I have a new coffee travel mug.. keeps coffee hot a long time. Delish. Made me research the following. Keep drinking.

You can get more antioxidants from coffee than from anything else.
Not fruits or vegetables or anything else comes close.

Just smelling coffee could make you less stressed.
Coffee aroma changes brain proteins connected to stress.

Coffee could lessen the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
Some studies reveal coffee drinkers are less likely to develop Parkinson's disease and some tests show coffee helps with movement symptoms of the disease.

Coffee is great for your liver (especially if you drink alcohol).
One cup per day and you're less likely to develop liver cirrhosis, so caffeine has protective benefits. Coffee can help prevent people from developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

Coffee can make you feel happier.
10 or more cups per day and you are 10 times less likely to be depressed. That relates less to caffeine high but to the antioxidants.

Coffee consumption has been linked to lower levels of suicide.
Drinking 2-4 cups can reduce risk of suicide by 50%, the reason being, coffee acts as an antidepressant aiding production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline.

Coffee can reduce your chances of getting skin cancer (if you're a woman).
Women who drink three or more cups of coffee a day are much less likely to develop skin cancer than those who don't.

Coffee can make you a better athlete.
Coffee before a workout jolts athletic performance. In endurance sports caffeine increases fatty acids in the bloodstream, allowing muscles to absorb and burn those fats for fuel, saving the body's small reserves of carbohydrates for later.

Coffee could reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
People who drink 4+ cups per day reduce chances of developing Type 2 diabetes by 50%. With every additional cup, the risk gets lowered by 7%.

Drinking coffee could help keep your brain healthier for longer.
Moderate coffee consumption can appreciably reduce risk of Alzheimer's or delay its onset. People older than 65 who had higher blood levels of caffeine developed Alzheimer's disease two to four years later than others with lower caffeine.

Coffee may make you more intelligent.
That much-needed jolt not only keeps you awake, it makes you sharper. Coffee allows your brain to work in a much more efficient and smarter way. Take caffeine and pretty much anything you measure will improve: reaction time, vigilance, attention, logical reasoning -- most of the complex functions you associate with intelligence."



  1. Yes! Now that sounds like wisdom that comes from experience. This is very encouraging news from excellent research! Thanks Ron. I feel healthier already.

    1. I thot you might appreciate this Doug. Certainly 4 cups per day is more advisable than the 12 I used to drink at the office.

  3. Very encouraging. Remember to keep in mind that the amount of sugar you add to each cup......well, need more be said?

    1. Thanks … that is wise counsel. Fortunately I need no sugar additive.
