Brew-tiful Benefits: Coffee, the Elixir of Life (Minus the Moldy Pitfalls)

1. Nootropic Nirvana: Brewed Brilliance for Your Brain

First things first, coffee is a nootropic, which is just a fancy way of saying it turns your brain into a superhero. The caffeine in coffee is like a friendly wake-up call to your neurons, boosting cognitive function and making you the Einstein of your office. It's basically a legal and non-jittery version of superpowers.

2. Neurological No-No to Disorders

Sip, sip, hooray! Turns out your love for coffee might just be protecting your noggin. Studies suggest that the glorious elixir can lower the risk of neurological disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. So, while you're sipping that latte, you're basically giving your brain a self-care package – take that, forgetfulness!

3. Espresso Yourself: Coffee for Endurance and Exercise

Forget the energy drinks that taste like liquid electricity. Coffee is the real MVP for workouts. Caffeine increases adrenaline levels, boosting physical performance and endurance. Think of it as your personal cheerleader, but in a cup – "Go, you! Lift those weights like you're lifting the weight of the world!"

4. Liver Lover: Coffee’s Benefits for Your Second Hardest-Working Organ

Your liver, the unsung hero of your body, deserves some love. Good news – coffee's got your liver's back. It helps protect against liver diseases, like cirrhosis and fatty liver disease. So, your liver can continue being the silent superhero, detoxifying your body without asking for recognition.

5. The Components of Cool: What’s in That Cuppa?

Coffee is more than just a liquid hug for your brain. It's a treasure trove of antioxidants and essential nutrients. From vitamins B2 and B3 to potassium and manganese – coffee is practically a liquid multivitamin. Who needs pills when you can have a latte, right?

Every Coffee Cup can have its Ups and Downs...

However, every coin has two sides and so can your caffeine fix.  Ah, the age-old debate – organic vs. non-organic coffee. It's like choosing between a superhero and a sidekick, right? Right!

Organic coffee is grown without the heavy use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals that can linger on the beans. These chemicals, while effective against pests, can leave behind a residue that not even a triple shot of espresso can wash away. Enter organic coffee – the superhero that says, "Nope, not on my watch."

Without the pesticide parade, organic coffee beans can focus on their true calling – delivering a pure, unadulterated coffee flavour and nootropic burst without the unwanted baggage of chemical residues. Organic coffee is often grown in nutrient-rich soils, thanks to the use of organic fertilisers and sustainable farming practices. Think of it as the coffee plants doing yoga in a lush, organic garden. These nutrient-packed soils result in healthier, more robust coffee plants that are better equipped to fend off diseases, including the dreaded mould. 

In addition, many organic coffee farms embrace shade-grown cultivation, where coffee plants coexist with tall trees and lush vegetation. This natural ecosystem acts as a shield against the harsh elements, providing a more stable and controlled environment for coffee growth. In this shaded haven, mould struggles to find a foothold, making your beans less likely to succumb to its fuzzy embrace.

Organic coffee often follows a more direct route from farm to cup, bypassing the lengthy storage periods that can plague mass-produced non-organic varieties. Less time on the shelf means fewer opportunities for mould to stage a takeover. It's the coffee equivalent of a red carpet entrance – swift, glamorous, and free from the clutches of mouldy drama.

The Mocha Menace.

Hold on to your berets, coffee aficionados. While Starbucks and Costa might be convenient, the sad truth is that their beans might not be as fresh and fabulous as you think, often leaving you jittery and anxiety riddled. Mass production and prolonged storage can lead to a decline in the coffee's quality, and potentially, an unwanted mould invasion. A study was published in 2020 which compared the antioxidant efficacy of conventional versus organic coffee, exploring how the growing, farming and processing practices of coffee can be detrimental to its nootropic benefits: The Antioxidant Content of Coffee and Its In Vitro Activity as an Effect of Its Production Method and Roasting and Brewing Time - PMC (nih.gov)

In conclusion, exploring local coffee shops with freshly roasted, organic beans is a safer bet, or simply making your own organic coffee concoction, pimped with our MCT Oil, Collagen and Keto Creamer safer still.

To Starbucks or Pret?

In the event that you’re nowhere near a boujee independent coffee house,  Pret is a great option for a coffee on the fly. Pret stands out in its commitment to sustainably sourced beans, and emphasises the importance of its ethical sourcing, fair wages for farmers and environmentally friendly practices. Additionally, Pret often prioritises organic and single-origin coffees, promoting a more unique and flavourful experience compared to Starbucks' broader offerings.

The Elixir of Life

So, there you have it, the frothy, and downright fabulous lowdown on coffee's health benefits and what to be mindful of the next you put the kettle on.  The next time someone tells you to cut back on your java joy, just tell them you're on a one-way ticket to Nootropic Nirvana with your trusty mug in hand! Cheers to the elixir of life – one sip at a time!
