Time is one of the most valuable commodities in this world; you can’t buy it, rent it, save it, or renew it. People think twice before sleeping in that extra hour or taking that afternoon nap. Now during those times of fatigue people are turning to caffeinated drinks, ideally coffee.
Coffee is the world’s biggest consumer of beverage with the average person drinking three cups a day. Although coffee gives that extra jolt of energy to help get a person through the day it can also have some potential negative effects. Coffee containing caffeine can lead to insomnia, stress, nervousness, nausea, increased blood pressure, dehydration and much more.
If you’re like us, it’s tough to go a morning without coffee, let alone an entire day.
This is why we are about to share with you a new trend that has developed to improve your morning coffee.
Here are the three reasons why people are benefiting from adding coconut oil to their daily coffees.
Coconut oil has been used for cooking, and beauty uses but have you ever heard of putting it in your coffee? Not only does it help add extra flavor to your morning coffee it also comes along with some benefits.
Double the Energy Boost – The morning or mid-day coffee adds an energy boost to the system by waking it up with caffeine. Caffeine energy is good but by adding coconut oil you’re doubling your boost. Coconut oil contains Medium Chain Triglycerides also known as MCTs; the MCTs are absorbed and metabolized extremely fast by the body giving you an extra energy boost.
Improve Metabolism – Caffeine in coffee is known to increase the rate at which your body burns calories. What people don’t understand is that this only works when a black coffee is sipped on throughout the day. The same statistics do not hold true when adding creams, sugars or ordering calorie-packed Frappuccinos. If you’re this type of coffee drinker the extra calories can actually hurt you and stored as fat.
Instead of adding sugars or creams trying adding coconut oil to the coffee to help improve the metabolism. By adding the MCTs into the coffee the body quickly converts it into fuel instead of being stored as fat.
Supporting Immune System - The bodies’ immune system is constantly working to keep the body healthy and when fighting the need to sleep it starts working overtime. By drinking a coconut oil coffee we help aid our immune system in the process. Coconut oil contains many fatty acids and within those acids, more than half is Lauric Acid. Lauric Acid is a healthy fat that contains antimicrobial properties. These properties can help the body defend itself from the flu, common colds, and many other diseases.
Coconut oil is a different type of oil that is solid at room temperature by liquefies when warm. It can be heated at extreme temperatures and still hold onto all of its properties.
When adding coconut oil to coffee it’s suggested to blend it together instead of stir. By blending it in it will make sure it’s even mixed and tastes great. We suggest adding a tablespoon of unrefined organic coconut oil as a fantastic way to get the benefits of coconut oil into your morning routine.
