Benefits of Coffee

1. Longer Life Span

In a study done by the New England Journal of Medicine, it was found that peoples ages 51 to 70 that drank at least one cup of coffee a day were less likely to die from diabetes or heart disease. This might be because of the special antioxidants found in coffee.

2. Gives a Boost of Energy

We all know why most people like to have their “cup of joe” in the morning. If you ask an avid coffee drinker why they drink coffee, it is most likely because they need caffeine to get their day going. Coffee does not just serve as the daily “pick me up”. It is also thought to help lower levels of depression.

3. May Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

A recent study led by Harvard showed that people who increase the amount of coffee intake by 8 ounces a day are 11% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. However for those who lowered the amount of coffee they drank each day, they were 17% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
