MindBodyGreen, Why Enzyme Coffee Doesn't Actually Do Anything & The Truth About Coffee For Weight Loss
Coffee is a near-perfect beverage. It's rich, packed with antioxidants, and even provides a natural energy boost from its caffeine content. Still, that doesn't stop some people from trying to reinvent the wheel by adding ingredients to coffee to "boost" its already impressive health benefits.
Enzyme coffee is a wellness trend that's circulating on social media sites like TikTok. It's promoted as a quick fix for weight loss, but is this concoction effective or too good to be true?
In this article, we're talking about enzyme coffee, including what it is, if it offers any health benefits, and why it's not worth trying.
What is enzyme coffee?
First of all, it's important to know that the term "enzyme coffee" has no set definition. If you search the term on TikTok or Google, hundreds of results will pop up, including homemade recipes for enzyme coffee as well as links to companies selling enzyme coffee products.
There are dozens of sponsored content videos on social media sites like TikTok where people claim to have used enzyme coffee products like Juz Fit Enzyme Coffee (which has the sketchiest website ever, by the way) to drop significant weight, and fast! In addition to premade products, which contain coffee blended with so-called enzymes, there are a variety of enzyme coffee recipes that are gaining traction on social media sites due to promises that drinking this concoction will benefit health and help people drop weight.
Some people make enzyme coffee by squeezing lemon into instant coffee, while others add apple cider vinegar, lemon, and honey to their coffee to….enzyme-mize it?
Sound like BS to me.
