Filter coffee is a favourite beverage for many people out there. This fine coffee powder is prepared by adding roasted and ground chicory roots to the ground coffee beans. When brewed together, it gives a rich flavour and aroma, making all coffee lovers drool. Some people prefer filter coffee for its purported ability to maintain sugar levels, making it a popular choice among fitness enthusiasts.

Make your Everyday Coffee Healthy
• Try to gradually reduce refined sugar content until it is minimum to none. You can use natural sweeteners like stevia or erythritol.
• Add flavour to your coffee with antioxidants or blood sugar-lowering agents like cinnamon or cocoa.
• As an alternative to regular milk, use soy or almond milk.
• Consider pairing your beverage with healthy fat-rich snacks like nuts or power seeds to avoid a drop in sugar levels.

Various studies have shown that filter coffee improves glycemic metabolism and the glucose curve by sensitising insulin. Coffee is also proven beneficial for the heart as it reduces the risk of cardiovascular disorders. Overall, it is a great beverage that has got everything from weight management to maintaining heart and brain health.
