Can coffee support metabolic function & hormones?

The answer is YES. 🙌🏼

There is conflicting information about consuming coffee, and if you do, how it should be done. A lot of my clients think they should be drinking their coffee black or not at all! 🙅🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

☕️ First off, coffee is a pro-metabolic thermogenic food that supports the thyroid, boosts the metabolism and increases the oxidation of fatty acids. It is a nutrient powerhouse- rich in manganese, niacin, riboflavin, and pantothenic acid which has a potent ability to eliminate heavy metals. 💥

🤔 Let’s understand the science of HOW exactly coffee impacts our body & hormones and then decide what is best for yourself:

1️⃣Caffeinated coffee causes a release of the stress hormone, cortisol. That leads to a stress response within the body, when stressed, the body does not prioritize hormone production.

2️⃣The rise in cortisol leads to our livers breaking down stored sugar (from our muscles) for energy in response to the stress. This leads to a rise in blood sugar, and followed by a drop.

3️⃣Caffeinated coffee depletes magnesium, so make sure you eat magnesium rich foods daily if you are a regular drinker. Magnesium is one of the main building block of our sex hormones. 🧬

⚠️COFFEE IS NOT BREAKFAST- and the negative effects of coffee like feeling anxious or shaky/jittery after drinking coffee is from a lack of nutrients, which causes low blood sugar. Remember when I said coffee speeds up your metabolism? That means you have an increased need for fuel. ⛽️

How to make coffee Pro-metabolic:
•Drink coffee with your breakfast or very soon after.
•Add a source of protein, carb and fat (real milk, collagen, sugar, real cream)
•Opt for decaf or low caf coffee
•Drink responsibly– limit to 1-2 cups per day.
