Air roasted or lightly roasted, organic coffee is the one recommended for coffee enemas since it has the most palmitate. Dark roasted coffee is not recommended as it has less palmitate. This substance helps with the production of antioxidants, such as glutathione. This is why it is important to retain as many palmitates as possible.
So, why not use green coffee beans instead? First of all, green coffee beans are hard to blend into a fine powder. However, the main reason due to which green coffee extract are given a pass is because it shunts the methylation process in the body. It is still not proven if the green coffee beans have a similar reaction as green coffee extract, but it is better to avoid it. While performing the coffee enema, it is very important to get the right type of enema. Using organic, air roasted coffee beans is the best option to use.
Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits of coffee enema
Coffee has a lot of antioxidants, like cafestol and kahweol, which are the palmitate compounds that may boost the natural detoxifying abilities of a person. Even when consumed via the mouth, coffee may increase the level of glutathione in the blood by a small percentage- the less roasted coffee, the better the results.
During roasting, even if the percentage of caffeine stays the same, alterations may occur in its composition which degrades all of its natural benefits. Based on a study published in 2017, to get the most anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidant effect, make sure the coffee you are using is less processed and air roasted.
Coffee is also known to have an anti-carcinogenic effect which means it helps in preventing cancer. as per a 1991 study, the tumors of female rats and hamsters reduced up to 40% when they were fed green coffee beans.
The palmitates in coffee are responsible for increasing the content of glutathione in the body, but drinking coffee with palmitates and administering it as an enema is not the same. The palmitates get used by the body and get broken down during the digestive process. Similarly, the caffeine ingested while drinking coffee could be difficult on your adrenal glands. The caffeine does not affect your adrenal when taken in through an enema.
Studies have proved that coffee has hepatoprotective properties, meaning it can protect against the development of liver diseases such as hepatitis and cirrhosis. Due to all these protective properties, coffee enemas also help with reducing discomfort, if you deal with chronic pain.
