Why should you drink your coffee with plant-based drink?

Coffee can have positive effects on our body, this is no brain. But a group of Researchers from the Institute for Molecular Biosciences at the University of Graz  (Austria) have come to this following conclusion.

Coffee is better than its reputation.

Coffee has long had the reputation of being bad for your health. It was suspected of raising blood pressure, harming the stomach and dehydrating the body. Not to mention sleep disorders and circulatory problems.

From a scientific perspective, there is nothing wrong with drinking several cups of coffee a day if you tolerate it well. While new positive effects of coffee are constantly being proven, such as its hepatoprotective effect, there is bad news for lovers of milky coffee.

It’s better to give up milky coffee

Certain positive effects of coffee are prevented when it is consumed together with animal protein. Researchers from the Institute for Molecular Biosciences at the University of Graz came to this conclusion. They research cell-cleaning processes, the so-called autophagy. “It’s a type of self-digestive program that cleans and detoxifies the cells. This cellular waste disposal is mainly triggered by controlled fasting”, says one of the study authors, Prof Dr Frank Madeo.

Coffee is an autophagy trigger, even when not fasting. Good news for all coffeeholics!

Scientists recommend plant-based drink

However, further findings led researchers to the conclusion that coffee should be drunk with plant-based drink or black. Animal proteins can inhibit the autophagy process, thus cancelling out the effect of the coffee.

Professor Madeo recommends:

“So drink coffee with a clear conscience, but preferably black or with plant-based drink.”

Despite what many can say, they are right for coffee lovers. They are particularly good in coffee because they are especially mild and they can be completely sugar-free!
