Should We Really Be Drinking A Cup Of Coffee Everyday?
Many Americans love having a nice hot cup of coffee when they wake up in the morning.
The question has always been is this healthy for us to do?
64% of Americans drink coffee daily; in fact, coffee is the most drank beverage in the world.
Americans alone consumes 400 million cups of coffee a day.
66% of woman and 62% of men drink coffee everyday.
Some people drink coffee for energy
While others because they love the taste.
Drinking coffee everyday actually offers numerous health benefits.
Let's take a look at 10 reasons you should drink coffee every day.
Coffee Can Reduce Your Risk Of Developing Type 2 Diabetes
Over 9% of Americans now have diabetes, and the number one factor behind its development is a poor diet and overall bad lifestyle choices.
Although drinking too much coffee is itself a bad lifestyle choice, drinking a couple of cups daily is not only okay, it also reduces your risk of developing diabetes.
Scientists at Harvard School of Public Health evaluated data from 128,000 healthcare professionals who were surveyed about their diet choices for more than 20 years.
During those two decades, 7,300 of them were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, but the ones who drank more than one cup of coffee daily, had an 11% lower risk for the disease.
Coffee contains Cafestol which increases the body's insulin secretions which help reduce blood glucose levels.
Coffee Can Prevent Cavities
One of the main health benefits of drinking black coffee is that it decreases tooth decay.
Several studies have shown that roasted coffee beans are antibacterial against the Streptococcus mutans, the bacterium that causes tooth decay.
Studies also show that roasted coffee prevents the absorption of such bacteria by the teeth.
In the studies, various types of coffee beans were used, both roasted and unroasted, Arabia and Robusta.
While all of them provided similar benefits, the roasted varieties seemed to be more active in preventing bacteria from sticking to the teeth.
This is a great reason to drink coffee every day, however be aware that if you add cream and sugar to your coffee you increase your risk of tooth decay.
Coffee May Reduce Your Risk Of Developing Alzheimer's
The cases of Alzheimer's disease are growing at a scary rates, 1 in every 20 people over the age of 65 and 1 in every 1,000 under the age of 65 suffer from Alzheimer's.
44 million people suffer from Alzheimer's Disease.
That's pretty scary right?
Some studies suggest that drinking dark roast black coffee over a lifetime can reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer's.
These studies showed that both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee had the same result, so that is yet another reason to drink coffee every day.
Coffee Improves Your Mood
Coffee contains caffeine, a nootropic that improves your mood and cognitive functioning.
In short, it makes you more alert and also boosts your mood.
This is especially noticeable if you've been drinking coffee every day for a year and then suddenly stop.
You might experience a downshift in your mood, and only by drinking more coffee are you able to raise your spirits.
Just don't drink to much because it can cause you to have sleep issues which will end up making you grumpy.
Coffee Is Good For Your Liver
Avoid alcohol and drink more coffee is the advice here.
While the alcohol can damage your liver beyond repair, drinking coffee every day is a great way to protect it.
When your body digests caffeine it creates a chemical called paraxanthine.
Paraxanthine is thought to help fight liver cancer, alcohol liver damage, and Hepatitis C.
This is another great reason to drink coffee everyday!
Coffee Could Prevent Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is now one of the fastest growing cancers in the world, and more and more people each year are being diagnosed with it.
An estimated 40% to 50% of people who live to be 65 will develop at least on skin cancer in their life time.
There are things you can do to cut your risk, and this includes drinking more caffeinated coffee.
Drinking decaf coffee doesn't have the same effects.
Scientists have theorized that caffeine is responsible for this, studies show that caffeine has an enzyme called Ataxia Telangiectasia and Rad3 also known as ATR.
ATR helps repair damaged skins cells among other things.
Coffee Improves Your Cardiovascular Health
We are always being told that coffee is bad for our heart.
While is is true that too much coffee is bad for your heart, drinking a cup of coffee every day is ok.
If you drank 30 cups a day, as the great French writer Balzac was reported to have done, you are putting yourself at massive risk of having a heart attack.
However, if you drink coffee every day in moderation, you can actually improve the health of your heart.
Coffee Strengthens Your DNA
You might be wondering why you'd need to strengthen your DNA.
But why wouldn't you?
DNA strands can break.
To prevent this rather alarming thing from happening all too often, you could drink more coffee, as caffeine tightens DNA integrity using the ATR enzyme.
Coffee Is Rich In Antioxidants
Antioxidants are your body's first line of defense against rogue free radicals, and coffee contains more than many fruits, including oranges and grapes.
Coffee is the best way to get your antioxidants because it contains 200 to 550 milligrams per cup.
Remember moderation is key always to much of anything can be a bad thing especially caffeine.
But simply put a cup of coffee every day is perfectly ok.
Coffee Could Help You Live Longer
Okay, let's expand on that carrot at the top of this article.
According to Ming Ding, M.D., "Bioactive compounds in coffee reduce insulin resistance and systematic inflammation. They might be responsible for the inverse association between coffee and mortality. However, more studies are needed to investigate the biological mechanisms producing these effects."
In short, there are many good reasons to drink coffee every day.
Sarah's Tips For A Better Cup Of Coffee
I do love a nice hot cup of coffee in the morning to wake up.
I really like the Folgers Country Roast it has a nice flavor to it.
I am not much for black coffee.
I try to add somethings that will make the flavor better for me.
I try to stay away from to much sugar if I do add sugar to my coffee I like just a small teaspoon.
I am a sucker for extra creamy Reddi Whip though it just adds a pretty touch to the coffee.
I sometimes like to add some sprinkles for the holiday seasons.
I love Starbucks caramel macchiato creamer it is literally my top favorite because I still get that nice coffee flavor with a hint of caramel and I don't need to add any sugar.
I also really like Coffee-mate peppermint mocha creamer in the winter months love the Christmas in my cup affect.
I love to drink my coffee on my porch in the summer time the smell of the summer morning air just makes my cup of coffee all the more sweeter.
I also love iced coffee for more of an afternoon drink on days I just need a little more push.
You can use a cold brew coffee maker to make your iced coffee.
I personally do not recommend coffee on mornings that you didn't rest well the night before.
I've found that when I'm not somewhat rested and I drink coffee I end up crashing or just feeling worn out and tired.
I really hope that you enjoyed learning all the benefits of drinking coffee and that it eases some questions you may have had about drinking coffee.
