I’m having some medical testing done this week, and as part of the preparation, I have to lay off both regular and decaffeinated coffee and tea. (And avocado, but that’s another matter.) This is going to be a challenge. I don’t drink as much coffee as I used to, but I do need that first cup to get my day started.
Bulletproof Coffee is coffee loaded with healthy fats that are good for cognition, and it really gives me a boost of energy and clarity that carries me throughout most of the day. Some may dismiss it as a fad, but all I can say is that it definitely works for me.
Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof Exec and originator of the Bulletproof Coffee phenomenon, sells coffee beans that are low in “mycotoxins,” which supposedly make for a clearer head.
(Though his claims of superior coffee are not without some controversy. Joe Rogan, after having Asprey as a guest on his podcast, calls bullshit on some of Asprey’s claims regarding mycotoxins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwY4H3cNTH0)
I have to say that I definitely have noticed a difference with his Bulletproof Coffee beans versus “regular” beans. I had waited until I ran out to order more, and had to make do with regular store-bought beans for about a week or so. And I wasn’t buying the cheap stuff either; it was a brand known for its high-quality coffee. Whatever the case, I noticed I wasn’t getting the same boost of energy from the Bulletproof coffee as I had been. I’d get a little jolt from the caffeine, but it wouldn’t last me throughout the day. I thought maybe my body had adapted to the formula or something, and I was out of the honeymoon period.
When I got my new supply of Asprey’s coffee beans, I noticed the difference almost immediately. That energy was back. I felt like a million bucks. So, while it’s anecdotal, I can’t argue that Asprey’s Upgraded Coffee makes a difference for me. Maybe I’ll try to switch out for another brand again to see if I can replicate the experience, but why mess around with a good thing?
So forgive me if my writing is lackluster this week. I’m experiencing extreme brain fog.
