Researchers at John Hopkins University recently teamed up with Baltimore Coffee and Tea Co. and Brassica Protection Products to produce an immunity-boosting drink called Brassica coffee. With a growing demand for functional drinks and other nutrient-rich products, this specialty coffee could soon become the go-to drink for health-conscious consumers.

Brassica coffee is a powerful coffee blend that boasts the same health benefits as a serving of broccoli. The coffee itself is made with glucoraphanin, which is extracted from broccoli seeds. According to researchers, this ingredient can "boost your body’s natural ability to defend itself against pollutants and toxins for up to 72 hours." This means that consumers can enjoy all the health benefits of eating broccoli without sacrificing their favorite morning beverage.

The antioxidant-rich coffee is likely to appeal to health-conscious consumers looking for an easy way to pack more nutrition into their diet.
