Coffee is a highly addictive beverage for many people. This can be seen by the sheer number of cafes that sprout up all over the world and the increasing demand for high-quality beans to satisfy their customers.
Almost every adult consumes coffee or has at least tried this aromatic and delightful cup of java. But is it a good or bad thing? Some people might say otherwise but here at almighty coffee, we believe that taken into consideration, coffee does more wonders to your health than harm.
- Coffee is a good source of antioxidants.
Many studies have shown and proven that coffee contains a high amount of antioxidants and these antioxidants are good for battling cancer cells and lower the risk of infections.
- Coffee is a potion for the liver.
Especially for those who consume alcohol, a study resulted that people who drink at least one cup of coffee per day reduces their chances of liver cirrhosis (a form of liver disease) by up to 20%. This disease is normally caused due to excessive alcohol consumption.
- Coffee for heart health.
Some studies have shown and suggested that coffee may protect against arterial damage caused by inflammation. Coffee drinkers who consume two or more cups of coffee per day can expect up to 20% lower risk of heart diseases compared to people who consume alcohol.
- Coffee for the mind.
The caffeine present in coffee triggers our brain’s neurotransmitters that control our mood by producing hormones such as dopamine and serotonin. By consuming a cup of coffee a day, the level of dopamine and serotonin are slightly higher as compared to those who do not consume coffee.

A report by ScienceDaily showed that by consuming coffee, it can help with patients with Parkinson’s better control their movements and reduced chances of Parkinson’s for those who are not patients with Parkinson’s.
