Morning Should Not Start With Coffee

A school year is getting to its final stage and it is harder to find energy for everything. Not only coffee, but other natural energy boosters are ready to help you. These drinks will energize your body and strengthen your immune system.

  1. Cocoa with Orange Juice

Cocoa with orange juice fills the body with nutrition and vitamins. It quickly causes a feeling of satiety: drink it in the morning, and you won’t be hungry until lunch time. To prepare, boil cocoa with milk, squeeze a half of orange, grate an orange peel and mix it all together.

  1. Grapefruit Juice with Mint

This drink is highly nutritious, thus it contains a minimum of calories. Grapefruit strengthens the immune system and copes with apathy and depressed mood. To make fresh, squeeze the juice of one grapefruit and a pair of lemon slices, add mint and sugar syrup.

  1. Chicory

Instant chicory is probably the most popular coffee substitute, because it has a similar taste.  This drink contains potassium, phosphorus and calcium. It eliminates toxins, reduces blood sugar and provides energy. Chicory is also recommended for diabetics.

  1. Ginger Tea

In contrast to coffee, ginger tea has a long-lasting effect. This drink is useful especially for people, who are engaged in intellectual work. It is very simple to prepare: take a piece of ginger root, peel it, chop it with a knife, pour boiling water over it and add some honey.

  1. Green Tea

Green tea contains caffeine. Its effect begins later, than the effect of caffeine in coffee. However, it lasts longer. We recommend buying loose tea and make it with water under 80–85 ° C. Add lemon or sugar to match your individual taste.

  1. Hibiscus Tea

Red tea from hibiscus petals is valued for its refreshing and invigorating nature. Hibiscus contains 13 organic acids as well as vitamins, minerals and biologically active substances, which increase physical endurance and reduce nervous tension.

  1. Ginseng Infusion

Ginseng root infusion increases body resistance to infection, suppresses stress and physical overload. It helps to be active all day long. It is important to note that ginseng infusion is non-addictive and does not disturb sleep.

  1. Kombucha

This drink invigorates, removes excess fluid from the body and helps to keep in shape. You may be surprised, but nowadays it is not necessary to grow kombucha at home. You can buy it in a store specializing in healthy lifestyle.

  1. Water with Lemon

People who regularly drink water with lemon claim that it can displace coffee from the diet. Would you like to check? Take it only on an empty stomach, 15-30 minutes before breakfast. To sweeten the drink, add a teaspoon of honey.

  1. Coconut Water

Coconut water contains a lot of potassium, which has a positive effect on cardiovascular system. It perfectly compensates the lack of fluid in the body. In addition, it improves digestion and lowers blood sugar.
