What is the Best Alternative to Morning Coffee?

What is the Best Alternative to Morning Coffee?

Teacher Power recently released a brand new take on its classic drink formula:  the Immunity Boosting energy drink in the fall-appropriate flavors Caramel Apple and Wassail. 

This new formula is wonderfully festive and contains more immunity-boosting energy than ever before. 


While exciting, this innovation may raise a few questions. You might be asking yourself, “What’s the difference between the new immunity-boosting energy drinks and the other Teacher Power flavors?” Or maybe you’re wondering, “Which Teacher Power formula is the best alternative to my morning cup of coffee?” 


Lucky for you, I’m here to help! Read on for all the information you’ll need to decide which Teacher Power formula is right for you.  


Immunity-Boosting Enhancements to the Classic Teacher Power Formula 

Every year, I eagerly await the first crisp autumn day. I can’t wait to wear my favorite green wool sweater without collapsing from heatstroke, or enduring questioning looks from t-shirt-donning passersby. But I don’t relish the sniffles, coughs, and nasal congestion that come with colder weather.  

With the return of in-person classes, schools are once again breeding grounds for seasonal illnesses like the flu and the common cold. According to Yale Medicine, the 2021 cold and flu season has the potential to be especially grueling, since students were unable to build immunity to common viruses during the isolation of 2020.  

Luckily, Teacher Power has tailored its classic recipe to fit the needs of teachers in this exciting but germ-ridden back-to-school season. The two new Immunity-Boosting flavors, Caramel Apple and Wassail, are specially formulated to keep you happy, healthy, and sniffle-free this fall and winter. 


To help support the immune health of hard-working teachers, Teacher Power has only added an impressive array of immune-supporting vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, Vitamin D, ginger, and zinc to its classic formula.  

Jam-Packed with Powerful Antioxidants 

Oxidation is a normal and naturally occurring chemical reaction that occurs in the human body. During oxidation, electrons are transferred between molecules, changing the structure and characteristics of those molecules.  

Metal rusting and cellular respiration (the process by which cells turn food and oxygen into energy) are two types of oxidation.  

While oxidation is a normal, and even necessary part of the body’s metabolic functions, it can also lead to a buildup of free radicals. Free radicals are reactive, unstable molecules that are produced by oxidation. 

Health amounts of free radicals support your immune system by helping the body fight off infection. However, large concentrations of free radicals can cause oxidative stress.  

Negative side-effects of oxidative stress include high blood pressure, asthma, male infertility, diabetes, chronic fatigue, and increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Free radicals have also been shown to accelerate the physical effects of aging. 

This is where antioxidants come into play. Since electrons prefer to exist in pairs, an antioxidant can neutralize an unstable free radical by donating an electron.  

The Immunity Boost Teacher Power flavors are filled to the brim with powerful antioxidants that help keep your body in balance and avoid the side effects of oxidative stress. That makes drinking Teacher Power an easy way to keep free radicals in check.  

And in my opinion, drinking a cup of Teacher Power is way more fun and refreshing than taking a traditional vitamin supplement. 

To optimize the health benefits of Immunity Boost Teacher Power, it’s important to stay hydrated and eat a healthy, balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables.  

For an easy, delicious breakfast rich in antioxidants and amino acids, pair a mug of Teacher Power with a serving of eggs and a side of your favorite fruit. (Don’t worry if you don’t like eggs.  Any food that is a good source of protein will work just as well.) 

Enjoy a Cup of Teacher Power Hot or Cold 


One of my favorite things about the new Immunity Boosting Teacher Power formula is that you can enjoy it hot or cold!  

There is nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold glass of Fruit Punch or Black Cherry Teacher Power on a hot summer’s day. But in the colder months, I prefer to snuggle up inside with a steaming hot mug of something delicious.  


The seasonal warmth of the Caramel Apple and Wassail energy drinks makes Immunity Boost Teacher Power an ideal substitute not only for coffee and soda but also for your favorite fall drinks like hot apple cider. 

This year, I can’t wait to celebrate Halloween by watching It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown as I sip a delicious hot cup of Caramel Apple Teacher Power.  

Come holiday season, you’ll catch me watching the snow fall softly outside my bedroom window, huddled under a warm knitted blanket and sipping some Immunity-Boosting Wassail. Maybe I’ll even use the Teacher Power mug to complete the picture! 

Don’t get me wrong. Of course, you can still drink the Caramel Apple or Wassail flavors cold if that’s what you prefer. But to me, a hot, sweet-smelling beverage in a cute mug is simply the reason for the season. 

Teacher Power Helps Teachers Save Money and Cut Calories 


All of Teacher Power’s energy drink flavors are great for both your body and your wallet,  

Both Immunity-Boosting Teacher Power flavors have zero calories per serving! Like the original flavors, Caramel Apple and Wassail deliver great flavor and a powerful caffeine boost while conforming to even the strictest of diets. 

And with 70 servings in every container, the Immunity-Boosting Teacher Power energy drink costs just under 40 cents per serving. That’s significantly less expensive than any drink you could buy from a coffee shop or vending machine. 

So save yourself the time, the money, and the hassle of buying coffee by adopting Teacher Power as the perfect substitute for coffee or soda. 

Teacher Power Was Designed With Teachers in Mind 

At the end of the day, you can’t go wrong with either Teacher Power formula because both were designed with your wants and needs in mind. Each Teacher Power flavor, from Black Cherry to Wassail, is designed to be delicious and refreshing. Each sip is jam-packed with flavor, nutrients, and an invigorating caffeine kick.  

Teacher Power is simply the best healthy energy drink on the market. Don’t believe me? Try it yourself with the popular Teacher Power Sampler Pack.
