Subject: Fake Healthy coffees
 

Two days ago I had a huge discussion with two ladies who came to my Facebook page to promote their healthy coffee - you know those enriched coffees that offer some amazing health benefits. I am totally against these artificial, fortified and enriched coffees, and I do not support this as a healthy choice. I mean, coffee already has its own benefits and there is no need to buy these fake healthy coffees. They are not natural product and can have so many sideeffects.  I wanted to post this as a warning, but also hear your opinion. Thanks

I recently saw something about coffee with probiotics in it being promoted as 'healthy'.  I say NO THANKS to promoted 'healthy' coffee ANYTHING!  I'll drink my coffee AS coffee. Will take my chosen supplements separately with meals, etc.

Netphilosopher.....  read all you posted on BSkinny Coffee (Drink). Great read, including your humorous comments---laughed out loud. Of course the first two letters in this 'coffee' brand name say it all.

A few things can be said about this subject in general:
  1. There are quite a few positive effects on health of coffee itself, and the notion that it's bad for you has been outdated for quite a while.
  2. Dietary supplements mostly serve but one purpose: to maximize the profit of their manufacturers. Their effect on health is sometimes even unfavourable. For example, all placebo controlled medical studies I know that were aimed at proving that vitamin substitution lowers the risk of developing cancer actually found evidence that there's no effect or even a higher risk in the study population.
  3. In western civilization there's hardly any nutritious deficiancy as far as vitamins or micronutrients are concerned as long as you eat a half way balanced diet. Apart from vitamin C, even fast food contains more than enough nutrients. There's no need for supplemetary pills. The problem with fast food is that we tend to eat too many calories.

In Nicaragua (technically Western civilisation, but in all honesty a far cry from consumption styles in the north), I know of a coffee cooperative that is piloting a scheme to provide iron fortified coffee to school children in the northern highlands where diets are far from nutritious, meat consumption very low due to cost, but coffee is consumed by the gallon from the cradle. I have heard reports of (but not seen them) a similar project in rural Southern Mexico which was thought to have a direct impact on primary school attendance and performance as children were found to have more energy due to the iron supplement in the coffee. I know this is a bit off the sense of the original post, but anyways...
