You might be going on a daily run to Starbucks or any other local coffee shop to get a glass of your refreshing coffee before work. Students carry coffee mugs to the library to keep them awake before those maddening finals. Maybe you might have asked that beautiful girl or the handsome man out for a cup of coffee to get to know each other a bit. Whatever it is, coffee has become a huge part of your everyday lives, and if you have ever stopped to ask yourself if this cup of coffee is deteriorating your health, then you would be delighted to know that it is not as harmful to you as you might think. In fact, a cup of coffee can hold more health benefits than you could ever imagine.

For one, it is a simple boost to your energy levels which is not as harmful to you as energy drinks. Research has suggested that it may hold a link with reducing the risk of Type two Diabetes and supporting brain health. It promotes weight management like a healthy balanced diet. It protects against liver conditions and can increase longevity. It is good for blood flow and beneficial to the health of your heart, and it can even have some connection to reducing the risks of depression and improving mental health. All these are just a few of the reasons why a regular cup of coffee is doing great good to your body.
What goes without saying is that at the same time, an excess of anything can be bad for you. Two to five cups of coffee can help keep your health in check, but any more consumption of coffee every day will instead be bad for you. So, while you drink coffee regularly, you need to be sure that you do not get addicted to the extent that you need a huge amount of intake every day to be able to function.
