Coffee is High in Antioxidants

Coffee is good for you! Coffee is bad for you! Experts can’t seem to make up their mind on this one. But today, it is in the “good for you” category! Turns out that coffee has lot’s of antioxidants.

Think of a nail. You put it out in the weather and it rusts. It is “oxidizing.” Left long enough it would “oxidize” away to nothing. A similar thing happens at the cellular level in the body. Oxidants “eat away” at cells. Therefore, “anti-oxidants” keep your cells from being “eaten away.” (OK, a VERY simple analogy.)

Coffee as an antioxidant

So, go have a cup a’ joe and know that you are being healthy! (At least this week!)

  • Antioxidants are agents from plant sources that prevent the breakdown or mutation of cells in the body. Astaxanthin, the active ingredient in Bioastin, has demonstrated exceptional capabilities as an antioxidant.
