For years, I never thought coffee was healthy. But, now more than 18,000 studies on coffee have revealed America’s favorite beverage is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols. It turns out coffee has antibacterial, anti-obesity and diuretic properties too, making it a virtual superfood in a cup.
And…Coffee has several other compounds that are exceedingly beneficial to metabolism. A 2017 study demonstrated coffee’s positive benefits for metabolic syndrome. Rats fed a mixture of coffee compounds (caffeic acid, trigonelline, and cafestol) experienced improved insulin sensitivity and reduced levels of fat in their liver.
Coffee beans have one special secret weapon – chlorogenic acid, which is the most abundant polyphenol in coffee. Chlorogenic acid, or CGA, is thermogenic, so it instructs your body’s fat cells to burn their fatty acids for fuel. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found CGA to reduce blood sugar fluctuations by 50 percent after just five days.
CGA can stimulate weight loss, boost energy, and slash your risk for diabetes and heart disease. A Norwegian study reported that women who drank high-CGA coffee dropped three times more weight than women who consumed lower CGA brews. The average cuppa Joe contains about 130 milligrams of CGA. Here are 5 ways coffee can help you lose weight:
You may have noticed that I keep mentioning “high chlorogenic acid”. This is a key factor to obtain the study-backed weight loss benefits of coffee. Chlorogenic acid levels depend on where the coffee beans originate and how they’re roasted. Coffee plants grown at high altitudes with extreme climatic conditions (temperature fluctuations, wind, etc.) will produce more polyphenols to protect themselves. Look for beans from Ethiopia, Kenya, Mexico, Colombia, and Brazil, especially in higher elevations.
The only brand of coffee I recommend is Purity Coffee for their commitment to producing the cleanest and healthiest coffee on the planet. It not only contains ideal amounts of chlorogenic acid, but it’s organic and contains the highest level of antioxidants of any coffee beans available on today’s market. And it’s free of molds, pesticides and mycotoxins, so what’s not to love?
If you are a dark roast fan, you may want to dial it down a notch to medium or even light. Once beans are roasted beyond medium, they’ve lost 75 percent of their fat-blasting polyphenols. Also, try to enjoy your coffee sans dairy because it makes polyphenols 28 percent less bioavailable.
This powerful antioxidant free radical scavenger has received a lot of attention in recent years due to its many positive health effects, and more are being discovered daily as research continues. CGA regenerates kidney tissue, binds opioid receptors in the brain and is neuroprotective. And it lowers the risk of certain cancers, including breast and colon cancer as well as protects DNA, fats, and proteins from oxidative damage, protects the liver and intestines from oxidative injury, and slows the progress of chronic hepatitis. If that weren’t enough, it also lowers blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides, fights insomnia, helps you fall asleep faster, and it acts as an antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal.
To additionally kick a sluggish metabolism into gear and enhance the ability of coffee to curb cravings, I recommend adding UNI KEY Health’s Radical Metabolizer. It contains these five powerful ingredients:
This combination of well documented weight loss ingredients will help to re-energize your weight loss efforts, especially when combined with my favorite Purity Coffee.
