There’s no current cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but as per the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine, drinking 3-5 cups of coffee per day during one’s middle age is associated with a decreased risk of Alzheimer’s as well as dementia later in life… by about 65%! Along with this finding, caffeine has been shown to impact brain function by improving memory, mood, reaction time, and cognitive function, according to Authority Nutrition. Caffeine’s stimulating properties also help with alertness, attention, and concentration, as per Coffee and Health. Think of each rich sip of your java as a mental massage.

According to Authority Nutrition, coffee can help break down fat thanks to the stimulants in caffeine that head to the nervous system. Additionally, caffeine increases levels of epinephrine in the blood, which signals fat cells to mobilize fatty acids to break down and leave the body. This increase can be up to 29%. Studies have been reported that caffeine can take the metabolic rate up by 3-11% - one of the few natural ways to do so when ingested via a cup of coffee. Of course, this goes for black coffee. Once you pour in too much heavy cream and sugar, you’ll negate the benefits. What else tastes so delicious and actually helps you lose the extra bulge?

Drinking coffee can help lower the chance of getting Parkinson’s.
