If you can’t get the day started without your morning cup of coffee, you’re not alone. Over 62% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis! However, that might not be such a bad thing.

The most significant research-proven benefits of drinking coffee include:

  1. Cancer: Coffee may help reduce the risk for certain types of cancer including prostate, melanoma, liver, breast, gastric, and colorectal. (2)
  2. Diabetes and metabolic syndrome: Coffee may help improve blood sugar control and promote weight loss by drinking just 1 to 1 ½ cups a day. (2)
  3. Inflammation: Coffee contains high amounts of antioxidants (even higher amounts than tea) which have been associated with reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. (2)
  4. Mental health: Some studies have shown caffeine to have a positive effect on depression. (1)

Although coffee appears to have numerous health benefits, that doesn’t mean you should guzzle endless cups of coffee. The 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans supports three to five 8-oz cups per day (providing up to 400 mg per day of caffeine). We recommend you abstain from coffee if it increases anxiety, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) or sleep issues.

Come enjoy a warm cup of Saint’s Cafe Blend coffee after your workout!
