Podcast 026: Coffee Has Many Health Benefits

Pure coffee has many health benefits.  The benefits of coffee are also increased by the nutrients and their affect at decreasing the negative effects of caffeine. The positive phytochemicals that are found in coffee are:

  • Chlorogenic acid
  • Quinic acid
  • Cafestol and kahweol
  • NMB- N-methylpyridinium
  • B vitamins

The benefits of coffee come from small amounts each day of organic, pure coffee.  Coffee should not be a means of taking in more sugar and dairy.  It is also not beneficial for the following people:

·      High levels of stress that use the caffeine to stimulate the adrenals and cortisol levels

·      Electrolyte imbalances because this would be affected by the diuretic effect of coffee

·      Sensitive to coffee

There is now a lot of research that shows the benefits of coffee.  It protects the brain and shows a decrease in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. It also shows a decrease in Type 2 Diabetes.  Also, because of its antioxidant effects, it shows a decrease in certain cancers. 

We recommend that you drink 1 cup of coffee a day of organic, dark roasted coffee from a glass or ceramic travel mug.

Remember to be kind to others, take care of yourself and make good choices.
