Coffee Alternatives That Can Give a Kick without Side Effects

Ask a Question

I am not a prolific coffee drinker, i much prefer a mug of tea , white in my case which i take for its health benefits

But this article does give some alternatives that will boost your energy without the side effects of coffee which can be things like anxiety, insomnia, or upset stomach in some cases

Some alternatives i have heard of, such as Matcha and Guarana, but Yerba maté is a first and i am not sure i would want to try Mushroom Coffee , but i won't knock it without trying it first

What are your alternatives ?

Pfs I remember these P

Why they were wrapped in yellow cellophane is a mystery, maybe to help stop the bottle breaking if knocked against something hard ?

Here is an article about it , the most interesting fact for me is some people used the empty bottle as a hot water bottle when there was no central heating

Also some countries like the USA have banned it due to high sugar content and E numbers

I tend to have tea, usually black and green, but obviously the caffeine is quite high

I love mushrooms so will have to look into mushroom coffee. However I never get an energy boost from coffee. It does make me anxious if I drink too much though

Imnotcheap I also like mushrooms I , mainly with a fry up though and not as a drink

But i will be trying this out of curiosity

I went on holiday recently and they had a coffee machine in the restaurant with lots of different options

One i really liked was Caffè macchiato, although in cafes or bars i would normally go for a cafe latte, i prefer milky coffee although i take my tea black with no sugar , or not so black with white teabags 😉

Imnotcheap Heres an interesting article on mushroom coffee I

I didn't realise it is ground mushroom , medicinal, mixed with coffee beans

It does say there have not been any clinical trials though

Interestingly it says they drank mushroom coffee in Finland during the war due to a shortage of coffee beans

Oh and we can expect to pay double the price of normal coffee beans due to the expensive process it goes through
