If you’re a coffee drinker — you know. A cup of it is like gold in your hands every morning as you shake off sleep and start your day. The enticing, unmistakable aroma lures you in passing by coffee shops on the street or at the mall. It’s a connection with friends. It’s a treat after a rich meal. It’s exactly what you need when that afternoon slump kicks in and you’ve got to be on your toes until 5 p.m.
One of the most popular beverages not only in the United States — where 63 percent of adults drink it daily — but worldwide, with an estimated 1.6 billion cups downed every day around the globe, coffee clearly has some feel-good effects that keep us coming back for more. But beyond the delicious, rich, roasted flavor and eye-opening perks we all enjoy, coffee has some surprising health benefits you may not have been aware of.
Did you know coffee is the number one source of antioxidants in the American diet? Brewed from the roasted beans (which are actually seeds) of a tropical plant, coffee is an incredibly rich source of these naturally protective compounds, with a single cup delivering more than a typical serving of blueberries, raspberries or even oranges (1).
Over the years, coffee has been the subject of tens of thousands of scientific studies, with evidence showing a wide range of benefits, from preventing cavities to boosting athletic performance to reducing some risk for some of the nation’s most serious health issues.* While it isn’t clear exactly how much coffee is best for health support, overall results suggest that moderate consumption — two or three cups a day — can be a healthy addition to your diet.
Here at Vitacost, we’re always looking for ways to not only take the cost out of healthy living, but to bring you the best possible products to support your wellness efforts. With these goals in mind, we’ve created a new, premium line of organic and gourmet coffee you’re going to love: the Vitacost brew collection.
Whether you sip the occasional cup or consider yourself somewhat of a java junkie, Vitacost brew is an exquisite coffee even selective connoisseurs will appreciate. Each gourmet-style blend is made from the finest, 100% Arabica beans, roasted to perfection for rich, full-bodied flavor and exceptional taste. Choose from:
Brew Certified Organic Coffee: Try our Breakfast Blend, an invigorating coffee that marries smooth taste and steady energy, for the perfect start to your day. Or, go with classic Colombian for a medium roast that’s smooth-bodied with nuances of nuttiness.
