Today, we’ll discuss coffee. While browsing a renowned Candida-focused website, I came across a statement advising against coffee consumption. The reasons mentioned were: caffeine spikes blood sugar, weakens the adrenals, impairs the immune system, and contains mold. It even suggests that decaf coffee isn’t exempt as it still contains residual caffeine.
However, at CanXida, we believe that a moderate consumption of coffee can be beneficial. In fact, there’s nothing wrong with indulging in one or two cups a day, especially in the morning. This is because caffeine aligns well with our body’s natural cortisol levels which are high during the early hours. Consuming coffee in the morning can provide a beneficial boost to the body.
It’s essential, however, to exercise moderation. Continuous intake, especially driven by adrenal weaknesses, can hint at underlying adrenal fatigue. Even for those with significant fatigue or burnout, maintaining coffee intake at a minimum, particularly one enjoyable cup in the morning, can lead to recovery. We suggest the optimal time for a coffee is before 11 a.m. If you feel like drinking beverages throughout the day, alternatives like lemongrass tea, herb teas, or green teas can be considered.
Adhering to stringent prohibitions or excessive indulgences in anything can be detrimental. For instance, depriving oneself can sometimes lead to binging on sugary foods or alcohol. A small amount of coffee over time, if enjoyed without additives like sugar, can be perfectly fine. It’s essential not to get swayed by extreme views and adopt a balanced approach.
