Make Your Coffee Even Better

So the Victor crew came across an interesting article on USAToday.com about how to make coffee better for your brain and body. So let’s look at some of the suggestions.

First one is butter. This is just a a nod to Bulletproof type coffee. This is a way people on the ketogenic diets can use. This helps to make you feel full longer. It is suggested to use butter from grass-fed cows or ghee. Coconut oil or MCT is another ingredient you find in Bulletproof coffee.

Another suggestions is mushrooms. This could come in the form of powder. Specifically they suggest chaga or lion’s mane. Mushrooms contain antioxidants. Lion’s mane helps you with focus and concentration as well as the nervous system.

Cinnamon is another thing you can add. Not only does it taste good, it helps with glucose and cholesterol.

Jägermeister Cold Brew

Jägermeister has indeed developed a blend of their Jägermeister in an herbal (blend of 56 herbs, blossoms, roots, fruit) liqueur with arabica coffee and cacao. It is not yet available but will be the beginning of 2020. You can sign up to be notified on their website: jagermeister.com

It has 33% alcohol, so maybe this won’t be your daytime drink of choice. It is meant to be served in frosty shots (with about 10% of the caffeine found in a normal cup of coffee).

Can’t wait? You can try to make your own:

Bean-Free Coffee

With labs making meat-free meat, now they are trying to make bean-free coffee. Because of climate change, researchers have been trying to find alternatives for our food supply. Coffee crops use a lot of water to grow so they are looking for alternatives. They have turned to formulating coffee in a lab.

A Seattle company is working to develop “molecular coffee”. Atomo has made the world’s first molecular coffee that contains no coffee beans. They reverse-engineered the coffee bean and made a smoother, less-bitter coffee with the same caffeine.

To Caffeine or Not to Caffeine

If you are used to drinking coffee, what happens if you stop?

You will have some side effects. Some of the side effects will make others around you suffer as well as you because it can cause you to have depression and irritability. You may have headaches and lethargy as well.

Cutting back can cut down on panic attacks, be better on your teeth, help with heartburn. Cutting back does have benefits but you may miss out on the boost you get from it.

Hot Summer, Hot Coffee

There is nothing wrong with drinking hot coffee in the summer. In fact if you aren’t quite to the point of sweating yet, it can be a good thing.

You see, the way our bodies cool is by sweating. The sweat then evaporates from our skin and that is what cools us off. When you drink something hot, your stomach sensors get active and send signals you are hot to your hypothalamus. It then reacts by overcompensating with sweat.

If you are very hot and sweaty already – go ahead and drink your coffee cold because it won’t help.
