In recent years and decades,
scientists have studied the effects of coffee
on various aspects of health
and their results have been nothing short of amazing.
Here are 7 reasons why coffee
may actually be one of the
beverages on the planet.
1. Coffee Can Make You Smarter
The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine, which is a stimulant and the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world. Caffeine’s primary mechanism in the brain is blocking the effects of an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine.
By blocking the inhibitory effects of Adenosine,
caffeine actually increases neuronal firing in the brain
and the release of other neurotransmitters
like dopamine and norepinephrine.
Many controlled trials have examined
the effects of caffeine on the brain,
demonstrating that caffeine can improve mood, reaction time,
memory, vigilance and general cognitive function.
2. Coffee Can Help You Burn Fat
and Improves Physical Performance
There’s a good reason why you will find caffeine
in most commercial fat burning supplements.
Caffeine raises metabolism
and increases the oxidation of fatty acids.
3. Coffee May Drastically Lower
Your Risk of Type II Diabetes
Type II diabetes is a lifestyle-related disease
that has reached epidemic proportions,
having increased 10-fold in a few decades
and now afflicting about 300 million people.
In observational studies,
coffee has been repeatedly associated with a
lower risk of diabetes.
The reduction in risk ranges from 23%
all the way up to 67%.
A massive review article looked at 18 studies
with a total of 457,922 participants.
Each additional cup of coffee per day
lowered the risk of diabetes by 7%.
The more coffee people drank,
the lower their risk.
4. Coffee May Lower Your Risk
of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
Not only can coffee make you smarter in the short term,
it may also protect your brain in old age.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common
neurodegenerative disorder in the world
and a leading cause of dementia.
In prospective studies,
coffee drinkers have up to a
60% lower risk
of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder,
characterized by death of dopamine-generating neurons in the brain.
Coffee may lower the risk of Parkinson’s by 32-60%.
5. Coffee May be Extremely Good
For Your Liver
The liver is a remarkable organ
that carries out hundreds of vital functions in the body.
It is very vulnerable to modern insults
such as excess consumption of alcohol and fructose.
Cirrhosis is the end stage of liver damage
caused by diseases like alcoholism and hepatitis,
where liver tissue has been largely replaced by scar tissue.
Multiple studies have shown
that coffee can lower the risk of cirrhosis
by as much as 80%,
the strongest effect for those
who drank 4 or more cups per day.
Coffee may also lower the risk of
by around 40%.
6. Coffee May Decrease
Your Risk of Dying
In two very large prospective epidemiological studies,
drinking coffee was associated with
a lower risk of death by all causes.
This effect is particularly profound in type II diabetics,
one study showing that coffee drinkers
had a 30% lower risk of death during a 20 year period.
7. Coffee is Loaded
With Nutrients and Antioxidants
Many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the final drink, which actually contains a decent amount of vitamins and minerals.
ONE cup of coffee contains:
6% of the RDA for Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5).
11% of the RDA for Riboflavin (Vitamin B2).
2% of the RDA for Niacin (B3) and Thiamine (B1).
3% of the RDA for Potassium and Manganese.
May not seem like much,
but if you drink several cups of coffee per day
then this quickly adds up.
But this isn’t all.
Coffee also contains a massive amount of
coffee is the biggest source of antioxidants
in the western diet,
outranking both fruits and vegetables combined.
Even though coffee in moderate amounts is good for you,
drinking way too much of it can still be harmful.
To make sure to preserve the health benefits,
don’t put sugar
or anything nasty in your coffee!
If it tends to affect your sleep,
then don’t drink it after 2 p.m.
If anything, coffee may literally be
the healthiest beverage
on the planet.
And so, My Friends,
instead of allowing your children
to drink deadly and addictive soft drinks,
why not introduce them to something healthy?
