Why Drink Natural Mineral Water Instead of Sugary Drinks.

 

Children and Adults in Ireland drink more sugary drinks currently than they ever did in the past. The calories in sugar-sweetened beverages are considered empty calories, meaning they have no nutritional benefit. Sugary drinks have been associated with lower quality diet, and higher body weight and general ill health. Switching to drinking Glenpatrick natural mineral water will have many benefits to everybody’s health.

 

For instance there was a survey conducted of a week’s food diary compiled by 25,000 men and women aged between 40 – 79 in Norfolk in England. Researchers confirmed that drinking a sugary drink a day and drinking water instead could cut the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to a quarter. It is very important to know how to identify sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs). SSBs include soda, sport drinks, fruit drinks and punches, sweetened coffee and tea, energy drinks, and other sweet drinks. As mentioned in our April Blog, understanding the importance of water for proper hydration is so important. Water should be the primary beverage for everyday consumption. This should be even more important for adults and kids engaged in routine physical activity.

 

 

Tips that can help:

– Ask your manager in work to source a water cooler. (Mains fed coolers have minimal cost)

– Ask your child’s school to allow students to carry water bottles in class. ( Most schools have drinking water fountains )

– Make water appealing and accessible. Add some mint leaves or slices of lemon, or lime.

– Reusable water bottles can make it easier to drink water on the go, and save money.

– Skip the extras when ordering coffee such as cream, chocolate syrup. etc

– Reduce sugar in tea and coffee

– Keep sugar-sweetened beverages out of the house.

 

Summary:

The regular consumption of sugary drinks has greatly increased over the past few decades. Most adults consume about 400 calories per day as beverages, and regular soda is the number one drink. The added sugars and calories in sugary drinks can really add up — so rethink what you drink! Use one or more of the tips provided to drink more water and get on the right track to living a healthier life.
