It’s no secret that a majority of the United States runs on coffee. Take a walk down the street in the morning and you’ll see plenty of people drinking their morning brew.
Just because we’re all hooked, though, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t experiment with some healthier alternatives. After all, coffee consumption has its downsides. Its acidity can cause digestive discomfort, harbor disease and throw off your gut flora. It can also lead to electrolyte deficiencies due to excessive urination.
A great alternative to coffee is tea. Tea is much lower in acidity, and while it can contain lower levels of caffeine, it’s still a great drink in the mornings. A great way to increase the benefits of tea, is to steep your tea in Evolution Alkaline Water!
