Fountain of youth: coffee is #1 source of antioxidants in our diet by far say scientists

Forget about eating more fish.

Skip the quinoa, the Himalayan Salt and the Goji Berries.

Drop the cup of Acai Berry juice.

There’s something better, cheaper, and within easy reach of everyone in America.

A study revealed that  COFFEE is our richest #1 source of antioxidants in the entire US diet.

According to researchers at the University of Scranton (Pa.), coffee is by far our richest source of antioxidants, bar none.

Their study was described at the 230th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society.
The key is that coffee is a tropical BEAN.  And how often do you eat beans?  Well, you’re drinking 3 cups a day of them, over 1,000 cups a year.  Beat that, chickpeas!  We’re drinking coffee day in and day out, 3 cups of it every day on average.  So the antioxidants are accumulating big time.
“Americans get more of their antioxidants from coffee than any other dietary source. Nothing else comes close,” said study leader Joe Vinson, Ph.D., a chemistry professor at the university.
