Health Benefits of a Good Brew

Drinking coffee may be healthier than you think!

Medical reports are starting to show that coffee is indeed a healthy addition to your daily routine, both for your daily well being as well as your overall life expectancy.

Most of us wouldn't classify a caffeinated drink every day with a healthy diet. However consider these facts:

The Journal of Alzheimers Disease says that drinking caffeinated coffee every day lowers the risk of having dimension later in life.

Harvard School of Public Health recently determined that women who drink coffee are less prone to depression (and let’s face it men…that’s in your best interest too).

University of Illinois’s sports medicine journal reports that drinking coffee is a great start to a workout as it opens airways, decreases pain, and increases endurance.

While there are many pros and cons to drinking coffee, it's not likely that we're going to kick the habit any time soon. Most of us are too reliant on our morning cup o' Joe. The good news? It looks like it may not be as detrimental to our health as we've been led to believe.
