9 Reasons Why You Should Drink Coffee

Fair Trade Coffee

1.) Longer Life

Studies show that coffee consumers are less likely to die from many of the leading causes of death; stroke, coronary heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease

2.) Glucose (Sugar) Processing

In reference to the diabetes from above, studies show that coffee drinkers are better at processing glucose, reducing the likelihood of type 2 diabetes.

3.) Parkinson's Disease

Studies show that caffeine can help lower the chance of developing Parkinson's disease, and for those that already have the disease, caffeine can help them control their movements.

4.) Liver Function

Studies show that coffee can protect your liver by helping maintain a healthier amount of enzymes.

5.) The Darker the Roast, the Stronger the DNA

There is a strong positive correlation between the amount of coffee consumed (darker the better) and the decrease in DNA strand breakage. This DNA breakage leads to things like cancer and tumors.

6.) An Alzheimer's Antidote

Studies show that the consumption of at least two cups of regular coffee a day will severely lower your chance of developing Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

7.) An Essential Nutrients Cocktail

First of all, coffee is very high in antioxidants. Studies show that most people get more antioxidants from their coffee than they do from their fruits and vegetables. Also, one cup of coffee can give it's consumers a healthy amount of nutrients such as; Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), Manganese, Potassium, Magnesium and Niacin (Vitamin B3).

8.) Fat Burner

Caffeine is found in just about every fat burning supplement and there is a good reason for it. Studies show that caffeine can increase your metabolism by 3-11%

9.) Super Brain

Caffeine is a stimulant that blocks the neurotransmitter called Adenosine, an inhibitor. This leads to the firing of other neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine and dopamine, which helps increase brain functions (mood, memory, energy, reaction times and cognitive abilities).
