Morning Coffee – D46

2 Aug

Ruh Roh! Maybe I was wrong about coffee…

Libby Kane says: “No one is saying that you should drain the coffeepot twice over before 10 a.m., but research shows that a reasonable amount of coffee does you more good than harm. Not only is coffee no longer associated with heart disease and stroke, but it also has antioxidants. It’s been shown to fight Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes and liver cancer.

New research published in The Archives of Internal Medicine also found that women who drank two to three cups of coffee daily had a 15 percent lower risk of depression than those who didn’t, as the coffee helped regulate their moods.

If coffee isn’t your thing, other caffeine sources are just as good. Various studies have shown that caffeine increases memory, detoxes the liver, increases stamina during exercise and fights Alzheimer’s. As with all of these habits, make sure not to get carried away-more than four cups per day can have adverse health effects like insomnia, irritability and restlessness.”
