Beat the Summer with 5 top traditional coolants!

 

It’s the peak of summers across India and temperatures are soaring. What effect does the rising temperature have on our bodies? Every organ in our body – heart, brain, liver, kidney is temperature sensitive and our body does a really good job of regulating the right temperature. But sometimes the heat gets a bit too much and conditions like heat stroke are real and can cause a lot of damage.

Rising temperatures are causing dehydration. Just water is not helping people. People are also opting for juices, sodas, sugar-sweetened drinks and other beverages to quench their thirst. Packaged fruit juices and carbonated drinks are harmful in summer, as they have high amounts of artificial sugars. They soon leave a person thirstier. Very cold water too does not help quench thirst. It makes one feel like having more and more water.

Here are the top 5 Traditional coolants for this summer
