Who doesn't love a nice hot cup of coffee on a cool morning? Several research studies even suggest drinking coffee on a regular basis may have some health benefits. Unfortunately for some, however, drinking coffee can cause some undesired side effects. Most people are familiar with symptoms such as insomnia and teeth staining, but there are other more serious side effects such as:
Raised blood pressure
Aggravation of digestive issues, i.e., heartburn, IBS, reflux & GERD
Poor mineral absorption
Worsening of adrenal fatigue
So what's a coffee lover to do? Drink Teechino! An herbal Coffee (no actual coffee beans are used) that tastes remarkably like coffee, Teechino contains no caffeine and will cause none of the undesired side effects mentioned above. In fact, it's even good for you! Here are just a few of the benefits of drinking this coffee alternative:
Helps balance blood sugar levels
Contains prebiotics, which feed the good "bugs" in your gut
Safe for pregnant and nursing mothers
Energy boost, due to the potassium.
How do you drink it? It can be brewed in your coffee pot just like coffee, or brewed like a tea. If you are using it to wean yourself off coffee, try mixing Teechino and your regular coffee - 3/4 coffee to 1/4 Teechino. Over time, gradually increase the amount of teechino and decrease the amount of coffee.
