For a very long time, health care experts have suggested you replace your morning cup of coffee with other drinks that can give you the energy boost you crave. While we know it’s tough to do that, if you have some equally delicious, powerful, and body-benefitting options, it may be a bit easier to NOT reach for your next cup of Joe.

The benefits of each of these three ingredients have been talked about in ancient medical texts and are backed by science. This delicious and zesty combination not only perks you up but also does a lot of good for your health:

• Reduces inflammation
• Clears up your skin and detoxifies
• Helps build immunity (so important these days to ward off colds + keep allergies at bay!)

Matcha contains nutrients from the entire tea leaf, which results in a greater amount of caffeine and antioxidants than typically found in green tea. And there are, of course, plenty of benefits:

• Protects the liver
• Promotes heart health
• Aids in weight lossp

Turmeric contains curcumin, which is an “it” ingredient filled with tremendous health benefits. It’s best to consume it with a meal that’s high in fat. In this case, a teaspoon of coconut oil can help you reap all the rewards:

• Aids as an anti-inflammatory
• Increases brain function

OWYN, which stands for “Only What You Need,” offers multiple plant-based beverage options that pack a punch. One of my faves is its Cold Brew Coffee Non-Dairy Protein Shake. Not only does this taste just like a cold brew with the same amount of caffeine, it’s also super low in sugar (only 5g), provides you with 20g of plant protein with all allergen-friendly ingredients (non-GMO, vegan, gluten- and dairy-free), plus it boasts superfood greens and vegan Omega-3s. It’s perfect for an onthe-go breakfast!


Studies have found that some teas may help fight cancer, heart disease, and diabetes; encourage weight loss; lower cholesterol;
and bring about mental alertness. The Tea Disc, a new type of tea experience from iLOLA, is designed to bring the luxury
and eco-consciousness of loose leaf tea to the convenience of your lifestyle.
It’s the first ever, compact Tea Disc made of artisanal loose leaf tea, pre-portioned and bound with a probiotic cellulose binding
for the perfect steep, without the tea bag. The binding contains your daily dose of probiotics that dissolves as the tea leaves
and botanicals unfurl in hot water, providing more nourishment for the body, as well as the soil when composted after use.

• Prevents different types of cancers and clogging of the arteries
• Helps burn fat
• Counteracts stress on the brain, reducing risks of neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
• Reduces risk of stroke
• Improves cholesterol levels
