A groundbreaking Vascular Medicine Ikaria study suggests that boiled Greek coffee may increase your longevity and protect against heart disease. Dr. Oz aired a special on what makes Greek coffee more beneficial than American coffee and talks about the medicinal benefits with Chris Kilham – Medicine Hunter. Later in the special, Dr. Oz is shown how to boil the coffee with Greek coffee expert grandmother: Nouly Lolis.
The brewing method, concentration of antioxidants, and most importantly, richness in Chlorogenic acids, are what makes Greek coffee superior.
Chlorogenic acids are beneficial to cardiovascular health, reducing the risk of diabetes, controlling weight and reducing the risk of certain cancers. The name comes from the Greek χλωρός (light green) and -γένος (a suffix meaning “giving rise to”), because of the green color produced when chlorogenic acids are oxidized.
Greek coffee surprisingly contains a little less caffeine than regular coffee and less is consumed per cup. So, drink up!
