Dig up our bones

inflammatory effects of coffee

We are sure you don’t NEED a reason to drink Dead Sled Coffee. But should you need two, we have them for you. But did you know that coffee is actually good for your bones?

“For all those folks who drink lots of coffee and are concerned about the health effects of coffee, this is good news,” said Dr. Chad Deal of Cleveland Clinic, who did not take part in the study, in a press release. “It appears to show that coffee is, in general, probably good for bone health.”

But what about the kind of coffee you drink? A study in the Journal of Medicinal Food analyzed coffees of different roasting levels. The researchers found that, while they both have plenty of antioxidants, light roast coffee has more than dark roast.

These results make sense: Darker roasts are exposed to air for longer during the roasting process, and oxidation depletes the antioxidant molecules present in the coffee.

Next question we’re sure you are about to ask is, ‘So, what Dead Sled Coffee is highest in Antioxidants then?’

Dead Sled doesn’t currently offer a ‘Light Roast’. But our lightest would be either our Vampira or our Oddities blend. Both are specialty grade single origin coffees. And…all the heath stuff aside-they just taste amazing.
