HealthSMART ™

 

The HEALTHIEST Coffee…Ever

Through extensive testing, HealthSMART Coffee has developed an all natural TechnoRoasting™ process which seals-in and maximizes the high vitamin, mineral, antioxidant and dietary fiber contained in the coffee beans, while neutralizing all of the excess heartburn causing pH acid. TechnoRoasting also eliminates all of the bitterness in coffee so that it can be consumed black, without the use of creamers or sweeteners. Therefore, fats, calories and cholesterol can be eliminated from the diet.

HealthSMART coffee is the most potent, bio-available nutritional coffee…ever!  Each brewed mug delivers between 4.3% and 22% of the  DV (Daily Value) for 12 vitamins and minerals making it healthier than any other coffee. HealthSMART coffee also contains more antioxidants than any other coffee and Management expects it will eventually become known as the richest source of antioxidants in the diet.

The TechnoRoasting process also gives birth “to other compounds that are even better for your health” and HealthSMART coffee contains hundreds of micro-nutrients and minerals.  We know that HealthSMART coffee contains high concentrations of Chlorogenic Acid and Glycemic Acid and numerous other antioxidants.  We haven’t even begun to test for all of the beneficial constituents of HealthSMART coffee.

HealthSMART coffee beans are uniquely fertilized and contain substantial trace minerals which contribute to good health. Drinking HealthSMART coffee is one way we can start to regain the abundant vitamins and minerals once naturally found in our food supply.  When the body is deficient in minerals, it extracts them from storage sites in the bones to replenish them in the blood and muscles and to maintain the proper intercellular fluid concentration. Therefore, the essential minerals contained in each brewed mug of HealthSMART coffee are vital for your health.

As a result of our TechnoRoasting process,  HealthSMART coffee also contains soluble bioactive compounds such as:  phenolics, chlorogenic acids, caffeine, lactones, niacin and the minerals potassium, iron, and zinc.  In addition, there are hundreds of volatiles which stimulate the brain, cause pleasure, and heighten the sense of smell.

 

CALCIUM

Most people have calcium deficient diets, less than 10% of women have adequate intake. Calcium is essential to maintaining total body health.  Calcium is the most abundant mineral in bone. Sufficient Calcium reduces the risk of bone fracture and plays an established role in protecting and enhancing bone health and density. Calcium plays other important roles in the body. It helps regulate muscular contractions and plays a role in normal nerve functioning, blood-vessel expansion and contraction, and hormone and enzyme secretion. When dietary calcium intake falls short, calcium is pulled from its storage site in bone to meet the demands of the body and keep calcium in blood, muscle and intercellular fluids within a constant concentration. Good calcium nutrition throughout life is essential for achieving peak bone mass and preventing deficiency-related bone loss. Increased and it is imperative for slowing bone loss in adults. Inadequate calcium significantly contributes to the development of osteoporosis.

Studies have also suggested that ensuring an adequate amount of calcium and magnesium in the diet is important to protect against high blood pressure, as well as for general health. There is also evidence to support its role in weight management, muscle function and energy metabolism.

MAGNESIUM

The deficiency of this nutrient is prominent, 72% of the adult Americans fall short of the DV for magnesium.  Magnesium is responsible for over 300 process in the body.  While best known for its role in muscle and nerve function, it also supports heart and bone health and is frequently paired with calcium.  Researchers say a cup of coffee helps a higher number of people gain complete relief from “tension headaches”.  A magnesium deficiency is associated with constricted blood vessels in the head.

 

Magnesium influences many bodily processes, including digestion, energy production, muscle function, bone formation, creation of new cells, the activation of B-vitamins   causes the relaxation of muscles, as well as assisting in the functions of the heart, kidneys, adrenals, brain and nervous system. The lack of sufficient available magnesium in the body can interfere with any or all of these processes. Magnesium is vital to energy in the form of ATP which is present in all living tissue, and provides energy for processes such as muscle contraction, through the process of cellular respiration.

Calcium excites nerves while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax. Calcium is needed for blood clotting but magnesium keeps the blood flowing freely. To ward off the negative effects of a prolonged period of stress or over-reaction to stress, calcium needs to be balanced with adequate amounts of magnesium. Going through a stressful period without sufficient magnesium can set up a deficit that, if not corrected, can linger, causing more stress and further health problems. Today we have diets dangerously low in magnesium.  Magnesium is as important as calcium in the prevention of osteoporosis and is crucial to increasing bone mass.  Insulin is the hormone that helps with the regulation of glucose (sugar) metabolism. Magnesium has been found to improve insulin’s response to dietary sugar and to improve the action of insulin in regulating blood sugar levels.  Magnesium is an essential nutrient for all living things. Along with calcium and phosphorus, magnesium is considered a major element in human nutrition, as opposed to the trace elements such as Fe, Zn, Cr, Se, etc., and is one of the four electrolytes along with calcium (Ca), sodium (Na), and potassium (K).  At the cellular level, magnesium joins with the other electrolyte ions in a cell-controlling dance. These ions are carefully and meticulously separated in living cells: calcium and sodium ions, for the most part, are kept outside cells while magnesium and potassium ions are kept mainly inside cells. While it was estimated years ago that magnesium was a required cofactor for over 300 enzyme systems, that number is now more reliably estimated at 700 – 800.  Energy in the form of the Mg-ATP complex is necessary to maintain this ionic “packaging” as well as to alter it in a regulated way when warranted. Magnesium has been called “nature’s physiological calcium channel blocker”. When this “blocker” function is breached or when magnesium becomes depleted within the cell from its normal level, calcium rises inside the cell.

This altered state results in a change in the intracellular Mg:Ca ratio, which appears to have an impact on cell function. For example, a lower-than-normal Mg:Ca ratio.
● In blood vessel smooth muscle cells—causes vasoconstriction, arterial stiffness, and/or hypertension;
● In heart cells—causes enlargement (hypertrophy);

● In blood platelet cells—causes increased aggregation, stickiness and clotting;
● Makes fat and skeletal muscle cells less able to respond to insulin (insulin resistance);
● Causes pancreatic beta cells to produce more insulin (causing hyperinsulinemia);
● Increases nerve cell activity as well as the response of endocrine tissues.
In a life-threatening crisis, such reactions are warranted, necessary and can be life-saving as they allow for performance with unusual strength and speed. Indeed, all these cellular responses to a low Mg:Ca cellular ratio can be aspects of the stress response or “fight-or-flight” reaction.  In healthy individuals, when the stress or crisis is over, magnesium increases inside cells to its normal level, its calcium blocker function is restored, calcium moves back outside cells reestablishing normal electrolyte “packaging”, and the stress response subsides. However, when these responses to a lower-than-normal Mg:Ca ratio are a result of a magnesium nutritional deficiency state, some predictable disease states can occur.  Many symptoms which trace back to lack of metabolism are caused by either vitamin and mineral deficiency or imbalance. There are at least twenty-two different diseases and symptoms for which scientific proof exists of being caused by magnesium deficiency.

“If you cook and process foods in any way, you lose magnesium.”

The hidden cause of calcium deficiency is due to calcium not being assimilated by the body due to a lack of Magnesium. Without a proper balance of these two minerals, magnesium gets depleted, which will result in the negative effects associated with lack of magnesium and a buildup of unassimilated calcium. Calcium needs magnesium and the body needs both. It is vital to keep these minerals in balance. Too little magnesium to balance calcium can be both uncomfortable and unhealthy.

POTASSIUM

Sub acute potassium insufficiency is much harder to discern and may be much more prevalent than we think.  Thus, for the most part, we need to get potassium from our diets. With the exception of people with kidney disorders, it is difficult to get too much potassium from food sources. All fruits and vegetables have an abundance of potassium, and are great for people seeking to boost their levels. Deficiency can also be caused by excessive fluid loss from sweat, vomiting, diarrhea, diuretics or laxatives. Symptoms of potassium deficiency may be fatigue, muscle weakness, confusion and irritability—all of which are fairly nonspecific

Potassium is an important nutrient for health. It is the major positive ion inside cells and is thus important for maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. It is also important in neuron function.

Note: Some coffees, primarily bottled, contain vitamins and minerals which are added to already roasted coffee beans, making the end product a Nutraceutical or Fortified beverage. According to researchers, these additives don’t appear to perform as well as the natural vitamins and minerals occurring in the unroasted coffee beans.  In addition, no one knows the strength of added vitamins and minerals after they’ve sat around in a warehouse or on stores shelves for any length of time.
