Coffee Is Good For You

Did you know that Kafexpress coffee is good for you?  Sure, you might argue that just because you like it, but it really is true!  And here are a few examples:

COFFEE IS A SUPER FOOD

First of all, you should know that coffee is a super food.  In just one cup of coffee, for example, you can get:

  • 11 percent RDA of Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
  • 6 percent RDA of Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
  • 3 percent RDA of Manganese and Potassium
  • 3 percent RDA of Magnesium and Niacin (Vitamin B3)

Remember, this is per cup! Most people drink more than one cup of coffee in a single day.

COFFEE MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD

A 2011 Harvard study found that women who drank at least 4 cups of coffee per day had a 20 percent lower risk for depression.  Another study, which looked at more than 208,000 men and women, suggested that four or more cups per day might also reduce suicide risk by as much as 53 percent.

One reason for this might have something to do with the energy benefits of coffee. Studies also show that coffee can help people to feel less tired and have more focus.  Actually, this has long been the reason coffee is the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance on the planet.  The energy benefits are a result of coffees higher natural caffeine content; when absorbed into the bloodstream, caffeine blocks the inhibitory neurotransmitter Adenosine, which allows for other euphoric neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine to circulate.

COFFEE PROTECTS VITAL ORGANS

Studies continue to show that coffee can have profound positive effect on many of your organs. For one, studies suggest that people who drink every day could reduce risk for Type 2 diabetes by anywhere from 23 to 67 percent (depending upon the study you read).

In addition, though, some studies also report that coffee could help to reduce risk for Alzheimer’s disease.  Yes, that means coffee can protect your brain—by as much as 65 percent—but you can maximize your protection by including coffee as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Other studies indicate that coffee seems to also help protect the liver. Many diseases can affect the liver—hepatitis, fatty liver, cirrhosis—and coffee might help protect drinkers from liver disease(s) by as much as 80 percent.
