A rich tasting gourmet cup of coffee can be a critical part of the morning routine for so many reasons. That’s because today’s ‘Always-On Culture’ doesn’t just skyrocket our stress and inflammation - it tanks our energy, crashes our mood and even impacts our immune health leaving us not feeling or looking our best. From tight schedules and lack of sleep to never-ending demands and obligations, a simple cup of coffee can be just what the doctor ordered to get the body and mind back on track. What can make the morning ritual even better? Adding additional health benefits to your morning cup of joe like turmeric…
…and Cloud 9 Life did just that with Higher Ground Medium Roast Micro Ground Coffee with Turmeric.
The benefits of turmeric and coffee are both well established. Particularly in India and other parts of Asia, turmeric has a long and fruitful history of both therapeutic and superficial use. Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice, and it has powerful medical properties that can help the body fight foreign invaders and also has a role in supporting inflammation.
Higher Ground Coffee is infused with turmeric, antioxidants and over 1,000 health-boosting compounds to deliver a full assortment of incredible health benefits - such as a stronger immune system, reduced inflammation, elevated mood and recent studies even suggest that drinking several cups of coffee each day can help curb waistlines. That is why when the turmeric latte trend buzz in the coffee scene arose, everybody got interested in these two superfoods together.
Turmeric might be at the forefront of the health food industry, but coffee isn’t too far behind. Beyond conventional fears of the high caffeine content in coffee, whole or fresh-ground coffee beans are absolutely loaded with antioxidants and health-supporting compounds.
What health benefits does coffee offer?
Though researchers don't always know exactly which of coffee's ingredients are responsible for producing their studies' health-boosting results, there's evidence that drinking coffee may help do the following:
Improve overall health.
An analysis of nearly 220 studies on coffee, published in the BMJ in 2017, found that coffee drinkers may enjoy more overall health benefits than people who don't drink coffee.
Safeguard the liver.
Several studies published in respected journals have found that coffee drinking has beneficial effects on the liver by decreasing harmful liver enzyme levels and limiting liver scarring in people who have hepatitis C.
Promote heart health.
In 2013, the journal Epidemiology and Prevention published a review of studies analyzing the correlation between coffee consumption and cardiovascular disease. Data from 36 different studies showed that people who drink three to five cups of coffee per day had a lower risk of heart disease than those who drink no coffee or more than five cups per day.
Americans drink over 400 million cups of coffee per day, or 146 billion cups each year. Turns out that it's good for more than jump-starting our mornings or keeping us awake during meetings; a lot of recent research suggests that coffee offers a host of potential health benefits. This incredibly complex beverage contains more than 1,000 compounds that can affect the body. The most commonly studied are caffeine (a nervous-system stimulant that's known to have positive cognitive effects) and polyphenols (antioxidants that can help slow or prevent cell damage). It’s no wonder this popular beverage goes way beyond just the morning routine.
