Replace your toxic coffee with dandelion root coffee

Ever thought you would have to give up your morning coffee? How can you talk down on people suffering from addiction when you are battling your very own? This is the question I had to ask myself. What makes one addiction any better than the other?
They all have side effects that target healthy cells causing damage that can not be reversed! People who drink coffee normally have sleep issues. This is the only time the body can repair itself from damage caused that day!
Let’s discuss the cause & effect of drinking too much coffee!
  • Consuming too much caffeine can lead to jitteriness, anxiety, heart palpitations, and even exacerbated panic attacks!
  • Coffee’s laxative effect has been attributed to the release of gastrin, a hormone the stomach produces that speeds up activity in the colon. What’s more, decaffeinated coffee has been shown to produce a similar response
  • Studies have found that higher caffeine intake appears to increase the amount of time it takes to fall asleep. It may also decrease total sleeping time, especially in the elderly
  • Rhabdomyolysis is a very serious condition in which damaged muscle fibers enter the bloodstream, leading to kidney failure and other problems.
  • A detailed review suggests that although caffeine triggers certain brain chemicals similar to the way cocaine and amphetamines do, it does not cause classic addiction the way these drugs do. However, it may lead to psychological or physical dependency, especially at high dosages.
  • Blood pressure increases, which is a risk factor for heart attack and stroke because they may damage arteries over time, restricting the flow of blood to your heart and brain.
  • Coffee, as well as other caffeinated beverages, is known to boost energy levels. However, they can also have the opposite effect by leading to excessive fatigue once the caffeine is out of the system.
  • Causes overactive bladder due to the compound’s stimulatory effects on the urinary system!

As I sit here doing my morning to-do list I’m sipping on my coffee but not your normal Starbucks or Folders. I now have a degree in nutrition & with that comes replacing unhealthy habits with new healthy ones!!
 
I recently started making dandelion coffee. It’s been about 2 months or so give or take I’ve been replacing one bad drink I loved with a nutrient-rich alternative every week.
 
Dandelion Root
Dandelion contains high amounts of potassium, a mineral, and electrolyte needed to stimulate the heartbeat. Potassium assists the kidneys to filter toxins more effectively and improve blood flow.
 
The reason I truly love it though is it contains a beneficial amount of polysaccharides which naturally reduce stress on the liver and support its ability to produce bile! I had to take a self-love journey in order to train my brain to achieve the goals I put in place for myself!!
