Hey, Joe: The Secret Health Benefits of Coffee


Coffee might be America’s favorite drink. In fact, the United States’ consumption of the brew breaks world records! On average, 54% of Americans over the age of 18 drink an average of 3.1 cups per day! All told, our country spends a little over $40 billion a year, just on coffee. The myriad of flavors and varying degrees of intensity, its intoxicating aroma and that get-up-and-go jolt, all add to our obsession with the humble bean. Even better, besides making our mornings easier, coffee has numerous health benefits.

According to the New York Times, coffee has been found to be protective of your liver. In a recent study, conducted from 1999 to 2010, “researchers found that compared with people who drank no coffee, those who drank three cups a day were about 25% less likely to have abnormal liver enzyme levels. Among the more than 2,000 who drank only decaffeinated coffee, the results were similar.” The incredible benefits of coffee don’t stop there. More research indicates that coffee might reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease, because the caffeine in the bean helps to increase the amount of dopamine in the brain, by blocking certain receptors. This keeps your neurotransmitters firing and decreases your risks for certain disease. It could also be argued that coffee can make you smarter because your neurotransmitters are able to continuously forge new pathways in your brain.

Coffee has been linked to better cognitive function, liver function, and has astounding nutritional value, too. A cup of coffee has vast amounts of vitamins and minerals, like B5, potassium, manganese, and Riboflavin, an essential vitamin that helps you reduce harmful pathogens in your blood. Riboflavin has also been shown to reduce migraines. And, it is equivalent to 1.8 grams of fiber!
