Health Briefs TV extols the benefits of coffee and not just to wake us up in the morning.
It is recently reported that coffee reduces the risk of developing heart disease. Additionally, drinking three to five cups of java per day can cut a person’s risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by more than 20 percent. A Heart study conducted in 2015 of 25,000 men and women with no signs of heart disease found that those who drank three to five cups per day had the lowest amount of calcium buildup in their coronary arteries.
People who are at risk for Type 2 diabetes may find that having a few cups of coffee per day may lower that risk. Additional benefits for coffee lovers are that it can improve cognitive function. It can prevent the formation of amyloid plaques and the buildup of plaque in the brain, which are sure indicators of Alzheimer’s disease. Health Briefs TV recognizes that coffee is rich anti-oxidants which can reduce inflammation and the deterioration of brain cells during the aging process.
The consumption of coffee also helps reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer. A 2011 study found that women who drank more than five cups a day were 57% less likely to develop estrogen-related breast cancers. Men who drank more than five cups have 59% reduced risk of prostate cancer reoccurrence compared to those who drank less. Coffee is also good for the skin and organs, and helps boost energy during exercise, as long as it is not full of cream and sugar. Bottoms up.
