Over the past few years, researchers have discovered that:

  • Drinking 3-4 cups of coffee per day is associated with a 25% lower risk of type 2 diabetes (compared to people who drink less than 2 cups per day)1
  • With each additional cup of coffee you drink, your relative risk of developing T2D drops by 7-8 per cent2.
  • Chlorogenic acid and trigonelline found in coffee causes a reduction in your your body’s glucose and insulin responses – helpful for avoiding T2D.
  • Moderate coffee consumption is not associated with an increased risk of hypertension, stroke or coronary heart disease4 ,5, 6.
  • Moderate coffee consumption is inversely related to your risk of heart failure

All in all, coffee looks to have some significant health benefits.

Not sure about the massive doses of sugar, cream & cigarettes that seem to go hand in hand with coffee drinking.

    Thanks Douglas. Love the article. There is a healthier choice of Coffee & Tea infused with Ganoderma-​Caffeine Free.

    In China it’s known as the “Miraculous King of Herbs.” The scientific name for this mushroom is “Ganoderma” and is derived from the Ancient Greek “bright shiny skin”, used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years.

    There is a line of coffee beverages and other health products such as Ganoderma Lucidum Capsules, Ganoderma Spore Powder, Ganoderma Mycellium Healthy Beverages, Nutrecuticals and Skin Care. And there is even more to come. Our goal is to develop an ever expanding line of scientifically developed Ganoderma based products.

    Our primary product line is coffee, the flavors are black, latte, and mocha, they also have tea and hot chocolate.
