    Seven Surprising Health Benefits of Coffee

    Seven Surprising Health Benefits of Coffee

    by Alex Brecher October 21, 2022

    Millions of Americans depend on coffee. It wakes them up to start the day, lets them get to work and through the morning, and helps them through the early afternoon slump. It is reliable, tasty, and comforting. 

    If you know that you depend on coffee for energy and routine, you may feel a bit guilty about your coffee habit. But what if coffee were healthy? You wouldn’t feel so guilty then, would you? Well, it turns out that coffee is healthy in many ways. Here are 7 surprising benefits of coffee.

  • It can help with weight loss.
  • When you drink caffeinated coffee and your heart rate climbs, you’re not justfeeling more energized. You’re burning more calories, too. That means it’s easier to lose weight, but that’s not all. When you feel more energetic, you may be more likely to be more active, and that burns calories, too.

  • Coffee is good for your skin.
  • Here’s a fun benefit: coffee may help you get that glowing skin you’re after! It doesn’t even take extra coffee - just keep your used grinds. Then apply them to your skin for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • It can reduce circles under the eyes.
  • Mix coffee grinds with coconut oil, and put the mixture under your eyes. Leave it on for up to 10 minutes, and see if the circles are less dark! You can get better results if you try this for several days in a row, and get more sleep during this period.

  • It’s good for your brain.
  • Caffeine helps improve concentration and memory immediately, but that’s not all. Research shows that people who drink coffee regularly tend to have a lower risk for degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

  • It has antioxidants.
  • Coffee is a natural source of plant-based compounds, or phytochemicals. They’re known for their potential health benefits. Compounds in coffee include polyphenols and antioxidants, which can fight cellular damage from oxidative and harmful chemicals.

  • It’s anti-inflammatory.
  • Chronic inflammation is to blame for increasing the risk of developing many chronic conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. Some of the natural compounds in coffee are anti-inflammatory, which means they may reduce levels of harmful inflammation in your body.

  • It’s clean.
  • What you don’t put in your body can be just as important for health as what you do put into your body. Synthetic pesticides and herbicides can be harmful to health, not to mention ecosystems and communities. If you purchase a brand of coffee that’s certified organic, such as Alex’s Low Acid Organic Coffee, you can be sure that the USDA has checked to make sure that the coffee, and the soil it’s grown in, is free from a list of hundreds of synthetic chemicals.

    As if you needed more reasons to drink coffee, there are many. It’s not just reliable and energizing, but also healthy. Alex’s Low Acid Organic Coffee comes in nutrient-rich and delicious blends that are certified organic, and you can get them in Regular, Half Caff, and Decaf versions in your choice of Whole Bean or Ground.
