Health benefits of coffee

1.Protection Against Cancer

Research conducted at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center that found that drinking four or more cups of coffee per day reduced a man's risk of prostate cancer recurrence by 59 percent. One explanation for this finding is that coffee is loaded with antioxidants. "The richest source of polyphenols in Western diets by far is coffee," says Asprey. And previous research has shown that polyphenols can reduce the risk of the onset of prostate cancer.

It's not just cancer of the prostate, either. A meta-analysis performed by Chinese researchers found that higher coffee consumption could reduce the risk of liver cancer by 50 percent, and another study by Canadian researchers found that high coffee intake was associated with reduced risk of breast cancer.

2.Improve Your Physical Performance:

Caffeine doesn't only increase your energy levels or help you burn fat. It also increases the adrenaline levels in your body. Not surprisingly, some people will tell you to drink a cup of coffee before you go to the gym. 

3.Heart Health Protection

Caffeine is hinted to hold tight caution when it comes to heart health, as it may induce heart palpitations, especially in individuals targeted with other factors or a diagnosed heart disease. However, research has shown coffee can actually lower the risk of stroke, particularly in older women and men. Its antioxidant properties can further protect against blood vessel damage and foster healthy cholesterol levels.

4.Coffee help for kidney problems

If you suffer from kidney stones, it might be worth adding coffee to your diet. A Harvard study revealed that people who drink one or more cups of coffee per day are 26 per cent less likely to develop kidney stones. That’s because caffeine increases urination, which expels the excess calcium and sodium that researchers believe cause kidney stones.

5.Reduces diabetes risk

Drinking coffee with sugar increases your diabetes risk, especially type 2 diabetes. Some studies have found that people who drink black coffee without sugar have a 23 to 50 per cent lower risk of getting this disease. Diabetic people should also avoid sugar-laden coffee as they cannot secrete enough insulin, and drinking coffee with sugar causes the sugar to accumulate in the blood.
