Pero Instant Beverage

Pero Instant Beverage

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic

PERO is a product from Switzerland, a 100% natural beverage with a coffee-like taste. It's 100% naturally caffeine free and blended from select all natural ingredients --- malted barley, barley, chicory and rye. And because PERO contains no stimulants it will not elevate heart rate or blood pressure, cause sleeplessness or create any adverse physical ailments typically associated with caffeine consumption. Plus, the low acidity of this natural beverage makes it easy to enjoy morning, noon or night without fear of stomach upset. We think the Extra Dark Roast Pero has a great coffee flavor compared to other coffee substitutes. Note: barley contains gluten.

Madhava Organic Agave Nectar

Madhava Organic Agave Nectar

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

While we still use it from time to time, we no longer recommend agave due to recent research on the manufacturing process and newly discovered interactions in the body/liver. The body processes agave in the liver like it processes high fructose corn syrup. That being said, Madhava is a good company. They have been in business for 35 years. They have both organic and kosher certification and are gluten and allergen free.

Guayaki Yerba Mate

Guayaki Yerba Mate

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Guayaki partners with small farmers and indigenous communities to source mate from the sub-tropical forests of South America. From the simple love of a beverage, Guayaki drinkers have become a driving force for conservation and community development by paying a fair trade price for rainforest-grown mate. Guayaki has a mission to restore 200,00 acres of rainforest and to create 1000 living wage jobs by 2020. In South America, yerba mate has been revered for centuries as the "drink of the gods" and is drunk daily for optimum health, sustained energy and mental clarity. Of the six commonly used stimulants in the world: yerba mate, coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa, and guarana, yerba mate triumphs as natures most balanced stimulant, delivering both energy and nutrition. If you must have caffeine, this is a good choice. We can not love this product enough!

GT's Synergy Kombucha

GT's Synergy Kombucha

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Kombucha tea is still controversial, depending on when it is harvested (must be an exact window of time for it to be "ripe"), however people still report positive benefits of this pro-biotic packed drink. Some perks are immediate increased energy levels, decreased appetite, improved digestion, healthier skin and hair, and even a stronger immune system. Contains: Beneficial pro-biotics, Live active enzymes, Antioxidants, Organic acids Polyphenols. Do not drink if you have Candida (yeast overgrowth). We love the taste of GT’s Synergy better than any other kombucha we have tried.
