The Health Benefits of Coffee

The health Benefits of Coffee

Drinking coffee seems to have many health benefits, but what are they? First of all, let me tell you what coffee is not and what are the main health benefits of Coffee. Also, let me make clear that I am a huge fan of Coffee. Here’s why:


When you drink Coffee, there are hundreds of different compounds in your body that have different effects on you. Some are not well understood, so they aren’t included here. However, what is known is that when you consume caffeine, your brain releases a surge of neurotransmitters called dopamine. This can increase your wellbeing.


One of the health benefits of Coffee is that it reduces weight. Yes, you read that right. Not only does it reduce weight in general, but it decreases weight loss in some people. This is because when your metabolism slows down, you don’t feel as hungry. However, if your metabolism is speeding up, you will eat more calories than normal.


Another of the health benefits of Coffee is that it reduces your risk of some diseases. Some of these include diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and cancers. Coffee also reduces your risk of being overweight or obese. It contains anti-oxidants, which are necessary for good health. However, there are still many scientists researching the health benefits of Coffee. One of their latest studies found that black coffee has the same anti-oxidant effects of the acai berry.


The first of the studies published this research was a study published in the journal of Obesity. The study looked at over 800 women who had already completed a two-year diet and exercise program. The women were given either black coffee or a control drink and they followed for two years to determine if the drinks influenced their bodies weight and fat accumulation. The results showed that women who drank the black coffee had a significantly lower body fat and a lower amount of bad cholesterol than those who took the control drink.


The latest study published this month looked at the effect of caffeine on overweight and obese adults. Again, this was a large study that involved over 1000 adults who were all trying to lose weight. The researchers found that adults who drank the largest amount of caffeine were less likely to be overweight or obese. Of course, all of these findings should be studied in more detail before we start to believe all of the hype about the health benefits of Coffee. What remains is that there are many positive benefits of Coffee, but like most healthy things, we should never rely too heavily on it.…
