• Protects Liver
• Vitamins B2, B3 &B5
1. Coffee contains antioxidants
Antioxidants help remove free radicals before they can damage cells in your body, and cause disease. Coffee contains antioxidants that, among other things, can help protect against several different types of cancer, including breast cancer, prostate cancer and liver cancer. One study found an association between drinking 3 cups of coffee a day and a 30 percent lower risk of liver cancer in both men and women. Other studies have linked moderate consumption to a reduced risk of bladder and colorectal cancers. The stronger the blend, the better.
2. Coffee Protects my liver
Research has shown that coffee protects against both liver cancer and cirrhosis, which is essentially scarring of your liver. A recent study published in journal Hepatology reports that habitual coffee consumption reduces risk of death from liver disease by 50%. Coffee also raises levels of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), a protein that promotes new liver cell growth and regeneration.
3. Coffee contains vitamins B2, B3 and B5
Our brain needs a steady stream of oxygen and nutrients in order to function properly. B vitamins play an important role in energy metabolism, meaning they help our brains convert carbohydrates into usable energy. Antioxidants are responsible for reducing inflammation, fighting cancer and heart disease, and protecting our cells from free radical damage.
4. Coffee contains manganese, potassium and magnesium
Manganese, potassium and magnesium are all essential nutrients that help to lower blood pressure, boost immune function and keep our bones strong. Most adults should aim for around 400mg of manganese per day, 500mg of potassium per day and 500mg of magnesium per day. Coffee contains all three! If you aren’t drinking enough coffee to reach these recommended daily doses, consider adding a squeeze of lemon juice to your cup – it also contains manganese.
5. Coffee breaks down body fat
Coffee contains caffeine, which stimulates your nervous system, sending signals to fat cells to break down body fat. Caffeine also increases Dopamine, leading to enhanced brain activity and energy levels! And if you’re drinking freshly brewed coffee (like you should be), it contains Antioxidants, Vitamins B2, B3 and B5. Coffee is a fantastic source of Manganese,Potassium & Magnesium too!
6. Coffee enhances energy levels
Coffee stimulates our nervous system, leading to increased energy levels. This is particularly helpful for people with low blood sugar or who find it difficult to wake up in the morning. Coffee promotes alertness: Caffeine makes us more alert and aware. If you want to get more done at work or study effectively, a cup of coffee might be just what you need! Coffee boosts concentration: The caffeine in your morning cup of Joe keeps you focused on your work and studies.
Our coffee is freshly brewed in New Zealand
A new study suggests that organic coffee, like freshly brewed ground beans, contains higher levels of antioxidants than their conventional counterparts. Espresso coffees had even higher levels of antioxidants than other brews. The problem with most store-bought coffee is that it has been roasted for too long or at too high a temperature, making them more acidic and less healthy for you. A just right roast gives your grounds maximum flavor without being overly roasted. We take great care in ensuring a perfectly Fresh Roasted Coffee, from our brewery to your door.
