There is a lot of talk and debate about the benefits of coffee. Fans of the drink will no doubt say that its main benefits are vigor in the morning and a delicious aroma. But Inc spoke about the drink’s superpower to reduce the risk of dangerous diseases.

Most research says that caffeine, the main active ingredient in coffee, helps with short-term memory, problem solving, decision making and concentration. In addition, it increases energy levels and relieves fatigue.

What exactly happens in the brain? Caffeine stops the production of adenosine, a brain chemical that causes sleepiness and relaxation. It increases levels of dopamine and norepinephrine, two other chemicals that help us feel more alert and energetic. But there are other benefits of coffee that most people are probably not even aware of.

Coffee may reduce the risk of stroke

One of the studies aimed to examine the possible association between coffee consumption and the risk of stroke among women. The researchers looked at data from more than 83 of them. They tracked their coffee consumption habits and observed their incidence of stroke over a period of time.

Researchers found that moderate coffee consumption was not associated with an increased risk of stroke among women. Moreover, those who drank moderate amounts of coffee daily reduced their risk of stroke by 20% compared to women who drank no coffee at all. The key here is moderation: drinking too much coffee does not bring any benefit and could be harmful to your health.

Coffee reduces the risk of cancer and diabetes

The University of Catania (Italy) conducted a comprehensive super study, which combined the results of 127 randomized trials and observational studies of the effects of coffee on human health.

The results suggest that drinking coffee may reduce the risk of common cancers (such as breast, colorectal, endometrial and prostate) by 2-20%, depending on the type. Coffee also reduces the risk of heart disease by 5%, and type 2 diabetes and Parkinson's disease by about 30%. Additionally, people who drink coffee have lower mortality rates.

Coffee may reduce risk of Alzheimer's disease

Research showed that drinking coffee has a positive effect on fat deposition and intestinal health, which contributes to weight loss. People who increased their coffee consumption experienced a decrease in body fat.

If exercise for weight loss is a problem, then there is still hope. Another study found that people who drink one to two cups of coffee per day are 17% more likely to meet their exercise goals compared to those who drink less than one cup.

Researchers suggest that people who accumulate large amounts of fat around their organs may be at higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease as they age. So coffee is good not only in the fight against excess weight, but also in counteracting diseases for which there is no cure yet.
