Benefits of Coffee for Women

Every woman wants to be healthy but no one really wants to work at it but they will drink coffee. Thankfully, you don’t have to do a lot to get a ton of health benefits. Coffee is one of the most commonly consumed things in our country and around the world.

 As long as you don’t have one of the four side effects of coffee it decreases your risk of Alzheimer, Parkinson’s disease, liver and ovarian cancer. The most common four side effects of coffee are headaches, gastric upset, abnormal heart rhythms and anxiety. If you don’t experience one of these four side effects the more coffee, you have the more it decreases your chance of the diseases mentioned above.

 Coffee is often maligned in the public but there are two very important ingredients in coffee that make it beneficial to drink, It’s the caffeine and the polyphenols. People often call polyphenols antioxidants but they don’t really work in the body as antioxidants.

 You get the highest amount of polyphenols from drinking coffee. Bananas would be a close second but coffee is the highest that Americans can get. Considering all the wonderful health benefits you can get from the polyphenols in blueberries you don’t have the luxury of having them every day like you can with a cup of coffee.

 Consuming fresh fruits and vegetables are known to have a ton of antioxidants which are good for the body but they still don’t provide as many antioxidants that you can get from drinking coffee. Because coffee is so acidic the antioxidants in coffee are more easily absorbed into the body when you drink coffee.

 To get the most health benefits from coffee it is best that you drink your coffee as close to black as possible. Adding sugar and cream can reverse the intended health effects of drinking coffee.

 Having the right amount of caffeine levels in your body has been known to help boost memory and cognitive levels. Coffee can assist you in becoming more vigilant which increases your state of arousal making you feel less fatigued.

  •  Coffee consumption increases adrenaline, which can help increase one’s physical performance by up to 12%.
  •  Coffee contains magnesium and potassium which helps the body use insulin, regulating blood sugar levels and reducing your craving for sugary snacks and treats.
  •  Caffeine helps burn fat. It helps fat cells break down and use it as fuel for training.
  •  Caffeine heightens your mood. It can help fight off feelings of depression and bouts of suicide because it stimulates the central nervous system.

 Finally, studies have shown that consuming 1 to 3 cups of caffeinated coffee each day can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes in women by several percentage points. Having 6 cups or more per day slashed women's risk by 30% over those who avoided coffee.

 If relying on your daily dose of espresso is something that you’re into make sure you invest in the best espresso machine your money will allow because it will make a huge difference in the taste and quality of coffee, you consume.
