Coffee Reduces Risk of Alzheimer's, Cancer, Diabetes

Coffee has always gotten a bum rap because the caffeine in it is a stimulant, which doesn't exactly go hand-in-hand with living a healthy lifestyle.

But according to a study done by the New England Journal of Medicine, coffee is rich in antioxidants and may actually decrease the likelihood of your dying early or developing Type 2 diabetes.

But what I’m REALLY excited about is that another study says coffee drinkers are less likely to develop dementia and Alzheimer’s disease later in life. This great news because as I’ve gotten older, I feel like I’m forgetting more and more.

Now, where was I… Oh, yes… coffee.

A few other findings:
• Helps you sleep better at night (if consumed earlier in the day)
• Lowers the risk of developing some forms of skin, oral and prostate cancers.
• Speeds recovery after colon surgery.

This is all great news because my good friends at Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen just sent me some samples of Pronto!, their new line of single serve, cold brewed liquid coffee concentrate made with 100% Arabica beans.

Instant coffee has never been my thing... I need a big pot of hot Joe to get me going in the morning. But one little “brewstick” in 10 ounces of hot water changed my mind. This really does taste like freshly brewed coffee, with the added bonus of convenience and portability.  

Pronto! Is single origin, Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified and comes in seven flavors like French Roast, Hawaiian Hazelnut and Crème Brulée. It’s sold in a container of six sticks and can be found at Walmart or on Amazon.

Now… how about another cup of Java?
