Old School Beverages Tea, Coffee And Milk May Still Be The Best Health Drinks

January 13, 2011: 01:24 PM EST

Despite the growing popularity of sports drinks and vitamin-enhanced waters among athletes and consumers, research continues to confirm that traditional beverages tea, coffee and low-fat or chocolate milk are still the best beverages for nutrition, health and workout recovery. Science has verified the beneficial effects of tea, either green or black, as an antioxidant rich drink whose compounds counter cell-damaging oxidative stress associated with atherosclerosis, diabetes, dementia and cancer. Coffee is also packed with polyphenols and is richer in antioxidants than tea and fruit and vegetable juices. Coffee may have a beneficial effect on cardiovascular and neurological disease, as well as diabetes. And milk – rich in protein, calcium and vitamin D – benefits overall nutrition, bone density, weight loss, muscle-building and more.
