There are many very good reasons for wanting to avoid caffeine. In fact caffeine has been linked with numerous health problems, for example, caffeine can irritate nervousness and irritability. It is well known for itís links with insomnia, but that is by no means all - it can stimulate eczema, provoke osteoporosis as well as aggravate heart, bladder and prostrate conditions. Caffeine is a natural diuretic and can contribute to dehydration. Caffeine is well know to inhibit the absorption of some vitamins and can even give you palpitations. Caffeine is a friendly name for xanthine alkaloid which is a psychoactive stimulant drug which stimulates our central nervous system. Nature uses caffeine to paralyse and kill some insects that would damage the plants it occurs in. All in all best avoided hey?
Avoiding caffeine however can be easier said than done. Caffeine can truly be called a natural product as it is found naturally occuring in the beans, leaves and fruit of some plants. The majority of our traditionally favourite hot and cold beverages are caffeine based - coffee, tea, coke, hot chocolate, chocolate milk shake, yerba mate, guarana and other energy drinks. It can be a task to find an alternative that woos the taste buds in quite the same way.
Here we have scoured the nations and found a selection of products that fit the caffeine free bill. Some are delicious, some are an acquired taste (but once acquired, they are great), but all are caffeine free. This could be an end to your restless sleep and irritability?!
We have included de-decaffeinated teas, coffees and soft drinks in our selection. However decaffeinated beverages are not completely caffeine free and may still contain up to 4 or 5 % caffeine. Some teas, like Rooibos, are naturally caffeine free, as is carob so opt for these as great alternatives.
Remember that once you have selected caffeine free to narrow your search you will no longer see any other products other than those marked caffeine free. This may not be a problem but just to remind you that we only mark as caffeine free relevent products and so herb teas and fruit teas may not be labelled even though they have no caffeine content.
