3 Drinks to Avoid When Flying

Off on your long-awaited holiday vacation, but dreading the flight?

Here are 3 drinks to avoid so you can arrive at your destination feeling healthy and energized:

1. Tomato juice

Flying conditions can aggravate existing heart problems and a serving of tomato juice is high in sodium, which has been shown to impair blood vessel function.

2. Carbonated beverages

Due to changes in pressure, bloating can worsen when flying so avoid carbonated beverages, like soda, to lessen intestinal discomfort.

3. Alcohol

Cabin air is dry & consuming alcohol can increase water losses so avoid adult beverages to reduce risk of dehydration. Remember, a big bottle of water is always a healthy choice!
