Coffee and Superfoods?
Are Coffee and Superfoods a good idea? We say hell yeah!
If coffee is your go-to in the mornings (as it should be), a super coffee would be even better, right?
First, let’s take a look at how awesome coffee is for the athlete. Right off the bat, we know the high levels of caffeine in coffee significantly improve our body's ability to trigger fat oxidation or, in other words, burn fat during exercise. That’s a good thing, right? So how do we do it? Well, that's simple: once caffeine enters the bloodstream, the body begins the process.
First you'll notice your blood pressure and heart rate elevate. Next, the body will start to break down stored fat and fatty acids to release into the bloodstream. Why does it do that, you may ask…? The body is preparing for that “boost of energy” you feel from the caffeine. It is prepping your body for optimal performance and energy output.
Research shows a significant increase in fat oxidation (burning) as a result of the increased metabolism post-caffeine consumption. Since the caffeine is what opens the door, a high-quality coffee that naturally has high caffeine content, like Caffeine and Kilos organic PR Blend, is a great option. A little secret though: it won’t burn the fat if you don’t get out there and be awesome!
So, what’s up with these superfoods? Let’s get one thing straight: there is no one-set standard as to what is or isn’t a “superfood.” That said, it is widely accepted that superfoods are nutritionally dense, all-natural, with minimally processed ingredients, and have significant positive effects on our body. For example, MCT Oil, or Medium Chain Triglycerides, are readily transported from the gut to your liver. The easy uptake of MCTs by the cells contribute to its many health benefits such as better brain function, increased energy levels and improved weight management.
And what about those hemp extracts? You might know it as CBD. This superfood offers your body the support it needs to combat stress and pain while regulating your system and working to bring the body back to homeostasis.

Now that you’re in the know, let’s turn that coffee into “Supercoffee”. What are you waiting for? Get out there and do something amazing!”
