COFFEE has previously been associated with increased health risks in the past. However, more recent studies have suggested otherwise, that coffee might just actually be GOOD FOR YOU (you'll look happy and healthy).
In moderation, coffee is beneficial for most people. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, that’s up to a maximum of 400 milligrams of caffeine per day. On average, it takes about 30 minutes for the effects of caffeine to kick in, and as you know, caffeine can wake you up, make you feel energized and alert, boost your mood, and improve concentration.
CAFFEINE is what we typically associate with coffee, but did you know that coffee contains ANTIOXIDANTS and other helpful substances too?
Benefits of Drinking Coffee:
Your body may process sugar better
Since your body processes glucose more efficiently, it has been theorized that coffee may in turn lessen the risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes
Lowers the risk of stroke and heart failure
Both are considered in the top 5 leading causes of death according to the World Health Organization
Decreases risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson's disease
Caffeine may provide protection against developing Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, and it may also help those with the condition better control their movements.
Protective effect on the liver and colon
Coffee drinkers are less likely to develop diseases involving their liver and colon. They are more likely to have liver enzyme levels within a healthy range than people who don’t drink coffee. Plus, it may also lower the severity and recurrence of colon cancer in patients who already have it.
Your DNA will be stronger
In particular, dark roast coffee decreases breakage in DNA strands. Breakage occurs naturally but may lead to something more serious if not repaired by your cells.
