The research shows that drinking more than 5 cans of fizzy drinks a week is linked to significantly higher levels of violence amongst teenagers. One would imagine that similar effects would in some degree apply to adults too.
This weekend, try out this simple but healthy fizz free drink packed full with antioxidants and vitamins! All you need are:
- Half a glass of cranberry juice
- Half a glass of carrot juice
- A dash of freshly squeezed lemon
Mix these together and you’ll have a glass full of a fizz free, power packed health giving drink.
Cranberry juice is rich in Vitamin C and dietary fibre. Its various health benefits include preventing bladder and urinary tract infections, lowering bad cholesterol, fighting colds and preventing stomach ulcers and cancer. It also helps emulsify fat deposits in the body.
Carrot juice is rich in Vitamins A and C. It helps prevent heart disease, certain cancers, helps with eyesight, diabetes and helps reduce the risk of strokes. (Check Newsletter of 12/08/11 for more benefits of carrots).
Now which would you rather have; the good health or the violent streak?
Have a peaceful week!
