Drinking Coffee is Actually Good for You!

  • 01 Oct 2020

Do you know that coffee has a lot to offer when it comes to health benefits?

While some may argue that it can cause insomnia, digestive problems, an increase in heart rate and blood pressure, recent studies suggest that this delicious drink does more good than bad to the body!

Upon research, Astro Ulagam found 5 proven health benefits of drinking coffee.

1) Nourishes the body with essential nutrients and antioxidants

A single cup of coffee is loaded with powerful antioxidants which is even more than cocoa and green tea that are considered to be the antioxidant superstars.

2) Boosts brain function

When you drink coffee, caffeine travels to the brain through the bloodstream which results to a boost in the body’s energy levels. Thus, regular consumption of this caffeinated drink helps improve general cognitive function, memory, reaction times, vigilance and other important brain functions.

3) Helps maintain a healthy weight

Most fat burning supplements contain caffeine to effectively burn fat.  Coffee consumption increases fat burning in the body by 10 percent for obese individuals and up to 29 percent in lean individuals.

4) Decreases the risk of many diseases

Drinking coffee may help you to prevent health conditions such as depression, gout, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes and even certain types of cancers.

5) Promotes liver health

The more coffee you consume, the less you have the risk of cirrhosis, a condition caused by many diseases that affect the liver.
