Organic Coffee Is Good, Hang On Its Great for Us and Our Planet
The Big Q: What is so Great About Coffee?
The Big As: Just like other plant-based foods, coffee has its own unique set of phytonutrients and beneficial compounds that can positively impact your health, such as those already known to fight inflammation, one of the most common and insidious contributors to age-related health challenges.
One thing many people are not aware of is that dark roast coffee, as opposed to light or medium roast coffees, may be more effective at reducing body weight, in restoring red blood cell vitamin E and glutathione concentrations.
HealthLine notes several other valuable health benefits you can get from that good-morning brew, which Statistic Brain says is enjoyed by 54% of the American population, which would be a cool 100-M.
Coffee is said to improve energy levels and block an inhibitory neurotransmitter called adenosine. This in turn boosts other neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine and dopamine, leading to enhanced firing of neurons. With it our brain function is improved, along with memory and general cognitive function.
Coffee can help you burn fat because it boosts your metabolism and drastically improves physical performance, not just in increased adrenaline for sharper “fight or flight” skills, or agility and stamina during exercise, but because it breaks down body fat and turns it into fuel.
As studies have it, drinking coffee may lower our risk of Type 2 diabetes, which affects about 300-M people globally, as well as your risk of developing Parkinson’s disease by as much as 60%.
Additionally, coffee contains phytonutrients that enhance our health in several different ways, including providing healthy amounts of riboflavin, pantothenic acid, potassium, magnesium, manganese and niacin in every cup.
Having 4 or more cups of coffee a day may also help you fight depression, improve your liver health and lower your risk of several types of cancer, as well as the possibility of heart disease and stroke. It may also supply more antioxidants than anything else in the standard Western diet.
If you are 1 of the millions of us who love the little jolt they get from caffeine, which may translate at least to some degree to weight loss due to increased energy expenditure, you may want to take a look at MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil added to your coffee, which offers a kick of much-desired fat-burning capability.
Here is how to make fat-burning Keto coffee
Place 1 tablespoon of MCT oil in a small food processor. Add 1 tablespoon of raw, grass fed butter and pour in 1 cup of Organic, shade-grown coffee.
Process for 20 to 30 secs, and pour your pleasantly creamy, tasty coffee back into your mug, drink and savor it, knowing how really good it is for you.
Finally, be aware that conventionally grown coffee is 1 of the most chemically contaminated foods in the world.
By 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 much better for our planet.
Additionally, 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, such as birds and lizards, while the pests flourish, resulting in additional pesticide use.
For both your health and the environment, Organic, shade-grown coffee is far preferable to conventionally grown varieties. I get mine from Javista Organic Coffee in Hollywood, California, USA
Always drink Organic coffee, do not add sugar, artificial sweeteners, and creamers.
Eat healthy, Be healthy, Live lively
