Benefits of Drinking Coffee

Many of us would drink coffee whether it has health benefits or not. If you love coffee, this will reassure your need for it; if you don’t drink coffee here are some reasons that you might want to start considering doing so.

  1. Coffee Lowers Blood Sugar

The chlorogenic acid found in coffee has been known to increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin, meaning overall lower blood sugar. In the long haul, this can also mean a lower risk for type 2 Diabetes and make weight management for those with type 2 Diabetes easier.

  1. Liver Health

Coffee can reduce fat found in the liver. Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is very common in both younger and older adults, but studies have shown coffee drinkers have demonstrated less liver damage as opposed to people that do not drink coffee.

  1. Lower Risk of Alzheimer’s/Dementia 

Among other rich foods, such as fruits, fish, and wine, coffee has the potential to protect the brain from complications later in life that causes dementia. In addition, the brain experiences short-term benefits, such as improved moods. This means improved mental health for the present and the future.

  1. Better Workout and Metabolism

Coffee has also demonstrated a potential to increase endurance in athletes, which could mean a better-quality workout. Along with its natural ability to increase metabolic function, better workouts can help in weight loss and maintaining a healthier weight for longer periods of time.

These are just some of the benefits to drinking a couple cups of coffee every day.

    The Strange Case of the Taco Bell Wings

    So, in the last week, or two, all I could see on my timeline were memes and jokes about the newest addition to Taco Bell’s lineup of food they offer at their chains: chicken wings. At first, it was humorous to think about it, why would Taco Bell start serving chicken wings? It was even funnier to imagine who would be the brave souls to actually eat those wings to let the rest of us know just how good, or bad, they are.
