It’s no secret that people love their coffee! In fact, 64% of American adults are coffee drinkers according to a recent study from the National Coffee Association. And, as people spend more time at home these days thinking about wellness, it’s no surprise that they are looking for healthy coffee options that do more than provide their daily dose of caffeine.
Now, there are some simple things anyone can do to make their favorite coffee drink a bit “healthier” than normal. This includes swapping out traditionally flavored creamers for non-dairy versions with natural flavors or other natural flavor boosters like coconut oil, cinnamon, and lavender essence. But, did you know that coffee on its own has some pretty amazing health benefits, including enhancing energy levels and potentially helping the body to burn fat. And, it’s a source of several antioxidants – which is great news for coffee drinkers everywhere!
So let’s dig deeper into antioxidants to understand why they make coffee a healthy addition to your daily routine. Plus, when you choose premium, infused organic coffee you can get even more wellness benefits through carefully selected plant-based ingredients.
What Are Antioxidants?
Chances are that you have heard the term “antioxidants”, but you may not really know what these are. To put it into simple terms, Healthline describes antioxidants as molecules that fight free radicals in your body. Free radicals are compounds that become harmful at high levels and can contribute to multiple illnesses. While the human body has its own system of antioxidants to help combat free radicals, you can get a boost from whole foods such as berries, kale, spinach, and pecans.
You can also get a healthy dose of antioxidants from coffee! In fact, studies have shown it to have more antioxidants than other beverages, such as green tea, black tea, and red wine! And, because coffee is so popular in America, it is the biggest dietary source of antioxidants in the country. This means that you are actually giving your body’s natural system a free radical-fighting boost with every cup.
Whole foods like nut, berries, and vegetables are a great source of antioxidants, as are coffee, dark chocolate, and fatty fish like salmon.
Organic Coffee = More Antioxidants
Now we know that coffee has some amazing benefits in addition to waking you up in the morning or getting you through your afternoon slump. But not all coffee is created equal. It’s important to select high-quality coffee to ensure that you aren’t making trade-offs when it comes to your health and wellness.
In our article, Don’t Panic, It’s Organic: The Perks of Organic Coffee, we explored the benefits of selecting organic foods and why choosing organic coffee is so important. Here, we noted that coffee is one of the most heavily chemically-treated crops in the world, with these chemicals posing health risks to not just you, but also to the farmers and their local communities.
When you choose blends made with organic coffee, you are making a better choice for yourself as well as coffee farmers and their neighbors. You are also likely to get a richer, smoother flavor from the higher quality beans. And, organic coffee beans are actually higher in antioxidants than non-organic ones!
