National Nutrition Month

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

March is National Nutrition Month!  Everyone knows nutrition plays a huge role in maintaining a healthy body and protecting against chronic disease, and here are some ways HealthWise Coffee can help:

  • - Antioxidants: These help protect the body against disease, by fighting off free radicals which attack healthy cells and cause illness. Coffee is the leading source of antioxidants in the US diet, and over half of Americans enjoy it each day.
  • - Minerals: Minerals are essential for normal body functioning, from bone health to the ability to focus. HealthWise Coffee has a patented roasting formula which allows it to retain more minerals than other coffees. Drinking HealthWise can significantly contribute to your Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of these minerals:

Calcium                4.6%
Potassium           18.6%
Iron                     12.9%
Zinc                      6.4%

  • - Low Acid Content: The typical American diet is too acidic, and millions of Americans rely on medication to control their stomach discomfort. The human body should stay in the pH range of 7.35-7.45, and those who go beyond this desired range can suffer from kidney, bladder, heart, and joint issues. HealthWise Low Acid Coffee has the most neutral pH of all of the coffee brands we tested in the HealthWise pH Challenge. With the risk of an upset stomach gone, you can enjoy more coffee as well!
  • - Protective Elements: Coffee has been shown in several studies to protect against certain types of cancers, Type-II diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, and more.
