The Health Benefits of Fresh Coffee
Coffee is drunk all around the world. People love it for its great flavor and high caffeine content, which helps them stay awake during long workdays and early mornings. But there’s actually more to it than that.
Fresh coffee, and to a lesser degree, instant coffee, have been scientifically proven to benefit health in a number of surprising ways (when drunk in moderation and obviously without seven spoons of sugar or cream!)
Coffee and Mental Health In one study from the National Institutes of Health, people were 10% less likely to experience depression if they drank four or more cups of fresh coffee a day.
The study also showed that this phenomenon did not extend to other caffeinated drinks such as cola. Amazingly, drinking two cups of coffee a day, whether this is instant or fresh ground coffee, may make people 50% less likely to commit suicide thanks to the mood-enhancing effects of caffeine.
However, the likelihood of suicide doesn’t correlate with the amount of coffee that you do drink, as Finnish researchers have shown that people who drink eight cups a day were more likely to suffer ill-effects on their mental health.
Coffee, Physical Health and Cognition The physical effects of caffeine are well known. Athletes at the Olympics tend to consume a lot of caffeine as it is a legal performance booster.
Even if you’re not running the 100m, you can still enjoy the positive effects that coffee has on brain function. Try organic, ground coffee such as this one from Taylors of Harrogate to ensure that you’re not taking in any unnecessary chemicals. Indeed, the best-researched benefit of drinking coffee is the ability to boost cognition.
If you have had a long day or little sleep, fresh coffee is proven to boost your logical reasoning, attention, vigilance and reaction time. Amazingly, drinking three or four cups of coffee a day can reduce the chances of developing a number of long-term conditions, including type two diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Coffee drinkers could be up to 60% less likely to experience a degenerative disease, as coffee decreases the brain’s intake of proteins that are thought to have a detrimental effect on the brains of older people. Even a cup of instant coffee such as Café Direct Fair-trade Freeze Dried Coffee can help your brain metabolize proteins faster.
