Have you ever thought about how it would be like if you could just walk into a supermarket and choose drinks with labels such as “be stronger”, “be smarter”, “lose more weight” or “improve your mental state”? Unfortunately, things don’t work like this, in fact, most of the drinks you find in supermarkets, even if they are labelled as “healthy” only add unwanted sugar and artificial additives to your body, thus decreasing your metabolism rate, making you gain weight and even expose you to various health problems.
Luckily, most of the unhealthy drinks that you see on the shelves of supermarkets have healthy alternatives that you can prepare at home, alternatives that are not only delicious and good for you, but can also target specific problems and improve your overall health. Since it’s a busy time of the year, we here at Teatox decided to share with you five drinks that help your mind stay sharp, keep you concentrated and well-rested. Let’s see what they are:
Whether you like it black, green or everything in between, tea is an excellent choice if you want to stimulate your brain activity, due to its high content of antioxidants that help your brain function properly and are even known to fight cancer cells. Drinking one cup of tea each day will help your body stay healthy and will keep your mind sharp and ready for life’s challenges. If you are also looking to lose a little bit of weight and get into shape, chose one of our Teatox blends.
This exotic fruit is high in antioxidants and has proven to be a helpful ally for improving the memory and your brain’s general activity. A daily dose of pomegranate juice can even slow down the aging process of your DNA and, in the long-run, help you be more concentrated and make better decisions.
Studies have shown that pomegranate juice can also improve the functions of your heart by keeping your arteries flexible and by reducing inflammation of the blood vessels. Also, drinking one cup of pomegranate juice each day can visibly improve your dental hygiene.
Dark Hot Chocolate
Who can resist a cup of hot chocolate? Even if we’re in the hot season, hot chocolate is the one drink that most of us still enjoy early in the morning or on rainy nights. But did you know that if you chose dark chocolate you can help your mind concentrate and improve the general activity of your brain? The flavonoids found in cocoa also help your blood vessels relax, thus decreasing your blood pressure and the risk of long-term damages to your brain. A cup of dark hot chocolate each day reduces cognitive deficiency and the risk of strokes, so if you are not a hot chocolate fan already, it’s time you became one.
Turmeric and Cinnamon Tea
One of the secrets of an active and healthy life, the turmeric and cinnamon tea is perfect if you want to improve your brain’s activity and keep your mind sharp and focus throughout the day.

A cup of cinnamon and turmeric tea each day is the perfect remedy for preventing most types of mental illnesses. Add a drop of olive oil in the cup and you are also helping your brain stay away from Alzheimer.
