Coffee calling

Author: admin

While a lot has been written about the goodness of tea, drinking coffee too has its perks. As it turns out, coffee could make you live longer and healthier, according to a recent study presented by the European Society of Cardiology Congress held in Barcelona, Spain. The study, conducted on 20,000 people aged an average of 37 years, followed its participants for 10 years. Its findings suggest that those who drank four cups of coffee a day were 64 per cent more likely to live longer. Interestingly, the pattern was more pronounced in people who were 45 years or older. And what’s the coffee bean’s secret? Studies show that coffee contains antioxidant compounds with neuro-protective and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce the risk of illnesses. The findings were published in journal Annals of Internal Medicine.
