"Benefits in drinking Coffee"

  • It protects against oral cancer

    The study shows that more than 38,000 participants aged 40 to 64 years with no prior history of cancer 157 cases of cancer of the mouth, pharynx and esophagus occurs during 13 years of follow up. Compared of the people who did not drink coffee, those who drank one or more cups per day have half the risk of developing this cancer.
  • Coffee as an antioxidants

    Coffee contains hundreds of compounds that may help with research into some of the most prevalent diseases of our time and one of the most exciting discoveries is the significant presence of antioxidants within the coffee beans.

    Antioxidants are proven to help mitigate the chances of heart diseases and cancer.
  • Coffee helps delay the sign of aging

    The study sought to determine the contribution of various food groups to total antioxidant intake and coffee topped the list at 64 percent.  Fruits came in second at only 11 percent, while tea came third at 8 percent.

    While our bodies naturally produce antioxidants to help combat free radicals, they are not enough.  We are, after all, constantly exposed to oxidants such as: atmospheric radiation and environmental pollutants such as cigarette smoke and pollution, stress, toxins and other factors.  Because of all these, our bodies always need a good boost of antioxidants.

    Coffee does this by supplying our bodies with a healthy amount of antioxidants to combat oxidative stress, a collective term that refers to the breakdown of chain reactions in the body caused by free radicals.
