Coffee features and benefits that coffee provides

Many of us cannot start the day without a coffee. Whether black, latte or mocha, the thing is… Drinking coffee in the morning is a ritual! It helps us activate, wake up and get off to a good start. In addition, it gives us many other benefits. Today we tell you some of them.

Coffee benefits:

  • It reduces the risk of developing diabetes: it has been proven through various studies that consuming coffee reduces the risk of suffering from diabetes by between 23% and 50%. Caffeine has this effect on our body, although it is not yet known why, it has been proven that it helps us prevent the development of this disease.
  • • It contains essential nutrients: in a single cup we will find riboflavin (vitamin B2), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), manganese, potasium, magnesium and niacin. All of it just in a cup of coffee! If we add the nutrients of milk, we have a perfect combination.
  • It contains substances with antioxidant properties: It is ranked number 6 on the list of the 50 most antioxidant foods. It is a list generated by The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Some of the antioxidants it contains are polyphenols, these are bioactive compounds that provide us with many benefits for our health. They help us fight free radicals, increase the activity of vitamin C, delay the development of cataracts…
  • Coffee improves digestion thanks to its ability to generate gastric juices and saliva, essential elements for a good digestion. So, if we feel like having a coffee after a meal, our digestive system will thank us.
  • It helps prevent Alzheimer’s: How is that possible? When caffeine enters our body, it becomes a soldier that confronts the cognitive deterioration and oxidation that our cells suffer. Furthermore, if we consume coffee regularly, it can help us have a better connection between the neurons in our hippocampus. One of the structures of our brain, which is mainly responsible for memory. This discovery comes from a study carried out at John Hopkins University in Baltimore (United States).
  • It helps keep the body active: Another effect that coffee produces on our brain is the activation of various aspects of its functions, this is due to caffeine. At the same time, it blocks adenosine, a neurotransmitter that is responsible for increasing our sleep. This action triggers a series of effects that result in us finding ourselves on alert mode, more awake and with much more energy.

These are some of the properties that coffee gives us, we can continue enjoying it in our morning coffee, or have a go with a recipe. Have you seen how to make Fair Trade tiramisu?. We also suggest our new single-origin coffees, Guatemala with aroma of cocoa and caramel, with notes of red fruits, and Perú with aroma of cocoa and fresh grass and a subtle floral touch, two different and irresistible coffees.
