Are you a coffee addict who is also looking for optimal health?
I understand where you are coming from because I absolutely love coffee and have researched reasons why coffee is the nectar of the gods.
Coffee fuels millions of people every day and is a daily ritual that can mean the difference between a monotone existence or a super-charged, productive life.
What if I told you that there was a way to make coffee even more amazing than what the humble ground bean has to offer? Here are three ways that you can boost the superpower of your coffee.
Collagen is a protein responsible for healthy joints and skin elasticity. As we age, our existing collagen breaks down, and it gets harder for your body to produce more. In recent years, collagen supplements have become popular to help support the collagen within the body.
Many collagen supplements are hydrolyzed, which means the collagen has been broken down, making it easier for you to absorb. Consuming collagen may have a variety of health benefits, from relieving joint pain to improving skin health.
Adding collagen peptide powder to a beverage, such as coffee or a smoothie, is an easy way to help boost the collagen in your body.
According to healthline.com, a study found that women who drank a beverage mixed with a collagen supplement daily for 12 weeks experienced increased skin hydration and a significant reduction in wrinkle depth compared with a control group.
Try adding a scoop of collagen peptide to your coffee in the morning to boost your coffee’s health benefits!
MCT oil is a supplement made from a type of fat called medium-chain triglycerides and is usually made from coconut or palm kernel oil.
It can help your body make ketones, which is an energy source for your brain that doesn’t have carbs. Some say drinking it will make your mind sharper.
According to hvmn.com by simply adding MCT oil to your coffee, you may experience improved satiety, enhanced cognition, weight loss, and a reduced risk of heart disease.
Try adding 2 Tablespoons of MCT oil in your morning brew. It helps control cravings and improves cognitive performance to keep you sharp all day.
Organic Coffee Beans
For coffee snobs (I being one of them), there may be a concern that “organic” means less flavor.
With the recent popularity of organic coffees, many coffee roasters now offer organic varieties of their coffee which rivals some of the most popular blends available.
According to Equal Exchange Fair Trade, conventional coffee is among the most heavily chemically treated foods in the world. It is steeped in synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides.
Organic coffee is grown without synthetic fertilizers or chemicals, which means cleaner beans, air, land, and water.
The coffee is grown with only organic fertilizers, like coffee pulp, chicken manure, or compost. In addition, organic coffee beans are richer in healthful antioxidants.
So, brew up your favorite coffee and try adding some superpower to your morning ritual.
