Do you really know what you are drinking? Are you sure?

We consume many drinks every day and they all have an impact of some kind on our body. Maybe we're just thirsty, maybe we need something to wake us up, maybe we want something to relax us at the end of the day. But have you ever stopped to wonder what exactly is in your chai latte or just what those added electrolytes in your bottled water are supposed to do?

From coffee and kombucha to cola and champagne, Drinkology distils the scientific evidence on the world's most popular drinks to see if we can get to the bottom of questions, such as:

  • Is a regular glass of wine good for our health or not?
  • Should we worry about energy drinks?
  • Is fluoride in tap water harmful?
  • Are fermented drinks and probiotics the answer to a healthy gut?

Whether you want to discover the true benefits of wellness drinks, find out if sulphites in wine really cause headaches or are just sick of the pseudoscience behind the marketing of what we consume, this book is for you. It may just change the way you drink.
