7th Aug 2018

So, you’ve heard about all the various ways coffee can improve your health, but did you know your daily cup could actually add years to your life? A recent study out of Stanford University School of Medicine found that properties in caffeine may reduce the inflammatory process linked to cardiovascular disease and aging. With a majority of noncommunicable diseases related to chronic inflammation, this is great news for coffee drinkers. Researchers from Stanford discovered that caffeine directly countered the inflammatory process, and people with low levels of inflammatory protein were also enriched with caffeine in comparison to those with higher inflammation.

Amazingly, other studies show that drinking coffee was shown to lower risk of death by 26% in men and 20% in women when looking at a period of 18 to 24 years. Additionally coffee seems to have additional benefits for those who are diabetic, and was shown to increase their chances of longevity by 30% over a 20 year period of study. Other studies also concluded that for every cup of coffee you drink, you lower your risk of type 2 diabetes by 7%. Aside from diabetes and cardiovascular disease, coffee also possesses prevention powers against multiple other debilitating conditions like, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dementia, depression, cancer, stroke, gout, cirrhosis and liver disease.
