Is Coffee Good for You?

Is coffee good for you and your health?
Coffee is the most widely consumed beverage on the planet. Because it’s so ingrained in our every day routine, it makes sense to explore the health benefits of your average cup of Joe. It turns out that like so many other products on the market, coffee has both good and bad effects on our body. For a quick preview, coffee’s biggest positive lies in its antioxidants, and its biggest negative is obviously the large amount of caffeine present in the beverage. Read on to see what you think!

So Is Coffee Good for You? Here's the Positives:

  • Coffee contains antioxidants, which is a naturally occurring chemical that fights the damaging effects of oxygen on the body. Coffee has these antioxidants because it is actually the seed of the coffee plant, which sprouts fruit similar to cherries. Fruits in general are overloaded with antioxidants, which is one of the many reasons they’re so healthy to consume. Because coffee beans are the core of actual fruits, it makes sense why they’re so overloaded with these awesome molecules.
  • Moderate coffee drinking may lead to less risk of a variety of diseases like Parkinson’s disease, Type-2 diabetes, liver disease, and possibly heart disease. It’s true; coffee increases circulation and can help out the liver as well as increase blood flow to the brain.
  • Because of this increased blood flow, it can make you smarter. The caffeine in coffee is a stimulant, and quicker brain function happens because of this sudden caffeine overload. Your brain highways open up, and dopamine gets released, which puts you in a good mood.
  • Coffee increases your metabolism, which leads to the oxidization of fatty acids. In other words, it helps with dieting.
  • Coffee can actually lower the risk of dementia by 60%.
  • There are Some Negatives Too

  • The biggest negative is clearly the caffeine. We can become addicted to it. This overload of caffeine will burn out your adrenal glands, which is not good for people with auto-immune disorders, thyroid issues, or adrenal fatigue.
  • Before we say anymore, we should stress that it really depends on your body. If you’re looking for a little bit of a pick me up, drinking coffee is completely fine. But if you slowly start to need more and more cups of coffee every day, that’s a bad spiral to get into.

    Here’s one last piece of advice for people who drink coffee:

    When buying coffee, if you really care about health over everything, buy organic! Coffee is one of the most highly sprayed plants in the entire world. Now, most of the coffee clubs we review source single-origin coffee, which is higher quality, and makes for a more natural bean, but if you really want to be sure, buy organic coffee beans.

    Luckily, one of the coffee clubs we reviewed is a stickler for organic coffee, and that’s Flavorbean. There are absolutely NO chemical solvents in Flavorbeans coffee, and that’s because they value the quality of the finished product over everything.

    Flavorbean isn’t the only club that offers some variety of organic coffee. Take a look at some of the other clubs we reviewed to find other great organic and all-natural coffee!
