While many love the benefits of coffee, it may not be the healthiest of beverages. Here are some healthy alternatives to coffee to get you through the day!
If you’re like most people, then you probably drink at least one cup of coffee a day, right?
The popularity of this drink is largely due to its stimulating power, which acts directly on our nervous system, making us feel more awake and alert.
The problem is that coffee’s benefits also come with some disadvantages. As the caffeine, the substance responsible for the effects of coffee, wears off, it comes accompanied with some side effects.
The caffeine crash begins 1 hour after we drink a cup of coffee, although it may take a few more hours to appear.
The most common effect is fatigue or moodiness, because the adrenaline and dopamine levels (the ones responsible for giving us energy and improving our mood) begin to drop.
Apart from these symptoms, the caffeine may stay in your body for several hours, and even disturb your sleep, depending on the time when it was consumed.
Coffee consumption may also impact cortisol levels and impair the absorption of certain minerals, such as iron.
Due to this, today we’re going to show you some alternatives to coffee that can give you energy without so many of the undesirable side effects!
