BETTER BREW 1LB
No need to change your morning brewing ritual, but it is time to switch to a delicious detoxifying beverage that replaces some of your pills and powders. BETTER BREW can lower cholesterol, cleanse your blood and liver, give you an insane dose of antioxidants, improve your gut health, and provide you with the sustained energy you need to get through your day.
BETTER BREW is more than a coffee alternative as it can be brewed hot, cold, mixed into smoothies and actually tastes great with your favorite coffee. Those who want to lower their dependence on caffeine can mix 50% BETTER BREW into their daily cup of java. Others enjoy BETTER BREW as a stand-alone beverage.
Within the long list of healthy ingredients is raw Cacao, a natural non-addictive stimulant, which provides sustained energy and no negative effects on the nervous system. This alternative to caffeine may improve one’s mood while also providing high levels of antioxidants. Whereas caffeine and the acids in coffee may inhibit absorption of B vitamins and cause the excretion of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and trace minerals, BETTER BREW counters this by providing a bioavailable source of these important minerals. This mix of roots, seeds and one grain also provides a natural sleep aid, promotes blood circulation, acts as a liver tonic, blood purifier and assists in eliminating gas and acid indigestion. BETTER BREW also contains a prebiotic, Inulin, that supports a healthy population of beneficial digestive flora in the intestinal tract. In the end, this tasty drink may quickly become more than your morning beverage.

"Dandelion is one of the most complete plant foods on earth. All the vital nutrients are conveniently contained in a single source, in quantities that the body can easily process and fully absorb." Greg Tilford, prominent medical herbalist, herbal veterinarian, and author.
"Dandelion is regarded in diverse cultures worldwide, both among Western herbalists and in the Chinese Medical tradition as one of the best detoxification herbs that also has potent anti-cancer properties. Dandelion root promotes normal liver function by enhancing biliary detoxification. It also helps regulate insulin levels and it works as an effective aperient promoting normal bowel function and diuretic urinary function. The most advanced research on cardiovascular disease and cancer, two of the major killers in the world, is that these diseases are caused by, or attenuated by, inflammation. Dandelion root is one of the greatest herbs for relieving inflammation and is well known to exert a benefit in the natural treatment of both of these conditions.” Michael Tierra, world-renown herbalist.
