Our GFC Lattes are our signature creations crafted to make you feel great. Our blends are unique and “super-powered,” as we like to say, because they contain superfoods and adaptogens and are packed with antioxidants.
Superfoods have been classified as “superfoods” because they are loaded with health-promoting nutrients, antioxidants and phytochemicals (disease-fighting chemicals found in plants).
Adaptogens are foods or ingredients that help your body adapt to stress or change. So, if you’re stressed, these herbs help bring you back down to a calm level. If you’re exhausted, they’ll help give you a boost. Adaptogens date back to Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. They are not new, incredibly ancient in fact, they are just only more recently being recognized for their powerful abilities.
Antioxidants are chemical compounds that prevent aging and chronic diseases due to their ability to counteract oxidative stress and the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that are produced naturally as your body performs its everyday functions, like breathing, OR from external factors like pollution, radiation, UV-rays, cigarette smoke, alcohol and excessive stress. Free radicals can damage collagen causing skin dryness, fine lines, wrinkles and premature ageing but worse, when free radicals get out of balance and accumulate (called oxidative stress) they can damage cell structures which can result in the development of illnesses like cancer, autoimmune disorders, heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
Antioxidants prevent the production of free radicals, thus oxidative stress, so the more you consume the better your skin will look and the fewer illnesses and diseases you’ll experience. Our latte blends are antioxidant packed.
