Why Heart Smart Coffee?
Better coffee for better health
Did you know that as a coffee drinker, you are in a category with 76% of Americans who have the opportunity at their fingertips to get create a better health practice with something they already do? Drink better coffee for better health!
Ordinary coffee, it has been discovered, has just as many antioxidants as green tea. But it hasn’t been promoted as “healthy” before now because of production values – chemicals from pesticides and processing have made a potentially healthy elixir not quite so healthy.
But with the rise in popularity of organic coffee, and now with new super-antioxidant coffee on the market, you can actually get the health benefits you deserve from something that’s already a part of your day.
• Organic coffee is grown and processed without the harmful chemicals of ordinary coffee.
• Fair trade coffee is coffee with a conscience – it’s all about benefitting the grower and the worker, too, as well as yourself. Just like when you support local markets instead of huge conglomerates.
• Super-antioxidant coffee is created from a special roasting process that gives coffee six times the antioxidants of green tea, and three times the antioxidants of red wine. And it doesn’t cost any more than organic coffees already on the market.
Put that all together: an organic, free-trade, super-antioxidant coffee that is good for your health, your pocketbook, and the global economy. Better coffee for better health never looked so good.
The body needs all the antioxidants it can get. Nutritionally aware doctors today say you should get most of your antioxidants from your diet, and that’s where super-antioxidant coffee can help. Not that you should substitute drinking coffee for eating fruits and veggies, but it can be a good addition to it.
Despite all the hype about orange juice, good coffee beats drinking juice, hands down. Yes, orange juice has some good vitamins in it, but it has no fiber (coffee has more fiber than orange juice!), and it causes an insulin flood which can make you obese if you drink it in large quantities. Yet a recent scientific study showed that people who drink six or seven cups of coffee a day were 35% less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes, no matter what their weight.
Price-wise, a cup of organic orange juice costs $.49 to $.75 on average, while a cup of home-brewed, organic, free-trade, coffee costs between $.30 and $.50.
So, stick with coffee. Better coffee for better health. Switch to a super-antioxidant, organic, free-trade coffee for just pennies a cup more than you’re paying now, and feel good about what you’re doing for yourself and others.
