If you are one of my avid readers.... which I think you are because you are reading this post now (hehehe joke lang), I think you know that I am such an avid fan of (1) anything and everything organic, (2) urban gardening and (3) Filipino made products.
That is why I am extremely happy writing this article because all three categories I mentioned are present in this happy and beneficial product >>> BAYANI BREW!
WHY DO I RAVE ABOUT BAYANI BREW?
GOOD FOR THE BODY:
Social enterprise Bayani Brew, known for their use of local ingredients to produce all-natural brews, aims to help the fast food-loving Pinoy achieve a healthy balance with its detox teas or ‘teatox’. Brewed from organically farmed detox greens, these drinks don’t just get rid of toxins but also nourish one’s body with vitamins and minerals. You might ask, where do we get all these toxins? From the processed food that we all love to eat. When consumed at a regular basis, can pose serious health risks ranging from obesity, heart problems to hormone imbalances.
Not only good for the body, but good for the budget as well.... priced 60% less than popular detox drinks, this line of teas helps flush out the toxins that accumulate in body without the laxative effect.
The Brew Crew also encourages us to be physically active. I got to listen to some inspiring words from fitness gurus during the event :)

GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY:
Staying true to its local farming roots, the new Bayani Brew variants draw inspiration from the healthy 'tsaa' (tea) recipes found all over the country. The brand uses primarily climate-resilient and perennially-grown crops such as lemongrass (tanglad), sweet potato tops (talbos ng kamote) and pandan. If these crops are abundant in our country, why don't we take advantage of it, right?
By advocating the use of local ingredients, Bayani Brew hopes to help lift Filipino farmers and agricultural workers out of poverty. That is the beauty of social entrepreneurship. You, as an end consumer benefit from the drink, and at the same time help and support local farmers. If only I have the means, and of course the budget to start it -- I would really really go into social entrepreneurship. Call it as one of my many goals in life :)
GOOD FOR THE TASTEBUDS:
Of the three new flavors of Bayani Brew, the SWEET POTATO LEAF TEA is my favorite. It is iron-rich and also helps lower blood sugar levels.
LEMONGRASS PANDAN TEA is enough to fulfill your daily Vitamin C requirement. Lemongrass and Pandan are known kidney detoxifiers.
And if you are looking for a drink that has a wide range of vitamins and minerals? The MORINGA DALANDAN TEA contains high doses of Vitamin C, calcium and iron. Plus, it can help flush out toxins that accumulate in the liver over time because of excess consumption of alcohol and coffee.
