There are so many studies on coffee it can be hard to stay current! Coffee can be one of those things that can be unfairly maligned, but there are actually lots of ways in which coffee can be great for you when you drink it in moderation. Here’s what you should know about those benefits.
Get More Fiber Into Your Diet
We all need a decent amount of fiber in our diet in order to maintain good gut health and coffee can help with that. A cup of brewed coffee can contain around 1.8 grams of fiber, allowing you to boost your overall fiber intake across the course of a day. It’s a benefit not many people know about.
Coffee Can Help You Burn Fat
If you look at any fat-burning supplement, it’ll contain caffeine. That’s because it helps to burn fat and, of course, there’s plenty of caffeine in coffee too. So, if you want to burn fat and boost your metabolic rate, drinking more coffee may be a good way of doing it.
Protect Your Liver
Drinking coffee may help to protect your liver against cirrhosis of the liver. The fact that coffee can do so much to protect your liver is a definite benefit that you should take into account because strong liver health is vital to your overall health.
Improve Your Mood and Avoid Depression
A Harvard study found that people who drink 4 or more cups of coffee a day were less likely to suffer depression. It was found that the reduction in risk was 20%. Coffee is also thought to improve your mood and generally make you happier, so what’s not to like?
A Huge Source of Antioxidants
We hear a lot about antioxidants and how good they can be for our bodies. They’re talked about as a key part of a healthy diet, but not many people know that more people get antioxidants into their diet from coffee than from any other source. It offers a great way to get antioxidants into your body.
It Contains Vital Nutrients
There are lots of healthy and vital nutrients contained within each cup of coffee you drink. There’s magnesium, potassium, vitamin B2, and vitamin B5 among others. These are all required for a healthy lifestyle.
Help Protect Your Eyes
A study from 2013 found that drinking coffee can significantly aid the prevention of retinal degeneration, reducing the risk of sight loss and impaired vision at the same time. So if you want to keep your eyes healthy, drinking coffee may be one way to do that!
