The Benefits of 3 Common Beverages

The 3 beverages listed below are in the news everyday now: coffee, beer and wine. All ancient drinks and all with even more newy realized health benefits.

The 3 Beverages:

Coffee - It is now revealed that people who regularly enjoy a cup of coffee have a lower risk of diabetes, stroke and endometrial cancer. This does not apply to decaffeinated coffee. In fact it is the caffeine in coffee that may block the chemicals that interfere with your heart's electrical system. It is also believed that 4 cups per day can help to cut the risk of abnormal heart rhythms by as much as 18 per cent.

Important coffee note: While coffee has many health benefits it's important to realize that coffee sold on the supermarket shelf in cans and jars are most likely ground robusta beans (not arabica beans), are not at all fresh, are grown in the sun and are of an inferior grade. Please see the link below on how to select the right coffee beans.

Beer - Beer has been found to have a good amount of a mineral known as silicon. Silicon has been shown to help build strong bones. There are many different kinds of beer on the market now. For best results try the pale ales - which are the hops-rich beers - and have been shown to have the most silicon, while the wheat beers have the least.

Wine - Red wine has many benefits including resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant. However, recently, it was revealed that women who have a glass or two of wine have been shown to be 30 per cent less likely to be obese compared to women who do not drink wine at all. Both red and white wine have been shown to have this special benefit.

Additionally, the resveratrol in red wine seems to be revealing more health benefits on a daily basis. These include reducing the risk of heart disease and fighting against cancer and diabetes.
