The health benefits of coffee
Coffee is undoubtedly one of the most widely accepted beverages in the Western world, and it seems that it is no longer as damaging as it seems, but that recent research shows quite the opposite.
And it is that the consumption of coffee can be beneficial for both our mental and physical health, and this is affirmed by the school of Public Health TH Chan of Harvard among others.
It seems that this beverage can even protect us from certain diseases such as the development of a melanoma, liver pathologies, diabetes and some types of cancer.
And if that were not enough, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, said that it could reduce the risk of death by 10% in cases of patients with heart disease, respiratory or cerebrovascular lesions.
What are those properties that make it so beneficial?
Although we do not believe it, coffee contains nutrients such as vitamin B2, B5, potassium, manganese and niacin, which are essential for the proper functioning of our organism.
And of course, caffeine, one of the key elements when it comes to protecting us from the dreaded diseases.
It is believed that caffeine can play an important role in preventing diabetes up to even 50%, always coupled with a healthy lifestyle.
People who consume coffee regularly may also be less likely to get a neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer or Parkinson.
Caffeine would also be responsible, so those who take decaf do not have this advantage.
Our liver seems to be also protected, especially when it comes to cirrhosis, but your eating habits will be key when it comes to getting this type of disease.
And if it were not enough, according to Harvard University, drinking this beverage can reduce and combat depression by up to 20% in women and even reduce breast or colon cancer, as well as being less likely to have a heart attack.
With all these benefits, does anyone plan to stop drinking that good cup of coffee that encourages the day? And is that a good coffee, especially those that are prepared in a traditional Italian coffee, is also a pleasure that we can not resist.
Of course, we should not forget to take it in moderation, as the specialists recommend not to exceed four cups a day, because excessive consumption could alter the nervous system and thus an increase in blood pressure.
