I am gonna be honest here… I LOVE coffee. The morning ritual, the rich aroma, the bitter taste, … I love the whole experience. It just works for me!
But this year has been crazy busy. Being a mom of small kids and running my own business often leaves me feeling tired and overwhelmed. When I feel that way, I find myself reaching for more and more coffee to help me get through the day.
And that definitely does not work for me.
Too much coffee negatively affects the liver, which makes it hard for your body to process and clear a lot of things, including hormones. For me this pretty quickly results in grumpy PMS and cycle related migraines. Sound familiar to anyone else?
I knew I needed to reign it in. It’s all about finding the right balance. And discovering healthy alternatives.
IN COMES HERBAL COFFEE 🙂
Seriously, this herbal coffee is so yummy. And it satisfies that afternoon craving when I need a little treat, a moment to sit and breathe and enjoy a hot beverage.
Better yet, it supports liver health! Dandelion Root & Burdock Root both strengthen liver function and improve liver clearance.
