Coffee is more than just a go-to drink in the morning to hit the ground running. If had in moderation coffee can be great for UR health too. Here are a few surprising health benefits of drinking coffee moderately. Did you know that drinking a cup of coffee everyday can reduce the proliferation of  fatty liver disease?

Research conducted a few years back verified what many of us believe intuitively: coffee is happy tea. Drinking coffee has been found to be linked to positive emotions like joy, compassion, love, fulfillment, peace, and yes, happiness. The findings also indicated that there were no negative emotions linked to coffee consumption.

CNS stimulant

Caffeine also acts as a stimulant to the central nervous system. The most noticeable effect when it reaches UR brain is alertness. You will feel more awake and less tired so treating or managing drowsiness, headaches, and migraines is very common via coffee. Caffeine is the most commonly used stimulant of the central-nerve-system. Caffeine increases energy production in the brain, but reduces cerebral blood flow at the same time, causing a relative hypoperfusion of the brain. Caffeine activates noradrenaline neurons, and it appears to affect local dopamine release.

Rich in antioxidants

In reality, coffee beans are the seeds of a small bright red or yellow fruit. Both the fruits and seeds  are packed with antioxidants. A few studies also found that coffee was the single biggest contributor to overall antioxidant intake.

Decreases inflammation

It has been shown that chlorogenic acid, a polyphenol abundant in coffee, decreases inflammation, and can play a key role in protecting against chronic diseases , including obesity.

So just in case you inquire about the coffee fruit, it can be turned into compost, or it can be dried so brewed as tea. This is also used in energy drinks products, as the fruit also contains caffeine.

May help protect against Parkinson’s diseases

Various studies have shown that caffeine, which is present in coffee and many other beverages, may help protect against Parkinson’s disease. A 2017 meta-analysis findings indicated a correlation between coffee consumption and a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease, even among people who smoke. The study also found that people who drink coffee can have less chance of developing depression and cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s.

Reduces the risks of type 2 diabetes

A 2018 meta-analysis of 30 studies concluded that coffee consumption is inversely linked to type 2 diabetes risk. Researchers found that growth in coffee intake decreased the risk of contracting the disease by 6 per cent for each cup each day. Scientists believe the potential explanations for the correlation include the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of coffee, the ability to improve calorie burning, and the impact of health-protective gut microbes on content and diversity.

May help lower the risks of other disease

Studies show that coffee intake can protect against some cancers including cancers of the breast, colorectal, endometrial, and prostate, as well as heart disease and Parkinson’s disease. Lifelong intake of coffee / caffeine is also associated with cognitive decline prevention, and a decreased risk of stroke. Caffeinated coffee also increases alertness in terms of brain function, and can also improve UR memory and alertness after consumption.
