Wellness Wednesday: Coffee + Metabolism

infographic source

 

If there’s an article or infographic regarding coffee, you better believe I am interested. I have been drinking coffee for such a long time that I am one of those people who can’t (or won’t) live without it. Maybe that’s part of my South American heritage but I am always in the mood for a cup.

I’ve been reading up on the benefits of coffee and here’s a few I wanted to share:

Protects against cirrhosis of the liver.

Lowers the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

Lowers risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Reduces suicide risk and depression.

Coffee drinkers have less risk of heart disease.

Coffee drinkers have stronger DNA.

Coffee reduces colorectal cancer risk.

I found the above info here, where you can learn more. I used to brew a pot and drink it throughout the day, now I limit myself to one or two cups!
