8 Great Herbal Alternatives to Your Morning Coffee

When you’re thinking about the best thing to have in the morning as soon as you get out of bed, coffee probably comes to your mind.

It gives you that caffeine buzz that you need to get through the day and automatically wakes you up from your slumber. However, even though there are tons of positive benefits that come with drinking coffee, there are also some negative side-effects. If you are someone who is overly anxious and jittery already, then coffee might not be the best choice for you. The good news for you is that there are plenty of healthy herbal alternatives that you can drink in the morning that will wake you up and give you that boost that normally only coffee gives you. Just keep reading down below to learn more about the top eight herbal alternatives you can drink in the morning to your morning coffee.

1. Teecino

This is one of the best items on this list for those of you who are just dropping coffee from your diet and need to slow your drop from the addiction. Many people say that this substance tastes just like coffee, but without those addictive properties. However, that does not mean that it doesn’t come with the great benefits that come with coffee. With teecino, you are going to get a great prebiotic called inulin. It’s great for helping your gut health and improving your digestive system. On the other hand, when you drink coffee, you are not going to see an improvement to your digestive system. In fact, coffee can have a negative effect on your digestive system and how your stomach feels in the morning.

2. Chamomile

Of course, you are not going to be drinking chamomile when you want to get ready for the day ahead. Chamomile tea is the perfect tea for when you want to wind down after a hard day at work or just relax on the weekend. However, this a great alternative for those of you who are so addicted to coffee that you drink it later in the day and find it hard to sleep afterwards. It’s been shown to help people who are facing stress at the end of the day and could even help you sleep better.

If you are drinking coffee on a regular basis and you find yourself with digestive problems, then this is something you definitely need to work on. If you give up your regular cup of coffee and replace it with a great cup of ginger tea, you are going to see a great improvement in your digestive system.

In addition to that, ginger tea has been shown to help with any inflammation or joint problems you are dealing with. This is great if you are just waking up in the morning and have joint pain that you want to get rid of before you go on with your day.

And lastly, we have a drink that’s not so much herbal, but is great to wake you up in the morning and get your body started on the right foot. Coconut water comes with a punch of potassium that’s much more than a banana and comes with barely any sugar. This is great to replace the juice that you drink in the morning that could come with huge amounts of sugar.

And there you have it! If you are looking to replace your morning coffee with a new alternative, then you’ve got to keep these herbal alternatives in mind.

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

    Hello! I’m very excited to share what worked for me to everyone. I’m completely cured from my HSV1&2 with the use of natural medicine. I have used Oregano oil, Coconut oil, Acyclovir, Valacyclovir, Famciclovir and some other products/supplements and it hasn’t helped ever since I was diagnosed. I got outbreaks frequently and was completely devastated and I went online for a possible cure and how to get rid of Herpes. On a fateful day after taking my bath, I took my phone and was going through some research, I bumped into a testimonial of a Herbs doctor { Dr Awase } who cures diverse diseases/viruses with Herbal medication. I was hopeful but also doubted the claim. But after a while I thought “what do I have to lose?” so I decided to reach out through his email:- dr.awaseherbalhome@gmail.com He prepared a cure using roots and herbs which I steadily took for 14days as prescribed by him. I am quite glad I decided to reach out because I am totally cured from Herpes after a medical checkup was done by my Dr. So I’ve decided to make a quick testimony for anyone out there who is probably suffering from an illness they can’t handle to reach out to Dr Awase. He specializes in curing lots of illnesses such as HIV, ENDOMETRIOSIS, PCOS, OVARIAN CYST, IBS, INFERTILITY CANCER, AUTISM and lots more. I’m here to let you all know that you can also be cured just like me and you don’t have to live with any sort of illness for the rest of your life.

    I lost our marriage and beautiful home wrecked by unhappiness seeing my wife walk away over the lies she was fed with and insecurities which were never true. I vowed from the beginning never to be a cheat and stood my ground to ensure I built a happy home but unfortunately she never trusted me enough. I wandered for months trying to get her back and sought help from various sources including her family intervention but never yielded success. I came in contact with Dr Isikolo who I doubted at the earlier stage we got in contact with. I had to keep hope alive and complied with the procedures just the way he explained everything to me. He assured me of her return which happened after two to three days and i am yet to find words to express how happy and appreciative i am knowing my son and I had his mom back home to us. I am telling everyone about Dr Isikolo and his kind heart helping people. He won’t fail you if you try him out. Contact him via email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com You can also WhatsApp him on +2348133261196
