We know the importance of detoxification right now, given the global situation. But did you know that one of the most consumed substances on the planet is loaded with toxins?
Coffee is the second most consumed beverage in the world, right behind water.
97% of coffee beans in the world are sprayed with pesticides.
The awareness of the number of pesticides in coffee is growing as consumers search for cleaner, healthier options.
The Global Maximum Residue Limit database shows at least 42 toxic pesticides that are used on coffee throughout the world. In fact, there are even more being used, as some of them aren’t reported.
Below is a list of 33 of them that are commonly used.
These pesticides cause a host of health issues and should be avoided as much as possible. This includes choosing organic food options, when one can.
One of the major negative effects of these pesticides are causing the suppression of the all-important p53 gene. This isn’t something we want as the p53 gene is often referred to as the “Guardian of the Genome.”
In short, the p53 gene’s role is to help ensure cells die off when they are supposed to. If this gene is turned off or the expression is lowered, cells can continue to multiply and in some situations, this is the opposite of what the body wants.
At Ascent Nutrition, we offer some of the world’s cleanest coffee’s you can find.
Our plants and beans are grown without pesticides and done with organic practices being carried out.
Where we separate from others is that not only are we using organic practices, we ensure our coffee beans from Guatemala are mold and mycotoxin-free. This is a big deal in the coffee industry.
Mycotoxins are in almost all low quality brands of coffee. One particular study showed that 91.7% of green coffee beans were contaminated with mold. This was even before they were processed, which is a process that allows even more mold to grow.
An additional study showed 52% of green coffee beans and nearly 50 percent of brewed coffees are moldy.
This means coffee is one of the biggest sources of mycotoxins in the global food supply.
The researchers ended up concluding “…regular coffee consumption may contribute to exposure of humans to OA (ochratoxin).”
Ochratoxin A isn’t something you want in your body. It targets the kidneys strongly and can cause cancer, as well as suppress immune system function.
We proudly and openly show our most recent lab results here, which was just a few weeks ago.
Not only do we ensure each batch of coffee is clean before it hits your cup, but we have direct partnership with woman-owned farmers in Guatemala. You can rest easy knowing this coffee is sustainable in every way.
Our coffee is single origin, so there’s no question about where its coming from or how it got there. The beans themselves carry the flavor of origin, possessing specific characteristics you will find nowhere else in the world.
At Ascent, we believe this is the peak of what coffee can and should be.”
We thank these reviewers and all customers!
