Dr Jockers Comments:
Coffee is rich in powerful polyphenol anti-oxidants chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid. These anti-oxidants help to preferentially support the development of healthy microbes in the intestines such as bifido bacterium. Coconut oil and grass-fed butter help to further support the gut with small and medium chain fatty acids. These fats help to reduce inflammation in the body, help the thyroid function better and improve brain processing.
Cinnamon and nutmeg help to stabilize blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity. The caffeine in the coffee will drive up some adrenal activity and increase blood sugar levels. By adding in coconut oil and/or grass-fed butter along with cinnamon you help to stabilize blood sugar and give you long-lasting energy, fat burning and improved mood and memory.
A cup of organic coffee daily is a wonderful health recommendation for most individuals. Using this recipe is the BEST way to maximize the performance enhancing benefits of coffee without the adrenal and blood sugar roller coaster that often occurs with coffee and caffeine consumption.
