The least healthy beverages

Sadly, the least healthy beverages are the most commonly found amongst the healthy beverages.  

They are still far better than the toxic drinks that are available everywhere. These harmful drinks are known to all. They are legions and can be classified into 3 categories:

  • Sodas and syrups
  • Industrial or pasteurized fruit juices
  • Alcoholic drinks

These drinks are real toxic bombs filled with synthetic sweeteners, flavors, colorings, etc.

They are automatically toxic for our health no matter how much and often we consume them.

No, here we are talking about the least healthy drinks that are only organic, not industrial.

These drinks can be consumed in small quantities but are not recommended for two significant reasons:

  • their high sugar content
  • the treatment they have undergone, such as roasting (tea, coffee)

Among the least healthy drinks, we found two beverages that are the most consumed worldwide: Black Tea and Coffee.

Black Tea

Black tea is oxidized and fermented. When heated, it loses some of its antioxidants, which is why green tea is preferred.

Black tea is consumed for its taste, aroma, and stimulating effect, because it contains alkaloids such as caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline.

These psychostimulant alkaloids are also contained in coffee, cocoa, guarana, mate and kola nut.

Black tea is not without interest for its polyphenols, such as flavonoids, which are important antioxidants.

It also contains, in varying quantities depending on the tea, vitamins, and minerals, but also tannins that can reduce their absorption.

For black tea, it’s all a question of quality and reasonable quantity.

Coffee, along with black tea, is one of the most consumed drinks in the world.

The real problem with coffee is its roasting, which leads to the formation of undesirable molecules that are harmful to our body.

Among other things, this leads to the formation of AGEs (Advanced Glycation End products), and acrylamide (found in roasted foods, including French fries for example).

Coffee can therefore quickly become problematic and strongly acidify the body.

Avoid it as much as possible, and if not, consume a 100% Arabica organic coffee with a soft roast from time to time.

Coffee does not quench thirst, on the contrary, it dehydrates and cuts off the sensation of thirst.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to see people whose only beverage of the day is… cups of coffee.
