Coffee, brewed from grounds, is known to increase insulin sensitivity and improve glucose metabolism. Caffeine in coffee helps to improve alertness and energy levels without causing a rapid rise in blood glucose levels. The relationship between coffee consumption and glucose control may vary. It depends on individual factors, including how you drink coffee and with what.

Optimising Coffee (Brewed From Grounds) for Better Glucose Control
• Consider adding non-dairy unsweetened milk or cream to coffee. This can help slow down the absorption of caffeine and reduce its negative impact on blood glucose levels.
• Consider drinking coffee with a meal or snack that contains protein and fibre to help regulate blood sugar levels.
• Try using a smaller cup to control the amount of coffee consumed.
• You may want to experiment with decaf coffee. It contains beneficial compounds that may improve glucose metabolism and eliminate caffeine’s adverse effects.

Coffee, brewed from grounds, contains other beneficial compounds such as antioxidants and polyphenols. These may improve glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity. Therefore, it is essential to optimise coffee consumption. Consider adding full-fat milk or cream from a grass-fed cow or coconut milk or coconut cream to enhance the benefits of brewed coffee.
