coffeeDid you know coffee is not only good for the soul, but is actually good for your health? The magic drink is packed with nutrients and antioxidants that lower your risk of many diseases and can improve your health. Here are 5 health reasons to drink coffee:

  1. Increase metabolism- The caffeine in coffee has the potential to increase your metabolic rate by up to 10%. By increasing your metabolism, you have a higher chance of burning more calories a day, which can burn more fat overtime.
  2. Antioxidants- Coffee is more than just a flavored beverage loaded with caffeine. Coffee beans contain a high abundance of Chlorogenic Acid. This antioxidant is known to reduce obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes.
  3. Improve cognitive function- Studies suggest that drinking 2 or more cups of coffee a day can improve your awareness and memory, and improve the state of people suffering from Alzheimer’s.
  4. Decrease Parkinson’s symptoms- People who consume caffeine are less likely to develop symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. For those who already have the disease, the caffeine provided in coffee can improve physical movement.
