More antioxidants than coffee?

You may already know that coffee is actually a pretty good source of antioxidants. But did you know that coffee producers routinely throw out one of the MOST nutritious parts of the coffee bean?

You'll see what this is in the article below.

This article below was done by my partners at Prograde Nutrition (and nutrition researcher Jayson Hunter).

I thought it was interesting to note that conventional roasting of coffee destroys some of the important nutrients such as mannans and aribinogalactans.

But you can still benefit from these nutrients, as well as another even more potent source of antioxidants that is part of the coffee plant...

Personally, I only drink coffee once or twice a week, because I don't want to become addicted to the caffeine (instead I choose various teas which have much lower caffeine content), so this is actually how I choose to benefit from some of the most potent antioxidants in coffee (even more antioxidants than several cups of coffee) without getting overdosed on caffeine.

Ok, I've gotta run... off to the gym to get a good workout in now!
