    Five Reasons to Switch to Alex's Acid Free Coffee

    Five Reasons to Switch to Alex's Acid Free Coffee

    by Alex Brecher August 25, 2022

    Many people depend on coffee for a regular pick-me-up and a comforting ritual, but what if your coffee is causing you problems? Coffee is an acidic beverage. Too much acid can lead to a variety of issues from your mouth through your gastrointestinal tract.

    Many people don’t notice any problems with acidic foods and beverages, but if your coffee has been bothering you recently, you might want to think about limiting your acid consumption. That doesn’t mean giving up great-tasting coffee, though. Here are five reasons to switch to Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee.

  • It reduces acid erosion on your teeth.
  • Your teeth are covered by an outer layer called enamel. Enamel is pretty and shiny, but there’s more. It’s also important for healthy teeth. Having acid on your teeth for long periods of time can wear away at enamel in a process called acid erosion. The result can be an increase in tooth decay. 

    A reason why you might have acid on your teeth is if you often consume highly acidic foods and beverages, like coffee. Since it’s liquid, coffee, and the acid in coffee, can get over all of the surfaces of your teeth and wear away enamel. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee has a lower acid content than many other coffee brands.

  • It reduces heartburn.
  • If you have heartburn, you’re familiar with the burning, painful sensation that can be in your chest after you eat or drink certain foods or beverages. Heartburn is a symptom of acid reflux, which is when stomach acid comes up into your esophagus and irritates the lining of your esophagus. 

    Many people link heartburn to high-acid foods and beverages, and they often report that coffee is a trigger for heartburn. If you are one of those people, or if your doctor has told you to lower acid in your diet, Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee may be for you. 

  • It’s organic.
  • Food and beverage claims are often meaningless, but that’s definitely not the case when it comes to being certified organic. The National Organic Program is overseen by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), and it involves strict standards from growing to packaging the product. 

    Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is certified organic, and that means a lot. It’s free from a long list of artificial and potentially harmful chemicals used as pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. That can be healthy not only for you, but also for the environment.

  • It reduces bloating.
  • If you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you may be careful with what you eat because of fears of gastrointestinal symptoms like an upset stomach or bloating. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee has less acid and is less likely to irritate the lining of the stomach.

  • It tastes good.
  • The coffee beans in Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee are from famous coffee growing regions. Half of our beans are from the Chiapas region of Mexico, while the other half of the blend includes coffee beans from Honduras and Nicaragua. They’re roasted to a medium dark French roast, and have flavors of chocolate, nuts, citrus, and vanilla. With less acid, Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is also mellower and less sour or bitter.

    If you’re ready to take your coffee experience to the next level without having side effects from so much acid, it may be time to try Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee. It’s available in Ground and Whole Bean versions, and in Regular, Decaf, Half Caff. Give it a try and we are sure you will love it!
