5 Reasons To Enjoy More Coffee

Diet and Nutrition News & Advice, Featured, Mobile Slider Featured

As if the wonders of the morning ritual that is ingesting a hot cup of caffeine wasn’t enough reason for you to love coffee, turns out there is a convincing amount of evidence that regularly indulging in a cup of joe may actually be good for your health over the long run. This assumes, of course, that you’re not polluting your coffee with oodles of heart-clogging cream and sweet but deadly sugar. Cups of black coffee, on the other hand, look like a good bet when it comes to drinking something for your health. We’ll take a look at the details in the below list…

1. Decreased Mortality

To put it as broadly as possible, drinking coffee on a regular basis may actually reduce your chances of dying from every imaginable cause. That’s right. And there is a heap of evidence to back up that eyebrow-raising claim. More than 35 studies have been done covering more than 2 million people that indicate coffee directly influences what one meta-study published in Public Health Nutrition calls “all-cause mortality.”

According to the study, light to moderate amounts of coffee is “associated with a reduced risk of death from all causes, particularly in women.” As for what is it about coffee that links its consumption to reducing the risk of death? That part is still unclear, but the statistical association is clearly there. As for the amount of coffee per day, the study indicates that the benefits of coffee consumption increased slightly with greater intake. So those in the study that drank 3 to 5 cups a day saw more benefits than those that drank 1 cup a day.
