COOL AS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PILLOW
Alright, the super cool part hasn't yet been "proven" by "science", but we all know it's true.
Science has on the otherhand been hard-at-work showing the health benefits of your daily coffee habit.
We already know that coffee can reduce anxiety because of dopamine.
Apparently, the caffeine in coffee helps the brain release dopamine into the pre-frontal cortex which is responsible for mood regulation. That dopamine is what gives you those happy feelings.
THINGS THAT MAKE YOU SAY, UMM
Science has also shown us that coffee can reduce our risk of dementia when we drink from 1 to 2 cups of coffee per day.
And coffee has been shown to reduce our risk of melanoma cancer.
YOUR LIVER WILL THANK YOU
Now science is at it again with a new, very wonderful analysis in which they conclude;
Coffee drinkers significantly decrease their risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and regular drinking also decreases risk of liver fibrosis.
Investigators in this study say that NAFLD is a "worldwide public health concern".
WHAT IS NAFLD?
According to the Mayo Clinic;
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is an umbrella term for a range of liver conditions affecting people who drink little to no alcohol. As the name implies, the main characteristic of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is too much fat stored in liver cells.
Apparently, 80-100 million people are affected by this disease in the US alone.
Considering there are 324 million US citizens, we are talking about nearly 1/3 of our population.
Not great odds.
But with adjustments in diet, exercise and a pot of your fav coffee each day, you can help reduce your chances. 🙂
THE BENEFITS OF COFFEE ARE PLENTY
Good thing is that coffee is filled with all kinds of other benefits.
