Daily Coffee Myth - Coffee Raises Cholesterol Levels

By Kimberly Wells May 07, 2018 0 comments

Myth: If you drink coffee, your cholesterol levels will go up.

Fact: Coffee contains a compound called "cafestol" which potentially stimulates LDL cholesterol, but the compound is only found in the oil of coffee. If you make your coffee with a paper filter, you eliminate this problem.

Daily Coffee Myth - Coffee Raises Cholesterol Levels

However, if you don't have LDL cholesterol problems currently, then there is no need to worry about it.

Making your coffee with a mesh filter or by way of something like a French Press will not filter out the coffee oils.
