Green Coffee Bean Benefits

We’ve heard of green tea and we’ve heard of coffee, but few people have ever heard of green coffee! They are coffee beans from Coffea fruit that haven’t been roasted yet and thus have a higher amount of chlorogenic acid, antioxidants and other compounds. Despite it being under the radar, there are actually an overwhelming amount of benefits that come from green coffee for your hair, skin and overall health. Here are seven huge benefits, to name a few:

1)    Green coffee extract is extremely popular to help combat weight loss. It boosts our metabolism by increasing our Basal Metabolic Rate, burns extra fat and works as an appetite suppressor so you won’t be craving that midnight snack!

2)    Helps fight against poor cholesterol by lowering levels of Low-Density Lipoproteins (LDL).

3)    Helps prevent blood from being clotted and improves natural blood circulation flow.

4)    Cleanses our livers and works as a natural detoxifier.

5)    Boosts concentration levels and energy so we don’t have to depend on those five cups of chai to get us through the day!

6)    Builds up the immune system.

7)    Helps to moisturize the skin and fight against baldness, keeping hair strong and healthy.

Learn The Truth About Your (Dangerous) Laundry Detergent

While our typical laundry detergents are making our clothes seem fresh and clean, they may actually be doing much more harm than good. Very few people know just how dangerous regular laundry detergents can be so we thought that it was important for us to tell you! Here are seven reasons why they can be toxic:

  1. The fragrances which seem to smell so nice are actually synthetic and has: formaldehyde which is a chemical compound known to cause cancer in animals, other carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) and phthalates which have shown negative effects on reproductive health and respiratory system.
  2. Most detergents have optical brighteners (additives that add blue light, making whites seem whiter) which stay in the clothes long after washing and can cause skin irritation.
  3. The chemicals have a negative effect on the environment, contributing to water pollution in particular.
  4. Laundry detergent manufacturers don’t have to list all ingredients on packaging, so you have no idea what chemicals they could be adding and whether or not they’re hazardous.
  5. Fabric softeners are designed to stay in the clothes after washing which means continuous contact between chemicals and the skin.
  6. Chlorine bleach (found in most detergents) when going down drain can produce organochlorines which can create problems for reproductive and neurological systems.
  7. Majority of products never been tested so we have no idea if they are actually safe to use or not.

Organic 101: Benefits Of Organic Products

Today we are seeing more and more products with “organic” stickers plastered on them, hearing friends gush about their new organic cosmetics and reading people boast on Facebook about how they’ve switched their diets to only organic and gluten-free food. Yet, amongst this significant increase in popularity for going organic, people are left wondering what it even means. So, let’s break it down with some Organic 101:


What is Organic?

The simple definition of the term is: food and products made without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, dyes and other artificial chemicals. Not using these artificial products helps to improve the quality of the food produced and decreases the risk of contamination.

Organic farmers often swap out chemical fertilizers with natural ones such as manure and compost and instead of synthetic pesticides and herbicides use more natural methods like using insects and birds, crop rotation, mulching, hand weeding etc.


Not only are plants treated more naturally, but so are the animals and livestock raised for eggs, poultry, meat, and dairy products. They must have access to the outdoors and are not fed any regulating hormones, drugs, antibiotics or genetically modified feed. This organic farming helps to ensure that the food eventually reaching our mouths is more clean and pure, with less chemicals altering its natural state.

“Organic agriculture is a systems approach to production that is working towards environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production.” says the Department for Agriculture and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

What are the Benefits for Me?

So now that we know what organic means, it’s important to understand to the benefits! Here are some of the top reasons organic food and products are good for your health:

  •   They are easier for the body to break down in comparison to the chemicals and metals found inside the fertilizers used on inorganic products.
  •   They have more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (substances that help in preventing types of cell damage).
  •   Reduces exposure in your body to the residue from pesticides and chemicals.
  •   They are fresher due to the lack of preservatives.
  •   Taste better because of the care given to the soil and plants!
  •   Food labeled as organic undergoes a certification process so you can be sure no toxic chemicals are sneaking in there.

What are the Benefits for the Environment?

Not only is organic food good for you, but great for the environment too. Here are some of the main reasons why:

  •   Increases biodiversity: fewer chemicals are used that harm bees and other insects.
  •   Improves soil condition: uses manure/compost rather than pesticides which may damage soil.
  •   Helps to preserve natural habitats and local wildlife.
  •   Keeps water clean: stops the polluted runoff that goes into water from farms using with harmful pesticides, fertilizers and toxic animal waste.
  •   Help in fight against global warming: most organically produced food is distributed locally so less energy/carbon dioxide emissions are used in the transportation.

Looking at all the benefits, it’s easy to understand why people may be throwing out their artificial food and beauty products in exchange for organic ones.
