5 Ayurvedic mocktails

Cool off and boost your immunity this season with ayurvedic mocktails. Says ayurvedic physician Dr Smita Naram, founder, Ayushakti Ayurved Centre, "What makes these mocktails ayurvedic is the combination of ingredients used. Ayurvedic mocktails are digested, absorbed and converted into energy very quickly, and are tasty as well as healthy."

These combos replenish nutrients that the body loses during the day and nourishes it with antioxidants. To illustrate their potency, Dr Naram cites an example of a patient from Australia who was diagnosed with pre-cancerous soft tissue nodules in her breast. "I put her on a fasting regimen along with high doses of juices - carrot, pomegranate, spinach and apple - strong in antioxidants. After only two months of her new regimen, her mammogram showed that all the soft tissue nodules had disappeared."
