More and more people are becoming health conscious about the foods and beverages they consume. Unlike organic foods and beverages, including coffee, traditionally grown foods often use synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides, usually to increase the amount of product being grown. Farming organic coffee beans are considered a form of environmentally friendly farming because it helps with restoring the nutrients in the soil over time. This ultimately reduces the need for chemical products, because the organic coffee beans are being grown in soil that resists harmful pests and provides the soil it needs for richer nutrients. Here are just a couple of the benefits of coffee beans that have been organically grown.
Coffee beans that aren’t grown organically often have pesticide residue on them. Many of these pesticides may not only be a major cause of harmful diseases, such as cancer but if you drink coffee on a regular basis, these pesticides may enter your body and cause significant damage to your nervous and reproductive systems. Organic coffee beans are grown under shade, which is where beneficial nutrients are preserved in both the soil and the coffee. Along with being beneficial for your nervous and reproductive systems, the health benefits of organically grown coffee beans include:
- High in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals
- Organic coffee beans contain caffeine in the purest form, so it is a natural energy booster
- There is no risk of chemical ingestion because it is free from pesticides and chemical fertilizers
- The absence of pesticide and chemicals reduces the risk of getting certain types of cancers and diabetes
There are a lot of advantages to organic coffee beans being grown in shades. The soil is not exposed to direct sunlight, which removes the nutrients from the soil; hence the need for chemical fertilizers. Although there are many health benefits that come with drinking organically grown coffee, one of the best benefits is the superior taste that organic has over the less expensive, regular grown coffee.
