Coffee’s Health Benefits

by Carla Griffin on October 19, 2011

You don’t have to think about skipping your morning cup of coffee, because interestingly enough, it has some proven health benefits. For example, coffee drinkers, compared to non-coffee drinkers, have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rythm problems, and strokes. Overall, the benefits outweigh the negative effects of coffee on the body. Although coffee has been shown to raise blood pressure, it has also been shown to counter several risks in heart disease and strokes.

Here are some more of the perks you can get from drinking coffee, from Health Magazine. For instance, it can help fight disease! The caffeine in coffee protects your brain cells from diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. They also can help prevent liver disease.

In the same way that it can protect your brain cells, it can boost your brainpower. Taking coffee before a test can not only sharpen your memory, but keep you more alert. Just make sure you avoid caffeine at least four hours before bedtime.

The caffeine in coffee can also speed up your metabolism and fat burning, which not only helps you lose weight, but it puts you at a lesser risk for type 2 diabetes and obesity. Not only that, but black coffee is a drink with very few calories.
