About This Class

Coffee lovers, this topic is for you! We’ll explore the benefits of coffee, based on science. Is coffee good for you?

This course is for everybody who wants to have a good relationship with ... coffee.

Especially coffee lovers who want to know what to expect from this popular drink - what are the health benefits, how many cups of coffee a day they should drink to experience the most health benefits and what is the tipping point where the risks outweigh the benefits and caffeine start to affect your heart and overall health.

Coffee is the most popular beverage worldwide, with an estimated 3 billion cups consumed every day. If you're like most adults, caffeine is a part of your daily routine and a social habit.

Coffee consumption has been linked to a reduced risk of many conditions, with the greatest effects being at around 4–5 cups per day. It appears that coffee is generally safe as long as you're not a heavy drinker.

What are the benefits of coffee, as backed up by science?

Coffee is a popular beverage around the globe that has impressive health benefits, the most important one is that it can even boost longevity. Some people cannot even imagine a day without coffee.

A new article from Harvard School of Public Health named “Caffeinated or not, coffee linked with longer life” shows that the compounds in coffee – the powerful antioxidants – show potential health benefits, the most notable being an increased life span. Studies have shown that up to 5 cups of coffee/day  (or a total of 400 ml) is associated with a reduced risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and mortality. An increased quantity does not seem to offer additional health benefits.

The study analyzing data from about half a million Britons found that coffee consumption was linked to a 14% decrease in mortality rates, during the 10-year study period. An interesting finding is that it doesn’t matter if coffee is caffeinated or not, it’s the overall composition that matters – good quality coffee, freshly grounded and well-prepared, to keep its most nutrients.

In two other very large studies, drinking coffee was associated with a 20% reduced risk of death in men and a 26% decreased risk of death in women, over a period of 18-24 years.

So, it seems that up to 5 cups of coffee daily seems acceptable unless you have a particular condition (such as suffering from heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcers) or if your doctor advises otherwise.

This is the power of antioxidants!
