Posted in:

Though there is the apparent energy boosting benefit to coffee, the reality is that it can offer much more than just that, especially when you choose a high-quality brand. From your skin down to combating various chronic diseases, this magic in a cup is one that has been proven to be a powerful health agent for all those coffee lovers out there. To give you some more insight as to what you are being subjected to each time you sip a steaming cup of Nicaraguan coffee, take a look at the top health benefits from coffee in general.

Rich in Antioxidants

Every day, your body is in a constant battle to resist toxic elements from being absorbed through both drinks, food, pollution, etc. By drinking coffee, this antioxidant-rich beverage can boost/strengthen your energy and help you clean out those nasty toxins. This then becomes the catalyst for you to have a reduced risk of getting certain infections or illnesses in the long run.


Longer Lifespan

This benefit has been involved with several academic studies, which claim that one of the health benefits of coffee is a longer lifespan. Though there is still muddy water to prove this fact entirely, it holds promising evidence because studies like Gunter published in 2017 found that those who drank coffee have a lowered risk of dying from heart disease, stroke, and cancer. These findings, along with coffee being known to improve the immune system, were consistent with other U.S. studies as well.


Helps You Lose Weight

Another health benefit of coffee is the fact that it can elevate your metabolic rate by 3 to 11%, sometimes more. This is why caffeine is often found in nearly every fat-burning supplement within the commercial world and is currently being tested as a critical role in obesity treatments.


Lower Risk of Diabetes

The medical properties of coffee show auspicious features that are linked to lowering the risk of someone developing diabetes, more specifically type 2. Researchers, such as Dr. Hu from the University of Harvard, found that each cup of coffee that a person drinks reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes by 9%. And this percentage rose for those who also have a healthy diet and exercise routine.


Can Protect Against Alzheimer’s Disease

More and more evidence is pointing out that coffee may have the ability to reduce the likelihood of Alzheimer’s developing. It is also said to potentially slow down the degenerative aspects in those who already have it. This is because new research discovered that coffee can reduce the amount of beta-amyloid in the brain by up to 50%. Coffee was also shown to block inflammation in the brain (more specifically, the adenosine receptors). When not blocked, these receptors can cause the chain reaction that begins someone’s cognitive functions to decline. In summary, there is still a lot of studying and research to 100% prove this claim, but as of right now, the investigations look bright.


Conclusion – Coffee, In the Right Amounts, Can Be Wonderfully Healthy

The health benefits of coffee have certainly been a hot topic in recent decades. After all, coffee is hands-down the most loved beverage on a global scale despite some controversial claims that it was bad for your health. Now, to clear the elephant in the room, yes, drinking too much coffee can actually hurt you more than help you. The underlying reason for that is due to the high caffeine content. However, as long as you aim to stay under 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day (aka 4 cups or less), you can be confident you will unlock the excellent benefits listed above, which genuinely makes drinking Coffee Cart Boys coffee an even more euphoric experience.
