5 Health Benefits of Organic Coffee

April 20, 2021 2 min read

So you’re thinking about switching to organic? Well, if you’re drinking Grounds & Hounds Coffee, congratulations, you’ve already made the switch. All of our coffees are 100% organic! But if you haven’t made the leap yet, here are 5 good health reasons you should.

  1. No Pesticides

Traditional coffee plants may be sprayed with all manner of chemicals to protect the plant from insects. Coffees labeled as organic are forbidden from using pesticides, so you’ll know that your organic coffee plants were never doused in any harmful chemicals.

  1. No Synthetic Fertilizers

Like with pesticides, organic coffee growers are forbidden from using synthetic fertilizers. Since none of those synthetic chemicals are in the soil, that means there’s zero chance they end up in your cup.

  1. More Antioxidants

Studies of organic vs. traditional coffee have shown the organic coffees tend to contain more of the helpful antioxidants your body needs. Antioxidants combat free radicals in your body, which will help prevent or delay cell damage in your body.

  1. More Vitamins

It may not be much, but many organic certified coffees have been shown to contain trace amounts of various helpful B vitamins, such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and pantothenic acid. Hey, every little bit counts!

  1. Peace of Mind

Organic coffees are grown in a sustainable manner that is better for the planet, the farmers and the surrounding communities. That knowledge can be pretty beneficial to your mental health, knowing that your coffee consumption is being done in the most responsible possible way. So drink up, worry free.

If you haven’t already, it’s time to make the switch to organic. And the easiest way is to shop Grounds & Hounds. 100% organic across the board – and all of it helps rescue pups!
