Detox Programs, Caffeine and Coffee


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

Alkalline-vege-body-1284780XSmallMany people, who are about to embark on a detox program, find the hardest part is giving up caffeine during their cleanse. Understanding the reasons why caffeine interferes with detoxing can help motivate people to face their caffeine habit and take a break from it for the duration of the cleanse.

Preparing for detoxing off of caffeine is an important first step to embark on two weeks before the start of the cleansing program so painful caffeine withdrawal symptoms don’t spoil the detox experience. Teeccino’s gradual weaning program helps people avoid caffeine withdrawal and provides a delicious replacement for coffee drinking during the detox program.

Here are the three top reasons why quitting coffee and being caffeine free is such an important part of any detox program: Read More

Teeccino Ambassador Christa of AMMA Does It Again!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

You might remember that every year, we support the AMMA organization’s summer tour from Christa’s post on our blog last year. When we caught up with Teeccino Ambassador Christa recently, she told us about an event last fall for Amma’s birthday and this summer’s U.S. tour as well:

“Last September there was a 60th Birthday celebration for Amma at her ashram in India. There were 500,000 people there from all over the world to celebrate. After the US tour this summer there was some left over product from Teeccino that you had donated and they brought it to India for the Espresso bar at the ashram. The people LOVED it!! I think it is great that people from all over the world are being exposed to a great coffee alternative.”

As for this year’s U.S. AMMA tour, Christa send us a wonderful photo and kind words:

TeeccinoAmmaChrista1“I wanted to send you a photo of Teeccino in L.A.! In this picture I am with Stephanie that heads up the snack shop for the AMMA Tour. Everyone is loving the Teeccino this year.”

Thank you so much, Christa! We always appreciate knowing how Teeccino is received and we LOVE the photo you sent! It’s a great thing when being a Teeccino Ambassador and philanthropy go together hand-in-hand. Best wishes for next summer’s AMMA tour – we’ll be happy to support.

Holly Helps Out at Three Teeccino Ambassador Events!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

teeccinoambassadoreventWe are continually amazed at the array of important organizations our Ambassadors are involved in. Holly became a Teeccino Ambassador and shared her first set of samples at three different events! She wrote in her event request:

“At our church we have many families that are into healthy lifestyles and would love Teeccino.  We have a potluck coming up and a BBQ on June 18. I also am hosting an open house for WAR (Women At Risk) in mid-June.”

We made sure Holly got enough for her events and we loved what she reported afterwards:

“I was able to share a couple of the Tee-bag samples with a few ladies who I know are into healthy eating that came yesterday to the Women at Risk open house, and won’t be able to make the other event.  One of them just found out she had to give up caffeine and she was thrilled to learn about Teeccino.”

“Several people at our Potluck were thrilled to see Teeccino there (including the lady that introduced me to Teeccino.) She didn’t know there were FLAVORS. The place she gets it only has a couple varieties and she was excited to know there is Vanilla Nut and Hazelnut. It was so much fun introducing people to a new product!”

Holly wrapped up her report by saying:

“Thank you for letting me be a blessing to others and I still have two more events to do.”

Thank YOU for all you are doing, Holly! We so appreciate your good deeds in your community and that you have made them an opportunity to share Teeccino with others as well! We will be so glad to support your future Ambassador events, so just let us know!

Chickie Clues In Her Complex To Teeccino!


Written by: Ashley Vincenti

teeccinohealthfactsChickie is a Teeccino Ambassador in Arizona who has done a number of events so far. You might remember when we first wrote about Chickie’s events, “Chickie Shares Teeccino in Chandler!” back in May.  She told us in her recent report:

“I spoke to individuals one-on-one! I’m doing this at my apartment complex and I’m meeting lots of my friendly neighbors. They all seem very happy and grateful for the Teeccino. I’m still not completely done yet because I want to make sure most of my neighbors receive it. Pretty soon they may call me the ‘Teeccino lady’!”

“A lot of people were interested of course! One woman in particular was very excited because she has seen Teeccino In Sprouts and wanted to buy if for her ill mother-in-law ( but didn’t want to buy it in case she didn’t like it). Also, thank you so much – the display item is perfect!”

Thank YOU, Chickie! We are so grateful for all the ways you have found to share Teeccino in your community. We look forward to supporting your upcoming events!

Andrea is a new Teeccino Ambassador based in Canada, and recently shared Teeccino samples at “StrongStart BC” – an elementary school program for young children (aged birth to five). The program teaches early learning activities – including stories, music and art – at no cost to families, and helps prepare children for success in Kindergarten. With about 15 moms in attendance, Andrea enjoyed introducing Teeccino to them, and told us in her report:

“I am a mom of 4 year old twin girls and I have been visiting Strong Start for few years now. There are always new faces when I arrive with my girls but also some regulars. It’s great to connect with other moms. I have been telling few moms about Teeccino for months. When the teacher announced that we are having a potluck at the strong start I jumped in and told everyone that I will be bringing the ‘famous no caffeine coffee’.  So the next day, I packed my coffee maker and a package of Vanilla Nut Teeccino, made some of my famous banana bread and headed to Strong Start. People could not believe that I actually brought my coffee maker with me!”

“The response was amazing. I brewed first 10 cups and it was gone in no time. There were 3 pregnant ladies there and they were thanking me for introducing them to Teeccino. This was such a treat for them as they don’t drink regular coffee. Everyone was talking about the amazing smell and flavor. I ended up brewing another 10 cups.Read More

“Caffeinated” Challenges the Caffeine Industry


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

caffeinatedA new book, Caffeinated, by Murray Carpenter, a journalist with a masters degree in environmental studies, focuses on the caffeine industry and how it has held the US government in check since 1909, fighting any attempt by the FDA to regulate caffeine in beverages. The story of how Coca Cola fought off early attempts to regulate how much caffeine could be put into beverages, how they then claimed it was only a flavoring ingredient, and now how they dumped that argument to jump on the “energy” drink bandwagon is fascinating and disturbing.
