Viva La Java

A new study shows that drinking coffee can reduce your risk of dying early. Now, the reduction in risk seemed more significant in coffee drinkers over 45 which could suggest that drinking coffee at a later age can have good benefits.

This new study only backs up the results of a recent large observational study that found that coffee drinkers have appeared to live longer. In fact, coffee has shown to reduce the risks of many diseases including type 2 diabetes, liver disease, certain cancers, and even Alzheimer’s disease. Why? Because it is loaded with antioxidants! Many naturally occurring antioxidants are found in the coffee bean, while others are simply created during the roasting process. Some of these compounds have been related to better liver function and reduced chronic inflammation.

Before you go off and grab yourself a Venti premium light roast with two cream and 2 sugar, you should consider if you need to limit your intake of caffeine. For example, pregnant women or those who have any heart conditions should limit their caffeine. Even if you decide to have a cup of decaf, it is not without caffeine. While a regular cup of coffee can have anywhere from 75 to 165 milligrams of caffeine, decaf still can have 2 to 7 milligrams.

If you don’t have these conditions, well then go ahead and have that good ole cup of joe and swap out that cream and add low-fat milk for some extra calcium and maybe cut out some of that sugar to stay healthy and happy!
