Coffee for years has been considered an evil drink responsible for every illness from heart disease to cancer; at least 19,000 studies over the past several years have proven quite the opposite. Research coming out of Harvard, Norway and Switzerland found no connection between the consumption of coffee and heart disease or any other disease for that matter. Great news for those of us who love our daily cup of coffee drinking up to six cups a day can reduce your risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, inflammation and Parkinson’s just to name a few of coffee’s benefits.
Coffee beans contain over 1,000 antioxidants and the roasting process can add hundreds more. The American Journal Of Clinical Nutrition reports that a typical serving of coffee contains more antioxidants than typical servings of grape juice, blueberries, raspberries and oranges. How much coffee a day you can drink to reap the benefits is still not clear but I think it is safe to say a couple of cups a day may be much more beneficial than a multi-vitamin.
I think it is becoming very obvious that it is man’s supermarket that creates disease not nature’s supermarket.
