Coffee Day!

by Christina on September 29, 2016

It’s no surprise that I *love* coffee!

In honor of today being National Coffee Day (I didn’t even know this existed until today!), and as I drink my second cup of the day, I thought I’d share with you this nice article from Authority Nutrition summarizing evidence for health benefits of coffee:

This includes: making you smarter, increasing metabolism, providing nutrients and antioxidants (coffee being “the biggest source of antioxidants in the western diet”), lowering your risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, improving your mood, lowering some cancer risks… and more.

I also like Dr. Greger’s summaries on coffee at NutritionFacts.org here.

And if you’d like some more reading with your coffee, check out my post over at San Francisco Moms Blog today with some Fall treats from Sprouts Farmers Market!

But does coffer over time dull the whiteness of one’s teeth?

Yes, one needs to weigh the risks and benefits (or just drink it with a straw)!
