Coffee Can Make You Live Longer
Is coffee good or bad? Put an end to that debate! Coffee is DEFINITELY good.
Yes, a study by the New England Journal of Medicine confirms that coffee is good for our health and it actually adds more years to our life. (Source)
The study followed 402,260 people for over a decade and concluded that the more coffee a person drank, the lower was his/her risk of death.
So what’s the secret? Coffee contains polyphenols, which is an influential antioxidant. And antioxidants, as you must know by now, are good for our health. They build our immunity, help in tissue repair and decrease the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes (type II) and cancer.
Coffee also contains lignans, quinides and magnesium that can help reduce insulin resistance and inflammation. (Source)
With all of that in a cup of coffee and a dash of caffeine that has its own cognitive benefits, there is no reason to stay away from your daily cuppa!
People who drink decaf will also benefit from their daily consumption as caffeine alone is not responsible for most of the health benefits.
Of course, one should be mindful to avoid adding too much sugar or cream as they aren’t necessarily good for our health.
Also, please NOTE that for people who suffer from gastro or kidney problems, coffee can make your symptoms worse. So please CONSULT A DOCTOR before you make changes to your diet.
The optimal amount of coffee you can consume on a daily basis is 4-5 cups. Even a single cup of coffee can lower mortality risk by 5-6%. (Source)
