Detox with Dandelion and Chicory Roots


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

Spring officially arrived on the morning of Tuesday, March 20th marked by the Spring Equinox when light and darkness are equally balanced. Now that the daylight is getting longer everyday, it’s a traditional time for a spring detox program. Recovering from a tough flu season where many people, who are never sick, were felled for weeks, it may be just the thing to revive one’s vitality and rebuild the immune system.

There are lots of detox programs recommending the best way to detox and cleanse. Choosing between those that involve fasting versus those that have a regime for eating cleanly is a decision you need to make depending on what fits your body and your life’s rhythms the best.

Whichever style you choose, detox programs can present a big challenge for many people due to the requirement to refrain from drinking coffee and alcohol. Ok, some number of days without alcohol isn’t that big a deal for most people, but ask a coffee drinker to give up the morning cuppa and boom! Resistance sets in.

Dandelion root, roasted and ground to brew like coffee, and chicory root, the French coffee alternative, can help a coffee drinker get over that hurdle. Along with replacing the taste and body of a cup of coffee, dandelion and chicory roots have detox health benefits that add to a cleansing program. But you have to be careful to prepare ahead of time to make your detox program more effective and more pleasant. Here’s why eliminating caffeine during a detox program is such an important factor and how drinking an herbal coffee made from dandelion and chicory roots can help.

Written by: Ashley Vincenti

Ullanda is a longtime Teeccino Ambassador who recently shared Teeccino at her workplace with her female colleagues. Ullanda wrote – 

“I work in the engineering field which is male-dominated. I wanted to do something nice for the females at my firm. So I held an impromptu “pampering session” with Teeccino, and some girl talk. It was a nice way to digress from the work day, and bond together. They LOVVEEDDD Teeccino. A few of the ladies started to pull their phones out to order from the website immediately.”

That’s so terrific, Ullanda! We love this photo you sent, and we appreciate all the ways you share Teeccino. We’ll be Read More

Maca Chocolaté, Real Energy in a Cup


Written by: Caroline MacDougall

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!
