Coffee’s health benefits have been making the headlines in recent weeks – from the research that found drinking an extra couple of cups a day may protect your liver from the effects of cirrhosis to a report that revealed drinking over 900mls of coffee a day could cut the risk of developing MS.
And these are just two examples of how the black stuff can do a whole lot more for you than perk you up first thing in the morning. The health benefits of coffee are incredibly varied and gives you the perfect excuse to keep drinking it – but, then again, you didn’t really need an excuse did you?
Just some of coffee’s health benefits…
It’s thought coffee has a beneficial role in cutting your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, with the American Chemical Society producing a report that revealed four or more cups a day reduces that risk by at least 50 per cent!
Alzheimer’s Disease is the leading cause of dementia and there’s currently no known cure for the neurological disorder. Studies have revealed, however, that coffee drinkers could have up to a 65 per cent lower chance of developing the condition.
Drinking coffee in moderation could be good for your heart! In research carried out in the States, drinking four “European” cups of coffee every day lowered the risk of heart failure by 11 per cent.
A number of studies have established a link between coffee and a lower risk of depression, not due to its caffeine content but its antioxidant qualities and ability to stimulate the release of dopamine in the brain.
According to the University of Scranton, coffee is the top source of antioxidants in the USA – and that’s awesome news for your body on many levels. And a black coffee contains just two calories too.
This one is a pretty fundamental benefit, wouldn’t you agree? If you want to lower the risk of dying, drinking four to five cups a day could do that by 12 per cent. Even just the one cup can help, says this American study.
