Chicory is not only an excellent side dish, or an ingredient of delicious soups and velvety, but it can be counted among the most valid alternatives to coffee. With its dried roots, an infusion is prepared to filter: but it can also be found in ready-made packages.
It has many beneficial effects: it helps digestion, regulates the heart rate, detoxifies the liver. It also helps to rebalance the intestinal bacterial flora, keeps blood sugar levels under control and combats free radicals, slowing down cellular ageing. It can be found in herbalists’ shops, organic shops or specialized supermarkets in the form of leaves, or insoluble version.
