One of the most versatile and popular drinks, coffee can be enjoyed hot or cold, morning or night. Not only that, but coffee actually has a ton of health benefits.
Coffee in India is grown under a canopy of thick natural shade in ecologically sensitive regions of the Western and Eastern Ghats. This is one of the 25 biodiversity hotspots of the world. Coffee contributes significantly to sustain the unique bio- diversity of the region and is also responsible for the socio-economic development in the remote, hilly areas.
Coffee is rich in:
- Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
- Plant chemicals: polyphenols including chlorogenic acid and quinic acid, and diterpenes including cafestol and kahweol.
Let’s see the benefits of coffee,
A) Helps to burn fat
If you’re trying to lose weight, add coffee to your go-to beverage choices. A research review discusses how coffee increases:
- Metabolic rate: how fast your metabolism is?
- Energy expenditure: the number of calories you need to carry out daily physical functions.
- Lipid oxidation: fat breakdown.
- Non-exercise activity thermogenesis: the calories burned by movements you make when you’re just going about your daily business.
All of these components are beneficial for maintaining or losing weight.
B) Controls diabetes
Diabetes is a serious health condition that becomes a cause of numerous other ailments. While getting the blood sugar level under control is a humungous task, the humble cup of tea or coffee can, in fact, play a pivotal role in controlling it. Coffee is loaded with antioxidants that help to keep the blood sugar level under control, and the antioxidants present in tea may, in fact, help the body to process the sugar in the blood better.
C) Brightens your face
A coffee facial scrub can help brighten skin, prevent clogged pores, and soften lines. The acid in coffee gives you some chemical exfoliation on top of mechanical exfoliation. It also helps bolster skin’s protective barrier.
D) Prevents liver diseases
The liver is one organ that is known to benefit immensely from coffee. Regular coffee consumption helps to keep liver diseases such as liver cancer, liver cirrhosis, and other chronic liver diseases at bay.
E) Lowers cancer risks
Researchers found that non-smokers who drank 2 cups of coffee per day had a decreased risk of colorectal, liver, and female breast cancers.
Drink 2 to 3 cups of coffee, and your risk for head and neck cancer start to drop as well.
F) Parkinson’s disease
The caffeine found in both tea and coffee helps to protect the human body against the Parkinson’s disease. Studies have also revealed that caffeine not only protects the brain but also helps to identify the early signs of this brain disorder.
