The regular supply of water is vital for our circulation. Normally we need 2-3 liters of liquids per day and if we undertake sporting activities, then up to 10 liters. This means drinking the best spring or tap water, weakly brewed herbal teas or still mineral waters. The best drink is pure water. Cola and other industrial soft drinks are not recommended because of their high sugar content and taste additives. All fresh fruit vegetable juices and milkshakes or cocktails are not free liquids and therefore not suitable as thirst quenchers. They must first be digested and are therefore to be counted (when it comes to considering their calories) as a snack between meals. They need insulin and this blocks the burning of fat.
Fermented drinks are balm for our intestinal flora and should be consumed regularly. You will also find milk kefir, yoghurt and other suggestions for making your own fermentations under the heading
