In tropical countries like the Philippines, summertime weather is always extremely hot. If you’re not careful enough and expose yourself under the blistering heat of the sun for a long time, you could get dehydrated in addition to sunburn. And dehydration, aside from heat stroke, by the way, can kill.
It is important to see to it that you drink enough fluids or juices before wading out into the summer heat. Keeping yourself hydrated is just as important as applying sunblock lotion to your skin; you will get protection while, at the same time, enjoying. The following are 5 of the refreshing of drinks that can be found locally to keep you hydrated (in addition to plain water or H2O) this summer:
Coconut water. Coconut water is by far one of the most refreshing natural drinks to consider. It contains the compound called cytokinins, aside from being considered as the best in replacing fluid loss to someone suffering from diarrhea, responsible for anti-ageing, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-thrombotic effects.
Calamansi juice. Known for its strong antibacerial, antiviral, a very good liver tonic, and immune-boosting properties, calamansi juice tastes great when served chilled and sweetened with honey.
Cucumber shake. Aside from the many nutrients you can get from cucumber like Vitamin A, folate, manganese, potassium, sulfur, silica, calcium, B-complex, and many more, its distilled 96% water content will make this little fruit of the melon family superior to ordinary water.
Watermelon juice. Simply cut the watermelon fruit into smaller pieces with the seeds removed and put them in a blender or a juicer. In a minute or two, you’ll have a thirst-quencher packed with lots of health benefits.
Camote or sweet potato tops juice. It is made by simply boiling the clean camote tops (leaves) for 4 to 6 minutes. Then, after removing the boiled leaves, you can pour on a pitcher or glasses and add honey. You can add ice cubes. Now, you’ll have not only nutritious, but one of the most unique refreshing drinks for the summer.
