When it comes to coffee, there’s so much contradictory research. Some conclude it’s healthy; others make you think twice before you reach towards your coffee cup. So what is it? Is Coffee Healthy?
I love my morning cup of coffee but about a year ago I started really researching whether that morning cup of coffee was helping me or hurting me. What I found was surprising and led me down a path of discovering a healthy cup of coffee that would actually have health benefits instead of harmful effects.
Is Coffee Healthy?
The countless research on coffee shows that there are both benefits and side effects of drinking coffee. Some of the benefits of coffee include:
- Increases energy levels
- Improves metabolic aid to help in weight loss
- Contains essential nutrients Magnesium, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B5, Potassium, etc.
- May help lower the risk of Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and certain kinds of cancer.
Coffee does have its advantages. Just the increase in energy levels is enough to keep us coming back. But that doesn’t mean it’s all good. We drink way too much coffee. And with those extra cups of coffee come with a few side effects. These include:
Increase in Anxiety Levels
The instant energy that coffee gives us, it does so by slowing down the effect of adenosine. Adenosine is a chemical in our brain that is produced when our body is tried. It tells our body it’s time to go to sleep. What’s more, coffee also signals the brain to produce more adrenaline. And so a boost in energy levels.
Too many cups of coffee lead to an imbalance in our body’s chemical and hormone levels. This often leads to anxiety. That’s why people who consume more than three cups of coffee a day often complain of jitters, headaches and extreme nervousness.
Feeling stressed? These DIY bath salts are my favorite way to de-stress.
The reason coffee has become the holy grail of us working moms and stressed out dads is because of its ability to help us stay awake, after just a few hours of sleep at night. But that’s also the problem.
Drinking coffee in the afternoon makes it difficult to fall asleep at night. This, in fact, starts a whole new cycle. We stay up late and then wake up sleepy. So, the first thing we do when we wake up is to brew another fresh cup of strong coffee to help us through the day. Seeing the pattern? It’s hard to break.
Coffee is also known for its laxative effect. Coffee gets your bowels moving by releasing a hormone called gastrin. Gastrin speeds up the colon’s process so that food moves faster through the intestines.
So if you are drinking more than 1000 mg of coffee, you might be experiencing loose stools or diarrhea often. In extreme cases, drinking too much coffee is known to lead to gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD.
What If I Told You There Was a Healthier Brand of Coffee?
What if I told you that one brand of coffee has all the positive effects of your coffee and none of the side effects? And that this brand of coffee has even more healthy effects on your body.
Yes, it’s true.
Some time back I switched over to the healthiest brand of coffee- Organo Coffee. Now when my friends ask me, ‘Is Coffee Healthy?’
My answer is, ‘Mine is!’
Organo Coffee – A Healthier Choice
Organo Coffee is infused with a mushroom extract known as the Ganoderma Luicdem. The Ganoderma mushroom is a superfood in itself. When combined with coffee beans, it counteracts all the side effects of coffee and also adds in its own benefits. These include:
A Boost in the Immune System
We’ve been talking about how drinking a few cups of coffee can lead to both hormonal and chemical imbalance in your body. Organo Coffee doesn’t do that because it contains 100+ vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to keep your body healthy. Thanks to the ganoderma infused in the coffee you are now drinking a superfood that is designed to heal your body instead of creating imbalances inside the body.
Balances Body’s PH Levels
Let’s admit it. We eat too much processed and sugary food. Did you know that processed food has high acidic value? When we eat it, our body’s PH value moves to the acidic side of the scale. Organo Coffee has an alkaline PH. It helps balance the body’s exposure to acidic foods. We all know that people often suffer from the acidic effects of coffee. I could never drink a cup of coffee on an empty stomach or I would get a stomach ache. That was due to the acidity of the coffee. With Organo coffee I can drink a cup anytime, including on an empty stomach, and not suffer any ill effects. This is because it is alkaline, unlike regular coffee.
Organo Coffee has less than half the amount of caffeine than any other coffee brand in the market right now. When you drink less caffeine, your sleep patterns improve. No more lying down in a wakeful trance, trying to get to sleep. With Organo Coffee, you will be able to break the unhealthy sleep cycle. In addition, the Ganoderma in the coffee negates the effects of caffeine in coffee thus eliminating the jitters and icky side effects many people experience from caffeine. There is also a mechanism in the superfood coffee that helps your body naturally come down and sleeep at night. That means that I drink a cup of coffee at bedtime and it HELPS me sleep! Mind blowing right??
Other Benefits of Organo Coffee are:
- Supports Metabolism
- Improves Physical and Mental Health
- Increased nitric acid (Viagra Effect)
- Improves Focus and Recovery
- Improves Blood Sugar Levels
