Black coffee does more than provide an energy boost; it can also help you stay healthy in a variety of ways.
Health Advantages Black coffee, when consumed in moderation, can be beneficial and may be able to aid in the management of symptoms associated with or even prevent a variety of health problems.
Preventing Alzheimer's Disease Consuming coffee may help lower your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. One in every eight people aged 65 and older has Alzheimer's disease. Scientists estimate that coffee drinkers face a 16 percent lower risk than non-coffee drinkers, but additional research is needed to confirm the link.
Cancer Risk Reduction Scientists have not determined why coffee may help reduce the risk of cancer. A possible explanation is that coffee is high in antioxidants, which some studies indicate may help prevent cancer.
Cirrhosis Risk Reduction Consuming four or more cups of coffee per day can significantly reduce your risk of developing alcoholic cirrhosis by up to 80 percent and 30% for non-alcoholic.
Enhancement of Mood Coffee has been shown in studies to help reduce the risk of depression, particularly when consumed in quantities of four or more cups per day.
Management of Diabetes Regular coffee drinkers have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It occurs when the body is unable to use insulin to transport glucose (sugar) into cells, resulting in an accumulation of sugar in the blood.
Numerous studies indicate that drinking coffee may help reduce the risk of developing diabetes. Another study discovered that for every additional cup of coffee consumed per day, a person's risk of developing diabetes decreases by 7%.
Bear in mind that a single serving contains approximately 96 milligrams of caffeine, and it is not recommended to consume more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day. If you're a heavy coffee drinker, monitor your consumption and avoid exceeding four cups daily.
