Green tea's antioxidants prevent heart disease. Green tea raises HDL, lowers LDL (good cholesterol). Less caffeinated than coffee, it's a good afternoon pick-me-up.

 Green tea

 Peppermint tea

Peppermint tea soothes stomachs and relieves stress. Sipping at your desk can relieve tension. Try a cup before bed if you have trouble winding down.


Milk is a bone-health superhero, containing calcium, potassium, and vitamin D. Strong runners' bones reduce stress fracture risk.

Flavour your own water

Adding cucumbers or watermelon to your water bottle can change your daily drink. Create your own herbal blends.

Coconut water

Coconut fluid, not coconut water. Contains more potassium than a medium banana. Sodium and magnesium are in coconut water. Avoid sugary, calorie-rich flavours.

 Beet juice

Beet juice lowers blood pressure better than drugs. Boosting endurance, nitric oxide-rich juice. Folate, vitamin C, and antioxidants are in juice. Beet-colored urine is fine.

 Hot cocoa

Replace sugary hot chocolate powder with cocoa powder and skim, soy, or almond milk. Cocoa flavanoids reduce blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and blood sugar.


Kefir is a milk-and-yeast fermented drink. Even more probiotics and protein than yoghurt.


Coffee (and caffeine) are hot topics in running. Coffee lovers and haters seem divided. Coffee improves running performance, according to research.

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar with potassium. Vinegar's acetic acid suppresses appetite and revs metabolism, say studies. 1-1/2 cups water, cider vinegar, molasses.
