Why Coffee Is World’s No. 1 Beverage Choice

By MangoBaaz Studio | 22 Aug, 2021

Hey! Be honest – you’re reading this with a cup of coffee in your hand, aren’t you? Ah, gotcha!

The popularity of coffee stretches from one pole of the earth to the other. When news first broke about Duchess Meghan and Duke Harry about considering Canada as their new home, Tim Hortons offered a free coffee supply for a lifetime for much-needed enticement. Given the global popularity of coffee, it’s utterly surprising how much suspicion and confusion surrounds how this steaming, dark nectar of caffeine affects our bodies.

Caffeine and a whole suite of antioxidants are the key biologically active ingredients in coffee.

You question why coffee is the world’s no. 1 beverage choice, yeah? While the fundamentals are easy, the devil is in the details! Coffee has a lot of caffeine, and that is it – that is the devil – the stimulant that keeps you awake! A fun fact though, bet you didn’t know this one: Caffeine in coffee is the most common and popular psychoactive drug in the world! It blocks adenosine by working as a stimulant, and that promotes sleep and relaxation.

Moving onto the antioxidants in coffee – you know all the buzz, don’t ya? For starters, things turn out pretty great and straightforward. The energy that keeps you going throughout the day is produced through metabolic processes. But here’s the dark side – these processes are not very clean – they produce a toxic waste of oxidized molecules. Guess who comes to the rescue? You know you’re there…….c’mon…….yep……that’s right……ANTIOXIDANTS!

Antioxidants are a group of tons and tons of molecules that swipe dangerous waste – strengthening the natural defenses and improving human biology (oh, thank you, coffee!).

Cancer – we’ve heard of the same old, now worn-out coffee-cancer conspiracy probably a million times in our lives – so often that it has become stale. Oh well, coffee does not cure cancer! But, but, but coffee sure as hell PREVENTS cancer and also other diseases. The answer to your how is up there – again, ANTIOXIDANTS! They have a cancer-fighting effect. Antioxidants fight cellular damage and protect DNA.

Interestingly, the higher the coffee consumption, the lower the rates of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. Besides, the rates of Type 2 diabetes also go down as more brew is taken off the shelves and tossed down the throat.

Well, that is all on the biology of coffee, and why it is the best beverage in the whole world (after water, of course!). In fact, we believe they might come up with a crazy coffee concept to substitute water, who knows – science is great and so is coffee! Chew the brew and drink the steam, after all, we’re on the coffee team!
