Hassle-Free Healthy(ish) Lifestyle With Barlico The Healthy Brew

I usually start and end my day with a cup of coffee. It might not be the healthiest of habits, but I've read a few articles about the health benefits of coffee that I never feel too guilty about it. In fact, a wonderful new study links coffee drinking with a longer life. People who drank three to five cups of coffee a day had a 15% lower risk of premature death compared to non-drinkers. So yeah, believe it or not, coffee is good for you and it's not gonna kill you, as long as it's not a venti Frappuccino that's loaded with cream and sugar. (Sorry!)


Today, there is more good news on that. There's a healthy(ish) coffee substitute to try that is  💯% caffeine free and won't trigger your acid reflux. It'll give you that "caffeine fix" without giving you difficulty sleeping at night.

Oh, by the way, Barlico is safe din for preggy and breastfeeding moms as its organic ingredients are excellent for breasfeeding. This just proves how safe and healthy Barlico wellness drink is! :)

Barlico, the coffee substitute raved for its natural health benefits from the world’s healthiest food plants barley and chicory. It also received the golden seal as Asian Consumers’ Choice for Best Wellness Drink.

It is made of barley grass from barley plant, which is among the earliest grown sweetgrass in the world that traces its history even before 5000 BC, popular among ancient Greeks and Romans. It’s been dubbed as “nature’s best fast food” attributing to its multidimensional health benefits.

Here are some of the health benefits of barley:
  •     Can help with weight loss;
  •     Helps control blood sugar levels and improve insulin response, reducing risk of type 2 diabetes;
  •     Helps reduce blood pressure;
  •     Improves lipid profile and reduces cholesterol, which reduces risk of cardiovascular disease;
  •     Helps reduce inflammation due to levels of antioxidants and phytochemicals;
  • Contains moderate protein content (10 percent) and contains a protein complex which forms gluten (although a smaller amount than wheat);
  • High in soluble fibre, specifically beta-glucan, which is beneficial for gut health;
  • Has a low glycaemic index (GI) to assist blood glucose control;
  • High in potassium and low in sodium and fat.
Aside from barley, one cup of Barlico contains healthy superpowers from chicory.  Chicory is a woody, herbaceous plant close to lettuce and cabbage that originated in Europe. It has always been regarded for its wealth of health benefits with similar flavors and aroma of coffee.

The chicory in Barlico makes a perfect treat in replacement of coffee, without actually getting the bad effects of coffee such as palpitation, stomach upset and acidity.  Chicory in Barlico also helps ease digestive problems, as well as significantly improves the balance of blood and plasma in the body, which reduces the chances of cardiovascular diseases.
