Detoxify and Get Focused with Matcha
You’ve probably seen this bright green drink at your favorite Starbucks or local coffee shop. Matcha is a powdered green tea that’s been popular for centuries in Japan both because of its delicious taste and incredible healing properties. Drinking antioxidant-rich matcha is proven to help fight cancer– this powerful ingredient packs in nearly 100 times more EGCg than any other tea! Matcha is also known to improve concentration and focus, reduce anxiety and even aid weight loss. Best of all, the natural caffeine from matcha tea increases energy without the jitters or crashes of regular coffee.
Boost Your Mood with Hibiscus Flower
Chances are you’ve had a cup of sweet, floral hibiscus tea. But a frothy hibiscus latte? You’re in for a treat. Bright red hibiscus flowers are used to make this unique, antioxidant-packed drink. Hibiscus features a unique ingredient: hibiscus protocatechuic acid, which fights against tumor development. Rich in vitamin C, hibiscus also works well as an anti-inflammatory. A warm drink is a great mood booster, and a hibiscus latte is no exception. This special superfood contains flavonoids, which reduce the effects of depression and anxiety and increase a general feeling of calm.
Find the Fountain of Youth with Turmeric
So it’s not really the fountain of youth, of course, but this beautiful golden spice has been used for thousands of years in India! It’s an aromatic and medicinal ingredient, and to this day it’s one of the best super foods to add to your morning latte.
Turmeric contains an active ingredient called curcumin, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory with powerful effects. Consuming turmeric regularly can help improve brain function, fight Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and heart disease and even boost your mood. Turmeric is also excellent for digestive health: if you’ve noticed your morning coffee is leaving your stomach upset, it might be time to make the switch!
