Let's Chat, Coffee/Caffeine W/ Cannonball Coffee

Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit. This week we explore coffee and caffeine. Looking at the potential health benefits of both and taking a real good look at the science. There's A LOT! Scroll to the bottom for a ton of studies! We are joined by a special guest in Duncan of Cannonball Coffee a UK based coffee company that holds the title of selling the UK's strongest coffee. This is in terms of caffeine not taste! Here's a little more on them. Cannonball roasts the most caffeinated coffee in the UK. Hand-roasted from speciality beans - it tastes great and helps you get sh*t done.   Their coffee is really popular with people who are into fitness and optimising performance. As well as coffee, they sell natural nootropics and powdered greens - more stuff to help you have an awesome morning.   Duncan launched the brand in March 2018 after leaving the Artillery. They recently shipped their 10,000th website order.   We were super excited when Duncan approached us as this is a topic that deserves exploring especially when we look at the potential benefits. It was also great to hear the process of making super-strong coffee like where it's from, the various brewing methods that you can use and how Duncan got into all this!   If you want to grab some coffee or any products they sell and want to support the podcast at the same time then please head to https://cannonballcoffee.co.uk/ and in checkout use code PRIMAL10 for 10% off your order!

CVD: Example of effect - Risk reduced CVD mortality 19%, 16% for mortality coronary heart disease, 30% for mortality of stroke. More than 3 cups were not associated with harm but the further benefit was less pronounced.  Cancer: "High versus low coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer,39 endometrial cancer,40 melanoma,41 oral cancer,39 leukaemia,38 non-melanoma skin cancer,42 and liver cancer.43 For prostate,44 endometrial,39 melanoma,45 and liver cancer43 there were also significant linear dose-response relations indicating a benefit." Liver and Gastro outcomes: all categories of coffee exposure were associated with a lower risk for a range of liver outcomes "Any versus no coffee consumption was associated with a 29% lower risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (relative risk 0.71, 0.60 to 0.85),62 a 27% lower risk for liver fibrosis (odds ratio 0.73, 0.56 to 0.94),63 and a 39% lower risk for liver cirrhosis (0.61, 0.45 to 0.84).63"     New to the show?
