Supposedly, coffee has countless health benefits, ranging from cutting down the risk factors of liver ailments, heart diseases and diabetes type 2, to promoting a longer lifespan and stronger health. Moreover, it also proves effective at sharpening the memory and treating the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
According to research, several of these benefits are real. Caffeine has been scientifically proven to bring about marked improvements amongst patients suffering from Parkinson’s.
Caffeinated and decaf coffee aids in reducing the risk factors that contribute to the development of diabetes type 2, along with cutting down the risks of several kinds of cancers, primarily prostate and colon cancers. However, keep in mind that it also increases the risk factors of lung cancer.
Keep in mind that all scientific research highlights the benefits of black coffee, not coffee loaded with syrup, preservatives, cream and sugar. Several researchers have highlighted the benefits of consuming around 400 milligrams of home-brewed coffee, which roughly makes up five 8-ounce cups.
If you are suffering from hypertension, be sure to consult your doctor because caffeine consumption often leads to short-term blood pressure spikes. But if you are not a coffee-drinker, the benefits are not nearly enough to start drinking now.
