Important, Choose Organic Shade-Grown Coffee
Conventionally grown coffee is one of the most chemically contaminated foods in the world.
In contrast, Organic coffee contains no chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. The beans have a richer flavor and come with natural antioxidants.
It is healthy for us, more sustainable for the farms that grow it and better for our Planet.
Coffee is a shade-loving plant, but growers often strip forests to make growing and harvesting easier. This destroys the ecological habitat of many natural pest deterrents, while the pests flourish, resulting in additional pesticide use.
The downward spiral to the environment involves chemical run-off, erosion and potentially contaminated water supplies.
Organic Coffee is good for us: in a recent study, Coffee was 1 of the 24 substances that increased NMNAT2 formation to effectively inhibit neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia.
Knowing this information is helping scientists create drugs to increase levels of the NMNAT2 enzyme for the purposes of combating dementia, Coffee has been identified as having other substances that are useful.
A number of studies indicate that Coffee offers benefits in cancer prevention and treatment.
One study showed that drinking 3 or cups of Coffee daily lowered the risk of colon cancer recurrence or death by 52%.
A meta-analysis on Coffee and cancer risk published in Y 2016 concluded with the follwoing statement:
“Our study demonstrates that coffee intake can reduce the risk of oral, pharynx cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer and melanoma by 31 percent, 13 percent, 54 percent, 11 percent, 27 percent and 11 percent respectively for the highest versus lowest coffee intake.
Furthermore, coffee intake could reduce the risk of liver cancer, prostate cancer and endometrial cancer by 27 percent, 3 percent and 12 percent with an increment of 2 cups of coffee intake.”
In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) reversed its longtime position that Coffee may cause cancer, and the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reported that coffee consumption may actually help reduce chronic disease.1
Another study reported that drinking at least 5 cups of Coffee a day reduces the risk of some brain cancers by as much as 40%.
A Y 2009 study showed that Coffee increases the growth of beneficial gut bacteria called Bifidobacterium.
Other diseases and conditions caffeine has been shown in clinical studies to positively impact include the following:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Parkinson’s disease
- Liver, prostate, kidney and colorectal cancers
- Heart rhythm problems
- Beneficial gut bacteria
Organic shade-grown Coffee is available at numerous retail markets, and you can also order it online.
