Caffeinated coffee and tea are the most consumed, socially accepted stimulants in the world, and close to 90% of adults consume caffeine daily. Coffee and tea contain nutrients that may be beneficial or harmful, including caffeine and antioxidants. Dr. Donald Hensrud is an expert in both Nutrition and Preventive Medicine from the Mayo Clinic. Learn about the latest research findings on coffee, then we’ll discuss the value of Dry January.

Your Real Champion® – Cheers! Here’s to Dry January Every Month of the Year!

In recent years, Dry January has become a trend – taking a month to abstain after the holidays that involved socializing with eating and drinking more than usual. Robert and Arielle Ashford have taken the concept a step further. The Volstead by Unity in Manayunk offers mouth-watering menu selections with a great list of zero proof libations. It’s a vibrant restaurant and bar where everyone – whether they identify as in-recovery, pregnant or nursing, sober curious or just want something different can enjoy great flavors, focus on their health and wellness, and still have fun.
