Circle of Light has launched a first-to-market range of green coffee and health drinks.
The new products have been created on the back of ten years of research and development with the aim of inspiring people to make healthier choices to support their overall health.
The newly launched products have specific, evidence-based health benefits that both target specific ailments (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, constipation, gut health, insomnia), and serve as meaningful contributions towards a more robust immune system and healthier lifestyle.
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in Ireland, accounting for 36% of all deaths, while high blood pressure is estimated to affect almost one million people in Ireland and is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Additionally, as the COVID 19 pandemic continues new findings are emerging which illustrate that high blood pressure and underlying heart conditions can increase the risk of complications associated with COVID 19.
Detailed scientific research has shown that chlorogenic acid – an active ingredient in Circle of Light’s Green Coffee products – can help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure in those with elevated levels. Ordinarily destroyed during the traditional roasting process, the green coffee bean – in its natural form – is high in a number of active ingredients, particularly chlorogenic acid, which has widespread health benefits as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Circle of Light CEO, Dr Sarah Kelly, said: “What we know from scientific research is that cardiovascular and gut health problems are ever prevalent among the Irish population. Since COVID restrictions have been introduced more and more people are working from home, moving less and many reporting that they are making unhealthy food choices. Our aim at Circle of Light is to inspire people to make healthy choices to support their overall health and wellbeing. From moving more to making healthier food choices. Our recently launched products have specific, evidence-based health benefits that both target specific ailments (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, constipation, gut health, insomnia), and serve as meaningful contributions towards a more robust immune system and healthier lifestyle.”
The Green Coffee range is available in a variety of blends (original, infused with ginger, and infused with green and herbal teas) and enriched with herbal infusions.
Another of their products is FIBRE89 (ginger & cinnamon flavours).
