ENJOY TEECCINO’S NUTRITIOUS HEALTH BENEFITS
Every cup of Teeccino is brimming with nutritious health benefits that are naturally released during brewing from Teeccino’s herbs, roots, fruits and nuts. These nutrients are quickly absorbable from brewed Teeccino because the nutrients are suspended in liquid so digestion isn’t needed to remove them from fiber.
Our hearts like all of our muscles require potassium to function properly. Recently, the FDA has ruled that potassium is so essential to our health, it should be listed on the Nutrition Facts box on food and beverage labels. The FDA discovered that too many people are getting too little potassium because they’re not eating enough fruits, nuts, seeds and vegetables.
Potassium is in all of Teeccino’s ingredients. Ramón seeds are particularly high in potassium as are almonds, dates, figs, carob, and barley. Micronutrients in a cup of herbal tea often don’t register high enough to be listed in the Nutrition Facts box even though such small quantities are still health promoting. Potassium is an exception as significant amounts can extract right into your cup during brewing. Since the potassium is suspended in the liquid, it is immediately absorbed and put to work keeping your heart and your body healthy.
Soluble fiber is also heart healthy as it helps to reduce cholesterol and slow the absorption of carbohydrates and sugars. Soluble fiber in Teeccino comes from dates, figs, barley, chicory and dandelion.
Prebiotic Soluble Fiber:
Both chicory and dandelion roots contain high amounts of inulin, a prebiotic soluble fiber. Inulin helps maintain a healthy population of intestinal microbiota, more popularly known as probiotics, the beneficial microbes that comprise your microbiome. The microbiome is the name for the community of microbiota that was discovered when scientists decoded the DNA in our intestines.
It turns out that we are hosts to trillions of microbiota that play an essential role in our optimal health. In order to have a diverse and healthy microbiome, you need to feed your probiotics and inulin is one of their favorite foods. “Prebiotic” is the term for a type of soluble fiber like inulin that isn’t digested or absorbed by our bodies but is digested and turned into nutrients for us by our probiotics.
Although inulin is found in small quantities in many foods like wheat, garlic, artichokes, and sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes), chicory and dandelion contain much higher amounts of inulin. Inulin is now a popular food additive that is found in all kinds of foods like nutrition bars, ice cream, yogurt and bread as well as nutritional supplements. Sometimes, product labels call it “chicory fiber” because inulin can be extracted from chicory roots. However, Teeccino’s inulin is coming naturally into your cup straight from the chicory and dandelion roots during brewing.
