Hot drinks that keep you healthy

(Consumer Reports) When you’re feeling tired, cold, or under the weather, there’s nothing better than climbing into bed with a mug of something hot. In addition to being comforting, hot drinks replace fluids lost from fever and help loosen mucus. But they also have properties that may actually protect your health all year long. Which one should you sip? Consider these…
Tea…
Herbal infusions…
Coffee…
Hot cocoa…
Hot toddy…
“Sip while hot,” say the package directions on at least 74 multisymptom cold and flu products. Those powders, which you dissolve in hot water and drink like tea, contain some combination of a pain reliever (acetaminophen), a decongestant, an antihistamine, and a cough suppressant. But our medical advisers don’t recommend multisymptom products. You might not need all those drugs, and some have side effects.
