Did you know that coffee is good for you? New findings have shown that coffee is a rich source of antioxidants that contribute significantly to your daily total antioxidant intake.
What are Antioxidants and what role do they play in your bodies?
Every day your body is exposed to harmful external and internal factors that can cause cell damage and increase the risk of many diseases. UV light, smoking, air pollution, radiation and tissue inflammation can affect the integrity of your cells and your health in general.

How many cups of coffee per day to get your antioxidants?

As coffee is also a source of caffeine, a natural stimulant, it is recommended to consume coffee in moderation – an average of 3-4 cups per day.
Whether you opt for normal or decaffeinated coffee or choose to top it off with milk or creamer, you will still benefit from coffee’s antioxidant content!
