The Health Benefits of Coffee


Coffee is an age-old drink that most people consume to gain a much needed energy boost in the morning and throughout the day. It’s even rumored that simply smelling coffee makes people feel better. However, regardless of the caffeine, the bioactive compounds of coffee are what make it so healthy. Drinking coffee in moderation has proved its importance with its seemingly endless links to health benefits.

Moderate coffee consumption (two to three cups per day) has been linked with longer lifespan. In fact, a November 2015 study in Circulate found that coffee consumption was associated with an 8% to 15% reduction in the risk of death (with larger reductions among those with higher coffee consumption).

Other studies have found that coffee drinkers may have reduced risk of:

  • Cardiovascular disease (including heart attack, heart failure, and stroke)
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Uterine and Liver cancer
  • Cirrhosis
  • Gout
  • Depression
  • Alzheimers
