Good news: Your morning cup of coffee may be more beneficial than you think. In addition to waking you up–and tasting great–coffee is associated with the following health benefits:
- Experts have indicated that coffee may help prevent Type II Diabetes.
- Coffee is chock full of damage-fighting antioxidants.
- Studies have suggested that drinking coffee might decrease your risk of developing Alzheimer’s. While those are great reasons to refill your mug, try not to reach for the cream and sugar, which add fat and calories and diminish coffee’s nutritional perks. Also, remember that moderation is key; two cups per day will afford you the maximum benefits, while more might just give you the jitters.
