Coffee helps prevent diabetes

“Drinking 3-4 cups of coffee per day is associated with a 25% lower risk of type 2 diabetes.”

Coffee lowers risk of heart disease

“Looking at five studies of coffee consumption in Sweden and Finland that involved 140,200 people and 6,522 heart failure events, researchers determined that four northern European servings of coffee a day – about two commercial 8-ounce cups of coffee in the U.S. – helped prevent heart failure by 11 percent.”

Coffee lowers risk of stroke

“The study led by Susanna Larsson of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm followed women aged 49 to 83 for an average of 10 years, and found that those who drank more than one cup of coffee a day had a 22% to 25% lowered risk of stroke, compared with women who drank less.”

Livers love coffee

“One analysis of nine studies found that every 2-cup increase in daily coffee intake reduced liver cancer risk by 43 percent.”

Increases brain power

“Coffee increases your adrenaline. Adrenaline is known for putting your body in a state of flight or fight which can translate to an increased awareness of your surroundings.”

Bonus: Coffee Tastes Better

Coffee has over 800 aromatic compounds. To give you an idea of how many that is, wine has around only 200 aromatic compounds.”
