Science Shows Coffee as World's Biggest Source of Antioxidants

Here at RhoadsRoast Coffees, we know that there are a variety of opinions about the health benefits of coffee and, while some people love coffee and believe that it is healthy and energizing, others believe that coffee is addictive and harmful. With this in mind let's look at the facts:

1. Coffee contains very large amounts of antioxidants, including polyphenols and hydro cinnamic acids. These antioxidants may improve health and help reduce the risk of several diseases.

2. Most antioxidants in the Western diet come from beverages such as coffee and tea. Only 21% of dietary antioxidants come from food.

3. Studies from all over the world have shown that coffee is the single biggest source of antioxidants in the diet.

4. Drinking coffee has been linked to numerous health benefits, including a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and liver, heart and neurological diseases. Coffee may also benefit mental health and help you live longer.

Essentially, scientific studies have shown that coffee is loaded with antioxidants and beneficial nutrients that can improve and maintain good health. Additionally, science shows that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of serious diseases and studies actually show that coffee is good for you.
