A coffee a day may help keep the doctor away. 

1. Coffee Helps Fight Depression 

Slowly savoring a freshly-brewed cup of coffee sure brings you joy, but did you know that your favorite drink can actually help fight depression? There are several studies that prove that coffee helps alleviate depressive disorder and stimulate the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine is an organic chemical linked to euphoria, which gives you that pleasant pick-me-up feeling after your first sip.

2. Coffee Can Be Your Workout Buddy

Caffeine contains stimulants that may help enhance your performance while exercising. Studies show that coffee helps boost your energy levels and keep your muscles contracted while reducing your perception of pain. Coffee accelerates your metabolism: the higher your metabolic rate, the easier for you to burn fat and lose weight.

3. Coffee Helps Fight Diabetes Type II

More than 30 million Americans are affected by diabetes, and 90% of those people suffer from type 2 diabetes. Although there are many factors to consider, caffeine consumption has been associated with a substantial lower risk of developing this disease. Short-term metabolic studies have shown that coffee can improve glucose tolerance and lowers insulin sensitivity.

4. Your Liver Likes Coffee

Increasing coffee consumption can significantly reduce the risk of cirrhosis. This doesn’t mean that drinking coffee will block the negative effects of alcohol or liver diseases, but studies have shown an inverse correlation between coffee consumption and decreased risk of cirrhosis.

5. Coffee Helps Fight Neurodegenerative Disorders

Different studies suggest that there is a relationship between increased coffee consumption and decreased cognitive decline. Regular coffee drinking throughout your life can slow down cognitive decline associated with age. It also lowers the risk of developing Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
