Coffee is the Nectar of the Gods

Ah, coffee, is there any better beverage? Speaking as a lover of coffee, but not a coffee snob, I always look forward to that first morning cup. As I savor its aroma – while the medium-bodied roast charms my taste buds – with each sip I am grateful to whoever created this libation.

I would drink coffee regardless of whether it was good or bad for my health. Fortunately, in an article on CNN’s website titled, “Drinking more coffee leads to a longer life, two studies say,” reveals that coffee may actually extend a person’s life. If you follow coffee news, then you’re most likely aware that there have been numerous studies on it and its effects. One of these latest studies, according to CNN, is the largest to date on coffee and its effect on a person’s mortality.

If you’re like me, then one cup is never enough and the studies found that people who drank between two to four cups of coffee each day benefited from an 18 percent lower risk of death compared to non-coffee drinkers. Furthermore, people who drank three or more cups of coffee daily had a lower risk of causes of death such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, etc.

As the article states, coffee is a “complex mixture of compounds” and these compounds have both neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory benefits. And while it’s unknown how coffee is able to impart these benefits, I say just sit back and enjoy another cup.

So, raise your coffee mugs and toast this super beverage! It’s not often that something that tastes so amazingly good is also good for you.
