What’s your wake up drink in the morning?
You wake up in your nice warm bed in the morning, stretch and contemplate the day ahead, but first your body is telling you it needs a revitalizing drink, but which drink is best first thing in the morning?
Most experts will tell you the very first thing you should reach for is water. It is natural, it contains all the elements that our bodies are craving but for many people it’s one of the last things they consider after options such as tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk, and fruit juices.
Most people in Britain, according to many studies, don’t have a good night’s sleep and instead of reaching for water instead switch on the kettle and prepare a brew of tea or coffee. The caffeine hit brings people alive from their slumber and you don’t get more caffeine than in certain brands of energy drinks, which increasingly are being drunk as the first drink of the day, particularly amongst young professional types.
Whilst coffee is extremely popular as a wakeup drink, nutritionists recommend tea as the first drink of the morning as it contains a wealth of health benefits including polyphenols. But there is another option hot water with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
Whilst nutritionists may disagree which drink is the best to start your day, they all agree that drinking plenty of fluids each and every day is a vital part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
