Is It Healthy to Eat Your Coffee?
What’s not to love about coffee? It not only tastes great, it also is an essential way to start the day for millions and millions of people. In fact, 54% of coffee drinkers say that it is only after having their morning cup of coffee do they feel like themselves.
But what many people don’t realize is that coffee offers benefits other than wiping the sleep out of their eyes. Coffee contains antioxidants that can help reduce your risk of developing several serious diseases. It has been shown to help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, skin cancer, liver disease, and Type-2 diabetes. Drinking a cup or two of coffee can even help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
While drinking coffee is the traditional way people ingest it, new studies are showing that eating it might be even more beneficial. Here are three key ways that eating your coffee has shown to be healthier for you.
You Get More Antioxidants by Eating Coffee
For most Americans, the bulk of their antioxidant intake comes through their daily cups of coffee. But as antioxidant-rich as brewed coffee is, far more antioxidants never make it into the cup. The reason is because the majority of coffee’s antioxidants remain in the grounds after brewing.
By skipping the brewing process and eating the coffee, you will enjoy the full amount of antioxidants found within the beans. This is important because antioxidants are essential for keeping free radicals out of the bloodstream. So, the more you ingest, the healthier your body will be.
Coffee Beans are Low Calorie
If you are watching your weight or trying to lose a few pounds, then eating your coffee is a great way to enjoy a snack that is also very low calorie. Eating one-ounce of espresso coffee beans adds just three calories to your daily diet. But, eating your coffee with a source of quality dark chocolate provides you with an energy boost!
Caffeine is Absorbed Quicker When Eaten
Need to wake up quickly? Then you’ll want to skip your cup of coffee and just eat it. The beneficial active ingredients in coffee are absorbed through the mucous membranes in the mouth, so when you eat your coffee the ingredients get absorbed much quicker. Eating coffee will make your brain more alert, eliminate your mental fog, and fill your body with the powerful antioxidants you need faster than drinking it.
