Starting your day with fire, focus and maximum success-potential begins with upgrading your breakfast beverage.
BossBabe CEO, Natalie Ellis, swears by her morning liquid lineup. After sipping down a glass of warm lemon water, and before whipping up a hormone-balancing smoothie from this book, Natalie throws together a superfood latte with ingredients guaranteed to light you up.
Here at BossBabe we’re all about biohacking for success. We love finding simple solutions for improving performance from the inside out. Natalie’s morning tonic recipe hits the nail on the head. The simple but powerful blend is amazing for boosting focus, balancing blood sugar and providing non-tweaky energy for hours.
While classic coffee might give your mind and body a jolt of energy, its effects wear off and can leave you more drained than when you took that first sip. Enhancing your cuppa with a couple of key ingredients can help you avoid an energy crash and amp up your performance throughout the day.

What’s In The Morning Tonic?
Lion’s Mane | Medicinal mushrooms are amazing for enhancing cognitive function. When it comes to boosting mental performance, lion’s mane is queen. This natural nootropic supports memory, focus and concentration without making you feel wired. SHOP NOW
MCT Oil |MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, a fat naturally found in coconut oil. MCT has an unusual chemical structure that allows the body to digest the fats easily, turning them into fuel rather than stored fat. MCTs are processed quickly and are believed to stimulate fat burning, metabolism and both mental and physical energy production. SHOP NOW
Inulin Fiber | Inulin is a type of soluble fiber found in many plants. Adding inulin to your morning tonic helps support digestive and immune system detox. Natalie’s favorite blend features a blend of medicinal superfoods that help boost brain-power and create balance in the body. The key players include reishi, an adaptogenic mushroom that helps the body regulate itself, and improves memory and cognitive function by promoting nerve growth; turmeric which has been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer activities; and cacao, which provides non-caffeinated energy and even has mood-boosting properties.
