New findings on studies conducted by Harvard University conducted on more than 200,000 test participants up to 28 years and the results were indeed spectacular.
The study showed that non smokers who consumed 3 to 5 cups of coffee in a day were less likely to die from any health-related cause than those who do not drink coffee.
Research head Dr. Frank Hu said that the likely reason is a powerful antioxidant called chlorogenic acid that is highly abundant in coffee, which may also help explain the 20% reduction in deaths linked to heart disease and some 25% reduction from diabetes-related deaths.
Dr. Hu pointed out that what is similar to both causes of death is that it is characterized by inflammation and the amount of chlorogenic acid in the body from coffee may help reduce the incidence of it.
Another startling discovery from the study is that among non smokers who drank 3 to 5 cups of coffee were 37 percent less likely to perish from a neurodegenerative disease like Parkinson’s disease and 36 percent less from suicide when compared among non drinkers.
Caffeine may also play a role in this as it stimulates the production of dopamine, for which Parkinson’s is characterized by low amounts of this substance in the brain, as well as dopamine also being responsible for boosting production of neurotransmitters in the brain that could help provide anti-depressant effects that can help thwart off suicide attempts.
Even before news of this development reached the public, coffee has long been regarded as a ‘wonder beverage” of sorts, where it can provide benefits more than just giving you your daily boost of energy.
No less than 54% of Americans over the age of 18 consume coffee everyday, who drink an average of three 9-ounce cups.
Other interesting finds are that 65% of Americans drink it during breakfast, while 50% drink it in between meals and only 5% drink it with meals other than breakfast.
The average price of an espresso-based coffee blend is $2.45, while an average cup of brewed coffee is pegged at $1.38.
The United States spends and estimated $40 billion on coffee alone each year.
