Your Coffee Habit Has Been Justified: The Surprising Benefits of Drinking Coffee

Most of us love nothing more than starting off the day with a fresh cup of coffee... or six cups. It gives us the energy we need to tackle the day ahead. Lord knows laying on the couch watching Criminal Minds can be a nail biter and I need all of the energy I can get. Aside from giving us a productive burst, coffee does a lot more for our bodies too.



Prevents the risk of aging and improves skin texture – If you have been trying various face masks in an attempt to achieve radiant and glowing skin, the answer could be in a cup of coffee. This is because of the main ingredient, caffeine contains antioxidants and anti-aging properties, which give your body the ability to fight against free radicals. You will find that a lot of these antioxidants and anti-aging properties are actually found in many beauty products.

Lowers the risk of diabetes – Health experts have researched this subject numerous times, and they have come to the conclusion that coffee can reduce the risk of diabetes. This is because caffeine increases the level of estrogen and testosterone in the body, which lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes. Can I get a "HOLLA!"

It gives you a taste of different cultures – Coffee is integral to a lot of countries and cultures around the world. When visiting another country, you will often get offered their traditional coffee and honestly, you should take them up on that. You would be amazed to see the differences in taste between border lines. While we indulge in our double ristretto venti half-soy nonfat decaf organic chocolate brownie iced vanilla double-shot gingerbread extra hot with foam whipped cream upside down double blended coffees, people in Greece prefer a shot of strong, dark Greek coffee.  If you are going to buy various types of coffee, make sure you research the important questions, i.e. how long does coffee last? How should I store it? And most importantly, how is it meant to be enjoyed? Coffee with milk is actually quite unusual in a lot of places!

Coffee makes you happier – If you ever needed a reason to drink more coffee, this is it. Coffee can make you happier and help you to fight depression. There have been a number of tests and studies that have proven this to be the case. This includes one that was published via Harvard in 2011. In this study, it was found that females who drank four or more cups of coffee each day had a 20 percent lower risk of being depressed. You can now justify hitting the Starbucks drive-thru more than once in a day. Thank you, Harvard.

There are essential nutrients in coffee – Lastly, a lot of people do not realize that coffee actually contains essential nutrients. This includes the likes of magnesium, niacin, potassium, manganese, pantothenic acid, and riboflavin. The latter of which is vitamin B5 and vitamin B2. Trust me, this is what REALLY gets you through the day. Coffee is a lot more than just black water; it contains nutrients that are good for you!

As you can see, there are a number of benefits associated with drinking coffee. Now, you have an even bigger excuse to indulge in a delicious cup of coffee or two, or three... before you go to work in the morning or deal with your daily tasks around the home. Hallelujah!
