Our expert says:
Thank you for your kind words. Both the so-called polyphenols found in coffee beans which are antioxidants and caffeine, which in moderate quantities acts as a mild stimulant and diuretic, can be beneficial. So if you drink decaff you will still obtain the benefits from the polyphenols. Excessive intakes of polyphenols from any source (for example unprocessed grains and cereals) can lower the absorption of minerals like calcium because these polyphenols form insoluble compounds with the calcium that the body struggles to absorb.
Therefore, moderation is the key to good health.
