ROOTS CAFE ~ a caffeine-free ‘Root coffee’ and tonic drink. A coffee alternative if you will…

Unlike coffee which is made from a roasted berry, Roots cafe is made from roasted roots of plants and mushrooms, offering a similar earthy depth and flavour, with a pinch of cardamon, how coffee is drunk traditionally, parfait. This powder can be brewed in a cafetiere, percolator, stove top, V60, or filter.

Key Benefits

Brew a microbiome-gut-friendly tonic drink full of prebiotic roots and mushrooms that have been carefully formulated by a Practitioner. Prebiotics are the food for probiotics (the bacteria in your gut). This is how we strengthen, feed, and harmonise our microbiome.

  • Corrects dysbiosis and clears toxins ‘ama’ from the gut
  • Supports the liver in detoxification and supports the clearance of acne
  • Removes excess ‘pitta’ from the body
  • Supports the immune system
  • Build resilience to stress by regulating the HPA axis

Pregnancy Benefits

The herbs in this formula were inspired by people who cannot have caffeine, especially pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. To date, there is no research to suggest any toxicity and pregnancy with these herbs and mushrooms. Reishi is the third ingredient in Roots Cafe. Traditionally there is a saying ‘reishi baby’ in which the mushroom provides an anchor for mothers during pregnancy, as well as during birth.

There is little peer-reviewed research available on the use of medicinal mushrooms during pregnancy and because these herbs and mushrooms involve changes in immune function, it is best to proceed with care. Always work with your instincts, go slow and work with a practitioner if you are unsure. Emma has formulated this product with a small amount of mushrooms for a reason, slow small dosing over a prolonged amount of time is superior to large doses over a short time.

LADY Apothecary

LADY Apothecary is founded by Emma Marigold, a medical herbalist & Ayurvedic practitioner.

Where west meets east, Emma practices traditional western herbal medicine which originates from Ancient Greece & Ayurvedic medicine from India.

Both weave together & bear many similarities, likely from the same origin, integrating the elements, finding harmony within the ‘humors/doshas’, the constitution we are born with, the dominant elements that make us up (fire, water, air, ether).

Both these cultures sit close in the heart of LADY Apothecary & influence many aspects of this growing community.
