Benefits of drinking coffee

When people think of coffee, they usually think of its ability to provide an energy boost. When I think of coffee I also think of the social benefits, coffee means sitting down, relaxing in conversation with a friend or even just quiet contemplation with your own thoughts. But here’s some evidence based science behind the benefits of drinking coffee.

According to some research, coffee can also offer some other important health benefits, such as a lower risk of liver cancer, type 2 diabetes, and heart failure.
Worldwide, experts estimate that people consume around 2.25 billion cups of coffee per day.

Researchers have looked at the benefits of drinking coffee for conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and liver disease. There is evidence to support some of these claims.

Coffee contains a number of useful nutrients, including riboflavin (vitamin B-2), niacin (vitamin B-3), magnesium, potassium, and various phenolic compounds, or antioxidants. Some experts suggest that these and other ingredients in coffee can benefit the human body in various ways.

So a coffee (or 2) a day will help to keep you not only energised, but healthy and satisfied.
