Sapps and Co - Leading Sunshine Coast Coffee Roasters

It will come as no surprise to you that coffee is one of the most consumed beverages throughout the world. The reasons for this are endless, it is the taste, the pick me up, the social element but did you realise it is also the health benefits? Everything in moderation of course, but did you know that studies actually prove that coffee drinkers have lower risk of several serious diseases?

Coffee is very high in antioxidants and features beneficial nutrients in every sip making it a great part of your everyday diet. We are all familiar with that post-coffee buzz that comes from the hit of caffeine in your coffee, but did you realise that this caffeine hit can make you think clearer, making smarter decisions and also helps you burn fat by increasing your metabolism. Coffee can also increase your physical performance, so you can trade your pre-workout for a strong black!

The nutrients contained in coffee are ideal for improving everyday function, while also proving to prevent Type 2 Diabetes. It is also thought to prevent dementia and protect you from Alzheimer's, while lowering your risk of Parkinson's disease. Coffee can also help your liver function, lowering the risk of some cancers, reducing the rate of stroke and helping deter heart disease. It has also been linked to helping fight against depression.

While all these health benefits have been cited in observational studies, we still recommend you drink in moderation and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. But if you're like us and consider how many health benefits are linked to coffee, you are probably saying... 'shut up and take my money'!
