Here’s the rundown on the four best beverages to drink for your fitness and health.
Our bodies are mostly made of water, plus water has an incredible roster of benefits for your body. It has no calories or sugars either, which is a definite plus for people that are looking to slim down. It flushes away toxins and is one of the purest substances for our bodies.
However, the downside to water is that it doesn’t contain electrolytes. If you’re running the distance or working out intensively for more than an hour, you’ll need to replace the electrolytes your body is losing as you sweat.
Enhanced water comes in many forms, the most popular brand of it being Vitamin Water. As the name suggests, Vitamin Water and comparable brands of enhanced water add more vitamins to your diet. It’s also sweeter than water which makes it a great choice for people trying to get on track with fitness who need to cut out soda. Unfortunately, enhanced water tends to carry with it calories and sugar, in some cases, as much sugar as a can of soda. While it’s better for you than soda, it’s not that much better.
