CAFFEINE: The health benefits are insane
If anyone tells you to cut out coffee, cut them out. It's actually a medicine in its own right. The benefits are staggering. In fact, I recommend non drinkers should even consider drinking it. The benefits for lowering cancer risks up to 4 cups per day are considered as medically proven by science over and over again.
These are some facts:
Improves circulation in the brain and increases production of hormones that improve mood, memory and reaction time.
Boosts energy expenditure. Similar to coconut oil, coffee increases the calorie rate our bodies use.
300 million people in the world have Type 2 diabetes. With 1-3 cups per day, coffee drinkers have an average 40% risk reduction in this disease.
2/3 cups per day decreases the risk of Alzheimer's disease by 65%
Drinking 4 cups of coffee per day decreases risk of most liver diseases by a staggering 80%
An extremely large American study found women who drink 4 cups of coffee per day have a 20% decrease in developing depression, and a 53% reduction in committing self harm.
Several studies show coffee drinkers live longer and have a lower risk of premature death.
It is clear that in an average western diet people get more antioxidants from coffee than both fruit and vegetables alone (yes, correct)
3 cups of coffee per day has a 20% decrease of a stroke
Men who have 6 cups per day decrease prostate cancer risk by 60%. Women who have 2 cups decrease uterine cancer risk. Both sexes who have more than 4 cups decrease head cancer by 39%. Both sexes who drink 2 cups decrease colon cancer by 25% plus up to 4 cups per day are 42% less likely to develop bowel cancer.
