4 Natural Stimulants To Help You Be Your Best

Glass drink.jpeg

Don’t get us wrong; coffee is great!  However, recently we have been looking into other natural stimulants that can help you get through those mornings when you just need a boost! After trying number one on our list (and it proved very effective), we are keen to try more! First, however, a little disclaimer: We are not dieticians, and you should always consult your doctor before changing your diet!

Mate Tea

Mate Tea is famous for having all the benefits of coffee, without the crash. You read that right, without the crash! It is something that has become quite popular in the Cone office. Our Marketing Manager Chloe was so impressed that she has written a whole blog post about the benefits, check it out.

Cacao Nibs or Powder

Cacao contains natural energising stimulants and is rich in antioxidants! Cacao is great for adding flavour to your energy balls or smoothies and is also known to increase your metabolism and kerb hunger pains! Fewer hunger pains? Sign us up!

Maca comes in the form of a powder or a capsule and increases energy, stamina and mood and really, let’s face it, apart from time, these are the 3 things that every driven entrepreneur wants and needs most. We are logging into Amazon ASAP.

Ginseng is meant to give the same quick fix as coffee with extra added benefits. You can consume ginseng in the form of a powder, tea, or a pill! I think we will try the powder method to avoid tea overload!

I think next on the list is to stock the Cone office with some handmade energy balls filled with Cacao nibs! What are your thoughts? Loyal to coffee or are you up for trying something new? Let us know if you do and tag us on Instagram!
