We know that coffee gives us the energy we need to get through the day, but caffeine can also help you live a healthier life.
The ingredients found in coffee, particularly caffeine, helps improve a person’s quality of life by increasing circulation and providing nutrients that protect the body from disease and even cancer.
Here are the top five reasons why coffee is good for your health and wellbeing.
REDUCE THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE
A cup of joe definitely gets your blood pumping when you need a boost of energy, but did you know that coffee can also help your heart health?
A 2014 study by The American Heart Association found that individuals who consume three to five cups of coffee per day are at the lowest risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, compared to those who drink one to three cups and non-coffee drinkers.
So drink up, coffee addicts: it’s for your heart!
PREVENT TYPE 2 DIABETES
Great news for caffeine fanatics: Drinking more coffee helps reduce your risk for Type 2 Diabetes.
A study compiled by Harvard University’s School of Public Health found that extreme coffee drinkers, including those who drink six or more cups a day or those who consume highly caffeinated coffee like Biohazard Ground and Whole Bean Coffee, are 35% less likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes than infrequent coffee drinkers.
The magnesium and chromium found in coffee helps regulate blood sugar levels, keeping the pancreas in tip-top shape.
Your odds of preventing diabetes increase by approximately 7% with each additional cup of coffee, so get brewing.
REDUCE RISK OF DEMENTIA
Coffee helps get your mind ready for the busy day or night ahead, but it can also keep your brain strong for years to come.
Consuming high levels of caffeine daily, preferably over 1,200 mg, can prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease, according to the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Researchers found that caffeine helps reduce the build-up of a protein that causes memory loss and onsets Alzheimer’s later in life.
By increasing the caffeine in your coffee, you can enjoy the benefits more efficiently and keep your mind sharp.
One of the most notable health findings in recent years is the link between coffee consumption and cancer risk.
The American Gastroenterological Association discovered that those who drink two or more cups of coffee per day are 43% less likely to develop liver cancer, and the benefits increase with higher caffeination.
The drink cleanses out the liver and helps detoxify your body, making your organs function more efficiently over time and preventing liver cancer.
Just another great health reason to drink more coffee!
HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS
Looking to lose a few pounds this summer?
Drink a cup of high-caffeine coffee to fuel your workout and help you burn more calories during and after your workout. The chemical composition of caffeine mobilizes fatty acids, making it easier to burn fat during cardio and strength training sessions.
Starting your day with coffee also boosts your metabolism by 3% to 11% to help cells burn fat long after exercising, according to the National Center for Biotechnical Information.
