3 Bitter Drinks That Older Adults Should Drink Regularly In Moderation To Stay Healthy

According to healthline reports that certain bitter drinks can be beneficial for the elderly because they contain organic compounds and vitamins that can aid the body in detoxifying harmful substances, strengthening the immune system, dissolving free radicals and excess cholesterol by sticking onto them and dissolving them, and thereby inhibiting the oxidation of cholesterol, which leads to the blocking of blood vessels and, in turn, high blood pressure when the arterioli contract. As advised by Healthline, here are three bitter beverages that older individuals should have on occasion or regularly to maintain good health.

Cocoa powder mixed with warm water in a glass cup is both a common and unfamiliar beverage, especially among adults. Since it contains antioxidant compounds—mainly organic components that, when swallowed, make their way to the digestive system and release blood vessels that have been obstructed or stopped up by high cholesterol—this beverage is very useful to the body.

In addition to its health benefits, adults can benefit from drinking red wine, another bitter beverage, because its chemical components help dilate and open up restricted blood vessels and prevent the oxidation of excess cholesterol by free radicals. This helps reduce cholesterol levels and protects against free radical damage that can inflame tissues and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

The oxidative damage caused by free radicals and other toxins in the body can mix with cholesterol in the body to generate harmful oxidized cholesterol molecules, so it's important for adults to drink bitter beverages like coffee on a regular basis.
