Coffee Can Help You Live Longer
If you cannot conceive starting the day with any other hot beverage except coffee, welcome to the club! Coffee lovers will argue that the inimitable aroma and richness of coffee takes it to a different league than tea, though if you need yet another reason to extol its virtues, try this: new research published in the British Medical Journal (November 22, 2017) has found that drinking three or four cups of coffee a day can help you lead a longer life and even stave off memory related diseases such as dementia.
A Study with Substance
The research is based on evidence obtained from over 200 studies, which find that drinking moderate amounts of your favorite brew daily, can reduce the risk of developing heart disease, some cancers, diabetes, liver disease, dementia, gallstones, and gout. Logically, it can also lower your chances of dying. The researchers stated that coffee should be avoided by those at an increased risk for bone fractures and by pregnant women, and warned that there is still uncertainty about the effect of consuming coffee at higher levels. It is important, they added to note that coffee is often consumed with sugar/artificial sweeteners, unhealthy fats, and other additives that can wrest from their health benefits.
Are All Coffees Created Equal?
Studies have shown that instant as well as freshly brewed coffee made at home have powerful antioxidants, yet brewed coffee is ideal because it is rich and aromatic enough to be enjoyed alone – and the best way to reap the benefits of coffee is sans sugar, creamers, or flavorings. As noted by Dr. Mercola, coffee beans are actually one of the most heavily pesticide-sprayed crops. Therefore, when you make your coffee at home, you can select organically grown varieties that will deliver all the benefits of coffee without the harmful effects that conventionally grown varieties can contain.
How Can Coffee Prevent So Many Diseases?
Coffee contains a wealth of components, and scientists are just beginning to understand how the unique synergy between them can optimize health. In one study, moderate consumption of coffee was linked to a lower buildup of calcium in arteries. Another study found that coffee can reduce the likelihood of skin cancer by suppressing UVB-induced cancer. Coffee can also protect against the damage caused by free radicals, reduce inflammation, and have many other effects that significantly lower the rate of skin cancer. Caffeine has been found to help keep multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease at bay, because it has neuroprotective properties that lower inflammation (which is also an important factor in the development of both heart disease and cancer). Coffee could even help prevent dementia by promoting the production of important neurotransmitters, including dopamine and serotonin; it additionally contributes to the production of new neurons, which is vital for maintaining brain health.
If you once felt guilty about starting the day with a cup of joe, you can now officially stop. Turn breakfast into a fun part of the day by making your own coffee from scratch, after selecting organic, healthier varieties that will help you stave off a host of diseases. If you have any medical conditions, of course, consult your doctor first regarding whether or not coffee is an ideal product for you.https://www.aartiinformatics.com/health/fitness/coffee-can-help-live-longer/https://www.aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Coffee-Can-Help-You-Live-Longer.jpghttps://www.aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Coffee-Can-Help-You-Live-Longer-150x79.jpgFITNESSCoffee Can Help You Live Longer,Coffee components,Coffees Created Equal,How Can Coffee Prevent dissease,How to live longer,memory related diseases,powerful antioxidantsIf you cannot conceive starting the day with any other hot beverage except coffee, welcome to the club!
