Kicking the Caffeine Habit:
The social prevalence of coffee drinking and the addictive side effects of caffeine can cause problems with patient compliance. Caffeine-free herbal coffee marketed under the brand name of Teeccino� helps coffee drinkers replace their regular or decaf coffee with a satisfying alternative. Coffee drinkers need a dark, full-bodied, robust brew to help satisfy their coffee craving. Teeccino satisfies the 4 needs coffee drinkers require in a coffee alternative:

  1. Teeccino brews just like coffee, allowing coffee drinkers to keep their same brewing ritual.
  2. It has a delicious, deep roasted flavor that is very coffee-like.
  3. It wafts an enticing aroma.
  4. People experience a natural energy boost from nutritious Teeccino.

Teeccino offers the following health benefits to people suffering from upper GI tract disorders:
