Coffee… what is it good for? Absolutely everything!

Coffee… what is it good for? Absolutely everything!

6 April 2018

Coffee.
How does it work?
Does anyone really even know?
You’ve probably read it all before…
“Coffee will make you live longer”

“If you drink 4 coffees a day you’ll grow an inch taller in 3 years” or whatever the ridiculous headline is that particular week. We can’t even count the amount of studies presently trying to figure what exactly this cup of goodness does for us, but you can be sure we’ll continue to use any headline as an excuse to justify our love for the liquid gold!    

Coffee is the first thing we think of in the morning, and it’s what we’re looking forward to when we go to bed at night… so we thought the least we could do was ask ‘Dr. Google’ what the potential benefits of our little habit could be.
Our friends online insist “coffee is actually very healthy” and their top 13 reasons why are:

  1. Coffee can improve your energy levels and even make you smarter   
  2. Coffee can help burn fat
  3. The caffeine in coffee can improve physical performance
  4. Coffee is full of essential nutrients
  5. Coffee may lower your risk of type II Diabetes
  6. Coffee may protect you from Alzheimer’s
  7. Caffeine may lower the risk of Parkinson’s
  8. Coffee appears to have protective effects on the liver
  9. Coffee can fight depression and make you happier
  10. Coffee drinkers have a lower risk of some types of cancer
  11. Coffee does not cause heart disease and may lower the risk of a stroke
  12. Coffee may help you live longer
  13. Coffee is the biggest source of antioxidants in the western diet

So, it’s settled – coffee is good for you, and we don’t care what anyone else has to say.
Better yet, by sharing this information with you we’ve justified your daily cup of coffee (or two!) too.

See you in the morning…
