Go for that coffee. It keeps the heart in better shape, has a cocktail of antioxidants and brings stress levels down. It isn’t as good as a workout but does tick all the other boxes.
Three to five cups a day can do more than to keep you up and about. There are over 1,000 beneficial chemicals in coffee, which are helpful in reducing not just the risk of cancer, but also stroke say new research.
A recent study published in the journal Stroke found that consuming one cup of coffee per day can decrease stroke risk by up to 20%.Researchers followed 82,369 men and women in Japan over the course of 13 years and found those who drank coffee regularly were less likely to suffer a stroke. Similarly, drinking four cups of green tea per day also decreased stroke risk by 20%.
While they are yet to find what makes coffee work to cut down stroke risk, researchers think it may well have to do with possible reduction in inflammation or improvement in insulin resistance, both of which can help prevent strokes.
Other things that take your favorite cup of black coffee is its ability to lower stress in the system. The whole cup of antioxidants could do much more- it lifts your mood, enhances your metabolism, increases attention span, and productivity.
Fan of cheesecake? Had a one too many? Coffee would never make you feel guilty like that because it reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes if consumed regularly. It also keeps your blood pressure in control.
