Antioxidant Drinks
and Reishi Coffee

Antioxidant drinks such as Reishi coffee (aka ganoderma coffee), Yerba mate tea, and traditional Noni juice can help your body to fight the aging process. 

Noni juice benefits are numerous!  Noni juice has been used by the Polynesians to stay healthy for countless numbers of years. 

Boosting the immune system is one of its health benefits because noni contains a ton of antioxidants. 

However, if you ask most people what they're drinking that contains a lot of antioxidants?  The answer will most likely be coffee!

Did you know that coffee can come with a lot of side effects?  And switching to a healthier coffee like reishi or ganoderma cuts down on the side effects associated with caffeine.

Another alternative would be switching to Yerba mate tea which gives you energy similar to coffee, but without coffee's side effects.

The Most Popular Antioxidant Drink

Coffee seems to be where most Americans have been getting a lot of their antioxidants lately.  It's probably the most popular of all the antioxidant drinks in the world.  

Lightly roasted coffee will contain the highest antioxidant levels and dark roasted coffee will contain the lowest.

If you choose coffee as a source of antioxidants, keep this in mind:

  • Smaller producers usually hand-pick their beans and this offers more quality
  • Over processing will ruin antioxidant levels and sun drying is preferred
  • The best coffees are grown without pesticides or the use of harmful herbicides
  • Look for coffee that was produced from the reddest and the ripest cherries - for the best tasting antioxidant drinks

What is Reishi?

This powerful mushroom contains 200 active nutrients, vitamins & minerals, and 150+ antioxidants.  Reishi contains polysaccharides that are responsible for its immune boosting effects.

The reishi mushroom grows on decaying wood or on tree stumps.  You may find reishi growing on hemlock, maple, pine, and oak trees. 

Reishi is native to Japan, China, and North  America.  The reishi mushroom will fruit in warmer weather from spring through fall. 

Reishi is Known for Helping......

Reishi is a medicinal mushroom that's an adaptogenic herb.

Reishi can bring your body back to homeostasis.

It's also known as Ganoderma Lucidum or Lingzhi. 

This medicinal mushroom has a 4000+ year record of being used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

  • Blood Pressure & Heart Problems
  • Inflammation
  • Ulcers & Food Allergies
  • Fatigue & Depression
  • Liver Problems
  • Asthma
  • Cancer & HIV
  • Blood Sugar Problems
  • Balancing Hormone Levels
  • Increasing Longevity
  • And the list goes on.........

Lingzhi is the Chinese name for reishi and it means "herb of spiritual potency".  And I have to say that it does have a very spiritual side effect.

What is Reishi Coffee?

Why put the Reishi Mushroom in Coffee?  Because you'll end up with a smooth and non-acidic cup of coffee!

And you can have a cup of Reishi coffee anywhere you go because this is an instant coffee with powdered Reishi or Ganoderma added.

There is no need for a coffee machine - you just add hot water.

Reishi coffee also known as Ganoderma coffee is the only coffee that I don't get a "stressed" reaction from - which is what happens when I drink "regular" coffee.

The Better Antioxidant Drink!

I prefer the Ganoderma 2 in 1 Black Coffee because of the high amount of Reishi Mushroom that it contains. 

I only use half of the packet at a time - which is all the caffeine that I need to get going.

You might also want to try the Cafe Avarle Healthy Black Coffee which contains both Reishi and Cordyceps Medicinal Mushrooms.

Yerba Mate Antioxidant Drink

Yerba mate or mate for short is a traditional South American antioxidant drink.  Mate has been consumed and enjoyed for centuries by the people across South America.

Yerba mate was called "the drink of the gods" by many indigenous South Americans.

Yerba mate is traditionally consumed in a gourd and sipped with a metal straw that has a filter at its lower end which strains out the tea leaves.

Sharing mate tea from this traditional gourd is said to be a sign of friendship.

To prepare the tea, you would fill the bottom third of the gourd with dried mate leaves and then add the hot water. 

If you do not have a traditional vessel, you can also use a French press.

Health Benefits of Yerba Mate......

Yerba mate may help to lower your blood sugar.

It may also reduce the formation of AGEs (advanced glycation end products).

AGEs can be involved with the development and worsening of many diseases.

  • Improves Mental Focus
  • Digestive Aid
  • Anti-Parasitic & Anti-Fungal
  • Helps with Weight Loss
  • Combats Fatigue & Depression
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Rich in Nutrients

Yerba mate's many health benefits will include protecting your heart and cardiovascular system because of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

The antioxidant power of Yerba mate tea appears to be slightly higher than that of green tea.  And this tea may exhibit more antioxidant power than any other tea-based antioxidant drinks!

Yerba mate also appears to decrease your appetite and can boost your metabolism which helps with weight loss.

This impressive herbal tea is made from the dried leaves of a plant found only in places like Brazil. 

I first experienced Yerba mate at a farm we stayed at for 4 months in North Carolina.  They were experts in making this drink because they also had a Yerba mate business.

They would serve Yerba mate tea during the morning with breakfast and also with lunch.  They also served mate tea during Sabbath and on other special occasions.

This tea is often served with a sweetener, lemon juice or milk.  Yerba mate tea is traditionally consumed hot, but can also be consumed cold.

I had so many tasty variations of this tea at that farm, but my favorite was the mate lemonade - served cold.

Great Replacement for Coffee!

Mate stimulates the nervous system and is usually consumed to get an energy boost.  It makes a great replacement for coffee!

When compared to a stimulating drink like coffee, mate delivers a more balanced energy boost. 

I was told that mate contains mateine instead of caffeine which delivers a less addictive and less jittery antioxidant drink.

Yerba mate definitely had a different effect on my nervous system - that's for sure!  However, after looking into the matter, it appears that mateine may actually be a healthier version of caffeine.

They gave us a bunch of mate when we left the farm.  Lately, I've been making Yerba mate kombucha as an experiment and it's pretty good!

Noni Juice Antioxidant Drink

Noni Juice is made from the fruit of the Noni tree.  The Noni tree is found in subtropical and tropical areas of the world such as Hawaii or Tahiti.  

Surprisingly, the Noni tree is actually part of the coffee family of plants.

I had a friend in Hawaii that came down with breast cancer and she used Noni juice as part of her healing protocol.

Tahitian Noni seems to possess some of the greatest Noni health benefits.  However, the Hawaiian Noni has great healing properties as well.

Noni was called the "Fruit of God" because people used the Noni fruit for medicinal reasons.

Noni's antioxidants seem to exhibit more activity than grape seed extract and Noni juice is known as a "Super Antioxidant". 

Noni has been an essential part of traditional Polynesian Medicine for a very long time. 

Noni Juice Health Benefits......

Noni juice has an impressive range of B vitamins, essential minerals, amino acids, and phytonutrients.

Noni juice has a tremendous anti-oxidative potential and seeks out damaging free radicals to neutralize their negative effects.

  • Stimulates Digestion
  • Protects the Heart
  • Anti-Fungal
  • Anti-Parasitic
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Protects the Liver
  • Anti-Psychotic & Pain Killer
  • Improves the Memory

Noni juice can help relief inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.  It can also provide relief for menstrual pain and endometriosis.

Noni juice also affects your mood and the production of serotonin.  And it can positively affect the entire endocrine system.

Apparently the leaves, bark, and roots of the Noni tree were also used by the Polynesians.

For thousands of years, the healing power of Noni juice has been recognized for its ability to boost energy levels, accelerate wound healing, and increase body strength.

Noni juice may be one of the most potent antioxidant drinks!  And will have the most health benefits when it's traditionally made and unpasteurized.

Good luck finding traditionally made Noni juice on the mainland as I've only seen this antioxidant drink in Hawaii, but maybe it's a good reason to visit!
