Learn to find a healthy soft drink that will quench your thirst and care for your body with natural ingredients.
Love Your Bubbles Without The Trouble
Sometimes nothing tastes as good as the cool splash of flavor and soothing fizziness of soda. Soda provides chilling refreshment on a hot day, a compliment to your favorite foods, or a less jittery alternative on your coffee break. It is time to ditch the old soft drinks for a healthy soda.
Soda’s Fizzy Twisted History
Soda has been around since the late 18th Century when carbonated water was first developed in England and was just plain soda. Soda fountains in the early 19th Century put flavor in the bubbles and the sodas we still see in stores today were mixed up around the turn of the 20th Century, but were not very healthy. Colas often contained cocaine, although it was soon replaced by caffeine, as more sugar was dumped into the mix, and diet sodas seem like a chemistry experiment.
Healthy Alternatives In Your Glass
Instead, choose sodas, while considering your health, without sacrificing the flavor or sweetness you crave. Look for these ingredients.
- Cassava Root
Sweetens with health benefits such as prebiotics and carbohydrates your body can put to good use.
- Jerusalem Artichoke
