Copious Cups of Coffee Please

While taking care of your family, your pets, your home and your community you should be doing the same for your body.

According to this research, drinking coffee might just be a great way to keep your body healthy and ward off certain diseases.

Benefits Digestive Health
A 10-year study in Japan including 96,000 adults found that drinking three or more cups of coffee per day cut the colon cancer risk in women in half.

Decreases Risk of Diabetes
Researchers at Harvard followed more than 125,000 men and women for more than 10 years and found that drinking six cups of coffee daily helps in the prevention of type 2 diabetes.

Six or more cups of coffee daily cut the risk of men getting diabetes by more than 50 percent compared to men who didn’t drink coffee at all. Drinking six cups daily trimmed the diabetes risk for women by nearly 30 percent.

May Prevent Strokes
A Swedish study published in 2011 reported that drinking one or more cups of coffee a day will lower risk of getting a stroke by 22 to 25 percent. More than 34,000 women were followed for slightly more than 10 years.

Heart Diseases and Cardiovascular Diseases
Both diseases are reduced by approximately 23 percent when drinking 2 to 3 cups of coffee per day. The caffeine increases the blood pressure, but it does not post any risk of increasing cardiovascular diseases. Coffee is said to help with endurance and also help block out pain.

Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
The risk of getting Alzheimer’s and Dementia are reduced. There were studies done with light to moderate drinkers, and the results were those that drink coffee moderately (3 to 4 cups a day) have a significantly less chance to get Alzheimer’s or Dementia.

Improves Men’s Health
Another study by Harvard published last year followed almost 48,000 men for 20 years and found that the risk of prostate cancer was 20 percent lower in those who drank six or more cups of coffee a day. Drinking one to three cups of coffee per day reduced the risk of fatal prostate cancer in men by 30 percent.

Mood Booster
A study by Harvard School of Public Health has found that women that drink coffee regularly were at a 20 percent lower risk of depression compare to women that do not drink coffee. More than 50,000 women participated in the study. A study in Finland showed similar results in men that drink coffee versus men that do not drink coffee.

Keep in mind that adding too much or too many extra ingredients may result in less of a health benefit.
