Does Cold Brew Coffee Live up to All the Hype?
Coffee itself has had a bad wrap over the years, but has been proven in recent studies to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain, supercharging memory, cognition and focus when consumed in moderate doses.
In fact, a November 2015 study in medical journal Circulation found that coffee consumption was associated with an 8-15% reduction in risk of death, while other studies found that coffee drinkers may have reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, Type 2 Diabetes and Parkinson’s disease.
Cold-brew coffee specifically is less acidic and offers improved control over gastric acid secretion (a perfect antidote to that common but pesky acid reflux, common with coffee consumption). It also contains higher amounts of antioxidants than regular coffee to fight free radical exposure and environmental toxins, making cold-brew the perfect choice for the coffee-lover.
Benefits of Adding MCTs – And What Are They?
Meanwhile, Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are fatty acid compounds extracted from coconut oil. They are efficiently absorbed and sent directly to the liver to be converted to energy to boost metabolic processes and aid weight loss. MCTs also increase circulating ketone bodies, a process known in the Keto Diet to improve brain function. MCT consumption therefore is the key to enhanced exercise endurance and mental focus. Through hunger suppression and increased satiety, studies show daily consumption of MCTs are the key to weight loss and performance.
Pop culture has taught us that two are always better than one (think McCartney and Lennon, Batman and Robin, Barbie and Ken, Mulder and Scully…). So, in keeping with tradition, cold-brew coffee when combined with MCT oil work together to offer a heightened sense of energy, supreme focus and increased attention span and improved exercise performance. It is Jagger WITH Richards, Bert WITH Ernie, Holmes WITH Watson. It is the easy way to supercharge your life – and taken in an easy capsule form, does not cause any digestive discomfort.
Guarantee superhero (and sidekick) status with Cold-brew coffee and MCTs.
