5 Reasons to Wake Up and Smell the Coffee
Did you know that 54 percent of Americans over 18 drink coffee everyday?
Did you also know that coffee can be pretty amazing for your brain, your skin and your body?
Read on to discover 5 of the many reasons you should wake up and smell the coffee...
Americans get more antioxidants from coffee than anything else.
According to a study done in 2005, "nothing else comes close" to providing as many antioxidants as coffee. While fruits and vegetables also have tons of antioxidants, the human body seems to absorb the most from coffee.
Coffee could reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Coffee also lowers risk of Type 2 diabetes, according to a study from The American Chemical Society. The study's researchers found that people who drink four or more cups of coffee a day reduce their chances of developing Type 2 diabetes by 50 percent.
Drinking coffee could help keep your brain healthier for longer.
Researchers from the University of South Florida and the University of Miami found that people older than 65 who had higher blood levels of caffeine developed Alzheimer's disease two to four years later than others with lower caffeine.
Coffee could reduce your chances of getting skin cancer (if you're a woman).
Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School followed 112,897 men and women over a 20-year period and, apparently, women who drink three or more cups of coffee a day are much less likely to develop skin cancer than those who don’t.
Coffee can make you feel happier.
A study done by the National Institute of Health found that those who drink four or more cups of coffee were about 10 percent less likely to be depressed than those who had never touched the java.
I’m not suggesting that people start drinking coffee by the gallon. Too much of anything can be bad. While the coffee may be healthy, that’s not necessarily true of the added sugar and cream that many people put into coffee.
Do you shop for Organic produce and other food products?
How about an Organic coffee?
The brand I use is organic, delivered right to my door and at an amazing discount compared to retail.
It also has won taste tests with Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Dunkin’ Donuts and you can brew it at home, either as a grind or in a K-cup. It comes in several flavors, including decaffeinated.
