Avoid Coffee Stains and Enjoy the Health Benefits

Coffee Stains, History, and Health

People often have a steaming cup of coffee in the morning to get themselves ready for the day. But beyond a morning boost and having to scrub off pesky coffee stains, what else do we know about where coffee comes from?

Middle Eastern legend attributes the discovery of coffee to a goat herder named Kaldi, who noticed how energetic the berries from the Coffea tree made his herd. He showed the berries to monks at a local monastery, and they are said to have brewed the first cup from the roasted grounds of berries that had been tossed into a fire.

Coffee has since became one of the most consumed drinks in the world. Over 400 billion cups are made every day, and coffee houses are still considered popular hubs for social gatherings.

New research has shown that coffee can do more than keep you alert and energized, it has positive effects on our health! It can reduce the risk of cancer, gallstones, and diabetes.

But while coffee is reported to have many added health benefits to regular consumption, it’s not very good for your teeth. Without proper moderation or dental care, coffee can cause tooth decay, cavities, and stains on your teeth.

So what are the added health benefits of coffee, and how can Brighter Image Lab fix coffee stains on your teeth?

Coffee and You

Researchers have found many ways in which coffee affects our health, but majority of them are actually good! Reports from places like the Harvard School for Public Health showcase exactly how coffee can be beneficial to our health.

The Good

Cancer

New studies show that coffee can actually prevent and slow some cancers! Regular coffee drinkers have been reported to be 26% less likely to develop colon cancer. Endometrial and Liver cancers were also seen to be less prevalent in coffee consumers.

Depression

Consumption of coffee has been linked to lower levels of depression. Research on individuals who drink 2-4 cups of coffee were 25% less likely to experience depression, and 45% less likely to be at risk for suicide.

Diabetes

Habitual coffee drinkers have shown a decreased chance in developing type 2 diabetes. Researchers theorize that minerals like magnesium found in coffee help the body process insulin and metabolize sugars naturally.

Gallstones 

Gallstones are hardened pieces of digestive fluid in your gallbladder. It’s theorized that coffee helps prevent these stones from forming by helping flush and break up crystalized cholesterol, and a 10 year study on men and women found a significant decrease in gallstones among regular coffee drinkers.

Heart

Coffee is high in antioxidants, and has shown great reductions in heart disease and stroke among those who regularly consume coffee. Antioxidants help remove harmful chemicals in the body left over from the breakdown of food.

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease affects specific dopamine producing brain neurons. Although more research is needed, recent studies have found that higher consumption of coffee can reduce the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease because the caffeine in coffee protects dopamine producing brain cells.

The Bad

While coffee can keep you alert during the day, high levels of caffeine have negative effects on the body. As with most good things, moderation is key to enjoying the benefits of coffee. But what can too much do?

Anxiety and a rapid heart rate are common for those who are sensitive to caffeine, or have consumed too much. The chemicals in coffee that keep you from feeling tired also triggers the release of adrenaline, raising your heart rate and anxiety levels. Caffeine-Induced Anxiety is even recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as one of four coffee related mental health issues.

Insomnia and fatigue are also prevalent in those who consume too much coffee. Caffeine can stay in the system for four to five hours, and any amount of missed sleep can add up quickly.

Lastly, coffee is a diuretic. This means that coffee contains laxative properties than can cause issues with digestion, especially for those who suffer from gastric reflux. Making sure to eat solid, healthy foods and drink plenty of water can help prevent coffee from causing digestive issues.

The Ugly

Coffee contains tannins, which is found in many plant based foods. Tannins bind color to the teeth, which is what allows things like coffee, wine, and blueberries to stain.

Over time, tannins can turn teeth a dull yellow color, and without proper cleaning can result in cavities and tooth decay. Sugary versions of coffee are especially bad at stripping the enamel from your teeth, allowing stains to set into the tooth itself.

A bad smile can have a negative affect on your life, both socially and mentally. And regular brushing won’t always clear up those set in stains, or get hard to reach places where cavities can grow.

Seeing a dentist to whiten and clean your teeth can be expensive, but thankfully Brighter Image Lab has created an alternative solution for those with coffee stained teeth. Our lab direct system lets you get a whiter smile without breaking the bank.

Say Goodbye to Coffee Stains!

Coffee has a number of added health benefits that you shouldn’t have to give up just because it can stain your teeth. With the Brighter Image Lab Bilistic Smile Care system, you can now professionally clean and bleach your teeth from the comfort of your own home.

The Bilistic Smile Care kit comes with our Bilistic Pro-Series Sonic cleaner, two black infusion trays, detox serum, bleaching gel, and quality dental tools to help you get the best possible smile.

Getting your teeth whitened by a dentist is expensive, and most over the counter whitening products have you bleaching built up plaque and tartar.

That’s why the Bilistic Smile Care kit comes with a full cleaning kit along with our bleaching gel. Our detox serum is a proprietary blend meant to loosen hardened tartar and calculus build up, and using our Sonic Cleaner helps give your teeth a dentist quality cleaning.

Don’t settle for less, coffee stains can be a thing of the past with Brighter Image Lab.

Conclusion

Coming all the way from Ethiopia, coffee has become a staple of most people’s diet. But despite the many beneficial health reasons for drinking coffee, it can be bad for our oral health. Brighter Image Lab has created an alternative smile solution to make sure your smile never stays dull.
