Health Drinks to adopt for National Obesity Week

January is a month of resolutions. Resolutions made in the hope of change. The change of bad habits to good ones.

This week, National Obesity Week kicks off an initiative led by the National Obesity Forum, an independent organisation of medical practitioners, to promote healthy living and encourage the UK to be that little bit healthier.

With 1 in 4 adults and 20% of children leaving primary school all considered obese, and with numbers expected to rise for the former to above 50% by 2050, the campaign for encouraging the UK to adopt a national New Year’s resolution and improve the nation’s health seems to be more important today than ever before.

To this end, we’ll be doing our bit to encourage you and your family make those small changes and help you on your way by bringing you a selection of healthy foods for five different food categories over the course of this week.

So let’s “Do something good for JanUary”, and incorporate some of these health drinks into our lifestyle:

Obesity in the UK

  • Obesity is a direct cause of sleep apnoea, depression, type 2 diabetes, stress, heart disease, arthritis, high blood pressure, infertility.
  • 60% of men, 50% of women and 25% of children could be obese by 2050.
  • 1 in 3 adults do 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a week.
  • 1 in 4 adults now considered obese… along with a fifth of children.
  • These rates have almost doubled in 20 years.

2. Jools Drinks

The concept of Jools was born in 2012, during a trip to South East Asia: combining different flavours in a unique way.

After 2 years of hard work, they came up with their unique Jools Pearl Technology called spherification that’s made from edible seaweed grown in the Pacific Ocean, and which allows the juices, vitamins and all things good to keep intact, until you pop them in your mouth.

4. Matcha Green Tea

According to the drink’s founder, James Shillcock, “Sugar in energy drinks is proven to negatively impact the brain; Vivid provides the alternative.”

Matcha is “pure, high-grade green tea leaves” that have been picked and ground into a fine powder.This powder is blended straight into the drinks to give the nutritional benefits in a highly concentrated form.

Green tea is the only dietary source of L-theanine. It is found in its highest doses in Matcha.
