For those who love their morning coffee, coffee breaks and well, coffee throughout the whole day, the new brand Bulletproof coffee I have been trying over the last week really is something quite different from the rest of the products on the market.
Bulletproof coffee products
From first opening the packet of the Bulletproof Upgraded coffee the aroma was really rich and made my kitchen instantly smell like a coffee house. Making up the coffee recipe was also easy enough, as there were clear instructions to follow. Do not be alarmed about the addition of butter to the recipe, as the Bulletproof website explains our bodies do need some of the good fats!
I usually buy Melitta coffee, so being a creature of habit I rarely try anything else, however, even though the taste was fairly similar, the colour and aroma was better from the Bulletproof coffee.
Additionally, the effects the Bulletproof coffee had as the week went on were quite astonishing. I felt much more alert and found it easier to concentrate without ever hitting a low after drinking a cup too many. Something that is very important for me as a student, often revising through the night!. This is partly due to the low toxin levels but high antioxidants found within the recipe, plus the addition of healthy fats which many of us lack.
The coffee is a little more expensive than many brands available on your local shop's shelf but the benefits I got out of the coffee would be worth the extra price. At the price of $22 a bag you don't have much to loose to give the product a trial run.
The Bulletproof Upgraded MCT Oil that I have also been sampling has so many beneficial properties according to the product information. To name a few, the oil helps with immune boosting, supports weight loss, maintains healthy cholesterol and improves nutrient absorption. The oil is flavourless so I have used it in one of the suggested recipes of adding it in smoothies for breakfast. Within a week I noticed a boost in my energy levels. I don't use much oil in cooking but I am going to try it in salad dressings when the weather gets a little warmer!
When there are so many new brands trying to bombard you with promotions on healthy products that it becomes almost overwhelming, I have really appreciated Bulletproof's simple philosophy and how it can be so easily brought into my daily routine. It almost felt like I was being rewarded for drinking coffee!

Thanks Eleanor, long nights are tough on the body so I find adding some Activated Charcoal helps keep the nasties at bay and you don't get totally wiped out the next day!
