#FitnessFacts: COFFEE

December 08, 2013 1 min read

-Individuals who drink coffee on a regular basis are likely to live longer than those who don’t.

-An average cup of black coffee can contain more than 1,000 types of antioxidants! Not only can these slow the aging process, but they can also help prevent heart disease & type-2 diabetes, & even neutralize free radicals that can cause aging & weight gain.

-The caffeine found in coffee raises the metabolic rate and helps to mobilize fatty acids from the fat tissues. It can also enhance physical performance & reduce post workout muscle soreness.

-The brain can actually produce a type of plaque called beta-amyloid- & the caffeine in coffee can prevent it from building up! This is why coffee helps with cognitive function, and can also potentially help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

-Organic whole-bean black coffee is the healthiest type to drink- and the darker the roast, the greater the benefits.

-The healthiest creamers to add to coffee are skim milk, soy/almond/coconut milk, or organic half & half. The healthiest sweeteners are organic cane sugar, organic maple/agave syrup, or organic stevia.

-The most beneficial times to consume coffee are first thing in the morning, 30-60 minutes pre-workout, or post meal.

-Caffeine is still technically a type of drug, & the body can develop a tolerance to it over time. If consumption is skipped the body can go into minor withdrawals and can react with headaches and irritability. To prevent caffeine addiction & other negative side effects, coffee should be limited to no more than 1-3 cups of 8 fl oz per day.
