If you love coffee but feel a twinge of guilt every time you decide to indulge in a cup, it’s time to say goodbye to those bad feelings.
Because, once again, coffee has been proven to be a friend NOT a foe.
New research published in the journal Circulation confirms that a daily coffee break could help you live longer.
The large analysis crunched the data from two different studies that included 167,000 women and 40,000 men.
Slash your risk of premature death 15%!
The numbers revealed that drinking three to five cups of coffee a day could lower your risk of a premature death by a healthy 15 percent.
And while the researchers don’t know exactly why it works one of the study’s co-authors, Walter Willet, seems to have a hunch.
Willet reports that coffee beans are brimming with “many different nutrients and phytochemicals” that could be responsible for the brew’s life-saving benefits.
Of course these findings echo the many positive studies we’ve already seen on coffee over the years.
Coffee’s health benefits confirmed
Heck taking a daily coffee break could even drop your depression risk by 20 percent according to one study!
In fact, coffee has been linked to a long laundry list of heath benefits including…
- Improving energy levels (Smith A.P.,1993 – I. Hindmarch, 2000)
- Boosting brain function to enhance mood, memory, cognitive function and reaction time (C. H. S. Ruxton, 2008 – Carolyn F. Brice, 2002 – H. R. Lieberman, 1987)
- Protecting against Alzheimer’s and dementia (L. Maia, 2002 – Santos C, 2010)
- Enhancing fat burning (Dulloo AG, 1989 – Koot P 1995 – Kevin J Acheson, 2004)
- Lowering your risk of type II diabetes (Y. Zhang, 2011 – Rachel Huxley, 2009 -S. van Dieren, 2009 – Andrew O Odegaard, 2008 – Rob M. van Dam, 2005 – Rob M van Dam, 2002)
The new research even had some good news for those who are caffeine sensitive.
Unlike some past studies which were unable to firmly credit decaf coffee with the same health benefits as the full test variety, this new study showed similar results regardless of whether or not the study volunteers drank decaf or regular.
So feel free to go ahead in indulge in a couple of delicious steaming hot cups of organic coffee a day.
It’s a practice that could end up helping you live longer and healthier.
