Polyphenols, The Mediterranean Diet & Longevity


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

The debate about what you should eat in order to live the longest, healthiest life possible has swung back and forth for years between two poles: high protein, low carbohydrate diets versus low fat, primarily plant-based diets. Both claim to help you maintain optimal weight and healthy hearts for longevity.

In the center is the Mediterranean diet based on eating fruits, vegetables and grains along with fish and white meat. Additionally, it includes liberal amounts of olive oil and nuts to provide “good” fats. The Mediterranean diet also allows wine and thus many find it easier to follow! Read More

Trista is a new Teeccino Ambassador and blogger for A Purpose Driven Wife who has shared Teeccino at a number of events this year. Most recently she shared Teeccino at an event with about 60 attendees, and told us all about it:

“I was able to share Teeccino at a MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) international meeting and EVERYONE was thrilled to try out something that was new and healthy. There are moms in this group with children of all ages, even pregnant moms. I shared it with one pregnant more in particular, she tried the Hazelnut and fell in LOVE with the taste, the benefits it offers and she loved the fact that she can go to bed at night and drink it and not feel awake all night. EVERYONE loved the flavors and enjoyed Teeccino, They thanked me for even sharing it with them. It was a hit at the MOPS group.”

Chef Angel’s Clean Eating Event with Teeccino!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

Angel is a 3rd generation gourmet chef and Teeccino Ambassador who has done  number of events and cooking classes with Teeccino! She wrote us recently to let us know what she’s been up to lately…

“The host of the first Spring Clean Eating (pictured) became a Teeccino lover instantly. She was already asking me to order her two big bags of Teeccino! I helped her find some at her local Whole foods Market so she could pick her flavor choices and use her coupon. We are planning another healthy cooking event but hoping to target Latinos using traditional Lent recipes revamped. Many people give up coffee for Lent, so I’m going to be making lots of fresh cups of Teeccino to shock their Caffeine-withdrawled taste buds. I’ll keep you posted!” Read More

Ellen’s Discussion Group – with Dandelion Teeccino!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

Ellen, a holistic health coach, has been a Teeccino Ambassador since 2015, sharing Teeccino with her colleagues, clients. friends and on health retreats. She told us about her most recent event –

“Last month, a group I am part of that meets monthly for book discussions, plays and other activities, met for our annual planning meeting for the year. I took the Teeccino thermos of hot water and lots of different tea bags. As usual, they were a huge hit. We had a pot luck brunch and coffee was brewed but most tried the Teeccino (even if it was after their morning first cup of coffee). I love sharing the Dandelion for the gluten sensitive. There are 4 who have severe gluten sensitivity one with diagnosed celiac disease so it is nice to let them know even though all are probably fine that the Dandelion is definitely gluten free and the safest for those with celiac. I made sure they took the coupons and shared where they could buy Teeccino locally.” Read More

Feeding Your Probiotics For A Flourishing Microbiome


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

I promised to continue my October Newsletter article on the microbiome , your community of beneficial gut flora also called microbiota or probiotics,  and tell you more about the prebiotics that feed it. It’s been a hectic winter but I’m getting back to this subject because it’s the most important thing you can do to create optimal health. Feed the beneficial probiotics in your gut and your health will thrive!

New studies are being published daily revealing how the microbiome controls everything from our mood to our immune system. Science is revealing what foods increase various strains of beneficial microbes and how the metabolites that they produce enhances our health.

Here’s the white elephant in the room that no one in the natural foods industry wants to talk about: taking probiotic supplements simply can’t replenish the microbiome community in your gut. What? Are probiotic supplements a waste of money? Let’s just say this: there is a much more effective way to increase the beneficial intestinal flora that your good health depends upon. That’s why it is so important to know what foods and prebiotic concentrates will increase your microbiome diversity for optimal health.
