Why Choose Organic Coffee Beans?
Coffee is one of the world’s most popular beverages, with over 12 billion pounds produced annually worldwide. Because of coffee’s soaring demand, the farming methods developed over time to maximize efficiency have sometimes been at the expense of human and environmental health.
Certified organic coffee means that the grower takes care to ensure that the both the beans and soil are chemical and fertilizer-free.
Anyone who has tried it can attest that the flavor of your morning cup of coffee is improved when you go organic, but that’s just the beginning…
To keep costs low, some non-organic coffee growers clear-cut rain forests to create full-sun coffee plantations that seriously damage the environment. Many of these coffee plantations will use chemical fertilizers to feed the plant, and pesticides to keep the pests away because along with deforestation, the nutrient-dense soil and natural predators of coffee pests are gone, too. Choosing to purchase organic coffee helps to lessen this environmental damage.
Consuming coffee has many proven health benefits, but you won’t get any of those benefits with over-processed instant coffee. Here are six benefits of coffee you may not have known:
Better Overall Mood
Coffee is a mood enhancer, and drinking a cup of coffee at the start of the day could lessen your stress. Coffee is also shown to decrease depression. A study shows that women who drink two to three cups per day are 15% less likely to develop depression, and women who drink four cups per day are 20% less likely to develop it.
Increased Fiber Intake
Our body requires fiber for proper digestion, and we need 21 to 38 grams of fiber every day. We don’t get that amount of fiber every day. But fortunately, those who drink coffee multiple times a day can fulfill their fiber-related requirements quite easily, as one cup of coffee contains 1.5 to 1.8 grams of soluble dietary fiber. Drinking multiple cups of coffee will provide you with additional fiber without you even realizing it.
Coffee contains caffeine, which helps improve the metabolism by stimulating the nervous system. If taken before a workout session, coffee will boost energy levels during exercise and also improve endurance.
A headache or a migraine is one of the most common medical problems from which people suffer. Coffee can prove to be extremely effective for those suffering from headaches because coffee contains caffeine, which consists of vasoconstrictive properties. These properties help narrow the blood vessels and restrict the flow of blood, thus resulting in relief from headaches.
High in Antioxidants
Antioxidants are known to improve your immune system and overall health. Coffee is the biggest dietary source of antioxidants. While foods such as berries contain the highest amount of antioxidants per serving, most people don’t eat enough berries to hit daily antioxidant requirements. However, they do drink high enough coffee in general to hit the recommended antioxidant intake.
Improved Cognitive Function
With regular consumption of coffee, you will see a huge change in cognitive function. A regular intake of caffeine is going to increase your focus, alertness, and concentration, especially during arduous tasks.
