The Health Benefits of Coffee
Get ready for some brew-tastic news!
Did you know coffee is FULL of health benefits and actually really great to drink daily? It’s true!
However, as with all good things, there are limits. Drinking a few cups of joe a day can give you a wonderful health boost, but too much coffee and you’re suddenly in a danger zone!
Additionally, it’s important to note that black coffee is the drink of choice to achieve the health benefits we are about to discuss. Coffee full of cream, sugar and/or artificial flavors and sweeteners quickly turn from healthy to very unhealthy and are not considered in the same category as health-boosting coffee!
Sorry to all you pumpkin spiced latte lovers!
The Health Benefits of Coffee
Drinking 1-2 cups a day of coffee can reduce your risk of heart attack, increase alertness (obviously), reduce the risk of liver disease by as much as 50%, reduce the risk of Parkinson’s Disease, and help protect against the development of Type 2 Diabetes!
Coffee is also a great source of antioxidants and one study even suggests that most of us get more of our daily antioxidants from our morning coffee than any other single food source!
Beware of Too Much Coffee
Predictably, too much coffee (more than 2 cups) comes with a long list of side effects, including:
- Mood Swings
- Insomnia/fitful sleep
- Cardiac Arrhythmia
When feeling these symptoms you should stop drinking coffee and other caffeinated beverages immediately. Note it will take about 4 hours (sometimes more depending on your sensitivity) for these symptoms to subside after a coffee overdose.
What about green coffee?
Have you heard the term green coffee recently and are unsure of what it is?
Green coffee actually isn’t a drink at all. It refers to raw, un-roasted coffee beans which as you can guess, are green… and as it turns out, even better for you than roasted coffee beans!
Researchers have recently discovered that green coffee beans contain a large amount of Chlorogenic Acid (aka CGA). CGA a natural compound that your body uses to help cells intake insulin, thus increasing their ability to convert sugar into energy and preventing it from being stored as fat by your body. CGA has also been shown to decrease blood pressure, and improved cardiovascular function, just as brewed coffee can.
So basically green coffee equals health benefits, extra energy and weight loss. So why isn’t everyone drinking it?
Well, roasting coffee beans cooks the CGA out of the bean, thus reducing most of the benefits of CGA in brewed coffee. In order to get the benefits, raw beans need to be consumed, which is just not safe or palatable as you would have to consume over a pound a day to get enough CGA.
Of course, science always has an answer: supplements! A reputable company like Green Coffee Thin has found a way to safely and effectively extract the CGA from green coffee. The result is an amazingly effective bioavailable CGA supplement that contains 50% of the powerful main ingredient, which is far more than many off-brands and weaker supplements!
To experience the benefits of CGA for yourself, you can now go to Green Coffee Thin’s website and use code: COF15 to receive 15% off of your order!
Imagine all of the health benefits of coffee, without the risk of any side effects from too much caffeine, with the added benefit of weight loss… all in an easy daily supplement. Once again, coffee is simply amazing… roasted or “green”!
