Coffee good is for you!

I just recently heard that coffee is good for us in several ways, not just the social beneficial effects of having a good chat among friends or the well known effects of caffeine.

To my surprise coffee contains many substances beneficial for our health, with a moderate use of coffee for a healthy person being 4-5 cups per day. Filter-brewed coffee is best as the harmful substances stay in the filter which means good news for the Baristas. Espressos and Lattes are here to stay!

Coffee is said to have beneficial effects on your cholesterol-levels and to reduce blood-sugar which means less heart-disease and diabetes. Coffee also according to the latest research slows down the advancement of Alzheimer’s having good effects on the proteins in the brain and preventing the nerve tissue from damage in Parkinson’s disease. Maybe I should switch to coffee instead of my accustomed tea?
