While it is sometimes contested, the benefits of coffee have been proven many times over. They mostly stem from the fact that coffee contains powerful antioxdants (including both hydrocinnamic acids and plyphenols) that help clear the body of free radicals. Even so, is there a way to make your morning cup of antioxidant coffee even more powerful? YES!
Coconut oil also has significant antioxidant properties that assist in lowering cholesterol, improving digestion, fighting disease, building cells, and increasing metabolism. Add some into your coffee and you’re already on your way to a new level of AWAKE. Could it get better than this?
Yes! A 2012 study confirmed that pea protein has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in mice. Pea protein hydrolysates were shown to inhibit nitric oxide production and tumor necrosis factor alpha. Plus, adding a scoop into the mix adds 30 grams of protein into your coffee.
Throw in some cinnamon, almond milk, and Mexican chocolate and you have the Silver Wolf Protein & Antioxidant Coffee Recipe.
Antioxidant Coffee Instructions
