Coffee is the # 1 Source of Antioxidants in the U.S. diet – nothing else comes close. So says a researcher at the University of Scranton. Over one-half of the U.S. population drinks coffee every day.
Coffee has over 1,000 bioactive compounds. The vitamin Niacin is actually formed during the roasting process.
Over 19,000 studies have been made regarding coffee over the past several decades, and many point to how coffee is beneficial to one’s health.
Published studies have shown that coffee may help prevent the following diseases or conditions:
In addition, consuming coffee has been shown to help promote eye health, boost memory and help blood vessel function.
References to the studies associated with all the conditions noted above can be found on our Blog.
Millions of consumers in the U.S. cannot tolerate the acid present in coffee, due to acid reflux, GERD, or some other stomach discomfort. If you are one of those people, you should find that you can drink multiple cups of HealthWise coffee and not have stomach discomfort.
Beyond stomach discomfort, how much acid is present in our bodies is important – too much can be bad for you. Our bodies live in an alkaline state, yet the American diet is highly acidic.
All coffees are acidic, despite some claims of “acid free acid coffee”. When reviewing the degree of acidity of coffee, the pH scale is an appropriate measure, as coffees can be compared one against another. Pure water has a pH of 7.0 and numbers below that are acidic and numbers above that alkaline. HealthWise has a tested pH of 6.18. The pH scale is logarithmic, such that each whole number difference is 10 times more or less acidic than the other number. For example, a coffee with a pH of 5.18 is 10 times more acidic than HealthWise. The unroasted coffee bean has a pH of 5.0 and most coffees have a pH of 5.0 to 5.8 according to our study.
As a result of the application of the TechnoRoasting™ process, HealthWise coffee has a higher level of beneficial vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. Dozens of trace elements are essential for normal growth and development.
There are over 170 million coffee drinkers in the U.S., and about 65% of them use cream and/or sugar to sweeten the coffee and cut the bitterness.
If you are one of the approximate 110 million people who use creamers or sweeteners, please give HealthWise a try – and forego fat, calories and cholesterol. With HealthWise, there is no bitterness, no harshness, just a full bodied mellow taste.
