Takesha is a new Teeccino Ambassador who has been very creative sharing our product.In her latest report, about a #visionboard party where she paired Teeccino with SoDelicious coconut creamer…Takesha told us:
“The event was a vision board party. No one there knew about Teeccino and they were all pleasantly surprised about how great it tastes. Some people who attended were vegans and they really liked that Teeccino is non-acidic and caffeine free. I loved how the tea bags were attached to mini pamphlets for anyone who wanted additional information.”
That’s fantastic, Takesha! We love the way you have jumped right in and shared Teeccino with your co-workers and colleagues, to such great response! We’ll be happy to support your Read More
Confusion reigns across the internet and blogosphere about natural flavors. Really, it is quite amazing what some people will do to excite their followers by amplifying “fake news” and exploiting fear. We get phone calls every day from customers who are suddenly scared that they are ingesting something terrible if they eat or drink a product that contains natural flavors.
In 2013, I wrote what I think is a pretty comprehensive article about natural flavors on our Teeccino blog. It’s a deep read, but worth it if you really want to understand the truth about natural flavors.
Recently though, I realized I could give a couple more good examples of how natural flavors are derived and why they’re safe to consume. I was sipping on a Kombucha beverage that tasted like cherries even though there was no cherry juice or natural cherry flavor on the label. It just so happened that I know exactly how this Kombucha company was hiding its natural cherry flavor in its ingredient list. I thought, this has gone too far. Now natural food companies are too afraid to admit they’re using natural flavors to make their products delicious!
So if some blogger or “medical medium” has led you to believe that natural flavors are full of bad things, please give me a moment of your time to read some real facts about these natural flavor compounds and why we love them to enhance our food and beverages!
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
