Coffee Pleasures

I gave coffee up when I got COVID leading up to Christmas 2021, been tempted to indulge since, I do miss the social aspect , and the little rush. Drinking Chaga tea mainly now helps my immunity goals stay charged up. My water business Natures Energy Water Corporation makes a cold brew coffee with maple and birch water right from our trees, it's like drinking desert, it's truly amazing, delightful, Simply Delicious, have a couple omega 3 eggs on the side and you have felt like you had a quick trip to heaven, with the knowledge that you probably get to stay on Earth a little longer.

    As we approach the new year, health and wellness (and coffee!) are top of mind. After all, good health is paramount to a good life, and good coffee—at least in our opinion—is essential for happiness. Lucky for us, the two go hand-in-hand. Coffee has proven to offer countless health benefits, backed by science. So, as we welcome 2023, we’re exploring the multitude of ways coffee can help us meet (and exceed!) our health and wellness goals. Let’s start the new year sipping our favourite beverage—which will help us feel our best, and fuel us for success. 

    The OG superfood

    Some experts have even gone so far as to dub coffee as “the original superfood.” Although coffee has long been touted for its energy-boosting, antioxidant-imparting benefits, the true powers of java have only started coming to light in recent years. 

    In short, we haven’t even scratched the surface on all that coffee has to offer. But what we do know is that consuming the right amounts of it can work wonders on our wellness and overall well being by staving off disease, bolstering brain health and much, much more. We expect additional evidence to materialize about the benefits of coffee in the future, but until then, the case for drinking it regularly is already quite strong.

    The benefits of brewing 

    Coffee comes with an array of health benefits, ranging from reducing the risk of depression to assisting with weight management. We’ve outlined some key reasons why drinking coffee can be good for you.

    • Increases energy levels: Perhaps the most obvious benefit of coffee is its energy-boosting capacity, given that it contains caffeine—which stimulates the central nervous system. When consumed in moderation, coffee can decrease fatigue, thereby increasing overall energy levels and enhancing athletic performance and general motivation.
    • Boosts brain health: Several studies have affirmed that coffee has the capacity to boost our brains, and stave off neurodegenerative disorders (such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease). Research has shown that coffee can curb cognitive decline on the whole.
    • Supports mental health: Beyond our physical health, coffee can support our mental health, too. Data has demonstrated that coffee can help to regulate our emotions, thereby decreasing the risk of developing depression. 
    • Reduces inflammation: Given coffee’s rich antioxidant properties, the beverage can help fight inflammation, and reduce the risk of chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes. Research has also suggested that coffee’s antioxidant content can impact insulin sensitivity. 
    • Improves heart health: Studies have found that those who consume coffee have a lower risk for heart attacks and developing clogged arteries. 
    • Boosts metabolism: In addition to potentially preventing chronic illness, coffee can also boost our metabolisms and assist with weight management. Given that caffeine is a stimulant, it can help activate and energize our digestive systems. 
    • Longevity: Some data suggests that drinking coffee can actually lead to a longer lifespan, mostly based on the benefits outlined above. In sum, those who drink coffee are at a lower risk for developing several life-threatening diseases, including some types of cancer, kidney and liver disease, diabetes and heart disease. 

    Our goals for good health 

    We believe that achieving and maintaining good health should be at the very top of everyone’s new year's resolution list. As evidenced by the countless studies that have come out over the years, drinking coffee is one way to help us reach our wellness goals. 

    Whether you wish to improve your athletic performance, focus on a more balanced diet, support your mental health or promote longevity, drinking good-quality coffee can help you achieve those objectives. 

    The sweet spot of coffee consumption 

    As with all things, coffee is best consumed in moderation. In order to reap the many benefits your cup of joe has to offer, it’s important to pay attention to the amount you’re drinking to avoid any negative side effects, which include increased blood pressure and heart rate, as well as anxiety and insomnia. Too much coffee can also cause stomach irritability and dizziness. 

    Doctors say about 400 milligrams of caffeine—which is approximately equivalent to four cups of brewed coffee—is the safest bet for most healthy adults. Remember, the caffeine content in coffee is highly variable, so it’s important to consider the details of your favourite roast, and act accordingly. 

    It’s also important to be mindful that you could be consuming other sources of caffeine throughout the day (such as chocolate, tea, energy drinks, and medications). As long as you don’t exceed much more than the recommended 400 milligrams of caffeine, though, you should be good to go.

    Simple sipping

    Tackling health and wellness-related goals can be daunting—particularly if you’re feeling far from your prime. The good news is, there are simple things you can do to take action to improve your health, including sipping on some delicious coffee. It’s really as easy—and as enjoyable—as that.
