Yes! There have been great studies over the years looking at the health aspects of coffee. In the appropriate amounts, coffee lowers the risk of heart disease, liver cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, stroke, atherosclerosis, and dementia to name a few benefits. Wow, right?! The caffeine in coffee tends to boost metabolism — which is a good thing. Another interesting tidbit is that folks who drink coffee regularly tended to have a lower risk of premature death — in other words, they tend to live longer than those who don’t drink coffee!
