Coffee Habits With The Jar Healthy Vending
Updated: Jan 20
Attention coffee worshippers, the following content may be dangerous for your mental health.
Magic of caffeine does brings some light to the gloomy unbearable mornings, no argument here. But there are some things which do make us question whether coffee still stands in the healthy aisle.
Let us just quickly say that we are here not to brag about how bad of a drink is coffee but rather offer some healthier options. The Jar Healthy Vending is on a mission to share the latest healthy trends which improve wellbeing and quality of health. So what if, changing your morning coffee habit to an alternative will be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made? Just saying but until recently we have been drinking milk just to experience the discomfort right after, not knowing that there is such thing as lactose intolerance and switching to plant based milk products will brighten up our gut health substantially.
So, what is wrong with coffee? It is not entirely bad for you, some research suggests that it lowers the risk of stroke, a few diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and positively affects longevity. However, there is always a “but”. No one knows if it’s the coffee itself which brings the benefits or for example the more active lifestyle of coffee drinkers.
What it surely does bring though is high acidity, which irritates and generally poorly affects our gut health and skin condition. Note: switching to decaf is not any better solution. Moreover, it’s awakening effect is due to elevated blood pressure levels which is not good if you are having troubles with such. However, this may be useful when you are having slight headaches and fatigue, coffee will substitute Panadol and bring you back to life.
Bottom line, if you are:
Have high blood pressure
Prone to heartburn and acid reflux
Try our healthier awakening options:
In simple words it’s green tea. Then why get the fancy and usually more expensive matcha instead of a traditional and well-known drink? Because unlike the brewed tea, matcha is a whole tea leaf put through the grinder. So it’s is the whole leaf you are consuming and therefore getting triple the amount of not only caffeine but antioxidants too, which are the opposite to an acidic nature of coffee.
This has turmeric and therefore gets our seal of approval instantly. It doesn’t wake you up though, but it surely warms you up during cold mornings and gives that comforting feeling. Besides, it improves brain function, mood and immune system. How’s that for an alternative morning drink to help you tune in to a productive mood?
Oh la la, the latest trending. Kombucha is a fermented tea which gives you a mild caffeine boost and even energy without jitters. This drink also provides a whole load of probiotics and there is no need to remind us how good they are for our gut-health.
If you are more into cold drinks, green smoothies, lemon water and wheatgrass juice are good at waking up your senses. They will not bring that comforting feeling, but they will bring the double of nutrients and health benefits right at the begging of your day.
