A diet rich in fiber is very important for both weight loss and a healthy lifestyle, since in addition to balancing the intestinal flora, it facilitates digestion and slows down the absorption of nutrients, thus prolonging the feeling of satiety. These valuable fibers can easily be taken even in the form of a drink.
The list below contains drinks that everyone can easily prepare at home, can be included in the daily diet before any meal of the day, and are also super healthy.
Red cabbage smoothie
Red cabbage contains more than four times as many antioxidants as other types of cabbage, supports stomach health due to its anti-inflammatory effect, and the fibers in it help digestion and maintain a sense of fullness for a long time.
Thanks to its vitamin B, calcium and vitamin C content, red cabbage speeds up the metabolism, which has been proven to speed up fat oxidation during exercise, and the sulforaphane content of red cabbage promotes detoxification processes. In a matter of seconds, you can make a tasty smoothie, which, in addition to red cabbage, consists of apples, tomatoes, ginger and lemon.
Pears are a real source of anthocyanins, which reduce harmful blood fat levels. They are rich in both soluble and insoluble fibers: by eating just one pear you can cover 22% of the daily fiber requirement.
Pears are also an excellent source of copper and potassium, which are involved in important metabolic processes, and nourish the nervous system and the muscles. For extra nutrients, apples, almond milk, lemon and chia seeds can also be added to the smoothie made from pears.
Radish is considered a natural diuretic, its high vitamin C content boosts fat oxidation during exercise, the raffanol it contains has a liver protective effect, and its mustard oil glycoside content stimulates the breakdown of fats.

Garlic, also known as a natural antibiotic, can be added to ginger-lemon drink, along with apple cider vinegar and honey to taste. This homemade soft drink is full of fiber that helps digestion and vitamin C, which supports metabolism and accelerates fat oxidation.
