The Doctors weigh in on the trend of adding sparkling water to cold brew coffee. They also discuss Jarrah honey, which claims to have one of the highest levels of antioxidants.
Sparkling cold brew: The Doctors note that many of these types of coffees, which are available in pre-made in cans and bottles, contain high levels of sugar. They feel like it is more like coffee and soda. Both ER physician Dr. Travis Stork and OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry are not fans, and plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says he thinks it is similar to ginger beer and feels it is only "okay." They deem coffee drink a BUST.
Jarrah honey: The Doctors discuss the often pricey type of honey from Austrailia that claims to have one of the highest antioxidant contents and the ability to fight infection. They note that studies have shown when applied topically that it can help support skin cell turnover. They say there is some BUZZ to this, but with the price being approximately $30 to 45 dollars, they feel it is also a BUST.
They note that theoretically, you could get similar benefits from a cheaper type of honey.
