addict Americans know about the two. Both of the drinks are fermented. Kefir is made from fermented milk, and Kvass is made from fermented stale dark, sourdough rye bread. Besides the fact that these two drinks are rich in Vitamins, their real, and very unique health benefits come from the beneficial bacteria that produce beneficial enzymes, aid digestion and promote healthy flora in your digestive tract.

Drinking these five drinks in a healthy rotation throughout the week will leave your body feeling absolutely amazing. All you have to do is stay away from things like soda and energy drinks (unless you drink healthy ones like FRS and Monavie) that load their drinks with caffeine and sugar, and you will actually find yourself with more energy throughout the day. Mixing these drinks with water during the week will be the healthiest thing you ever did.

    This is so informative. My mom was a cancer patient and the doctor strictly advised her to have soy milk.Though it is a little more expensive than other products, it is highly beneficial. Living healthy is the way today. Eat healthy, drink healthy, live merry!

    Very nice blog post and very informative. I do not juice my veggies but do eat many during the day. I agree about the fruit juice that it can have a huge impact on blood sugar, it is better to eat the whole fruit than drink the juice, worse yet, the prepackaged sugar added variety.

    I have never tried Kefer or Kvass, now I am thinking I should and also want to get the Vitamix machine as I hear it is a wonderful unit.

    I really am impressed with this information. I am usually in complete disagreement with mainstream nutritional insights.But I agree with everything here EXCEPT lowfat milk. I strongly believe that grassfed whole milk is healthier. The fats in whole milk are important for the absorption of many nutrients in the milk. I would also like to point out that soy can have a negative affect on thyroid function, so we all should just be causetions and aware of this.

    Truly, VitaMix is incredible. The price was off putting at first but I use mine 3-5 a day. I don’t eat dairy or soy, but I’m with you all the way with tomato juice. I had a serious burn last year and my doctor said maybe drinking fresh tomato juice would help heal it better. It’s all but invisible now, which surprised eventhe doctor who was certain I’d scar permanently.

    Buttermilk is very similar to kefir and is more readily available in North America and other western countries

    Love the orange “wizzing” into the glass :) I have found that the best juices are indeed homemade and drunk right after making them. My Juiceman Juicer and Vita Mix makes short work of just about anything I throw at it and until you try fresh carrot juice you don’t know what you’re missing.

    The beauty of kefir as a health drink is that you can completely control how “sharp” it gets. If it is too sour for you then don’t let it ferment for quite so long. It is very much a trial and error process but don’t be put off if your first few batches don’t taste as good as you want.

    A long fermentation time also develops more alcohol in the kefir. I have drunk the occasional kefir drink that left me feeling quite light headed. Drunk at 8 am in the morning!

    Since then I’ve found what suits me which is fairly short fermenting time.

    We should drink plenty of liquid daily. The five healthy drinks you mentioned here such as orange juice. green tea or vegetable juice homemade are excellent. Even drinking plenty of plain water can be of great use.

    Very informative post. I use soy milk and glad it made the list :-)

    Eat heaps of vegetables both raw and cooked so don’t juice any. Thanks for the information. Enjoyed the post.
