What to Drink When You’re Sick

Drinks with Electrolytes

When you’re sick, staying hydrated is vastly important. This is especially true when you’re running a fever or having trouble keeping your food down. Even though water is the most common way to stay hydrated, drinks rich in electrolytes are a better option. Coconut water is the best natural choice, but sports drinks like Gatorade will also help.

Orange Juice

Orange juice will give your body a boost of vitamin C that can reduce your down time. However, drinking too much can also make your stomach upset. You’ll want to dilute it to one part OJ and five parts water to avoid other negative symptoms.

Hot Tea and Honey

Tea is packed with antioxidants. Hot tea is also great for soothing a sore throat. Plus, a little caffeine boost will give you some much needed energy. Adding honey has also been proven to help with cough and sore throat symptoms as well.
