The Most Sugary Beverages

Pina ColadaStudies have associated man’s increased consumption on sugar to rising cases of cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Also, higher levels of sugar in your body suppresses your immune system. No wonder that bottled orange juice does not seem to work in relieving your common cold.

This is why you need to be careful in what you drink, as we tend to get tempted into eating really sweet drinks like sodas, processed fruit juices, iced tea, and even energy drinks. However, those mentioned pale in comparison to the most sugary beverages available in the market.

Glaceau Vitamin Water – Never buy a drink right out of the grocery fridge without first reading the nutritional facts found on the label. More often than not, those displayed as "healthy" are not necessarily beneficial to your health at all. For instance, a 20-ounce bottle of Glaceau Vitamin Water contains 130 calories and 33 grams sugar. That is equivalent to a can of regular Coke.

Arizona Kiwi Strawberry Iced Tea – Most fruit-based beverages in can or bottles have more artificial ingredients and preservatives than the actual fruit juice. Arizona Kiwi Strawberry Iced Tea is no exemption, as the 23.5 can contains 360 calories, 84 grams sugar, and just 5 percent fruit juice.

Jamba Juice Peanut Butter Moo’d Power Smoothie – Ideally, peanut butter is an excellent source of protein but only when eaten alone. Mixing it in a smoothie, however, can give your of the unwanted calories instead. For instance, just 23.5 ounce of this peanut-butter-charged beverage contains 1,170 calories, 169 grams sugar, and 30 grams fat. Also, 67 percent of this smoothie contains calories from carbohydrates, which can be hard to shed off if you have less physical activities.

Pina Colada – Certain cocktails not only provide hangover the next day, but also with a lot of calories. Pina Colada, for example, has 625 calories and 75 grams sugar in each glass.

Baskin Robin’s Large Heath Bar Shake – This is reported as the overall "Unhealthiest Drink in America" and a rundown of its nutritional value is a give-away: 2,310 calories, 266 grams of sugar, and 108 grams of fat-64 of which is saturated. The caloric content of it is equivalent to that of 11 Heath bars eaten back to back.
