Are you someone who always believes in another cup of coffee? Then this article is for you !
It may decrease your risk of depression. Drinking four or more cups per day could decrease the risk of depression in women, according to a study from the “Harvard School of Public Health”. Coffee drinkers have a 20% lower chance of developing depression later in life. Drinking 2 to 4 cups daily also appears to lower the risk of suicide by 50%, according to another Harvard study!
It might help prevent skin cancer. Drinking about 4 cups of coffee daily may lower your risk of cutaneous melanoma, the leading cause of skin-cancer death in the U.S., by 20%, according to a study published in the “Journal of the National Cancer Institute”. Four daily cups of coffee can also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, according to previous studies.
It helps you focus and stay alert. Moderate caffeine intake, 1-6 cups a day, helps you focus and improves your mental alertness.
Smelling it can bust stress. When rats smelled coffee beans, genes connected with healthful antioxidants and stress-reduction were activated, according to researchers from “Seoul National University” in South Korea. No, you’re not a rat—even if you’re in the rat race—but the stress-busting benefits may be one reason your morning latte smells so delicious!
It may help your hearing. Regularly consuming caffeine may help prevent tinnitus, a persistent ringing in the ear. Women who drank one and a half cups of coffee a day were 15% more likely to develop tinnitus than those who drank 4 to 6 cups, according to a study of 65,000 women published in the “American Journal of Medicine”.
Bad coffee can be toxic. Bad quality coffee can have a lot of impurities in it, which can cause sickness, headache or a general bad feeling. This can happen if it’s is made from beans that have been over ripped or otherwise ruined. Even one ruined bean can make your cup toxic. If you invest and buy high quality coffee you don’t have to worry about this.
It can cause insomnia and restlessness. Again, it’s the caffeine working here. Your recommended maximum amount of caffeine is 400 milligrams, roughly the amount that you’ll get from 4 cups of coffee. If you’re caffeine-sensitive, be careful with it. You are probably already aware what amount and what kind of it suits, or doesn’t suit you. The amount of caffeine that is safe for human consumption is actually written in our DNA!.
If you have high cholesterol or you are caffeine sensitive, pregnant or a child (or a parent of one), you should pay attention.
For others, reasonable amounts (1 to 4 cups ) can be good for you. It can prevent serious diseases, boost your mind and muscles, and even help you with weight loss. Remember, as long as you drinking toxin free, speciality coffee and brew it with care, you can and should be enjoying it knowing it’s good for you.
