Healthy Drinks

In a market flooded with healthy drinks, it's becoming difficult to discern between what's actually healthy for you, and what claims to be healthy. Take fruit juice, for example. Strategically placed amongst the real fruit juices of your local grocery aisle are so-called 'fruit' juices. Oftentimes, these contain very little juice (sometimes as little as 5% juice) and loads of sugar. The naive consumer may very well think they're drinking juice. Diet soda is another. Many contain no sugar or zero calories, but even with all of those zeros on the side of the label there's not much healthy about it: Heavy consumption of artificial sweeteners can contribute to high blood glucose levels and a thicker waistline.

I've been turning to probiotic drinks as a natural and honest alternative to the sugary drinks. Bio-K Plus' Strawberry Fermented Milk Probiotic is one of those. It not only has a fresh, natural taste and smooth texture, but it can be consumed any time of day, and by just about everyone. Unlike your 'fruit juices' and diet colas, it contains no sugar or artificial flavors. Every ingredient, from the skim milk powder to the strawberry concentrate, is 100% natural.

These days, we're hard-pressed to find a safe and natural option that is not only healthy to drink, but assists in our overall health, as well. There are certainly very few drinks on the market like probiotic drinks that are able to boast containing no artificial flavors that help boost your immune system.

The next time you're at your grocer or local health food store, rather than buying what you think is fruit juice or diet 'whatever', give a probiotic drink a try. Your body and family will thank you.
