Is Coffee Good For You?

Coffee has been around a long time and blamed for many ills-from how

it could raise your blood pressure, make your heart race, impair sleep

and maybe even cause cancer. So, is coffee good for you?

Does Coffee Have Health Benefits?

What a difference a few years can make. Now the World Health Organisation

(WHO) is taking coffee off possible carcinogen list. Recent studies has

shown that coffee may in fact have health benefits including protecting against Parkinson’s Disease, type 2 diabetes and liver disease, including lung

cancer. Coffee also appears to improve cognitive function and decrease

risk of depression.

Coffee, Is It Good For You?

Moderate coffee consumption (3 to 4 cups per day) has been linked to longer

life span. A 2015 study in circulation found that coffee consumption

was associated with a 8% to 15% reduction in the risk of death than

non coffee drinkers. The reason that drinking coffee is beneficial

is unknown although the obvious factor of course may be the caffeine.

Health Benefits

Coffee is one of the worlds most popular beverages.

Below are listed the top health benefits

  1. Can improve energy levels and make you smarter.
  2. Can assist in burning fat.
  3. Can drastically improve physical performance
  4. Contains essential nutrients.
  5. May lower the risk of type2 diabetes.
  6. May protect you from Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia.
  7. May lower risk of Parkinson’s Disease.
  8. May protect your liver.
  9. Can fight depression and make you happier.
  10. May lower risk of certain types of cancer.
  11. Doesn’t cause heart disease and may lower risk of stroke.
  12. May help you live longer.
  13. The biggest source of antioxidants in the western diet.

Everything In Moderation

Even though moderate amounts of coffee are good for you as listed

above, drinking way too much of it can be harmful. If you want to

ensure the potential health benefits of coffee avoid

adding sugar. And if you think coffee effects your sleep do not drink

it late in the afternoon.

But in the end, one thing hold true : Coffee may well be the healthiest

beverage on the planet.

The Bottom Line

Its unusual that  a food on the “cancer risk list” comes off it – and

even more unusual that such food then becomes a health choice as

is the case with coffee.

But as many millions of people around the world drinking coffee every day

will tell you when it comes to COFFEE there is nothing like it.
