Coffee Lover

I love coffee and its aroma brings life to my system. Just this morning, I drank one cup and I really felt good afterward. I read at the net some benefits of coffee and I would like to share it to you:

Coffee drinkers often are concern that their delicious java is too much of a good thing that it must be bad for you. After all it tastes great and really peps you up so. Not so say researchers, it has been shown to coffee is generally safe with moderate consumption and that surprisingly, coffee is actually good for your health. Several studies have linked coffee with reduced risks of Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis.

Coffee beans contain anti-oxidants and other substances that provide these health benefits. Additionally these anti-oxidants can be found in either regular or decaf coffee.

The recommendation for most people would be to enjoy one or two cups of coffee a day, which will allow you to capitalize on its health benefits without incurring health drawbacks. Note: each person is different - so keep this in mind when deciding how much coffee is right for you. Avoid coffee after 3 pm to prevent insomnia. This is especially important if you have problems falling asleep.

If you need to avoid caffeine for health reasons, stay away from coffee and other caffeinated beverages altogether. If you can't live without your coffee, you can purchase decaffeinated coffee that has had the methylene chloride removed during a steam process. Such coffee is available at better health food stores.

If coffee doesn't agree with you, try alternative beverages, such as Inka Naturalis, dandelion blends, and Teeccino that have the flavor you want, without the negative effects.
