Adaptogenic Coffee: How to Focus Without Afternoon Crashes

Adaptogenic Coffee: How to Focus Without Afternoon Crashes

Many of us start the day with a common morning ritual - a perfect cup of coffee. The audacity of being asked to work without a sip of rich, earthy goodness is a big no no in a coffee lover's world.

You get to mid-morning with blog writing being on top form, all emails have been answered in milliseconds and you're feeling invincible - then the afternoon slump soon kicks those euphoric feelings into touch. 

A heavy lunch alongside a caffeine crash is a recipe for productivity disaster. Your colleagues will soon be handing out pillows and blankets if you keep yawning at that rate!

So, here's where adaptogenic coffee enters the picture and how it could help your focus levels throughout the full working day...

What Is Adaptogenic Coffee?

Adaptogens are herbs specifically chosen for their properties to help your body cope and adapt with stresses. Combined with exercise and a healthy diet, this is a great way to align your wellbeing with nature. 

Many scientific studies have stated that adaptogens are particularly powerful for decreasing internal inflammation, promoting oxidation in the body and aligning mental focus/strength to reduce fatigue. 

Which Herbs Are Adaptogens?

Many adaptogenic herbs have been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Eastern remedies for thousands of years...

In terms of taste, these herbs in raw form can be particularly potent. Therefore, infusing them with rich Arabica coffee is one easy way to consume adaptogens without pushing your tastebuds to their limits. 

Benefits of Drinking Adaptogenic Coffee 

Coffee is naturally rich in polyphenols, which are known for their ability to modulate energy - hence the buzz when drinking your favourite cuppa, although as we alluded to earlier this effect typically lasts for only a few hours.

Combining adaptogenic herbs with traditional coffee can potentially assist in a variety of ways:

  • Improve mental clarity
  • Maintain focus for longer
  • Reduce brain fog/procrastination 
  • Fight fatigue
  • Assist sleep quality
  • Soothe internal inflammation 

  

How Often Should I Drink Focus Coffee? 

To maintain mental clarity and focus during your working day, we recommend using 2 teaspoons (4g) per serving for the perfect cuppa.

Add your choice of milk if desired, and drink 1-2 servings per day to naturally aid your health and wellbeing goals.
