Top 8 Health Benefits of Drinking Coffee

Morning Coffee Happy

The great flavor of your favorite beverage may be enough to persuade you to continue drinking it. However, it can’t hurt to recognize that you also benefit from these eight health-inducing perks. Your daily cups of coffee can help you live longer. They might also stave off several severe illnesses and improve your functioning.


Studies show drinking coffee can prolong lifespan. Over 10 years, researchers looked at the connection between coffee consumption and death risk. Scientists considered variables like the participants’ lifestyles, wellness, and coffee consumption.

The research revealed that people who drank over four cups of coffee daily enjoyed a 64% death risk reduction compared to non-coffee-drinking participants and those who drank only a little. In the follow-up period, coffee drinkers aged 45 or above benefitted from a 30% reduction in death risk.

Brain Function

Coffee contains a psychoactive substance that blocks the neurotransmitter adenosine in the brain. Consequently, other neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine increase along with neural firing. Cognitive functioning improves when you drink coffee, along with vigilance, memory, reaction speed, productivity, and motivation.

Pouring Coffee Cup

Various studies have demonstrated that drinking coffee can prolong lifespan.

Physical functioning

The caffeine in coffee prepares your body for intense exertion, releasing fat cells for activity and increasing adrenaline, and it can boost physical performance by 12%.

Ramp up metabolism

Caffeine helps people burn fat and is often a key ingredient in weight loss products. Studies show it can increase fat loss by 29% and boost metabolism by 11% in trim people and 10% in obese individuals.


Coffee contains vital nutrients, including riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and pantothenic acid. The amounts are small, but your intake increases with each cup of coffee.

Happy Coffee Smile

Studies have shown that people who drink coffee are less likely to suffer from senile dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Brain protection

Coffee drinking may help you avoid age-related cognitive decline. No cure exists for getting old, but you can consider your coffee habit helpful for brain maintenance. Researchers conclude coffee drinkers are 65% less likely to suffer from senile dementia and Alzheimer’s disease than non-coffee drinkers.

Liver health

Four mugs of coffee can potentially reduce cirrhosis of the liver risk by 80%. Cirrhosis causes scar tissue to build, replacing part of the liver, and is associated with hepatitis and fatty liver disease.

Lower risk of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and diabetes

Research shows you are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes as a coffee drinker. Each cup lowers the risk by 7%. Frequent caffeinated coffee consumption can lessen the risk of liver and colorectal cancer. It also reduces the risk of Parkinson’s disease by up to 60%.

Now you know your daily cups of coffee have more to offer than their terrific taste. You could see improved physical and mental wellness and lower chances of developing diseases if you continue your habit.

  1. Coffee is a carrier for the drug caffeine, which something like 90% of the world is dependent on daily. Kids as young as 7 or 8 are given coffee (diluted) to get them hooked on the drug. You have to know that something is wrong when you NEED to have a drug dose one or more times daily to get through your day!

    The invisible addiction: is it time to give up caffeine?
    Caffeine makes us more energetic, efficient and faster. But we have become so dependent that we need it just to get to our baseline

    After years of starting the day with a tall morning coffee, followed by several glasses of green tea at intervals, and the occasional cappuccino after lunch, I quit caffeine, cold turkey. It was not something that I particularly wanted to do, but I had come to the reluctant conclusion that the story I was writing demanded it. Several of the experts I was interviewing had suggested that I really couldn’t understand the role of caffeine in my life – its invisible yet pervasive power – without getting off it and then, presumably, getting back on. Roland Griffiths, one of the world’s leading researchers of mood-altering drugs, and the man most responsible for getting the diagnosis of “caffeine withdrawal” included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), the bible of psychiatric diagnoses, told me he hadn’t begun to understand his own relationship with caffeine until he stopped using it and conducted a series of self-experiments. He urged me to do the same.

    For most of us, to be caffeinated to one degree or another has simply become baseline human consciousness. Something like 90% of humans ingest caffeine regularly, making it the most widely used psychoactive drug in the world, and the only one we routinely give to children (commonly in the form of fizzy drinks). Few of us even think of it as a drug, much less our daily use of it as an addiction. It’s so pervasive that it’s easy to overlook the fact that to be caffeinated is not baseline consciousness but, in fact, an altered state. It just happens to be a state that virtually all of us share, rendering it invisible.

  2. Unfortunately coffee will cause your skin to shrivel up and rot off. You will turn into a freaking skeleton with pieces of rotted flesh hanging off of your bones.

    This is an obvious propaganda article. There is nothing about coffee that is good. The medical science knows that very well as a result of many scientific studies but as long as the coffee industry can pay reporters to write this s***. We would be subjected to brainwashing by the media.

  5. God made everything to be used and helpful to man. Thank You Lord JESUS for coffee even if it isn’t all this article claims, still enjoy my morning cup 🙏👍👍👍💥💫
