The Health Benefits of Drinking Coffee

Coffee healthy? Can it be? According to research coffee may actually be more than an energy booster for many of us. In an article found on WebMD, coffee actually contains minerals such as “magnesium and chromium, which help the body use the hormone insulin, which controls blood sugar (glucose). In type 2 diabetes the body loses its ability to use insulin and regulate blood sugar effectively.” This information has led some researchers to believe that coffee may be a protective against type 2 diabetes. Coffee has also been found to counter risk factors associated with heart attacks and strokes, too.

According to Medical News Today, researchers in the U.S. carried out a study that assessed the link between coffee consumption and Parkinson’s disease risk. The study concluded that “higher coffee and caffeine intake is associated with a significantly lower incidence of Parkinson’s disease.” In addition, caffeine in coffee may help control movement in people suffering from Parkinson’s, according to a study conducted at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI MUHC) that was published in the journal Neurology.
