The Health Benefits of Drinking 100% Organic Coffee

 

Organic coffee is free of chemical pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides.

Coffee bushes are often sprayed heavily with chemical pesticides, including banned chemicals, such as Endosulfan, while the soil is treated with carcinogenic glyphosate to kill weeds.

Certain well-known coffee brands grow some of their coffee in Brazil and China where pesticides categorized as “Extremely Hazardous” and “Moderately Hazardous” are still used in spite of being banned in many countries or even globally.

Organic coffee boosts the immune system and guards against disease, and it is high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

It has many potential health benefits due to its antioxidant content. The antioxidants decrease oxidative stress in the body and therefore reduce risk of diseases like cancer, and also reduce inflammation in the body. They also help to prevent and treat diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels after meals.

Environmental Benefits of Organic Coffee Farming

  • In order to meet the high demand of coffee production and keep costs low, some non-organic coffee growers clear-cut rain forests to create full-sun coffee plantations that seriously damage the environment. These coffee plantations use chemical fertilisers, which ruin the soil; herbicides to kill the soil-covering plants and weeds; and pesticides to keep the pests away. If the conventional, chemical coffee growers did not deforest the land and ruin the nutrient-dense soil, there would be natural predators and biodiversity to deal with the coffee pests without toxic pesticides.
  • In contrast, organic coffee farmers preserve the biodiversity in the ecosystem because this provides nutrition and protection for the coffee plants. They also use compost to fertilise the soil.
  • By not using chemical pesticides or chemical fertilizers, no harmful chemicals seep into the soil and underground water to cause harm to nearby communities. In addition, coffee farmers and their employees do not breathe in any toxic sprays. 

Chemically Grown Coffee Is Bad for One’s Health

  • 100% organic coffee costs more than chemically grown coffee, such as Nescafe. But aside from it smoother and richer taste, 100% organic coffee is so much healthier for you. Conventional coffee is among the most heavily, chemically-treated foods in the world. It is sprayed abundantly with pesticides, fungicides, and insecticides while the soil is treated with herbicides. Endosulphan, which is a dangerous chemical, is still commonly sprayed on conventional coffee plantations. In contrast, organic coffee is grown with only organic fertilizers, such as manure and compost, together with perhaps an organic foliar spray supplying nutrients.
  • The harsh chemicals used in the production of non-organic coffee can actually harm you, such as by causing cancer, hormone imbalances, and nervous system troubles.
  • This video called “Toxic Chemicals in Coffee: Pick Your Poison” is about the chemicals in chemically grown coffee. 

Flavour of organic Coffee

The flavour of organic coffee is improved by organic farming. It also has a richer and softer taste.

General Benefits of Drinking Coffee

You can enjoy the general benefits of drinking coffee without worrying about the health effects of consuming harmful and sometimes carcinogenic chemicals. For example:

  • Better overall mood.
  • Coffee is the biggest dietary source of immune-system boosting antioxidants.
  • Increased fibre intake.
  • It is full of nutrition-boosting B vitamins such as niacin, pantothenic acid, and riboflavin.
  • Reduced risk of certain diseases.
  • Improved cognitive function.
  • Its moderate amounts of caffeine can provide a natural energy boost.
  • The caffeine in coffee boosts your metabolism. It stimulates your nervous system, which causes body fat to burn by taking fatty acids out of fat cells.
