Slackin' on your latte game?  beef it up with a couple of our favorite spices, juices and teas.

beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin c, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). beets also contain the b vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.

turmeric helps fight inflammation, protects the heart in various ways, is helpful for arthritis, is brain-boosting and may be helpful for fighting diabetes and cancer.

matcha is high in b-12 and l-theanine, both of which are shown to help with depression, especially among vegetarians.  among antioxidants, catechins are the most potent and beneficial and one specific catechin called epigallocatechin gallate (egcg) makes up 60% of the catechins in matcha green tea. out of all the antioxidants, egcg is the most widely recognized for its cancer fighting properties.
