I started drinking coffee, more specifically, Neuro Coffee (we have it at IFAST) about 3 years ago.
It turns out that coffee is an outstanding anti-oxidant that protects us from the oxidation that occurs when we make energy from our food and oxygen. So coffee all by itself is good for you.
Neuro Coffee has BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) that creates new neurons in your brain and protects the ones you have.
Throw in some PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline Quinone) in the form of dark cocoa powder and you’ve just given every cell in your body, including your brain, another powerful anti-oxidant to help support mitochondrial health. Mitochondria produce energy and can be destroyed by the oxidative stress of metabolism. Healthy mitochondria not only provide energy for now, but there’s good evidence that mitchondrial health is a key element in avoiding all disease and promoting longevity.
Medium-chain triglyceride oil is good for a healthy gut where we produce a number of important neurotransmitters used in the brain. It’s also converted to ketones that the brain can use for energy.
There you have it.
No need to create any new habits. Just keep drinking your coffee like always, but consider kicking it up a notch to make it even better for your body and your brain.
