How our 'Energise' Ingredients can Boost Energy Levels
- Dandelion Root is beneficial to the digestive system and contains powerful antioxidants.
- Carob Pods have been used for their health benefits for over 4000 years! They are packed with antioxidants and can be used as an alternative to chocolate.
- Guarana Seeds is a natural stimulant and boosts energy levels and mental alertness. It also contains antioxidants.
- Yerba Mate is traditionally used to support mental function and provides smooth, prolonged increase in energy levels.
- Taraxacum officinale
- Paullina cupana
- Ceratonia siliqua
- Ilex paraguariensis
- Infuse a heaped teaspoon of the tisane in hot water using either an infuser, a teapot and strainer, or a cafetière and your favourite mug. Let the tisane infuse for up to 5-15 minutes. Drink when your energy levels need topping up.
*Holly's Tip* This tisane is best suited to be used with cafetieres or teapots to allow the tisane to steep without the water losing heat too quickly.
- Avoid excessive intake
- Avoid if pregnant.
This product contains a source of caffeine in the guarana seeds and yerba mate. Consuming large amounts of caffeine, particularly over long periods of time, can lead to insomnia, anxiety, tremors, upset stomach, increased heart rate.
The Effects of Caffeine
As with most things, coffee has been found to provide both health benefits and detriments. If your not ready to replace your morning coffee with a herbal tisane just yet, here are some of the ther health benefits of Energise:
- Dandelion is a diuretic; it flushes toxins from the body.It can also improve digestion through its gentle laxative effect.
- Guarana contains more antoixidants than green tea!
- Carob is also rich in antioxidants and can help lower blood cholestrol levels.
- Yerba Mate is yet another antioxidant rich ingredient. It promotes a healthy gastrointestinal tract and supports cardiovascular health.
Coffee tends to induce a spike in energy levels, which then falls quite rapidly or ‘crashes’. Guarana and Yerba Mate increase energy levels more steadily and keeps them elevated for a much longer time. This may be to do with the compounds in these herbs that effect the metabolism of caffeine in the body.
