Why are Chicory Products good for you?

The fiber from this root is purported to have numerous health benefits and often extracted for use as a food additive or supplement.

Chicory is used for loss of appetite, upset stomach, constipation, liver and gallbladder disorders, cancer, and rapid heartbeat. It is also used as a “tonic,” to increase urine production, to protect the liver, and to balance the stimulant effect of coffee.  Chicory root has a mild laxative effect, increases bile from the gallbladder, and decreases swelling. Chicory is a rich source of beta-carotene.

Chicory products can be found online, at most leading alternative health and lifestyle retailers.


Chicory Root Tea Recipe With Cinnamon

Ingredients (Makes 1 Cup)
2 tablespoons ground or chopped Chicory root
1 cup water
1 cinnamon stick (whole, not powdered)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey or sweetener of your choice (optional)

Boil the water in a sauce pan.

In a tea kettle, put in Chicory root and the cinnamon stick.  Pour the boiling water into the tea kettle.  Cover the kettle and let the tea steep for 3 to 5 minutes.

Remove the cinnamon stick, then pour the tea into a blender along with the coconut oil.  Blend the tea and oil on high for 15 to 30 seconds.  Alternatively you can just strain out the chunks of root with a cheese cloth.

Pour the tea into a cup.  Add in honey or other sweeteners of your choice, if you wish.  Serve and enjoy while warm.
