The Benefits of Coffee

The Benefits of Coffee

If coffee isn’t part of your morning routine, you may want to reconsider! Around 62% of Americans drink coffee every day. On average, Americans consume about three cups per day. Most Americans make coffee a necessary part of their morning routines, caffeine being the motivator to get up and going. While coffee consumption is mainly used to kickstart the day, coffee-drinkers may be experiencing additional benefits compared to those who avoid the beverage. 

Benefits To Drinking Coffee

Promotes Happiness 

Most coffee drinkers would agree with this statement already, but there’s more to this claim! Studies have shown that women who drink 4 or more cups of coffee daily are at a lower risk of developing depression. Ladies, if you want that extra cup to get you through the day, we support!

Prevents Heart Disease 

If you avoid coffee due to heart disease concerns, we have some fantastic news! The claim that coffee consumption increases your risk of heart disease and high blood pressure is an old myth. In fact, according to a study done in 2012, coffee consumed in moderation may actually protect you against heart failure

Contains Important Nutrients 

Coffee isn’t just good to keep you awake or start your day. Making coffee a part of your daily meals is an easy way to get in certain nutrients, such as potassium, magnesium and sodium. Next time someone tells you coffee doesn’t have any nutritional value, let them know they’re wrong! 

May Help Prevent Dementia

We have some promising news! That extra cup of coffee may be what keeps your mind sharp and healthy when you get older. In fact, it may help prevent you from developing serious diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s. According to Hopkins Medicine, two cups of coffee may help women aged 65 years and up reduce their risk of developing dementia.
