Did you know that a daily dose of coffee can actually benefit your health? While a lot of people reach for a bowl of fruit in the mornings, others tend to reach for a coffee cup. Ironically, both instances are doing the same thing—yes! Coffee is a fruit. And while it’s not eaten in the traditional way, it still has health benefits that you can add to your checklist for New Year Resolutions.
Lower Risk of Death
The University of Southern California research team stated that those who drink a lot of coffee tend to have a lower risk of death.
Reduced Risk of Heart Disease
Studies have also proven that drinking 3-5 cups of coffee a day reduces the chance of heart disease.
Reduced Risk of Cancer
Globally, cancer is one of the leading causes of death. The University of Utah’s department of family and preventive medicine justified that each extra cup of coffee reduced the rate of getting diagnosed with all cancer by 3 percent.
Drinking at least four cups of coffee reduces the risk of getting diagnosed with diabetes 53% compared to the those who do not drink coffee.
Contains Fundamental Nutrients
A basic cup of coffee contains Magnesium and Niacin (B3), Manganese and Potassium, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), and Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5).
Can Fight Depression
Worldwide, depression is the leading cause of disabilities. More than 300 people suffer from depression. According to a Harvard study, women who drink four or more cups of coffee daily were 53% unlikely to commit suicide.
