“No one can understand the truth until he drinks of coffee’s frothy goodness” Sheik Abd-al- Kadir
A little vacation time, some holiday feasting, perhaps an overdose of family topped off by a giant snow storm and we are ready to get back to it. So, we might be carrying around an extra pound or two from holiday excess it’s nothing that a bit of good, clean living won’t remedy. More exercise, less carbs, cut down on the double bacon burgers etc… All good ideas but, just in case you’re thinking about throwing the baby out with the bathwater and kissing your daily latte goodbye we hope you will consider the following:
Drinking a moderate amount of the antioxidant rich brew may help to prevent heart disease, keep your blood pressure steady and your blood sugar stable. There are studies that have concluded that the health benefits of coffee included the prevention of both alcoholic and non- alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver, and it can reduce your risk of gall stones. A study on post-menopausal women found that the dietary antioxidants in coffee could also inhibit inflammation and the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Come now, would you seriously consider giving up your one to four cups of the rich, sweet elixer that not only wakes you up in the morning and gives you a much needed kick during that 4pm droop but that can also cut your risk of diabetes, prostate cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, kidney stones, and even depression? Yeah, we didn’t think so.
Welcome to 2011!
