Coffee actually turns out to have health benefits, however, earlier it was considered to do harm to one’s health.
Here is the list of diseases that are protected by coffee.
Blood pressure. It is proved from a long-term study that coffee might not increase the risk of high blood pressure over time. In fact moderate drinking for coffee would stabilize the blood pressure condition. Two cups of coffee a day is considered as moderate amount.
Cancer. Coffee may also have anti-cancer qualities. Researchers found out coffee consumers were 50% less expected to get liver cancer than compared to those who did not drink. A few studies have further found the effect of lower rates of colon, breast, and rectal cancers.
Cholesterol. Coffee contains two substances — kahweol and cafestol — they tend to increase cholesterol levels. Paper filters detain these substances, however, those who tend to drink non-filtered coffee drinks, such as lattes, still run risk. Researchers have further found a connection between cholesterol increases and decaffeinated coffee, probably because of the kind of coffee bean used to make some sort of decaffeinated coffees.
Diabetes. Heavy coffee drinkers might be half as expected to have diabetes as light drinkers or could be nondrinkers. Coffee might comprises of chemicals, which reduces the blood sugar. A coffee habit might also augment your resting metabolism rate that in turn could help keep diabetes at bay.
Parkinson disease. Coffee appears to defend men, but not actually women, against Parkinson’s disease. One probable explanation for this could be the sex difference might be that estrogen and caffeine require the same enzymes to be metabolized, and estrogen captures those enzymes.
