Perks Of Coffee

Coffee is one of nature’s most popular and amazing natural wonders. From the cold brew coffee craze to innovative new methods to keep your coffee hot and make it more enjoyable, this magical bean water continues to grow in popularity.

In fact, it’s estimated that more than 400 billion cups of coffee are consumed each year. It’s important to note that, like with anything, the benefits of drinking coffee are at their most when moderation is practiced.

That incredible rate of consumption is at least due in part due the many benefits that are associated with coffee. Among the perks (get it?) are:
Antioxidants: Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants, and it’s commonly thought to contain more of these vital disease-fighters than tea, red wine, dark chocolate, fruit, and other food sources.

  • Caffeine!: One of the main reasons people drink coffee in the morning is because it provides that much-needed boost to get to (and through) the work day. A typical cup of coffee contains about 95 mg of caffeine, which is great for that morning boost but can also have some adverse effects (jitters, anxiety, trouble sleeping). 
  • Lowered Risk Of Diabetes: Coffee is more than just a stimulant, however. Thanks to its ability to increase production of certain proteins within the body, even decaffeinated coffee can help promote health and protect against conditions like type 2 diabetes.
  • Liver Health: Drinking coffee on a regular basis can also be good for the liver and protect this vital organ from many ailments, such as liver disease, cirrhosis, and liver cancer. 
  • Heart Health: Coffee contains many essential and beneficial nutrients, such as: potassium, manganese, magnesium, and niacin. These nutrients are more are helpful when it comes to improving the health of our immune system as well as the health of our hearts. 

Perks Of Tea

Like coffee, tea is an ancient wonder that has only built upon its reputation in modern times. Tea is found just about everywhere these days, from the big coffee chains to the little mom and pop shops. From herbal tea to black tea to green tea, these little packets tend to pack a punch and a great deal of benefits. Among them are:

  • Less Caffeine: As noted above, caffeine can be a powerful and beneficial byproduct of both coffee and tea. However, knowing that it can also carry some negative ramifications, tea might be a better choice for some as it has lower caffeine amounts as well as significantly more caffeine-free herbal options. 
  • Fight Inflammation: Tea, like coffee, is packed with a great deal of all-natural antioxidants which can help fight a number of conditions. Chief among the conditions soothed by tea is inflammation, as it has been shown to relax and soften blood vessels. 
  • No Calories: Most tea, so long as it hasn’t been filled with additives like sugar, is free of calories. The same can’t be said about coffee. So if you’re looking to experience these great benefits while on a diet, tea can be a great way to go. 
  • Heart Health: Again, like coffee tea can be advantageous for heart health. It’s thought that tea can reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and even high cholesterol. 

Which Is Better?

So did we even get to the bottom of this debate? Probably not. There will always be disagreements about whether tea or coffee is better, but as we said at the top it really comes down to personal preference.

Both can be enjoyed while hot or ice cold — and both are notably less enjoyable when they are somewhere in between.

That’s why whichever you prefer, it’s imperative that you have the best smart mug to keep your beverage at the perfect temperature.
