Coffee is a huge, multibillion dollar industry that shows no signs of slowing down at all. It’s quite simple – people love their coffee and aren’t willing to give it up. And according to medical experts, they don’t have to. In fact, medical experts are beginning to tout the health benefits of consuming a daily cup of Joe.

Experts do warn that while coffee is good for you in quantities fewer than two cups, its how it’s served that is unhealthy. Many lattes and other coffee type drinks have in excess of 500 calories and are loaded with fat and sugar. So just be sure to keep the calories and fat down while enjoying your daily coffee. Below we take a look at the five health benefits of coffee.

Coffee Helps Concentration

Studies conducted on coffee drinkers’ show that it helps to boost short term memory as well as reaction time. Studies have also proved that coffee increases memory recall and focus. That’s good news for college students everywhere that often need a boost of focus and mental energy to get through those late night study sessions.

Coffee Mitigates Liver Damage

This is also great news for those college students who like to party it up on the weekends. It turns out that coffee helps protect the liver from damage caused by alcohol.

Coffee is Full of Antioxidants

Antioxidants are those substances found in plant based foods that protect your cells from damage as well as boost your immune system. Coffee is one of those plant based foods that is full of antioxidants. Vegetables and fruits have more, but coffee is the number one way that people get their daily antioxidants. It has several kinds that are known for a variety of health benefits such as disease prevention and immunity support.

Coffee Provides and Energy Boost

Coffee is the best energy boosting substance around. Many college students have turned to dangerous energy drinks or even prescription drugs to boost their energy levels. A cup or two of coffee has just enough caffeine to perk you up without making you feel jittery and nervous like many energy drinks and energy shots do.

Coffee Makes you Happy

The ingredients in coffee apparently cause your brain to release dopamine. Dopamine is the mood regulating hormone in your system that can make you feel on top of the world.

Coffee Reduces Risk of Stroke and Heart Attack

It’s true that coffee increases your blood pressure in the short term, but over the long term it has proven to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke by as much as 25% according to a study done by a Swedish research institute.
