There has been a lot of buzz lately about new studies showing the health benefits of coffee. Nutritional science always seems to be producing contradictory studies, but there’s been some pretty solid evidence that coffee has positive effects on your health. Coffee, when consumed in moderation, can be a mood and energy booster that brightens up the day. Here are a few more ways coffee could be good for your health in the long run:
1. Drinking 3-5 cups of coffee per day could lower your risk for a heart attack.
2. Coffee may help prevent type 2 diabetes.
3. Some medical professionals believe that coffee may be neuroprotective, protecting against diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Many of the studies emphasized that it was those people that consumed a fair amount of coffee (3-5 servings per day) that showed the lowest association with disease. So drink up!
