Moder­ate long-term cof­fee con­sump­tion (around three cups a day) is as­so­ci­ated with a 27 per cent re­duced risk of de­vel­op­ing Alzheimer's dis­ease, ac­cord­ing to re­search pre­sented at the Euro­pean Union Ge­ri­atric Medicine So­ci­ety’s 2016 Congress.

A study pub­lished in the Archives of In­ter­nal

Medicine found that women who drank two to three cups a day were 15 per cent less likely to de­velop de­pres­sion, com­pared with those who had one cup or less per day. This may be due to how caffeine binds to mood re­cep­tors.

Pro­motes health

Stud­ies show that peo­ple who drink cof­fee reg­u­larly tend to live longer and have lower rates of di­a­betes, heart dis­ease, colon can­cer and melanoma. Th­ese ben­e­fits are prob­a­bly con­nected to the black stuff’s an­tiox­i­dant and anti-in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties.
