Coffee is a big-time beauty item — it can be found in a wide variety of skincare and beauty products, but the benefits of coffee go beyond the superficial, coffee can contribute to your health in many ways. Caffeine is an anti-inflammatory that can calm redness and ease skin discoloration, as well as eliminate dark circles and bags around your eyes. But more than that, coffee offers these remarkable health benefits:
Coffee and Cancer — Studies have shown that even moderate consumption (>3 cups per day) can decrease your odds of developing Basal Cell Carcinoma by as much as 17% — and individuals who consumed more than 3 cups per day had the lowest risk.
Coffee and Alzheimer’s — The University of South Florida and the University of Miami found that moderate consumption of caffeine (>3 cups per day) is linked to delayed onset of Alzheimer’s and may reduce your risk of developing it all together.
Coffee and Ageing — If it wasn’t enough that coffee can significantly decrease your risk of cancer, dementia, and Alzheimer’s, coffee increases your odds of staying sharp and strong. A 14-year study conducted by the National Cancer Institute indicates that men who drink at least 6 cups per day increased their lifespan by 12% and women who drink 4-5 cups of coffee per day increase their lifespan by 15%.
