Have we got you intrigued? To find out how you can get more out of your daily coffee routine, read Accredited Dietitian and Body Science Athlete, Harriet Walker’s BSc Clean Coffee review below.
Clean Coffee takes your regular morning cup of coffee and makes it better. Body Science has developed Clean Coffee to contain a range of specially selected functional ingredients to enhance cognitive function and overall health.
But, how? The coffee base is a single-origin Colombian coffee blend that has been naturally sweetened with a touch of Thaumatin, a sweet-tasting protein extracted from the tropical Katemfe fruit. Each sachet of Clean Coffee contains a standardised caffeine dose (120mg) and a therapeutic dose of lemon balm extract, Bluenesse©, which has been clinically tested for its ability to enhance mood, concentration and working memory.
Apple cider vinegar is suggested to improve blood sugar regulation, gut health and feelings of fullness, which can assist with weight management. However, a common complaint is the taste, which is why Clean Coffee contains apple cider vinegar’s incredible benefits, minus the sour taste. To assist with boosting energy, Clean Coffee contains MCT oil, a type of fat which, due to it’s more simple structure, is easily used as energy by the body and is especially useful for those following a low carbohydrate or keto diet.
Clean Coffee is a functional beverage that takes the known health benefits of coffee and raises the bar, with the inclusion of clinically tested compounds, such as the calming and memory-boosting Bluenesse© extract, apple cider vinegar and MCT oils to maximise your morning health routine.
Functional foods are about taking food you may usually enjoy daily and enhancing its properties. As the research on the neuroprotective and enhancing properties of foods, herbs and other individual compounds advances, there is a very exciting opportunity to harness these findings to create innovative health products. Body Science has been a market leader in this area, working alongside the companies developing the clinically tested compounds to ensure that the ingredients are true to label and at a therapeutic dose.
Amongst the health-enhancing ingredients of Clean Coffee, two main components can help to boost your metabolism:
Caffeine is well known for its metabolism-boosting and fat mobilising properties. It increases the metabolic rate by increasing heat production in the body and also ramps up the production of the hormone, adrenalin, which further increases energy output. It is believed that doses between 100-200mg of caffeine can increase metabolism in the hours after consumption, which may assist those trying to lose weight in combination with changes to diet and increased exercise. Beyond the thermic effect, caffeine also helps you feel more awake and reduces feelings of fatigue while exercising, which makes Clean Coffee a great natural addition to your pre-training routine.
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are readily used as energy by the body and are also suggested to assist with weight loss. Although the picture is not fully clear, it is believed their addition to a healthy calorie-controlled diet can help with weight loss by increasing daily energy expenditure and by increasing the feeling of fullness when added to a meal, thus helping to reduce your daily calorie consumption.
Clean Coffee is an easy substitute for your usual daily cup of coffee (hot or cold), while providing a host of additional health benefits. Plus, the sachets are convenient and perfect for transporting effortlessly, whether you’re travelling, at work or hitting the gym.
