How to boost up coffee and make it healthy!
Most of us start our days with a cup of coffee and it’s pretty much incomplete if we don’t get ours at the right time. Despite the fact that we all know coffee to be not so healthy BUT what if we tell you that along with your coffee you can have a dose of vitamins, antioxidants and other nutrients too? Wouldn’t that be amazing! So today, here we present six add ons that will increase the value of your regular coffee.
Recently I shared my daughter’s bottle of cold black coffee brew and it tasted little different and more refreshing. When asked she told that she adds juice of half lime in her brew with ice. Hmmm! so I thought of finding out a few more ways to add on bit more flavour as well as some extra antioxidants to the morning or anytime cuppa.
Here is what we do at home to boost up coffee.
Little bit of cinnamon sprinkled on your coffee can be a powerful dose of antioxidants. Cinnamon is used since ages both as a spice and is known for its medical properties. It has nearly 41 protective compounds which makes it contain the highest antioxidant properties. If you wish to look for even a better performance, search for Ceylon cinnamon.
Have you ever tried ginger with your coffee? Well, if not you are missing a lot. Next time just sprinkle some ginger powder in your coffee, and you’ll get a slightly spicy and aromatic cup in your hands full of benefits. Ginger is considered as a treatment for nausea, muscle pain, lower cholesterol and also it helps in better digestion. Simply add ginger to your coffee and have it better than before.
Well, this must sound pretty much absurd to you. But let’s get to know more about it, a fungi filled brew can actually have surprising health benefits. Mushrooms are known for their antiviral and immune strengthening powers. They are loaded with antioxidants and also aid in digestion. So why not try once! (Frankly speaking we haven’t yet dared to try this one :P)
Turmeric Latte is something that we have read over the health blogs quite familiarly. The compound curcumin is the one that makes it such a powerful antioxidant which helps in liver detoxification, digestion, and might also help in curing depression. It is the antioxidant powerhouse. To boost the benefit of the turmeric, you can also add a pinch of black pepper.
Chocolate and coffee are already the best pair. And even better than that, if you add raw cacao powder to your coffee to increase the benefits. This is the most powerful antioxidant as it has the base in plant source iron. It helps control the blood pressure, increase the good cholesterol, reduce depression and is even mood enhancing.
We truly understand your love for coffee but what can be better if along with that you get additional benefits too, just by adding a single ingredient. Thus, we would recommend you to try all the above mentioned add ons to make your coffee even better, along with the health benefits. You can thank us later!
