Health benefits of coffee
Heart Disease & Stroke - It has long been said that coffee intake may raise the consumer’s blood pressure. This is true, but it is minuscule amounts (3-4mmHg), and even this small amount can decrease with long-term consistent consumption. In fact, coffee may be linked to lower risk of stroke and may not increase your risk of heart disease.*
Physical Performance & Fat Burning - Coffee may increase your physical performance and fat burning abilities in two ways.* First, by signaling the nervous system to begin breaking down fat which in turn can be used as an efficient source of fuel for your workouts. Obviously a side effect of this might be weight loss.* Second, coffee may increase the hormone epinephrine in the blood which might be responsible for longevity of physical activity.*
Protects the Liver - Coffee’s hepato-protective properties are impressive and gives hope to the health community. Everything that enters the body will pass through the liver to be broken down into its usable parts. Coffee consumption has been linked to potentially lower levels of liver cancer, cirrhosis, and fatty liver disease.* One study showed that individuals who drink 4 or more cups a day were 80 percent less likely to develop cirrhosis.
Gallstones - Coffee has been linked to lower rates of gallstones. Compounds in coffee may cause the gallbladder to contract which keeps small crystals from developing into large stones.
Increased Mood - Coffee is able to help increase mood due to more than just getting a jolt of energy and mental clarity after a cup.* It has been linked to lower rates of clinical depression and suicide attempts.* A Harvard study found that women who drank 4 or more cups a day might have a 20 percent lower rate of developing clinical depression. It was also found that people who drank the same four cups of coffee per day were at a lower risk of attempting suicide.*
Parkinson’s Disease - Some individuals know that this disease is common in their family and desire to take action to prevent its development in their own lives. Studies have shown that coffee might prevent the onset of Parkinson’s disease in most cases depending on other environmental and genetic factors.*
