Cup of Coffee

1. Reduces the risk of stroke – Drinking coffee on a regular basis might reduce the risk of stroke in women by about 25 percent. On the other hand, a study conducted among male coffee drinkers – who also smoked – gave similar results, even though this finding will be researched more in the future.

2. Eases muscle pain – Coffee has the ability to prevent post-workout soreness and it works regardless of whether you already are a regular coffee drinker or not.

3. Prevents constipation – Having a cup of coffee can help you ‘go’ for a couple of reasons. Staying hydrated is one of the ways to prevent constipation and drinking something warm also gets things moving. In addition to that, coffee is a very strong stimulant and has the ability to encourage muscle contractions in your digestive tract.

4. Reduces risk of disease – Coffee contains plenty of antioxidants which can help you to decrease the risk of diabetes, certain cancers, heart disease, Parkinson’s and gallstones. Additionally, it can also prevent cavities and help relieve asthma.
