Because of the high sugar, sodium and caffeine content in soda, it dehydrates the body and over a long period of time can cause chronic dehydration. Bad for the teeth– Drinking soda regularly causes plaque to build up on the teeth and can lead to cavities and gum disease.
Perhaps you already know that a can of regular soda is a sugar-drenched health hazard. And it’s not always cane sugar that you need to be aware of. Many years ago, the Coca-Cola company switched from using sugar to high-fructose corn syrup in their soda drinks because, with corn subsidized by the government, it became a much more affordable option. High-fructose corn syrup may not contain the word “sugar” but it’s as bad, if not worse, for your blood sugar and insulin levels than regular table sugar.
Luckily, we have here the tips and tricks on how to make your soda healthy.
1) Sparkling mineral water
I strongly recommend San Pellegrino, because it’s one of the very few mineral waters that contains sulfate ions.
Sulfur is an essential mineral, but most people don’t get enough in their diet. Sulfur helps cleanse & detoxify your body, protects against oxidative stress, boosts your immune system, and can even help support your joints.
2) Balsamic vinegar
It’s naturally a little sweet and a little tangy, and contains an abundant amount of energy- and longevity-boosting polyphenols.
One study indicates that the polyphenols in balsamic vinegar helped inhibit LDL oxidation, a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
To make the drink:
Simply add a couple tablespoons of balsamic to a glass, top with San Pellegrino, stir, and enjoy.
You can even do it in restaurants.Just ask the waiter to bring over the balsamic and add a few drops to your mineral water.
It may seem crazy, but balsamic vinegar is naturally sweet so this simple drink satisfies a sweet tooth AND a craving for carbonation.
