5 Reasons to Drink Coffee

Did you know that, on average, Americans drink more than three cups of coffee every day, with over 146 billion cups consumed each year? And the good news is that coffee is not as bad as people say it is. It is one beverage that comes with a ton of health benefits. So, for those who do not really enjoy a hot cup of joe, here are five reasons why it is good. 

  • Coffee reduces the risk of medical complications
    Coffee drinkers have a slightly lower chance of developing colon cancer, one of the major conditions found in men. Coffee also helps improve liver health by promoting the production of certain essential enzymes vital for the organ. And lastly, regular coffee drinkers are also less likely to suffer from heart failure, stroke, diabetes-related illnesses, and even kidney diseases. 
  • Coffee can prove to be good for your teeth
    While many say that drinking coffee can stain your pearly whites, black coffee actually kills off bacteria that settle on the molars. Caffeine helps actively prevent tooth decay in this manner and also reduces the risk of several periodontal diseases. Research indicates that men and women who drink coffee regularly have a low risk of gum diseases, too. Note that the findings did vary, as there were a lot of factors that come into play. But, overall, drinking coffee can help protect your teeth for a better part of the day.
  • Coffee increases longevity
    Fascinating, right? Several studies and research conducted over the years suggest that coffee drinkers live healthier and longer lives. The reason being all the inherent health benefits of caffeine reduces the risk of chronic diseases, critical illnesses, and even help promote better organ and body function. Studies also show that people who drink multiple cups of coffee throughout the day have a 24% less chance of mortality due to premature onset disease and their complications. 
  • Black coffee is a system cleanser
    Black coffee is a natural diuretic. This means that the beverage enhances all the internal functions linked to the flushing out of toxins and excretion of waste. Basically, a cup of coffee helps cleanse the body by increasing the frequency of urination, one of the most efficient ways of cleansing. It is also why coffee drinkers don’t fall sick often. 
  • Coffee gives a natural boost to the mind and body
    Studies indicate that caffeine in the beverage enhances metabolic activity, which promotes better fat burning and weight loss. Caffeine is also an excellent stimulant for the brain, and there are studies that support the findings of coffee drinkers being smarter than the average person. It actively blocks inhibitory neurotransmitters and triggers an increase in norepinephrine and dopamine that allow neurons to fire more rapidly. So, coffee drinkers can focus better, are in a good mood mostly, have better memory, and develop better responses and cognitive reasoning.
