We’ll be cel­e­brat­ing In­ter­na­tional Cof­fee Day on 1 Oc­to­ber. Many of us can’t start our day without a strong cup first thing in the morn­ing. Re­search con­ducted by the Univer­sity of Scran­ton in Pennsylvania has found that cof­fee pro­vides more an­tiox­i­dants in the av­er­age Amer­i­can cit­i­zen’s diet than any other food or drink.

Benefits of caf­feine:

It’s high in an­tiox­i­dants. It helps with the ab­sorp­tion of nu­tri­ents such as mag­ne­sium, man­ganese and vi­ta­min B. It’s been found to lower the risk of liver can­cer and colon can­cer. Cof­fee is said to play a pre­ven­tive role against type 2 di­a­betes. It has pain-killing prop­er­ties. It im­proves con­cen­tra­tion, al­beit tem­po­rar­ily, and wakes you up when tired and run down.
