    does coffee really contain anti-oxidents?

    Does it? It says on the back of my instant coffee jar that it has 360 mg of polyphenols. You can also buy a coffee "green" blend with 70% more anto oxidents in every cup. Anyone care to shed some light on it?

    I read a long time ago that coffee was American's main source of antioxidants.

    But yes, it's true, coffee has antioxidants.

    It's true BUT

    1) It also contains anti-nutrients like oxalic acid (may leach calcium from the body, don't know if this is true).

    2) It promotes sleep deprivation, hormonal imbalance etc

    Mark also wrote a few things about coffee consumption:
