At Bootea, we know you want to know exactly what’s in your favourite foods and drinks, especially if you’re keen to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. We also think it’s important to be totally transparent about what’s in our best-selling products.
This month we launched Coffeetox, our brand-new detox coffee, which contains ingredients including fennel, dandelion root, guarana, Siberian ginseng and yerba mate. But what exactly are these ingredients, and why have we chosen them for our great-tasting detox coffee? Let’s take a look…
Brazilian ground coffee
Naturally, the main ingredient in Coffeetox is our delicious Brazilian ground coffee. Brazil is one of the world’s top coffee growing countries, creating blends that are rich, smooth and great-tasting – the perfect base for a detox coffee.
Fennel is a herb that offers literally dozens of benefits – not least its detoxing prowess! Fennel can help ease digestion, reduce water retention and prevent bloating if you’re prone to it, so it’s the ideal detox ingredient. Fennel also contains vitamin C, magnesium, vitamin K and calcium – plenty of useful vitamins and minerals that will help enhance your all-round health.
Yerba mate is a nutritional powerhouse! It’s commonly used in tea, and as well as being packed with vitamins and minerals, it contains phytonutrients, polyphenols and antioxidants – it’s fair to say that yerba mate ticks every box!
Dandelion root is fantastic for cleansing toxins from the body. It’s also bursting with vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B, C and D, iron, potassium and zinc. Dandelion has been used in herbal medicine for thousands of years and is a fantastic addition to our own Coffeetox.
Garcinia cambogia is a fruit commonly grown in Southeast Asia and India. It’s traditionally known as the Malabar tamarind, and can help you to beat cravings, as well as increasing your energy and stabilising blood sugar levels.
Guarana is one of the most famous plants to hail from the Amazon. It contains up to four times as much caffeine as a regular coffee bean, so you can be sure Coffeetox will liven you up for the day ahead!
Our Matcha Tea has been a best-seller, so we thought we’d add some amazing Japanese Matcha into our Coffeetox blend. Matcha is made from green tea leaves, and it’s fantastic for your overall health – it’s high in antioxidants and helps to detoxify your whole body. It also tastes great and adds a unique flavour to Coffeetox!
Siberian ginseng is a medicinal herb which can increase energy and make you feel more alert – the perfect companion to our Brazilian coffee and guarana!
So there you have it – each and every ingredient you’ll find in our unique Coffeetox blend. All natural, all effective, all delicious. Start your detox today!
