Benefits of Coffee

Coff­ee consumption is linked to lower rates of depression.

“Drinking coffee offers a boost of energy and a lift in well being,” said Alberto Ascherio of Harvard School of Public Health.

The study shows that caffeine protects against certain neurotoxins, and brain receptors that respond to caffeine are concentrated in the basal ganglia, an area that is important for both depression and Parkinson’s disease.

Tip: Have a cup of coffee.  If you can’t drink coffee because of the caffeine, try another good-for-you drink like green tea.
