1. Coffee Is Actually Life
Despite its innocent appearance, coffee is full of antioxidants, which prevent damaging chemicals from wreaking havoc on our bodies and minds. Seeing that coffee drinkers are less likely to get many diseases, it makes sense that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of premature death.
In two very large studies, drinking coffee was associated with a 20% lower risk of death in men and a 26% lower risk of death in women, over a period of 18-24 years as well as diabetics who drank coffee had a 30% lower risk of death during a 20 year study period.
2. Anti-Oxidant Rich
Coffee beans contain disease-ravaging antioxidants, called quinines, which become more potent after roasting. This type of antioxidant, along with the magnesium found naturally in coffee, affect blood sugar levels and are thought to be responsible for the link to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes.
The average person who eats a typical Western diet actually gets more antioxidants from coffee than fruits and vegetables combined!
3. A Breath of Fresh Air
Coffee can give you the kick-start that most of us need on a Monday morning. The stimulant called caffeine, which is actually the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world, can help people feel less tired and increase energy levels. Many controlled trials in humans show that coffee improves various aspects of brain function. This includes memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction times and general cognitive function.
The facts above are just a few and based on general coffee ingredients. Royal Coffee Roasters specialises in quality artisan coffee. To extract the greatest health benefits out of your coffee, be sure to choose fresh rather than instant.
