If you are wondering, does coffee have any health benefits? Below are the five top health benefits.
1. Heart Disease . . .
Studies show that consuming three to five cups of coffee daily are less likely to develop calcification in the coronary arteries, as coffee protects the muscular chamber of the heart from artery damage that could be due to inflammation.
2. Lowers the Risk of Alzheimer’s . . .
According to studies, Beta-amyloid is the primary cause of Alzheimer's disease. Caffeine reduces beta-amyloid and polyphenol in coffee has antioxidant effects which lower inflammation and helps to protect the brain from declining in function.
3. Lowers the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) . . .
Our body cannot sufficiently produce or effectively use insulin that results in an increase in the level of blood glucose in T2D. Findings in research show that individuals with increased intake of a cup of coffee per day were less likely to develop T2D.
4. Reduces Depression . . .
Coffee does have a positive impact on the mood and helps in preventing depression of mild level to moderate levels. This bad immune reaction causes inflammation in our brain resulting in depression.
A combination of various antioxidants such as nicotinic acid, chlorogenic acid, tannic acid, quinolinic acid, pyrogallic acid, trigonelline, etc. in coffee helps to relieve this inflammation.
5. Protects Against Liver Cirrhosis
Reducing the intake of alcohol will prevent liver cirrhosis. But the study showed that coffee drinkers either decaf and/or regular coffee have lower liver enzymes which protect the liver.
Conclusion . . .
Being able to brew a great cup of coffee yourself at home is valuable. It is also essential to remember that coffee alone is not responsible to keep your overall health in top shape.
Eating healthy food, regular workout, and maintaining a wholesome and healthy lifestyle is essential too!
