For people experiencing stomach issues, one of the first things a doctor generally suggests is removing coffee from the diet. New research now suggests changing how coffee is brewed - from hot to cold-brewed to relieve acid reflux problems.
“We hear reports all the time how customers feel relief when switching
to cold-brewed coffee,” commented Destin Knowles, spokesperson for a
company selling high quality cold brew coffee filters, Madesco Cold-brew Coffee.
“It's always rewarding to hear about people who, despairing that they
may have had to give up their daily ‘joe,’ getting to continue enjoying
coffee’s great flavors. Add the discovered health benefits delivered by
cold brew and there’s little reason not to give it a try. Starbucks is
rarely wrong, and they were more than likely on to something when they
recently began offering cold-brewed coffee in 1,800 of their cafes,”
It turns out cold-brewed coffee increases energy levels while
heightening focus and mental acuity - a point confirmed in controlled
studies of brain function where people consumed no more than a cup or
two of coffee. It can also boost metabolism while favorably impacting
athletic performance and fitness. Can you say, “Loss of fat?” This
energetic boost offered in a single cup can help a person run faster,
lift more and display more endurance.
Finally, cold-brewed coffee has shown itself to not aggravate the
stomach lining as can its steaming sibling, thereby sidestepping
chemical changes in natural coffee acids that, when triggered by heat,
turn flavors bitter. This probably explains the smoother tones gushed
about by cold-brew aficionados. Some people even recommend
cold-brewed coffee to calm an upset stomach. So rather than throw out
your favorite coffee mug, join others who now make their coffee - cold -
straight out of the faucet.
