I am not a massive coffee drinker but I always like a yummy coffee mid-morning! I get a lot of questions about the coffee I drink in particular and why it is so good, but did you know coffee in general has a ton of health benefits too? I urge you to do your own research of course (I suggest an article by healthline about coffee being good or bad), the internet is wide and you can find out some of the benefits you will find from coffee.
Some of the benefits of Coffee in general:
- High in antioxidants.
- Can be linked to a reduction in diseases.
- Contains essential nutrients.
- May protect your brain health.
What about caffeine?
Caffeine can have some effects on certain people but my first reaction, after learning how decaffeinated coffee is made (think lots of chemicals and waaaaaay less benefits), is that the individual will know firstly whether they can tolerate, or secondly whether they have a medical issue in which case they should always consult a medical clinician.
Why I love my coffee!
My Coffee has Green Coffee Beans, which are rich in antioxidants which we all know are good for our body. Antioxidants can help to reduce the effects of free radicals (free radicals often play a major role in disease formation) which are damaged cells. Green Coffee Beans also contain chlorogenic acid, which can help reduce food cravings and boost your metabolism. Yes your cup of coffee could help you lose weight!
An ingredient people often can’t get their head round is the Grass fed butter, but did you know that butter from grass fed cows is high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids and is considered one of the healthiest fats on the planet? Yes, you might not have been sold the truth on butter all these years. If you don’t have grass fed butter in your diet then you definitely might want to do some research as to why this fat might have a place in your diet. As always, if you have a medical condition or food allergy please consult a clinician. As well as essential Fatty Acids you will also find soluable vitamins too. “But what about heart disease” I hear you say – well guess what? A number of high profile studies have shown that there are no links between these fats and heart disease.
MCT Oil means Medium Chain Triglycerides and is a fatty acids that comes with a whole host of health benefits, including improved cognitive function, supports gut health, is anti-inflammatory, helps you to maintain a healthy weight, balances your hormone levels and absorbs fat soluble nutrients.
Don’t just listen to me, do your own research, there is so much out there if you are willing to look! Fat free, Sugar Free, Low Fat, Low Sugar….all things we’re told is the healthy way to go, but when you really look into the ingredients in these items you will find it packed with artificial chemicals, sweeteners and nasty fillers. You should be careful with your sugar intake but I urge you to look at what artificial sweeteners can do to your health, but as for healthy fats, you don’t need to fear them.
Don’t take my word for it though, do your own research, make yourself aware and if you want some tips on where to look I will be happy to provide them. Bet you will look at a cup of coffee differently in future!
