Could a coffee a day be keeping the doctor away?
Many immediately associate coffee to caffeine and sugar, which tend to have negative connotations, however there’s much more to it. Coffee is made from java beans which are a great source of antioxidants and are linked to mood boosting qualities. That’s not all researchers said…
“Coffee activates the NRF2 protein within our cells and triggers antioxidant survival enzymes from within our survival genes, which is why it is now considered such a powerful antioxidant by many in the health and wellness community.”
According to the American Chemical Society…
“Americans get more of their antioxidants from coffee than any other dietary source, even more than your green tea.”
The specific antioxidants found in coffee beans are called quinine. They have been linked to fight obesity and support weight loss.
A study at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia found that coffee also reduces cavities, improves mood, stops headaches, and boosts athletic performances. Although there has been an immense amount of findings on the benefits of coffee researchers say it is important to drink in moderation.
