Instead of reaching out for cold drinks to quench your thirst, why not try natural drinks that are not only delicious but also help one feel energetic and rejuvenated.
Also, unlike the artificially flavoured and processed drinks, natural drinks don’t spike your blood sugar levels, said nutritionist Lovneet Batra.
As such, she took to Instagram to share five natural energy-boosting drinks.
“The good news is that there are plenty of natural energy drinks that can ramp up your energy levels without spiking your blood sugar,” said Batra.
Coconut water may be 95 per cent water, but it’s still a great source of energising minerals. Coconut water is a much healthier alternative and contains more than 10 times the potassium, and it’s a naturally sweet and refreshing drink.
Kombucha is a fermented tea that has a long list of health properties: B vitamins, glucuronic acid (a detoxifier), and loads of antioxidant-rich polyphenols. But what kombucha is best known for is its probiotic bacteria and acetic acid, which have been shown to boost energy levels.
Jaljeera is a refreshing drink and rejuvenates you with an instant bout of energy. This much-loved Indian beverage helps with digestion, as it soothes the stomach with its amazing ingredients that are known to treat pain caused due to abdominal cramps.
Sugarcane juice has protein, iron, potassium, and other essential nutrients that make it the ideal energy drink. It builds body fluids and helps with dryness, dehydration, and fatigue.
Sattu, called the ‘poor man’s protein, is rich in iron, manganese, and magnesium, and low on sodium. Sattu provides instant energy and also works as a cooling agent that further keeps the internal organs at ease.
“You don’t have to consume artificial energy drinks to get the energy boost you need. Try out these five natural energy drinks that are packed full of micronutrients to keep you healthy, active, and energised,” mentioned Batra.
