Super Hyrdration Solutions
Yummy tasting super-nutrition drinks can be a huge factor in staying hydrated and, at the same time, giving your body nutrients in an easily-absorbed form.
The absolute hands-down favorite for super-nutrition hydration here at Chellaberry is Zeal by Zurvita! Find out about the amazing Super-nutrition in Zeal here.
Chellaberry recommends 1-3 servings of Zeal a day for optimal wellness. See my testimony article on Zeal HERE
A high-quality super-nutrition drink you may enjoy is Beyond Tangy Tangerine by Youngevity. Beyond Tangy is packed with nutrients and has an extremely high antioxidant ratio value called the OREC value.
Yoli is another brand that Chellaberry has grown to enjoy. Yoli Fun is a low sugar, stevia sweetened way to drink clear liquids and stay hydrated, plus I can be used in warm water for a delicious tea-like beverage. Yoli Fun comes in several flavors including Lemon Lime and ______________. Yoli also has a product called Passion and one called Truth. Truth is an antioxidant drink; because of the higher nutrition content, Truth would be best taken at room temperature or cold vs mixed in warm water. Truth comes in delicious Pomegranate and Citrus flavors.
Kombucha has become a favorite with Chellaberry. Kombucha is fermented tea and sugar. The sugar is used up in the fermenting process, leaving a bubbly drink full of probiotics and enzymes. Synergy brand is good, as is Kevita and Live. Live brand has Cola Komubcha, Doctor Kombucha, and Root Beer. This brand does contain more carbs than some, but if you have a hankerin' for some good old soda, these Kombucha's will satisfy your craving with less than one-third the grams of sugar of regular soda.
Detoxifying and Herbal Teas can also be a great way to help yourself drink more liquids. Some add natural flavor with no adverse effects, while others are truly beneficial and even naturally medicinal. Chellaberry does not do as well with tea, even herbal teas; however, one favorite is Wakaya Perfection Ginger & Turmeric Tea. This delicious anti-inflamatory tea provides a daily dose of the highest quality turmeric and ginger known on the planet. This tea is deeply relaxing, so enjoy a few cups as you get ready for bed.
Calli Tea by Sunrider is a nutritious blend of pure green tea with chinese herbs. Fortune Delight by Sunrider is a purifying powder blend that tastes good both mixed in with Calli tea or alone. Both are delcious and detoxifying to the system.
Trim Healthy Mama Drinks
A cookbook with great low sugar, hydrating everyday drink recipes is the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook by Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison. These sisters have put together a fantastic, healthy living recipe book, and the drink recipes will surprise you with how good they taste! Go to their website at Trim Healthy Mama for more info on this excellent program. Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook and Trim Healthy Table are the books Chellaberry recommends to start the program. Trim Healthy Table has the THM plan in the back of the book.
Essential oils are excellent for flavoring water. Just a few drops of lemon, peppermint, lavender or tangerine oil are enough to not only flavor your drink, but really make a difference in your overall health. Chellaberry's favorite oils are from Young Living. Young Living has also come out with essetial oil blends, sweetened with Stevia, to put in your water. Delicious!
Drinks to avoid
Keep in mind that soft drinks are NOT hydrating; in fact, they are the opposite of healthy because of their extremely acidic nature. Coffee and Red Bull type caffeine-based energy drinks shouldn’t be considered part of your water intake. In fact, if you consume these beverages, your body will need MANY times more intake of water to make up for the dehydrating and acidic nature of these drinks!
Avoid drinks that are sweetened with Aspartame, NutraSweet, Sucralose (which is Splenda) and Saccharin like you’d avoid being exposed to the Bubonic Plague. These artificial sweeteners are extremely toxic to the cells of your body. In addition, avoid drinks that contain artificial dyes, as they are toxic to the liver.
Acceptable, low-glycemic, low-calorie sweeteners
Use Stevia as a plant-based, no-calorie sweetener. Experiment with different brands. For taste and purity, use Trim Healthy Mama Stevia and Sweet Drops liquid Stevia by Sweet Leaf brand. Sweet Drops, a favorite with Chellaberry, is offered in Plain Stevia, Vanilla, Caramel, Chocolate, and Coconut flavors.
