Reasons to savour that bean

ccby  tico_24 

Most of the things we enjoy eating and drinking often turn out to be not that good for us. In the past, coffee has often had negative associations with things like caffeine dependence, for example. However, for anyone who likes a few cups of coffee during the day, there’s good news. Coffee may actually be good for your health!

Recent research has shown that drinking a cup of coffee will provide you with more antioxidants than a cup of green tea – and for those of us who can’t stand drinking bitter green tea that will make welcome reading. According to researchers at the Harvard Public School of Health, the antioxidants in coffee can actually help to improve your frame of mind as they release happy hormones like serotonin into your bloodstream. So much so that the researchers estimated men and women drinking more than two cups of coffee a day were 50% less likely to think about suicide than those that didn’t.

And there’s also been research that suggests that drinking coffee can help to reduce your chances of developing liver cirrhosis, something that is usually caused by drinking too much alcohol. That’s not to say, of course, that you can drink to excess and guarantee that you’ll neutralise the effects of alcohol on your liver. Everything in moderation, as the old saying goes.

So, if you’re drinking more coffee for the benefit of your health, it’s a great idea to widen the choice of blends that you drink at home. Caffe Cagliari now sells alternatives to Nespresso capsules which can be used in a Nespresso machine.

And next time anyone suggests that you drink too much coffee you can tell them just a couple of the reasons why drinking coffee might in fact be doing you good.
