30 Nov Coffee Surprisingly good for us – again
A November study in Circulation involving 200,000 people over 20 to 30 years shows once again that coffee is good for us.
In a nutshell, people with moderately increased coffee intakes – caffeinated, decaffeinated or overall – have significantly lower mortality than non-drinkers. That means coffee makes us live longer – more or less. All causes of death are reduced and specifically cardiovascular and neurological causes.
The benefit is much more obvious in non-smokers with the significantly reduced mortality. The biggest reductions happen with more than 1 cup and less than 5 cups per day.
Author, Dr Ming Ding, notes that chlorogenic acid and lignans in coffee are antioxidants, reduce insulin resistance and protect us from systemic inflammation.
Next, I have to find a way to convince you to explore butter and cream in the bulletproof espresso.
