People are becoming more and more aware of what they put into their bodies. Whether you go on a new diet, buy only organic produce, or research everything -- we can all agree that we want what’s best for our health. What does this careful behavior mean for one of the most consumed beverages in the world?
Coffee is a staple in many households and offices: people drink an average of about 3.1 cups per day in the US. We recently surveyed office workers and found that 92% reported drinking coffee daily -- that’s a lot of coffee we’re consuming! People are often worried about drinking too much coffee, but coffee actually has a lot of amazing health benefits. Many people know that coffee is packed with antioxidants, which helps lower health risks such as diabetes, and helps increase weight loss. So, what other benefits can coffee give us?
According to the American Heart Association, having just one cup of coffee per week can lower your risk of both heart failure and stroke. The study was conducted over a period of 30 years on over 2,500 people. The scientists conducting this study discovered that only one cup a day decreased the risks by 7-8%. While this percentage may not seem high to us, every year, 15 million people suffer from stroke. And out of those 15 million, about 6 million die while 5 million are permanently disabled. Those incredibly high numbers shed a whole new light on the 7-8% decrease, and some studies show that drinking several cups of coffee a day can help decrease the chance of having a stroke even further. However, brewing several cups a day can be time consuming, and purchasing it at a cafe adds up quickly. .
Many offices offer coffee to their employees to help offset time spent away from the office purchasing coffee, but the quality and standards are low resulting in their staff leaving for better options. Having Nitro Cold Brew on tap not only allows people to get their coffee fast, but it offers everyone in the office a high quality option. Even if you work from home most days, making Cold Brew right from home is an easy and efficient way to drink your coffee.
