Water is important for the human body. Water is LIFE.  Around 60% of our body is water. It is essential for health and helps in several bodily functions mainly maintaining the temperature of our body, cellular function, and waste removal. Hence getting enough fluids throughout the day is important. 

It is also true that one cannot drink plain water throughout. Hence mankind has invented several hydrating options like - sugary drinks, carbonated drinks, fruit juices (fresh or canned), shakes, etc. But the important question is are these drinks good for diabetics and if not then 'What are good best drinks for diabetics?

To know about it all, we will first see what do the available drinks give us. 

The available drinks in the market include cola, soda, pop, fruit punch, lemonade, energy, and sports drinks, also sweetened powdered drinks. 

These drinks are commonly known as “soft” drinks and are sugar-sweetened beverages. These sugary drinks provide a lot of many calories and virtually no nutrients. So are definitely not a good option if you have diabetes.

Plus, the research reveals that if you drink just one of these sugary drinks each day without cutting back on calories in any other way, you could gain up to 5 pounds in a year. And excess weight may risk the chances of having type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic diseases.

Now the diabetics would think, why not go for sugar-free drinks.

Coke Zero means it does not contain direct sugar but is sweetened with artificial sweeteners. Again, artificial sweeteners are not good for health. So, this option is ruled out.
