How healthy is coffee for you?

For all the coffee lovers out there, there is nothing better than the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Starting and ending their days on coffee is daily routine for them. However, not a lot of emphasis is laid on how healthy coffee actually is.

According to the Intech Open analysis, coffee contains 2-3% caffeine, 3-5% tannis, 10-15% fixed oils and 13% protein which all in combination makes it a healthy energy drink. However, some of its elements tend to decrease or increase when the coffee seeds are roasted or brewed.

Experts suggest it can really be a great way start to your mornings with a mug of coffee but one has to always look after the number of their daily coffee consumption and be mindful about it. An adult is suggested to only take 2-3 cups of coffee a day or 4,000 milligrams of coffee. If coffee is overconsumed, it can lower your work efficiency because one may suffer from insomnia, nervousness, headache, frequent urination etc.

When you prefer coffee to stay awake during your morning lectures, do you know an apple can also work the same for you?  Apples are rich in vitamins and contain a high amount of phytonutrients, antioxidants and fibre which keeps the body in charge. A medium apple is about 90 calories and it does not contain any caffeine but instead, it provides 13 grams of natural sugar. These sugars provoke a similar response to caffeine because vitamins from the apple are released slowly throughout the body, making you feel more awake.

Coffee is also a great source of magnesium and chromium, which help to control the blood sugar level by enabling an adequate usage of insulin in the human body. It also works as an antioxidant, which helps to eliminate the damaging oxidising element in the body.

Coffee helps to eliminate the risk of chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, liver disease, boost the body’s energy level, support brain health and reduce the risk of depression. Though more human research is required to claim all of these benefits and coffee as an alternative to medicinal support.
