In this video, we’re going to talk about some of the health benefits of drinking coffee. Remember, don’t drink coffee if it gives you anxiety, increases your heart rate, or prevents you from sleeping. Too much coffee can increase cortisol and adrenaline, so limit your daily coffee intake to one cup.

Caffeine is a phytochemical found in coffee and other plants. Caffeine keeps us awake by inhibiting a compound called adenosine. Coffee can give you mental acuity, help you focus, and improve your ability to learn. It speeds up the rate of metabolism and helps regulate blood sugar, especially if you add MCT oil or butter.

Research has shown that coffee may even help decrease your risk of dementia! Here are some of the other potential health benefits of coffee:
• Decreases symptoms related to Parkinson's and Alzheimer's
• Decreases risk of gallstones
• Increases the production and flow of bile
• Prevents kidney stones
• Has anti-cancer properties
• Has anti-inflammatory properties
• Has hepatoprotective properties
• Contains polyphenols to feed your microbiome
• Can help improve postural hypotension
• Improves exercise performance
• Increases cardiac output
• Delays muscle soreness
• Decreases symptoms experienced at high altitudes
• Increases mitochondrial biogenesis
• Increases stomach acid

    I LOVE coffee but I recently gave it up after drinking it for over 45 years. I started going to a naturopath and found I have a congested liver. One of the symptoms was belching and some pain. I’m detoxing and feel much better. I noticed I would start belching and feel bloated much of the time after consuming certain things. Coffee was one of them. I stopped drinking coffee and within a day the belching and bloated feeling went away. After 4 days I tried a cup of coffee in the morning as an experiment and 10 minutes after drinking it I started belching again. My naturopath thinks it may be the chemicals used in the growing and processing of coffee so I am going to buy some organic coffee and see if that affects me or not. I hope going organic works because I would hate to go without coffee for the rest of my life.

      Love to hear the results. I’m going through the same process. I have organic decaf, noticed the milk caused Bloating so switched to coconut milk…it’s better. I’m also slowly moving to all decaf…thinking the caffeine may be an issue and I know the caffeine messes up my sleep even at 1 weak cup at 1 pm.

      @@amyroessing4388 …. I have low stomach acid and have to take a supplement to increase my acid. Otherwise I get acid reflux. It sounds counter-intuitive but it works. You need enough acid in your stomach to activate the valve at the top that keeps acid from flowing up and out of your stomach. Dr. Berg did a video about it.

    My story. Was drinking 3-4 cups every morning and then hitting the gym. Past year had bad knee joint pain. As last resort quit coffee cold turkey. After 2 weeks all pain went away as well the joint inflammation. I believe I developed cortisol resistance from coffee and exercise. Reset it by quitting coffee. But coffee is awesome in the morning so back to 1-2 cups, so far so good.

    Coffee is great for your liver and kidneys! Of course you don’t want to add a lot of sugars because that sort of negates the positive properties…

    But there are so many positive aspects of coffee!

    Ironically The Europeans have figured out that coffee must be had before noon… That having coffee after lunch time because of your body rhythms does not give you the host of benefits it does in the morning.
