Coffee – the key to turning back the years?
Friday 18 September 2009
It receives an equal amount of positive and negative attention in the media, but the humble cup of coffee might be better for you than you think!
A new study by Nescafe Green Blend has found that the levels of antioxidants in coffee are actually higher than those found in green tea.
What’s more, coffee has also been linked as the, with studies pointing it out as an antidote to heart disease, a cure for bad breath, as well as it’s fated boost in energy and concentration.
There’s also some serious research being undertaken for green coffee, which is a lot like green tea; it’s essentially the same old coffee beans that aren’t roasted or fermented like your standard cuppa.
There’s evidence that the untreated coffee beans are high in polyphenols, which are chemicals linked to anti-ageing and a stronger immune system.
It’s advised that you don’t drink too many cups of coffee in a day though, as the caffeine can be too much for some – for an antioxidant boost without a withdrawal headache, try a cup of decaf.
