For millions if not billions of people worldwide, coffee is the ideal way to start the day. This has led to some intense scientific scrutiny on this beverage.
We all want to be healthier, and the big question is whether or not coffee is actually good for you.
Every month, a new study comes out, often contradicting the one before it, making it challenging to really know if your morning brew is good or bad for your health.
Luckily, the evidence is pretty overwhelmingly in favor of coffee being good for your health. Here are some of the most common and proven claims of coffee's health benefits.
Caffeine Reduces Appetite
If you brew a cup of Vietnamese coffee using traditional Robusta beans, then you can expect a hit of caffeine almost double what you would get from the equivalent number of Arabica beans.
We all know that too much caffeine can have some adverse effects like making your heart race or giving you jittery hands. But what about a moderate amount like you would find in a typical Vietnamese coffee?
In regular doses like those found in your morning coffee, some studies have found that caffeine can act as an appetite suppressant. That means you are a bit more easily sated in case that's something you're interested in.
Increased Fat Burning
Along with reduced appetite, caffeine can also help you burn off fat faster. We all know that feeling of invigoration from a morning brew, but who knew it could help you get slimmer?
Some studies have found that the stimulating effect that coffee has on your body can increase the rate of fat burning. With Vietnamese Robusta having a higher than average caffeine content, you will feel the fat-burning effects.
Of course, like many claims about coffee's health benefits, this is highly disputed, but we want to believe that an extra cup of coffee in the morning can help to tip the scales in our favor!
High in Antioxidants
It has been proven that coffee is high in antioxidants, which can potentially limit the effects of ageing and reduce general inflammation in your body.
In creating its specialty Vietnamese coffee blends, Belvico has worked to ensure the natural goodness of the coffee bean is preserved.
Only the best coffee cherries are selected from partner farms before they are ‘honey’ processed, which leaves much of the natural membrane intact.
Not only does this process preserve much of the natural goodness of the bean, but it also adds interesting fruity notes to the roasted coffee.
Good for Your Liver
Some studies have found quite positive links between the caffeine found in coffee and a reduction in liver diseases, such as cirrhosis.
When processed by your liver, coffee stimulates the production of a chemical called paraxanthine, which has been shown to limit or even reverse liver scarring. Who knew your morning cup could be so good for you!
