Health Benefits of Coffee

Health Benefits of Coffee

Before you try to break that caffeine habit at the start of the New Year, consider all the benefits your morning cup of Joe may be providing. Studies have shown that, compared to those that don`t drink coffee, coffee drinkers are less likely to develop Parkinson`s disease, dementia and even type 2 diabetes. They have fewer cases of stroke, heart rhythm issues and certain cancers. It`s been proven that coffee will temporarily increase blood pressure, but long-term studies show that there isn`t a risk of developing chronic high blood pressure like once thought.

Coffee helps prevent diabetes by decreasing the body`s C-peptide levels. This is a substance in the blood that indicates a risk of diabetes and insulin resistance. Coffee`s antioxidant properties have been linked to a 50% less chance of cancer including breast, colon and rectal cancers. A regular coffee habit may even increase your metabolism, especially the resting metabolism rate.

What`s more, caffeinated coffee has been shown to lower the chances of gallbladder disease and gallstones, although this wasn`t noted in those who were drinking the decaffeinated option. It even protects the liver, reducing the incidence of cirrhosis, which often leads to a complete loss of liver function. People who already have cirrhosis and begin drinking coffee tend to see a lower risk of developing the liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma. The beverage acts like a cleanser for all of the body`s internal organs.

Alternative medicine practitioners often recommend coffee enemas to stimulate and cleanse the colon, an organ often linked to the health and function of the rest of the body. Drinking coffee can prevent constipation and reduce the risk of gout in middle-aged men.

With so many health benefits associated with coffee, it seems like a good idea for everyone, but pregnant women should not consume coffee because it can lead to premature delivery and low birth weight babies. Coffee can also cause changes in sleep patterns and some people may be susceptible to the coffee jitters, which can be easily remedied by switching to decaffeinated. People with ulcers, gastritis and colitis should consult a doctor before drinking coffee.

When made at home without the extra flavoring and creamers, coffee itself is inexpensive and contains as many health benefits as some herbal teas. Use a high-quality coffee or even natural coffee beans to get the most out of this antioxidant powerhouse. The Gourmet CoffeeXpress. Coffee isn't just delicious, but also great for preventative health.
