When you’re on a journey to a healthy lifestyle, it’s really hard not to slide unintentionally from time to time especially if you’re so used to, let’s say, drinking coffee. I am a coffee lover though not a heavy drinker, but my day isn’t complete without a cuppa. Coffee, as we all know has caffeine and this primary ingredient can cause insomnia, palpitations, stomach upset for acidic, headache, anxiety, an increased risk of heart attack – need I say more?
So, what does a coffee lover more so if you are a coffee addict do?
Well, here’s where I’ll introduce a new brand in the market – BARLICO. It’s a healthy coffee substitute made of superfood ingredients such as barley and chicory. It’s caffeine free and comes in flavorful variants.
What is BARLICO?
Barlico coffee substitutes are 100% caffeine free and are made from nutritious ingredients, making them a health-conscious alternative for individuals whose health conditions and preferences limit their caffeine consumption.
Barley is one of the most widely consumed cereal grains in the world. It has high fiber content, loads of vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants that help with heart health issues and diabetes. On the other hand, Chicory a close relative of lettuce and cabbage has woody and fibrous roots that have a similar flavor as coffee when roasted and brewed. Among its many benefits include better gall bladder and liver function, improved bone health and more effective absorption of calcium by the body.
You can enjoy Barlico’s line of barley and chicory instant mixes, as their plant-based ingredients that are rich in fiber, potassium, folate, and Vitamin B have been scientifically proven to help lower bad cholesterol, promote bone health, cleanse the digestive system, improve kidney function, and aid in urinary and reproductive health.
The ‘kick’ that you get from Barlico comes from energy in natural and plant based sources, and not from caffeine.
I’ve been drinking Barlico since I got the boxes and my favorite is their 3-in-1. Morning trips to the comfort room have been easier than before because of its high fiber content. Amazingly, I don’t get sleepy in the middle of the day from lack of caffeine. Tastes really great as well as the Cappuccino variant. My eldest is not allowed to drink coffee thus drinks the Chocolate variant. Hubby who is acidic definitely loves the Instant Coffee Substitute Granules.
Barlico is available in different variants to suit every taste and preference, including Instant Coffee Substitute Granules (SRP Php 80), 3-in-1 (SRP Php 80), Cappuccino (SRP Php 110) and Chocolate (SRP Php 120). Barlico will hit the shelves in stores and supermarkets nationwide starting September 2017. Currently, Barlico is available for online orders through its Facebook and Instagram accounts.
