Best Drinks for Women’s Health (Slideshow)

Soy Milk

Women had previously been afraid to drink soy milk because there were rumors that it could harm those at risk for breast cancer. But there have been multiple studies showing that there is not only no associated risk, but soy milk can actually reduce the recurrence of breast cancer in survivors.

Tea

A cup of tea is packed with minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants which are beneficial for the body.” Dr. Verma tells us. Who knew this classic simple pleasure was also a great health drink? But tea drinking, according to an article published in the Harvard Women’s Health Watch, can actually lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Kale Smoothie

Increasing your consumption of kale and other dark leafy greens (like collards, spinach, and mustard greens) may help make your body unwelcoming to cancer cells.

Flax Seed Smoothie

According to a study published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacologyflax seed may actually improve cardiovascular health. Try grinding it finely and incorporating it into a smoothie.

Almond Milk

Almonds are packed with good fats — and replacing bad fats with good fats in your diet may help you lower your blood cholesterol levels, which is ultimately good for your heart.

A 5-Ounce Glass of Red Wine

There is substantial evidence to suggest that a truly moderate amount of any alcohol may be good for your heart, whether it’s beer, liquor, or wine. Other studies, however, have shown that red wine is packed with exceptionally good antioxidants.

Fresh Tomato Juice

Tomatoes are full of lycopene, an antioxidant that has been shown to actually stop cancer cell growth.

Banana Smoothies

“I recommend whole juicing and making your own smoothies,” Dr. Verma tells us. “Add vegetables and fruits that reflect the colors of the rainbow. The deeper and richer the color, the more plethoric are antioxidants and nutrients.”

On the National Osteoporosis Foundation’s list of foods that are good for your bones? Bananas. Really up your game by throwing spinach and strawberries in there for great bone-density building power.
