I've just taken up the Paleo Diet and wanted to know what I could drink to have the best possible health. Right now I've just been drinking water for almost a month. I'm not looking for safe drinks but ones that help or increase my health, strength, power, muscle mass, testosterone, etc. It doesn't have to taste good. All that matters to me is to get my health at an incredible level from eating and drinking things that are only good for my body. So which one's would you recommend?

Water - stick with it.
You might want to give white tea a try. I like it better than green tea. White tea has a sweeter taste and does not taste as "grassy" as green tea.
no soy milk, thats a horrible suggestion
And if you want something that will increase the health of your gut, give kombucha a try. Ultimately, the foods you eat will fuel your "strength, power, muscle mass, testosterone." You don't want to drink your calories or your nutrients too often.
If you get bored of water, carbonated water with some orange squeezed in tastes delicious. If you are simply looking for health though, water is definitely the way to go.
Bone broth is a good one! Tons of nutrients in that.
I love ginger tea as well (simmered grated ginger root) sometimes with a little lemon. That's a really nice warming liquid.
Kefir (especially if you make it yourself) has a lot of good bacteria that help gut health, if you tolerate it.
Green tea and black coffee are good occasionally, for their antioxidant content.
Other than that, plain water is the best and most effective for thirst!
Water, Bone broth! and maybe bulletproof coffee for that extra kick.
what about almond milk (unsweetened)? not in large quantities, but it has good vitamins and calcium.
Black coffee. Has tons of health benefits.
spring water. coconut water. coconut milk. raw goat milk. raw cow milk.
those are my go to drinks.
camellia sinensis in any of its many prepared varieties.
Chia seeds disolved in water for 15 minutes, add lime juice and a little honey as per Tarahumara indians :) Yum and also energy boost. Weird texture though.
