Coffee Protects Your Heart
Apparently, coffee protects your heart. In fact, two or more cups per day could possibly protect against heart failure – and this comes from a Harvard Study. It has been found that, in instances, where four cups of coffee had been consumed each day, the risk of heart failure had been lowered by 11 percent. It has also been discovered that consuming large degrees of caffeine – that is coffee as well as green tea, has the ability to lower most people’s risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease. Funny enough, this is found truer for women than men.
Coffee Helps You Burn Fat
Ok, so after reading this you probably just want to get a big cup of coffee. Caffeine is found in most fat burning supplements. Caffeine actually boost the metabolism by 3-11%. Some studies show that caffeine can actually increase fat burning, by as much as 10% in obese people and 29% in thinner people. The only catch is that if you are a regular coffee drinker, these effects will diminish.
Coffee Possibly Protects You From Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
The thought of Alzheimer’s is scary. It is the most common neurodegenerative disease and the leading cause of dementia across the globe. Unfortunately, it affects many of our parents and grandparents over the age of 65. At the present time, there is no known cure for it. Several studies have actually shown that coffee drinkers have up to 65% lower risk of getting Alzheimer’s. There is also a lot of evidence that green tea extract reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s in a big way as well as other forms of dementia.
