Your Best health beverage?

Carrot juice for me is the best health beverage because of its beta-carotene content that effectively protect women from cancer. Besides, it can also make one's skin look young and supple. But I have read that Acai berry is the best because it is very high in antioxidants. What do you think is the best?

I would vote for freshly squeezed lemon juice as the healthiest beverage. Lemon, despite its acidity, is actually a good therapy for those suffering acidity or ulcer. It's a therapy juice recommended by a doctor and I tried it and amazingly, it did stop my acid attacks right on the spot. Thanks for the response on my discussion :)

I myself prefer Pomegranete juice when it comes to choosing a juice with healthy benefits. Pomegranetes are great for your body and supply an immense amount of antioxidants that rid the body of free radicals! Also I love cranberry juice and plain old water. You can never get enough of it and most people actually don't consume nearly the amount that they should in a day! Water is a great drink, anytime, anywhere. It doesn't contain anything but is still one of the best things you can drink for your body, from looks to internal reasons water is the over-all best super drink! *Drink up fellow mylotters

I like to eat tomatoes or drink tomato juice. Because it contains antioxidants that are high and good for preventing cancer. Tomatoes contain large amounts of vitamin C, providing 40 percent of the daily value. They also contain 15 percent of vitamin A, 8 percent of potassium, and 7 percent of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of iron for women and 10 percent RDA for men. The red pigment contained in tomatoes is called lycopene. This compound appears to act as an Antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals that can damage cells in the body. Only recently, studies have revealed that lycopene may have twice the punch of another well-known Antioxidant betacarotene.
