Quit Coffee Today With These Alternative Drinks

Coffee is the first daily drink of choice for over 150 million Americans. Americans and humans world wide consume coffee for its taste and the effects from its caffeine content. Though coffee is not an unhealthy choice, it is acidic and can create dependency for consumers fairly easily. The caffeine found in coffee also has an impact on the central nervous system as it is a stimulant. Drinking too much coffee may come with risks, and can make it difficult to efficiently regulate our nervous system. Aside from the negative effects of coffee withdrawal, consuming too much can impact memory, learning and body temperature regulation as well. In this article we will look for coffee alternatives that we can incorporate into our morning regimen.


Matcha Tea


First on the list of coffee alternatives is Matcha tea. Unlike typical green tea, Matcha is brewed using the entirety of the tea leaf. This provides consumers with a much more robust antioxidant profile, which can aid in weight management. Matcha tea's flavor is often described as earthy and can be purchased regularly at commercial coffee shops like Starbucks & Coffee Bean around the nation. Try out a Matcha tea latte sometime!


Golden Milk


Next on the list is Golden Milk. Golden Milk is gaining popularity around the United States and is often found in more boutique coffee shops. Though Golden Milk does not contain caffeine one would find in coffee or green tea it does include a herbal blend that will awaken your senses. Often consumed warm Golden Milk contains cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, and black pepper. Many consumers like to add honey or cardamom. Golden Milk just isn't a tasty choice, it is one of the more nutrient dense drinks on the market.


Yerba Mate


Yerba Mate can be found in almost any convenience store. The caffeine content is around 78mg which is comparable to a cup of coffee. Many describe the taste as smoky or bitter but this tea is packed full of minerals and vitamins like calcium, iron, vitamin C and vitamin E! Consumers can steep Yerba mate bags at home easily. Consumers prefer drinking Yerba Mate cold but this drink can be consumed warm/hot. It should be noted that Yerba mate if drunk in excess can also have an unwanted impact on the nervous system.


Kombucha


The last drink on our list is Kombucha. Kombucha is typically created using fermented black tea, bacteria, yeast and sugar. Large brands like GT’s Kombucha are known for their wide selection of Kombucha beverages ranging in flavors like guava, mango, watermelon and more. The probiotics found in Kombucha can work wonders for gut health and there are studies that show Kombucha can aid with immunity.
