Healthy Drinks to Add to Your Routine

Healthy Drinks to Add to Your Routine

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I don’t like to drink my calories unless I’m having a smoothie or a chai tea latte. Like most people, I try to stick to healthy drinks, like water and tea. Lately, I’ve been into some very unique choices in the form of CBD infused tea and birch water.

Healthy Drinks – Yönalé Birch Water

When I first heard about a drink made from the water flowing through birch trees, I was both intrigued and apprehensive. What exactly is birch water and how does it taste?

To learn more about how Yönalé is made, we first must travel to Finland. Well not actually travel, though it would be nice. I’ve always loved the Scandinavia/Nordic region of Europe. But I digress…

Every spring the roots of Finnish Birch trees begin to absorb the nutrients found in the water and soil. These nutrients, along with the water, accumulate in the sap of the tree. Due to pressurization, the sap begins to flow up the tree towards the leaves. The increase of sap, along with its flow to the top of the tree, is also given a boost by sun and evaporation.

Because this phenomenon is very short-lived, there is only a small window of time to harvest the water from the trees. Regardless, the makers of Yönalé take special care during the extraction process. While they want to harvest as much water as possible, they don’t want to harm the trees. They are big believers in practicing responsible foresting, while also preserving its delicate ecosystem.

Health Benefits of Birch Water

Birch water isn’t just another fancy water, it’s loaded with electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and prebiotics. Additionally, it may also offer many health benefits, including:

  • Help reduce muscle soreness and fatigue
  • Won’t raise insulin levels (low GI)
  • Supports liver and kidney functions
  • Help reduce cellulite & lower cholesterol levels
  • Boosts energy and immunity

Who knew you could get so much from a tree? Now let’s talk about the taste. Yönalé is available in two flavors, Original and Bilberry. The Bilberry is a bit tarter than the Original, but both are an acquired taste. The flavor is a bit earthy and does take some getting used to at first. I find that the colder the water is, the better the flavor. Regardless, I do find Yönalé to be very hydrating and refreshing, especially after a workout.

Healthy Drinks – Buddha CBD Teas

When I’m not drinking water or smoothies, I like to enjoy a nice hot cup of tea, especially in the winter. It just warms me up, body and soul, with its healthy goodness. Lately, I’ve also been adding some CDB to my healthy drinks.

CBD is all the rage these days, and for good reason. It offers a myriad of health benefits, including pain relief, reducing anxiety, improving sleep, reducing the risk of seizures, and even fighting cancer. You can take CBD in many forms, from tinctures to topical creams. So, of course, I was curious to try a tea infused with CBD.

Available in four flavors (Chamomile, Matcha Green, Peppermint, and Turmeric & Ginger), Buddha CBD Teas contain 5 mg of CBD. What does this mean exactly?

Buddha CBD Teas use 100% hemp-derived, water-soluble CBD. Because the CBD particles are nanosized, you actually get the benefits of the CBD because it can dissolve, or be incorporated, into the tea. This doesn’t mean you are going to get high from the teas, as they don’t contain THC. They simply contain the cannabinoid that can help the cannabinoid receptors in your body work better. These receptors are found in the immune system and designed to fight pain and inflammation.

The Benefits of CBD Tea

What I like most about the Buddha CBD Teas is I get more than the just the CBD benefits. I also get to enjoy these tasty healthy drinks, or teas, with their own soothing benefits.

  • CBD Peppermint Tea (my favorite) – contains the highest quality peppermint available in non-bleached tea bags. Aids in digestion, reduces stress and cools the body.
  • CBD Matcha Green Tea – sourced from Japan. Reduces free radicals and calm’s the mind and body.
  • CBD Chamomile Blend – paired with healing lemon balm and soothing lavender. Helps soothe and calm the mind and body.
  • CBD Turmeric & Ginger Tea – a combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory rich turmeric, ginger and black pepper. Helps settle the stomach and calm the mind.

All four of these teas are extremely delicious and soothing. They are a warm beginning to a cold winter day, or a soothing ending to a long, stressful day. While the Peppermint is my favorite, I adore all four teas. Each is full of flavor. If you’re looking for a nice introduction to CBD, I highly recommend Buddha Teas. The 5 mg of CBD is pretty low so you won’t notice any major difference, but over time they may help improve the function of your CBD receptors.
