How Can This Ayurvedic Recipe Make Your Coffee Better?
Coffee is stimulating and depleting, but adding this Ayurvedic coffee booster can help mitigate the harmful effects of coffee. Grass-fed butter (rich in vitamin A which is key for adrenal and thyroid health) and nourishing coconut oil contain stable, healthy saturated fats that soothe your nerves and help protect your stomach lining from acidic coffee.
Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants, but is also a very strong stimulant and is therefore only recommended when it can be balanced with formulas such as this one. It is one of the few ways that Vata-types can safely enjoy a cup of coffee without getting over-stressed and depleting their adrenals. Even though it is high in fats, the idea is to utilize bulletproof coffee in a way that the fats are used as a source of energy. The fats help ‘time-release’ the caffeine for longer, sustainable energy.
Roasted dandelion gives a complementary flavor and supports the liver and adrenals. Cinnamon, Cardamom, and Rose are cooling and demulcent which will balance the heating and drying effects of coffee. Ashwagandha & Shatavari are a potent adaptogenic powerhouse that nourish the adrenals and nervous system.
