The only alternative to coffee that doesn't feel like a poor substitute for me. Licorice root. Super sweet, smells heavenly and supposedly treats adrenal fatigue. As a natural stress-head and over-caffeinator, my poor adrenal system needs all the love and cuddles I can give it!

It reportedly supports the adrenal system by balancing the level of cortisol (stress hormone) in the body. It's an anti-inflammatory and can also aid in upper respiratory inflammation (asthma, phlegm) and apparently, indigestion and water retention. But hey, what matters is it tastes addictively good. Please be aware that ALL herbs contain properties that may not be suitable for you depending on interaction with existing health conditions or medication. Please do your research to make sure it's safe for you. 1 - 2 cups daily is the suggested dose.
