We keep hearing about how fizzy drinks contain sugar, preservatives, and other nasties that aren’t good for us.
Still, we drink them, because it’s easy to ignore the experts, even though the effects of high sugar intake are terrifying.
This is why a teacher in Australia, Jacob Strickling, decided to illustrate the sugar content of a fizzy drink visually.
To put it simply, once you’ve seen it, it can’t be unseen:
Yep, that black sludge at the end of the video is what you’re putting into your body.
Sure, a cooldrink on a hangover can provide some temporary relief, but you’re better than that, because your body is a temple.
The good news is that there are equally tasty alternatives to your daily fizzy fix that will leave you feeling healthier and happier.
Take Sir Fruit and their range of real brewed, real bold, real low sugar ice tea.
Their range boasts one of the lowest sugar levels on the market, thanks to their traditional brewing process, using only freshly sourced tea leaves and flavours.
The great thing about this ice tea is that it’s made in a similar way to how you’d prepare a cuppa at home. Loose leaves are gathered and sealed in a monumental teabag, and then brewed to perfection.
Check out the Apple and Mint Ice Tea, which is hailed as the crispest couple:
For Sir Fruit’s blend, they’ve imported some actual green tea from China, and then combined it with rooibos from the Western Cape. They then deliciously infuse some mint and apple, both of which beautifully enhance the green palette they’ve got going here.
They also have an impressive range of healthy cold-pressed juices so that you can get your greens and vitamins in, in one tasty drink, a well as smoothies that are perfectly crafted to a ‘breakfast on the run’.
An extra five minutes in bed – score.
Kick that fizzy drink habit, friends – your body will thank you.
