In our busy and super-productive society, coffee has become a basic staple in our diets, our habits and our social opportunities. Meeting for coffee is a starting point for sharing and exchanging ideas with all kinds of audiences – from work meetings, to first dates, to friendly updates. We use coffee to get our day started, but also to unwind and give us the break we need.
In the majority of times, we use coffee’s properties in an instinctual way – we know it gives us energy and makes us more focused - but to better understand it allows us to take advantage of the substance in a smart and more effective way.
The Clean Living Company has been researching ways to transform your coffee time into more healthy and nutritious moment. We've partnered with our friends at Broomfield Coffee to select the best and purest ingredients and understanding how caffeine works in your body, we can help you achieve the same effects, but with added benefits.
Coffee Boosts Your Brain
We start with coffee’s most famous property: its capacity to boost brain function and make us feel more alert.
It’s the classic “Have you had your coffee yet?”. This feeling of being awake is a result of coffee’s antioxidant properties which improve neurotransmitter performance and cognitive function. Healthier brain cells and higher activity help us to better process and retain information (memory) and might even be a reliable substance to help treat and prevent strokes, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease as they facilitate neuron connection and pathways.
Coffee Boosts Your Performance
Coffee gets you going…literally.
The effects of caffeine on the central nervous system are legendary. It boosts the adrenaline levels in your blood, burning fat more efficiently and improving your physical performance. Coffee also increases the levels of serotonin and dopamine – the happy hormones - which make you feel good and help you face the challenges in your day.
Coffee can be a great ally in the fight against depression and give you the energy you need to change up your life. For that same reason, coffee can have a negative effect on sleep patterns if you don’t give enough time for your body to process the caffeine (approximately 6 hours).
Alternatively, you can switch to decaf in the afternoons to keep the positive properties of coffee without affecting your sleep.We would recommend you look out for Swiss Water Processed (SWP) on the label, as most other decaf coffee processes use unhealthy chemicals and often leave enough caffeine in the beans to disrupt your sleep.
Coffee Is A Natural Anti-Diabetic & Can Help With Weight Loss
One of the many positive effects of coffee is that it decreases your insulin sensitivity and impairs glucose tolerance making it a natural anti-diabetic (type 2).
With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels. Coffee will help combat that by controlling blood sugar fluctuations and reducing craving for sweet or fatty snacks. That allows you to better manage your appetite and in consequence, shed some extra weight.
Invest In The Best with Clean Living's Organic Whole Bean Coffee
Coffee is good for the brain, the mind, and the body, but it's important for us to always be mindful of the quality of the product you are consuming.
Coffee can often be of uncertain origin and mixed with other impurities that result in toxicity. For us, the source of the ingredients we use on our products is our number one priority, which is why we invest in the best when selecting raw material.
Understanding the importance of coffee in our daily lives and how it can be combined with our supplements for a more balanced diet led us to partner with our friends at Broomfield Coffee Company to launch our first Organic Whole Bean Coffee.
Our Organic, Fairtrade, and Rainforest Alliance origin Clean Living Coffee is sourced from Honduras – the biggest coffee producer in Central America and one of the top ten producers worldwide – but most importantly from individual smallholder farmers, whose goal is to produce high-quality coffee in an ethical and sustainable manner. The natural environment it grows on gives us a clean and smooth coffee, with bright acidity, mellow body and a caramel finish with notes of golden syrup, lemon and a buttery mouthfeel.
Drinking pre-ground coffee contains more free radicals than when it is freshly ground, which can contribute to oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. In other words, the freshness of the coffee is directly proportionate to the benefit. Imagine slicing open an apple and leaving if for a day or two - this in theory is what happens to your coffee once its ground and not consumed while fresh. On top of this, fresh beans keep their flavour longer as the essential oils do not evaporate as with pre-grounded.
Best quality + best taste. Impossible to resist.
Power-Combos To Transform Your Coffee
Coffee + Keto Collagen
When you add Clean Living’s Keto Collagen Powder to your coffee, you're transforming it into a more nutritious and healthier alternative, as the Collagen helps your body boost its natural protein levels.
As we get older, collagen production declines and that's why skin loses its elasticity, wrinkles appear, joints stiffen, and bones weaken. One daily scoop of Keto Collagen Powder (MCT Blend) mixed into your coffee makes up for the body's inability to retain natural levels and provides structure to skin, bones, tendons, fibrous cartilage, connective tissue and teeth. In can also improve gut health and generate quick energy to the body.

Coffee + MCT Oil Powder
If apart from a wholesome diet you are also looking to shed some extra weight, you should think of adding Clean Living's MCT Oil Powder to your coffee and enhance its natural weight loss properties.
Derived from coconut oil, our MCT Oil Powder is easily digested and offers several health benefits. It can increase the release of the hormones Peptide YY and Leptin, which give you a feeling of fullness - a benefit for those wanting to lose weight.
Our MCT supplement metabolizes into ketones and will make your coffee an instant source of energy to help you through your day and diet as it decreases the glucose swings that can lead you to crave sugary snacks. It can also be mixed with our collagen powders and it makes a good alternative to dairy products when creating your perfect coffee.
