7 Untold Health Benefits From Your Cup of Joe

coffee-rain-windowDid you know that behind oil, coffee is the most popular commodity traded worldwide?

Over 25 Million people are involved in the trade, growth, distribution and manufacture of coffee.

And while billions of people start their days with coffee, many probably aren’t aware of just how good it really is for you.

Now before you get to far into this article a mention of the harm coffee can do should be made.

First, coffee (or rather caffeine) is a drug. That means you can become dependent on it. Coffee should be used in moderation.

Also, since coffee acts as a stimulant, it can cause symptoms like anxiety, irregular heartbeat, insomnia, and it can disrupt hormone levels depending on how you drink.

With that being said you deserve to know just how good coffee can be for you.

Take a look at these benefits.

  1. It fights cancer. Several studies have shown coffee can help fight several different types of cancer. These include HCC (hepatocellular carcinoma), Colon Cancer, and Prostate Cancer.
  2. It can help you lose weight. Caffeine helps to stimulate the metabolism anywhere from 3 – 11 %. This has a thermogenic affect on the body which means that the body will begin to warm itself up and begin burning calories at a quicker rate. This helps you to shed unwanted pounds.
  3. Coffee can help reduce levels of depression. Harvard did a study in 2011 where they followed the coffee drinking habits of women. They found that women who had 4 or more cups a day were 20% less likely to be depressed than those who had less than 4 cups of coffee
  4. It also reduces the risk of suicide. The Archives of Internal Medicine showed that people who consumed the same amount of coffee (4 cups) were 53% less likely to commit suicide.
  5. Coffee has been shown to be preventative in the formation of Type II Diabetes. Both Japanese and German scientists showed that coffee helps double glucose intake which helps to normalize insulin levels. This helps the body maintain stable insulin levels which prevents Type II Diabetes.
  6. It can prevent Parkinson’s. Surprising considering coffee gives you the jitters. JAMA noted that coffee intake had a direct correlation with lower incidences of Parkinson’s disease. In fact, pharmaceuticals are trying to copy the chemical compound and mass produce it in a drug form.
  7. The Journal of Alzheimer’s disease was able to show that a yet to be named ingredient interacted with caffeine in such a way that it actually protected the brain so Alzheimer’s didn’t form

Not to mention that coffee will give you extra energy, increase athletic performance, has a wealth of antioxidants that are great at fighting free radicals, and much more.

Keep in mind that while coffee is an amazing health food, if you’re eating one problematic plant your health is in serious jeopardy.
