How your coffee cuppa benefits your health

The day's brews are tested at Blue Bottle Coffee in Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York May 10, 2013. The new generation of upscale coffee shops and roasters includes dozens of operators around the country. They are in a race to find rare and distinctive beans and hope to elevate one of the world's oldest and most popular drinks in the same way that craft beer brewers, boutique wineries and olive oil makers won fans by focusing on high-quality ingredients and production.

Washington: The much believed fact that coffee does good to people is now being proved as researchers have claimed that drinking coffee can dramatically reduce your risk of heart disease.

According to a report presented at the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation drinking three to five cups of coffee per day can cut an individual’s risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by up to 21 per cent, reported U.S. News and World Report.

But your heart isn’t the only thing coffee can protect as it reduces the risk of Type 2 Diabetes and daily consumption of coffee can lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes by 11 percent.

Further, researchers have claimed that coffee consumption helps in weight loss, improves cognitive function and improves kidney and liver health.

And along with enhancing sexual health, consumption of the aromatic brew also reduces the risk of cancer as a research found out that women, who drink five or more cups of coffee a day, are 57 per cent less likely to develop estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer compared to the ones who drink less than one cup a day.
