Caffeine-based liqueur is an excellent tonic for healthy persons, but for the sick people, it can exacerbate health problems. Spasmophiliacs attacks, heart disease and emotional instability may occur from drinking coffee, experts warn.
Coffee is a beverage rich in antioxidants, therefore it haves anti-aging properties and prevents diseases including some cancer types. The benefits of coffee are that antioxidants neutralize free radicals that can change the DNA of healthy cells, leading to accelerated aging or genetic mutations.
According to a study by researchers at the University of Milan, Italy, people who drink four cups of coffee has a 39% lower risk of developing oropharyngeal cancer compared with moderate coffee consumers, because the risk of this type of cancer decreases by 4% for every cup of coffee consumed.
Prevents type II diabetes
All the antioxidants in the coffee reduce the risk of type two diabetes, a study by researchers study at the University of Sydney, Australia, recently published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine. The study concludes that included 500,000 volunteers and that people who drank three cups of coffee each day had a risk of less than one-fifth to type II diabetes. Scientists believe that the caffeine in coffee is responsible for these medical benefits, but also other compounds, such as magnesium and a number of antioxidants present in coffee.
To soften brown sugar
Coffee stimulates the central nervous system (brain activity). Therefore, on short term, can increase energy and reduce drowsiness. A study conducted at the University of Barcelona, Spain, show that the best way to prepare the brain for intellectual effort is to consume coffee sweetened with brown sugar.
Experts have noted that tested volunteers had intellectual performance at is best when they consumed coffee with brown sugar, compared to times when they used it without this ingredient. The explanation is that these ingredients have the effects to reinforce each other, stimulating the capacity of attention and memory.
Even if coffee drinkers have less risk of making some diseases, coffee can raise cardiac problems, and can shift the arterial tension to an increased heart rate. Moreover, it has a diuretic effect, and, consumed in excess, can induce loss of fluids and spasmophiliacs crisis. With less water in the body, you can lose calcium and magnesium, hence triggering spasmophiliacs crisis.
