Summer Beverages to Be Aware Of
Too much consumption of any type of alcohol is clearly bad for you, but did you know that beer can be a trigger for high uric acid? A high uric acid level can cause you to be at higher risk for high blood pressure, kidney disease, obesity, or diabetes.
Sweet tea can be such a treat in the summertime. However, certain sweet tea recipes are known to contain more than twenty percent sugar. That more than some sodas. Stay healthy this summer and consider either a low calorie sweetener or drinking unsweet tea.
It can be quite common to want to consume multiple energy drinks on a hot summer day, but drink with caution. Energy drinks typically contain lot of caffeine. Try to limit yourself to approximately no more than 400 mg of caffeine per day.
You'd think that a juice with fruit in it would be an automatic healthy drink, but this isn't always the case. Some fruit juices contain quite a bit of sugar and should be drank sparingly.
While sports drinks may contain a good amount of sodium and cal help you replenish your electrolytes, be aware of the sugar content too. Too much sugar can be bad for the enamel on your teeth.
