Worldwide, coffee is our much loved morning beverage, after-dinner drink, and a pick-me-up for everything in between. So it's good to know then that for most of us ,drinking coffee in moderation can actually benefit our health.
1. It can help lower your risk of a Stroke
If you have a few cuppas throughout the day, don't worry, you're probably doing more good than bad. Evidence shows that those who drink a moderate amount of coffee (one-three cups a day) have a lower incidence of stroke compared to non coffee drinkers.
2. Decreased risk of Alzheimer's
We all fear getting old. With the number of people with Alzheimer’s disease predicted to rise to 1 million by 2025 according to the Alzheimer’s Society, losing our memory and mental sharpness is also a pressing concern too.
Luckily for us, coffee can help. Participants in a 2010 study who drank three to five cups of coffee per day had a 65 per cent decreased chance of developing the disease or dementia in later life.
3. It can help you work out
Having a coffee before a work out can improve athletic performance. It increases the number of fatty acids in the bloodstream, allowing muscles to absorb or burn fats for fuel.
The small supply of carbohydrates in athletes’ bodies can then be saved for later on.
4. It's a natural way to beat Cellulite
Well who wouldn't want that! The caffeine and antioxidants in coffee help diminish pesky dimples making our skin appear smoother and more toned. Hurrah!!!
