We have to admit, we are slightly (OK very) obsessed with coffee here… but hey, what’s not to love?
Why we love it:
Coffee is fuel for so many of us, and with good reason! On average it takes only 10 minutes for the caffeine in our cuppa to kick in. And with that boost…anything is possible!
Stimulation isn’t the only benefit of coffee though. Your risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease is lowered. It works to prevent heart disease, multiple sclerosis and even some forms of cancer.
Cavities, and melanoma are also held off by this wonderful beverage and USDA’s new 2015 dietary guidelines even go as far as to advise people to have 3 to 5 cups per day, because it’s good for their overall health and reduces the risk of disease.
It also reduces the risk of depression (we all know that ‘high’ we get after a double espresso!), protects the liver and drinking two cups after exercise is proved to cut out post-workout muscle pain by up to 48%!
Let me think…anything I left out? Aaah, Harvard scientists have proved that coffee brings about a lower risk of mortality. True story! Apparently, the more you drink of it the longer you live…*places tongue firmly in cheek*
Well maybe not quite, but 3-5 cups is the amount that is proved to perk up survival rates the most (the risk of premature death being reduced by 15% compared to zero-coffee drinkers)…
Just so long as you don’t overdo it:
Apparently, for an adult, the lethal dose is 100 cups in 4 hrs! You would have to be quite some coffee drinker… Still, you’ve been warned.
So, our conclusion is that everyone who drinks coffee will most likely live happily (and successfully) ever after.
Not that we need an extra excuse, or are trying to convert any avid tea drinkers out there… It’s just kind of adds to your next coffee experience – you can drink deeply, close your eyes, and enjoy the warm and fuzzy feeling of all the health benefits sinking in…
