We’ve been hearing for years that coffee has certain properties that are good for our health. But, now Prevention Magazine reports that a slew of new studies confirm that our daily cup, or cups, deliver a major health jolt. In fact, the more cups the better in some cases! Prevention says that its because coffee delivers a rich source of nutrients that lower cholesterol, improve insulin sensitivity and destroy damaged cells. And even the caffeine in our coffee is good for us. It’s protective! So don’t reach for the decaf unless you have problems sleeping, or suffer from headaches or high blood pressure. Here’s what the studies found concerning your daily intake:
- At least 1 cup per day: lowers your risk of early death from all causes by 37%.
- At least 2 cups per day: reduces your risk of death from heart disease by 25%.
- At least 3 cups per day: slashes your risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s by 65%.
- 4 or more cups per day: Makes you 56% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
So, the bottom line? Have another cup of coffee!! May we suggest one of our favorites: French Kiss.
