There are still many people who are under the assumption that coffee is bad for you. We’ve been told for years that coffee drinking is a terrible habit. The simple truth is that too much of anything is not good for you. Everything in moderation is usually the best policy.
1. Coffee fights against heart disease.
Coffee is actually full of powerful antioxidants called flavonoids, which help to prevent LDL cholesterol (the kind that’s bad for your heart) from oxidizing and causing heart disease.
2. Coffee may lower the risk of stroke.
This is especially important for women, who have a higher risk of having a stroke. According to studies, women who drink a couple cups of coffee a day reduce their risk by about 20 percent.
3. Coffee protects the brain against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
Coffee has also been shown to have a positive effect on the brain, and can improve short-term memory.
