Energy drinks are everywhere. People drink them day and night hoping to experience more energy, right? And they do get a burst…for a period of time… until they burn out that is.
Energy drinks are all based on caffeine. It might come from coffee, tea, yerba mate, guarana, kola nuts or be synthesized in a laboratory, but in the end, it is all the same stimulant: caffeine.
If you’ve been reading my newsletter for awhile, you’ll know that caffeine isn’t a source of real energy. It stimulates the adrenal glands to produce stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. Those stress hormones heighten your feeling of being energized via mental alertness and elevated blood sugar that prepares you to fight or flee from danger. But that’s not the same thing as energy that the mitochondria in your cells produce every moment of every day.
What happens if you’re not in an emergency mode and you habitually imbibe caffeine? Eventually, you’re going to rob your energy bank account by exhausting your adrenal glands and your entire endocrine system. Then you’ll feel tired no matter how many Monsters® or Red Bulls® you down.
But many people find they can’t seem to live without that caffeine boost especially in the morning. Without it, they feel sluggish, mentally foggy and even depressed. Their adrenal glands aren’t producing the optimal boost of cortisol that should wake them up feeling refreshed.
Instead of depending on caffeine though, there is another way to experience being energized that doesn’t deplete you. If you want to boost your energy with an herb that nourishes your body while helping to reduce stress, then you’ll understand why I decided to add Peruvian maca to Teeccino Chocolaté to bring you real energy in a cup!
Lucila is a new Teeccino Ambassador right here in Southern California where our company is based. She recently told us about her MOPS. org event with 100 Moms meeting up! She wrote:
“These are pics from my Santa Ynez Valley MOPS meeting. We meet twice a month and there are about 100 moms attending each time. There were quite a few that were excited about trying the tea and some others were already buying the tea at New Frontiers in Solvang. One mom even said she orders monthly from the website. Thank you for letting me share samples!”
This is fantastic, Lucila! We really appreciate the photos you sent! We look forward to hearing about future events with you and your great group – we’ll be happy to support. We’ve had another Ambassador, Trista – share Teeccino with her MOPS Moms group too, and it’s such a great org… Read More
Lisa of Kitchen Counter Intelligence is an integrative health coach and a Teeccino Ambassador who has done a number of fun Ambassador events, like a recent one at the police officers’ banquet with her son. She wrote in after her most recent event – her parents’ 50th wedding anniversary (!) and she told us the fun story –
Lisa’s Mom looking radiant and enjoying her party – with Teeccino!
“This was an event I wasn’t planning on, but Mom called me last minute and asked me if I could bring Teeccino to her 50th wedding anniversary reception. I was so happy she asked and gathered as many bags as I could to bring with me! Boy, she was right, there were 45 guests who wanted something without caffeine along with their cake. It was late in the evening and nobody wanted coffee, so the Teeccino was a perfect option! It was exciting to explain the difference between decaf and no caf and to let them know of all the different flavor options.
It was a very on-the-fly request, but as you can see from my Mom’s face, she was thrilled Teeccino was in the house!”
That’s so wonderful to hear, Lisa! Your Mom looks positively gorgeous and we love how much she Read More
Whether you’re hosting a large or small gathering this holiday season, you’ll want a quick way to serve a festive cup of Teeccino to accompany your desserts. After all that work of getting the dinner on the table, let’s keep it simple yet delicious! Here are 3 ways I recommend to make a holiday cup of Teeccino depending on how many guests you’ll be serving:
Frequently we’re asked, “What’s the pH of Teeccino?” People are confused because we know that Teeccino is alkaline for the body, but if brewed Teeccino is tested with a simple pH strip, you get varying results.
The difference starts with the pH of the water used to brew. Alkaline waters are very popular these days, but some are made artificially alkaline and others are naturally alkaline. What’s the difference? The same thing that makes Teeccino alkaline regardless of the water’s pH: the presence of alkaline minerals provided by nature. Read More
We’ve done it again! Another successful Bhakti Festival under our belt. With staggering amounts of workshops and lectures, yoga classes and keratin music we were there to assist a community of mindful people from all over the world. Being that this festival was a 100% meat, drug and alcohol-free, we were there every step of the way to hydrate and refuel the attendees, keeping them feeling their best as they endure the long hours of practice and devotion.
As always we had hot airpots of Teeccino, featuring our new Dandelion Super Herb Teas that we recently launched this year. The Dandelion Turmeric was a hit and aided to a lot of score muscles from extensive stretching and yoga and classes. We also brought 2 kegerators this year, serving our delicious, velvety smooth Tea Nitro, that has cascading vitality in every pour. One of the crowds favorite was our fruity Hibiscus Blackberry, known to lower your blood pressure and is high in vitamin C, this drink was very popular in the hot 100 degree temperature of the day.
We also had TeeChia, our sustaining superseed cereal. We donated product for their cafeteria as well as sampled and sold bowls of it out of our booth all day long. With 6 superseeds, dried fruit and gluten free rolled oats, everyone appreciated the lack of sugar and high energy they received from it.
We saw a lot of familiar faces plus we got to meet and educate many new ones. Thank you all again for your support and devotion not only to your practice, but to Teeccino! Can’t wait to see you next year, same place, same time.
