Coffee & health: What’s new?

About the webinar:

Wake up and smell the coffee! From the gut and the brain to the immune system, research reveals there’s a kettle-full of new ways coffee can impact our clients’ health. In this webinar, Dr Flavia Fayet-Moore and Dr Carlene Starck will revisit the distinction between coffee and caffeine and delve into the emerging evidence on the health effects of this beloved brew. The role of genetics in how each person may respond to coffee will also be covered, including when sipping on that cuppa may be contraindicated.
