Coffee, Caffeine & Health.
Independent research by scientists worldwide continues to link coffee to significant (and surprising) healthful properties.
Coffee has a naturally complex botanical profile, with at least 1,000 natural compounds in the bean (including caffeine) and another 300 created in the roasting process. Scientists have linked a number of them, including some strong antioxidants as well as a host of physiological benefits.
Research has shown that moderate coffee consumption (or 3-5 cups daily) may be associated with many positive effects, including:
Liver disease prevention
Improved cognitive function in older adults
Increased athletic endurance
Reduced risk of type 2 diabetes
Due to the increasing scientific evidence, coffee has earned a new – and improved – reputation. The latest U.S. Dietary Guidelines recently made an unprecedented recommendation for coffee as part of a healthy lifestyle. However recent studies show Acrylamide forming when roasted at temperatures above 248% Fahrenheit.
