Multiple Sclerosis (MS), is an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation in the brain and spinal cord. MS can lead to a variety of symptoms including cognitive impairment, chronic pain, fatigue, and depression. Fatigue is a major complaint of those who have MS.

One of the most common causes of fatigue in people with MS is a lack of sleep. Besides the common sleeplessness due to many middle of the night spasms and other pain, fatigue can occur because MS is often a cause of chronic sleep disturbances.

What Are The Benefits Of Organic Coffee?

There are a few ways to fight fatigue caused by MS. I’ve written about the delicious fatigue fighting effects of Dark Chocolate in one of my articles. Another helpful solution to MS fatigue is drinking organic coffee as opposed to regular farmed brands. Regular coffee works well for some MSers, but some have reactions and other problems due to too much caffeine or pesticides and other harmful ingredients contained in the coffee beans.

Organic coffee contains less than half the amount of caffeine as regular coffee.

Although organic coffee won’t give you the same boost as your typical cup of coffee, the benefits of drinking organic coffee are well worth it because it helps you stay alert and focused for longer periods of time without the jittery side effects of caffeine.

Caffeine boosts adrenaline levels which can cause your body to feel more energized. Organic coffee has less caffeine than other types of coffee, but will still give you all of the wakeful benefits that caffeine offers without any of the negative side effects like an uncomfortable racing heart or elevated anxiety.

Organic coffee also contains healthy antioxidants. It has no extra sugars or artificial ingredients, which makes it healthier all around.

Another huge benefit to drinking organic coffee (affiliate link) regularly, is a reduction of oxidative stress on the brain which helps reduce cognitive impairment known to be caused by MS.
