Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world and it is also a very controversial topic.
LET’S PLAY A GAME… Consider the role that caffeine plays in your life. One cup of coffee or tea can be an enjoyable ritual, but if you find that you are constantly reaching for caffeine sources to get through the day, you may need to make adjustments to your diet and lifestyle.
Without a doubt, the caffeine found in coffee is a stimulant, in fact it is considered the most popular and consumed “drug” in the world.
We are constantly hearing that, in general, a small amount of caffeine (1 cup) can help focus. athletic performance and alertness, but when too much is consumed (3 cups or more), it may also increase your anxiety levels and disturb your sleep.
So, what are the consequences that COFFEE can give to your body?
Deplete your adrenal glands, due to the excessive production of Adrenaline.
Makes it difficult for the Liver to complete its normal detoxification process.
Excessive production of mucus, due to the increase of the acidic internal load of the body.
Deplete the mineral reserves of your body (calcium, magnesium and potassium), as a defense mechanism to balance your internal PH.
Now, how can you substitute COFFEE?
If it is because you love the warmth of it first thing in the morning or during the day, then I'd totally recommend you to try a Cereal or a Herbal Coffee, there are several in the market and they are delicious. There's even one that has hazelnuts on it, and it is my husband's favorite!
Instead if you look for Coffee because you need that boost of adrenaline, then your best choice is a sweet drink made of beets and superfoods, have you tried it?
It is the first choice of my clients when they need energy before a workout... or after handling the kids and house shores!
Send me a message and I'd be happy to assist you in making the best choices for your health.
Stay healthy and happy with Superfoods!
