Beverages – Information on Beverages good and bad.

juice can almost help you more than a traditional anti-fever pill if you

have a high fever. But how can we make the right choice out of the numerous

beverages and choose the one that is tasty and at the same time rich in


So, juices:

Carrot juice. Supporters of healthy lifestyles consider carrot juice

to be almost the elixir of life. There is a certain amount of truth in

that. No other juice contains that much carotene. Besides, in carrot juice

there is cesium salt, phosphorus and iron that our body needs so much.

The juice improves appetite and digestion; it strengthens teeth and also

our nervous system; it extends the body’s resistance to different

infectious diseases, and it has no equal in increasing vitality. But it

is necessary to have it in small quantities and after consulting a doctor.

There have been cases when zealous fans of carrot juice, instead of becoming

pink cheeked, got that yellow color on their faces. Doctors call it “reversible

complexion pigmentation as a result of carotene overdose.”

Apricot juice. This juice is rich in potassium, which strengthens the

cardio muscle and doesn’t let excessive liquid linger on the tissues.

That is why it is highly recommended to have apricot juice if you have

cardiovascular diseases accompanied by edema. But diabetics and the obese

should be careful with apricot juice due to the high level of sugar content.

Orange juice. This juice is great in all weathers, but it is especially

valuable during cold winters due to the high content of vitamin C and

glycosides. Orange juice keeps you in tone, and rejuvenates and strengthens

blood vessels. That’s why doctors recommend having it for atherosclerosis

and hypertension. However, you’d better say no to orange juice if

you suffer from gastritis with acidity or ulcers. Being a low-calorie

product, orange juice is suitable for young ladies trying to lose weight.

Pineapple juice. Pineapple juice contains a unique natural substance

- bromeline, which is a perfect fat burner and rejuvenates the body. This

juice is also recommended as a medicine for kidney diseases and tonsillitis.

Tomato juice. There is a lot of ascorbic acid, iron and carotene in

tomato juice. At the same time, this product combines nutritious qualities

with being low calorie. There is almost no cellulose in this juice and

those suffering from alimentary organ diseases can easily include this

juice in their diet. Moreover, tomato juice heightens potency as it contains

lycopene. So make sure your soul mate has a glass before going to bed.

Apple juice. This one has almost all the qualities of all the juices

mentioned above. It is low calorie and it is useful for anemia since there

is a lot of iron in it. Besides, it has a miraculous power to turn out

renal calculus. Pectin acid, that apples contain, acts as absorbents and

purges the body of impurities. Apple juice is extremely useful for those

who have lung disease and often suffer from bronchitis, and it is also

necessary for chain smokers to have at least one glass of apple juice

per day, since it improves respiratory functioning.

Grape juice. This juice has a favorable affect on heart functioning,

preventing thrombus formation. It has been proven by recent research that

grape juice is even more effective in heart attack prophylaxis than aspirin.

Herbal teas – miraculous power of herbs.

Refreshing tonic phytoteas (tisanes) have entered our lives together

with the healthy lifestyle fashion. The French word “tisane”

now means a drink made from grass or any vegetative stuff - starting with

chamomile and finishing with a mix of exotic plants such as rosehip or

hibiscus. Though we call such beverages herbal teas, there is seldom a

tea leaf in them. As a rule, there is just a small amount of half-fermented


Phytoteas division into groups is quite relative. Depending on their

function, we can classify them into medicinal, prophylactic and “everyday;”

depending on the stuff used, herbal teas can be fruit, flower and mixed.

They are also distinguished according to the “directions”

- diabetic, children’s, common and ethnic. There are tisanes that

people have to maintain for the same stable weight - one such recipe made

of Indian lotus leaves and palm catechu leaves was invented by the Chinese

thousands of years ago. Some mixtures containing yohimbine tree bark contribute

to the high potency. The so-called “everyday” teas have some

tonic and restorative qualities. Of course, “everyday” tisane

efficiency cannot compete with medicinal teas, which are characterized

by striking therapeutic properties. However, it’s better to have

medicinal teas only after having consulted your doctor.

Miraculous power of herbs.

When choosing an herbal tea, it’s important not to base your choice

only on your gastronomic preferences (though they are essential too).

It is necessary to analyze the health-giving qualities of tisane and also

to find out if you are allergic to it.
