Most people consider coffee a wonderful “wake-up” beverage which contains caffeine - a harmful ingredient to the body. People, who are addicted to coffee, go through great pains to reduce their dependency on it. Well, there is good news for the people who find it impossible to get rid of the habit. Coffee is a great antioxidant!
Coffee And Its Antioxidant Properties
The history of coffee would be normally proof enough to its anti-oxidant powers. When it was discovered some thousands of years ago, it s chronicled by historians that the people who discovered it survived for long months only on its beans. Egyptians working on the discovery had used coffee as an invigorating beverage – a habit that is perpetuated to this day.
Coffee, as per modern science, can help the body heal itself. The full impact of coffee as an antioxidant can be felt only when it is consumed pure without any additives whatsoever. Hence, those who drink their coffee rich, black and without sugar are those who benefit the most. From the taste point of view, coffee is excellent in any form you take it; it is consumed with milk (and sugar), with cream (and sugar) and favored with anything you would like. Besides, nowadays coffee laced with cognac is a great craze.
Studies show that coffee and antioxidant is as common as duck and water. You have antioxidant fruits, antioxidant vegetables and you have antioxidant coffee. Just like that. Gone are the days when you would be advised by the doctor, friends and relatives to leave drinking coffee. Today, you will be encouraged to have it – and if you have it plain black without sugar – all the better for you. The required amount of coffee for optimum results is about three-four regular cups of coffee with the least possible additives.
There are many things that coffee can help you with besides providing antioxidants – it is one of the substances that can instantly bring you back to ‘life’ (this is great when you are tired, sleepless, or just got up from the bed – and you need to be alert for something serious), it can prevent sleep (for those times when you need to burn the midnight candle for exams, or that urgent project for the boss), it can provide energy (people who drink coffee regularly, do not feel as hungry as those who don’t) among others.
Though it is not advisable to abuse this beverage, if you make it a habit to consume some 3-4 cups a day – it might be just fine for your health!
