All good things hail from that little bean.
Long ago, around the time people thought the world was flat, coffee was something to be avoided. People thought it was bad for your health. With modern technology and research we have learned coffee is not bad for you, but indeed good for you...and your health. Not only does it keep you from killing someone in the early morning hours, it is loaded with antioxidants and beneficial nutrients to improve your health and life.
Here are some benefits to drinking coffee daily:
1. Coffee gives you more energy.
Coffee is a stimulant, this means after you drink a cup of coffee your energy levels will increase, including your mood, memory, reaction time and general cognitive function. You will be able to feel like Superman without having to dress up in a blue and red leotard.
2. Coffee may lower your risk for type II diabetes.
Studies show that people who drink tons of coffee have a 25-50% lower risk of getting the disease than non-drinkers.
3. Coffee may protect you from losing your mind.
Studies show that coffee drinkers have a 65% lower risk of getting Alzheimer's disease and dementia. So, before you forget, drink up!
4. Coffee has a protective effect on the liver.
People who drink 4 or more cups of coffee a day have an 80% lower risk of developing cirrhosis. Heavy alcohol drinkers, take note!
5. Coffee makes you Happy
Coffee helps fight depression and generally lift your mood. So, if you're on the edge of a building, before you jump, why don't you reconsider over a cup of coffee, first.
