Is Decaf Coffee Good for You?

5 Amazing Health Benefits of Drinking Decaf Coffee

I’m not a coffee drinker. However, I know millions of people love coffee. Nearly half of 18 to 24-year-olds drank the beverage, and almost 70 percent of seniors did so. Not only are seniors more likely to be coffee drinkers than their younger cohorts, but they drink about three times as many cups a day. Yet, a growing trend of people under 30 transitioning from regular to decaf coffee is growing. There are various reasons why Millennials and Gen Z are turning to decaf coffee, but health concerns play the most significant role... Have you made the switch yet?

For many younger people, being healthy doesn’t mean not being sick. Instead, it’s an all-encompassing term that covers good physical movement, clean or organic eating, staying hydrated, and the daily commitment to a wholesome and healthier lifestyle. 


Caffeinated coffee can provide many health benefits such as increased energy and improved mood when consumed at reasonable levels. But, as young folks worry about the effects certain products have on their bodies and mind, decaf is becoming more attractive. 


So, today, I’m going to share some of the health benefits of drinking decaf coffee instead of regular caffeinated coffee. Before you learn about these benefits, you must know the difference between decaf and caffeinated coffee.

What Is Decaf Coffee?

As a non-coffee drinker, I’ve mistakenly assumed that all coffees were the same. They’re not. For example, Latte’s contain a heavy amount of milk compared to Macchiatos. Before deciding to switch from caffeinated to decaf coffee, you should understand the differences between them. 


Decaf coffee is a type of caffeinated beverage in which a large percentage of its caffeine is removed in the decaffeination process. There are four decaffeination processes. However, the most natural of them is the Supercritical C02 process. In the Supercritical C02 process, the coffee beans are steamed and introduced into the liquid C02 form. 


First, C02 liquid absorbs the caffeine. Then the beans and CO2 are separated, and the fluid is pumped into an evaporator, turning it back into a gas. The caffeine can be isolated and removed from the CO2 at this point. This process is repeated multiple times until more than 97% of the caffeine is removed from the beans. 


Now that you understand how decaf coffee is made and what it is let’s talk about some of the health benefits of decaffeinated coffee.

People who want to drink coffee but have digestive problems should try decaf. Decaf coffee has less acid than regular caffeinated coffee. This means drinking decaf coffee will less likely cause stomach pains, cramps, or digestive problems.


Has Lots Of Antioxidants

Decaf coffee contains many antioxidants that help the body prevent disease, fight illness, and stay healthy. Many medical professionals suggest drinking or eating food high in antioxidants also helps improve the cardiovascular system, fight cancer, and avoid common illnesses such as the common cold and flu. 


So, if you’re ever in the mood for a caffeinated drink but want to stay healthy, then opt-in for a decaf coffee with no added sugars or creamers.

It Has Less Caffeine

One of the biggest reasons people choose to drink a decaf beverage is to avoid the effects of caffeine. While caffeine can provide a subtle energy and mood increase, there are some adverse side effects. 


People who are sensitive to caffeine can drink decaf coffee without having to worry. Decaffeinated coffee is a coffee that has most of its caffeine removed. However, it retains many of the flavours, tastes, and characteristics of your everyday cup of regular coffee. 


Most mainstream and local coffee shops offer decaffeinated beverage options, and it’s growing in popularity. But, first, you must research what coffee you’d like decaffeinated

Help Detox The Body

Decaf coffee contains Vitamin B-3, also known as Niacin. Niacin helps the body to lower cholesterol, fight arthritis, improve brain functions, and lower the risks of a heart attack. While this is one of the essential vitamins the body needs, many people suffer from a deficiency in it. 


Vitamin B-3 helps to cleanse and detox the body. In addition, it can help eliminate foreign chemicals, decrease stress, and lower anxiety

Reduce Acid Reflux Flare-Ups

As mentioned previously, traditional coffee has lots of acids, which can cause problems for people with various medical conditions, including acid reflux. Acid reflux, also known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease, is when the stomach acid or bile flows into the food pipe and irritates the lining. 


Decaf coffee lowers the acid in your body, which makes it easier to manage symptoms of acid reflux, such as heartburn and chest pain.

Why Should You Opt-In For Decaf?

As you can see, drinking decaf coffee comes with many health benefits. However, there is still a limit to how much decaf coffee you should consume daily. While decaf contains much less caffeine than regular, it still has some. Too much caffeine can cause many problems, such as:

  • Dehydration
  • Anxiety
  • Increased heart rate
  • Restlessness
  • Insomnia
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches or migraines

People of all ages can enjoy a moderate amount of decaf coffee. However, anyone with medical concerns such as acid reflux, IBS, and digestive problems should consider switching to decaf. Pregnant women or people should also consider switching to decaf and lowering their caffeine intake. 


Decaf coffee comes with many benefits that are not limited to people with sensitivities or who can’t drink it. If you’re going on a health and wellness journey, you can enjoy coffee without the adverse amounts of caffeine.

  • Ginger Byrd

    Thank you for this informative article. I am one that cannot drink caffeinated coffee because it causes acid reflux, extreme anxiety and restlessness in my body. I guess you could say that I am overly sensitive. Because of this, I’ve avoided coffee for most of my life. Your article has opened my eyes to the benefits of decaffeinated coffee. I’m interested to know how much caffeine is still in decaffeinated coffee. Thank you for this article.

    You left out one very important reason for drinking decaffeinated coffee: Caffeine is also a cardiac irritant in that its stimulating effects can cause a more rapid heartbeat AND create heart rhythm disturbances in those of us more sensitive to that. I have had bouts of atrial fibrillation (A.Fib.), not at all uncommon in older people (including President Biden). I am almost always in normal rhythm, but when I go into a.fib. sometimes I have to be “cardioverted” (under anesthesia, giving the heart an electrical shock with paddles to bring it back into rhythm). So, I do whatever I can to keep my heart from going back in to a.fib. I love decaf coffee and I can drink a lot of it with no worry. And decaf still gives me a little “buzz” like regular coffee, but not nearly as intense.

    Very good article! Fix the typo in the following sentence:

    If you’re hear looking for a flavoursome, decaf coffee then you’ve come to the right place. We use the CO2 method to naturally decaffeinate our coffee beans to lock in the flavour and help you make a better tasting brew at home.

    Instead of ‘here’, it has ‘hear’.
