Personally, I love the taste of 120/Life. That being said, I know that mixing it with other healthy options can really enhance the drink and make things more fun. With that in mind, I thought I should offer up a handful of suggestions on how to make it more enjoyable for those of you who do not share my feelings about the flavor… because, after all, drinking it is a deliberate act to move oneself toward better health and better numbers!
Here is how to control high blood pressure while drinking something you enjoy!
Healthy Drink #1: The Citrus & Seltzer
Description: Add 8 ounces of water or seltzer, along with some unsweetened lemon or lime juice or apple cider vinegar.
The water or seltzer will dilute the flavor and the lemon, lime and/or apple cider vinegar will cut the sweetness and help protect the nitric oxide production, while hardly increasing your caloric intake from the drink.
Healthy Drink #2: The Fruit Amplifier
Description: Add 1-2 ounces of a fruit juice of your choice (i.e. apple, cranberry, pomegranate, grape, watermelon).
Only adding 1 ounce will hardly increase the calorie value of the drink, while adding some sweetness. Additionally, if the juice you choose is watermelon, cranberry or pomegranate, you're controlling your high blood pressure while drinking something tasty!
Healthy Drink #3: The Coconut Companion
Description: Add 4-8 ounces of an unsweetened coconut water, like Harmless Harvest’s Harmless Coconut Water.
In some studies, coconut water has been shown to be helpful with controlling high blood pressure. Depending on the brand you choose, it will also add a hefty helping of potassium, which is important for blood pressure control, while adding only 30-60 calories to your drink.
Healthy Drink #4: The Smooth Shaker
Description: Add 120/Life to your morning vegetable/fruit shake, without dairy or protein powder.
I would lean more heavily on the vegetable portion of this rather than the fruit, 120/Life already contains fruit. If you choose to include spinach or arugula in your shake, your nitric oxide production will get a boost as well!
Hopefully that helps you and/or your loved ones out. And no matter how you like to enjoy 120/Life, don’t forget to drink a bottle every day!
Here’s to your health!
