Experts now accept that coffee is beneficial to our health when consumed in moderation. It appears that four espressos a day is appropriate. It’s just as well for Italians, who live off of it!
Coffee appears to protect our livers from cirrhosis while also enhancing circulation. It may also aid in the prevention of many cancers, including those of the prostate, pancreas, and bladder, to name a few.
It also protects our teeth from decay and is an excellent source of antioxidants, which protect us from cancer-causing free radicals in our bodies. Antioxidants can also be found in fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as other foods, but coffee has 600 times the number of antioxidants as berries.
Antioxidants can help to slow down the aging process and maintain the elasticity of our skin. They will aid in the reduction of wrinkles and crow’s feet that develop around the eyes as we grow older.
Science has discovered that drinking 3 to 5 cups of coffee a day will prevent you from developing dementia and Parkinson’s disease, as well as helping you live longer.
Coffee will also help to fight depression, lowering the risk of suicide. Of course, drinking black coffee without sugar is the perfect choice. Sugar isn’t healthy for us at all. We’d be much happier if we could just wean ourselves off it.
People who live in the Mediterranean region prefer to drink a lot of coffee, so coffee plays a role in their diet. They don’t use milk in their coffee very often; consider Greek coffee, for example. Dairy products have been shown to be harmful to our health in recent studies. Milk depletes calcium in our bones, and both cheese and milk have been linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer.
Advertisers have done an excellent job convincing us that milk is safe. That’s not the case! Consumption of dairy products can also cause acne in both boys and girls.
Everyone, of course, has a different reaction to coffee. Caffeine consumption can cause panic attacks, anxiety, insomnia, restless sleep, and headaches in some people.
Coffee increases mental alertness, which is why many people drink a cup of it as soon as they wake up in the morning. We normally feel stronger and more awake just by smelling freshly brewed coffee.
So, let’s keep drinking coffee, safe in the knowledge that it’s healthy as long as we don’t add sugar or milk.
