calling all coffee lovers

GOOD news for COFFEE lovers:
(after putting up the chocolate lovers post last week, i couldn’t leave this one out!)

it protects your heart
moderate coffee drinkers (1 to 3 cups/day) have lower rates of stroke than non-coffee drinkers, an effect linked to coffee’s antioxidants (having more antioxidants per serving than blueberries!)

it diverts diabetes
those antioxidants boost your cells’ sensitivity to insulin, helping to regulate blood sugar

it boosts brain power
moderate coffee drinkers (1 to 3 cups/day) can help to reduce their risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, as well as Parkinson’s disease, studies suggest, as the antioxidants may ward off brain cell damage and help the neurotransmitters involved in cognitive function to work better

it helps your headaches
studies show that 200 milligrams of caffeine (about the amount in 16 ounces of brewed coffee) provides relief from headaches, including migraines

SCORE!!
