The truth is millions of people love to drink coffee. They love it for the flavour and the way it offers them comfort especially in the morning or any time of the day for that matter. The great thing about drinking coffee is it also comes with a LOT of healthy benefits. Here are just some examples:


Benefit #1: Decreases Mortality Risk

There have been studies which showed that men who drink at least 2 cups of coffee each day lowers the mortality risk by 10 percent while those who drink at least 4 cups can lower risk by 12 percent. Percentage is slightly higher in women. Results were essentially the same after adjustments have been made to include education, body fat, age, race and lifestyle as factors.

Benefit #2: Decreases Cancer Risk

Coffee is known to be rich in antioxidants, particularly chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid. These substances work to protect the body from cancer and similar diseases. A research involving 67,000 women revealed a 25 percent lower cancer risk for those who drank at least 4 cups of coffee per day as compare to non-regular drinkers.

Benefit #3: Decreases Heart Attack and Stroke Risk

Drinking coffee is actually good for the heart because mainly of the antioxidant content. Compared to drinking soda which elevates risk for stroke, coffee lowers risk by at least 10 percent. It is even known to prevent heart rhythm problems.

Benefit #4: Regulates Blood Pressure

Coffee drinkers are less likely to suffer from hypertension or high blood pressure since caffeine has been found to increase nitric oxide production along the endothelium, which is the collective term for the cells lining the insides of blood vessels. Increase in nitric oxide actually improves muscle tone of the vessels. In addition, coffee also works to sustain healthy arterial pressure which results to long term lowering of blood pressure.

Benefit #5: Improves Cholesterol Levels

By drinking at least 4 cups of coffee a day, you can raise your HDL levels or the good cholesterol and by doing so lower any form of inflammation related to heart disease. It also improves ratio between LDL and HDL levels.

Benefits #6: Improves Memory

In recent studies, coffee has been found to contain a mystery ingredient which protects an individual from suffering from Alzheimer Disease, a memory-related illness. The said ingredient interacts with caffeine and work to boost the amount of the growth factor, Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor (GCSF). In mice, this growth factor has been found to be effective in fighting off Alzheimer’s by removing beta-amyloid plaques.

Benefit #7: Improves Metabolism

This certainly is good news for those who are trying to shed that extra weight. Coffee supposedly increase metabolic rate which allows your body to burn more calories. It also directs the body to use fat instead of glucose as energy source. Overweight subjects who were asked to drink 500 ml of coffee each day for a 4-week duration lost 2.5 kgs in the process.

So the next time you decided on choosing Custom Coffee Mugs as promotional gift for your next event or tradeshow, you should know that you are actually promoting good health as well.
