Good news for coffee grains lovers: a study of Southampton on the effect of health drink reveals that the negative consequences are considerably less than research has detected the beneficial effects.

Therefore, ground coffee grains as the elixir of life: prevents becoming ill with diabetes, cirrhosis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and certain cancers (colon, liver, prostate, endometrial, skin and melanoma).

Between 3 and 5 cups a day: this is the quantity that seems to maximize the positive effects, which is approximately 400 milligram; the same goes for decaffeinated, suggesting that it is not the caffeine itself to act on health.

A study published in the British Medical Journal declares that even assuming 7 per day the benefits outweigh the side effects, reducing by 10% the risk of premature death. A search conducted by Ira Driscoli, duration 10 years and involving 6,500 women over 65 years, brings out that coffee consumption reduces the risk of dementia 36% female.

Robin Poole, public health specialist at the University of Southampton, reveals that coffee grains contains a complex mixture of bioactive compounds, “A large portion of the daily requirement of antioxidants came from coffee, which provides more than tea, fruit and vegetables. The most abundant antioxidant present in the drink is chlorogenic acid. The roasting process in part deletes it but other alternative oxidants form.”

Not only positive effects while you drink the coffee grains. Many negative aspects of the drink.

According to Eliseo Guallar, a professor at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Maryland, there is, however, to specify that the coffee is drunk often accompanied with products rich in refined sugars and fats (such as sweets, sugar, cream, milk) and these substances tend to cancel the benefits of the drink.

In addition, there are also negative effects, especially for some people: pregnant women are those that need to be more careful because a high consumption of the drink might affect the weight of the newborn, contribute to premature births and miscarriages.

Coffee lengthen-life then? We can’t get reliable results on the positive effects nor whether it is really advisable to prevent disease.
