ORAC Tea Uses the Coffee Cherry, a Truly Remarkable Ingredient
To make our tea, which is a healthy brain drink, we use an ingredient called the coffee fruit, also known as the coffee berry or coffee cherry. Coffee beans are technically seeds of the coffee cherry; in most cases the bean is extracted and the rest is discarded. However, this discarded material can actually be used to make a nutritious, refreshing tea, which tastes very different from a cup of coffee.
This ingredient makes a fruity, flavorful tea, known as “cascara tea.” It has a sweet yet refreshing appeal, with hints of flowers, cherry, and even mango. Not only is it flavorful, but there are many indications that it’s extremely beneficial to our health.
Health Benefits of a Coffee Cherry
There are numerous health benefits that have been linked to the coffee cherry. An article from Dr. Health Benefits notes that the ingredient has been linked to protection against diabetes while supporting liver health. It has also been discussed as a potential option for promoting brain health and could even enhance immunity. It’s believed that the ingredient could increase the activity of immune cells, creating a more robust and active immune system. For brain power, it’s possible that the ingredient could enhance the levels of proteins in the brain, keeping them healthier for a longer period.
The ingredient has also been linked to cancer-fighting properties; it was discovered that tumor growth was slowed when in lab mice who consumed coffee cherries.
