Enjoy your morning caffeine – It’s good for your health

Does your morning only really start after you’ve had a cup (or two, or three) of your morning coffee?’ It’s ok if that’s the case – there isn’t an International Coffee Day for nothing.

That freshly brewed pot of coffee doesn’t just smell good. In fact, it may actually be beneficial to your health.

Here are 4 reasons why caffeine is good for you:

  • They have fewer health problems – some studies show coffee drinkers have a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes and a lower risk of developing melanoma.
  • Caffeine drinkers are more physically active – it increases adrenaline, which can enhance your physical performance.
  • They’re happier – according to a Harvard study, drinking coffee may reduce the risk of depression.
  • They have healthier brains – a Johns Hopkins University study shows that caffeine can increase memory, and studies show it can delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

So go ahead and pour yourself another cup of coffee. Your body – and mind – just may thank you.
