Why is Decaf Italian Coffee Better?

Did you know that although coffee was discovered in Ethiopia, it was first adopted by Italians and then introduced to the whole of Europe and all the colonies linked with it?

Cappuccino, Macchiato, Maraschino, Espresso- all of these coffees that we consume on a daily basis have their roots dug deep into the roots of Italy, branching out the comfort from their shade on top of Americans.

Well if you consume coffee as regularly as half the American population, you’ve probably heard people telling you to choose the decaf over the caffeinated one. 

Why do they say this? Let’s find out:

1. Lower chances of cardiovascular diseases

Replacing your usage of your regular coffee with decaffeinated Italian coffee will allow you to reduce the chances of cardiovascular diseases. A study conducted by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, discovered that the consumption of decaf Italian coffee was directly connected with a decrease in cardiovascular disease mortality. So if you wish to sustain the health of your heart, it is best to switch from caf to decaf. (You can review this study in the ‘Annals of Internal Medicine’ issue of the January 2008 publication.)

2. Gout

When uric acids accumulate in the joints, it results in inflammatory arthritis which we medically know as Gout. Although gout is discovered in both, males and females, it is mostly found in men. Researchers at the University of British Columbia and the Harvard School of Medicine studied the effects of decaf Italian coffee on men with respect to the chances of gout. In the published report, it was found that men consuming at least four cups of decaffeinated, authentic Italian coffee actually significantly cut down their chances of developing gout compared to those who abstain from consuming coffee at all.(You can review this study in the ‘Arthritis & Rheumatism’ issue of the May 2007 publication).

3. Diabetes Type 2

Consumption of decaffeinated Italian coffee reduces the chances of developing diabetes type 2. Diabetes type 2 is a condition where your pancreas fails to generate adequate levels of insulin or your cells fail to react to the insulin hormones. This type of diabetes increases the risks of health issues in your body such as chronic inflammation, kidney failure and cardiovascular diseases. In a 2009 study, the scientists at University of Sydney revealed the effects of decaffeinated Italian coffee suggesting those individuals who consumed decaf coffee were actually less likely to develop such a diabetic condition.

(You can review this study in the ‘Archives of Internal Medicine’ issue of the December 2009 publication).

With all these benefits of decaffeinated Italian coffee, it is only wise to switch as soon as possible since there isn’t any significant difference in the taste and quality. Although decaf coffee isn’t entirely caffeine-free, it does have less caffeine compared to caffeinated coffee. You can instantly get your hands on first-class quality of decaf Italian espresso from supermarketitaly, the finest Italian grocery store in town!
