Andrew Salisbury, an expert on issues surrounding coffee and health, and Co-founder of Purity Coffee stated, “Coffee contributes the most antioxidants to the Western diet due to its richness of chlorogenic acids (CGAs).

However, this study is further evidence that drinking great quality organic coffee is one of the easiest adjustments you can make to improve overall health.”
