Kicking the coffee habit is not easy. Most of us rely on coffee to enhance our job performance, keep up with the kids or even to aid digestion after a big meal. If you are thinking of giving up coffee for good I don't recommend going cold turkey. As you will more than likely end up with the Mother of Migraines. You can start to gradually decrease your coffee intake over time. Another tip is to start with drinking organic or very high quality coffee. I like Bean and Body's products as they say their products "turn a daily ritual into a health habit". This local company provides a wonderful alternative to Red Bull.
There's a lot of research about coffee actually being good for you. Bean and Body is obviously pro-coffee. The latest published studies that have found evidence that coffee not only lifts your mood, it can also reduce the risk of Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. It is believed that coffee contains more antioxidants than so-called healthy foods like grape juice, blueberries, raspberries and oranges.
Bean and Body products include Anti-Ox, Energy, MarTEAni, and Rescue. Anti-ox is packed with health-promoting flavors like promegranate, acai berries and blueberries. Energy is crafted with guarana and yerba mate for the perfect pick me (or you) up. marTEAni is coffee blended with whole-leaf green tea, just in case you couldn't decide which one you like more. Rescue is formulated with ashwanganda which is an herb that is great for the adrenals.
Bean and Body is also an environmentally and socially conscious business. Each purchase supports The Bean and Body Protected Grounds Initiative, which helps to buy, protect and preserve threatened areas of the world's rainforests. They have also partnered with Crop to Cup and World Land Trust Us.To read more click here. Bean and Body products can be found at Whole Foods, Shift on Sheffield and Gene's Sausage Shop.
