It’s National Coffee Day! Here Are 3 Great Health Benefits Of The Bean!

It’s “National Coffee Day 2021!”

Yes, it’s my favorite day of celebration – because who doesn’t love coffee? It’s not only the best way to wake up to a new day, but here are some great facts about the health benefits of the bean as well!

Here’s An Eye-Opening Medical Study On Coffee! Drink Up!

I have posted many stories about my love of coffee, and medical reports confirm what we have all known:


Seriously, this study shows just how great coffee is, from protecting your liver to helping to prevent Alzheimer’s!

I just read a terrific story on MEDIUM that focused on the research published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine last year – and the bottom line was terrific, as it supports drinking coffee – even LOTS of coffee:

The report “suggests a lower risk of death was associated with drinking more coffee, including among coffee drinkers who have eight or more cups per day.”

A 2017 review of 201 coffee studies and 17 clinical trials, published in The BMJ, found coffee was:

“associated with a lower risk of several cancers, including prostate, endometrial, skin and liver cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes, gallstones, and gout.”

Beyond that, the researchers discovered positive effects on brain health: Coffee consumption was linked to a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease.

This was no minor study: it tracked coffee consumption and mortality among 521,330 people across Europe. The researchers discovered the following:

“Higher coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of death from any cause, and specifically for circulatory diseases, and digestive diseases,” said lead author Marc Gunter, a nutrition expert at the International Agency for Research on Cancer. “Drinking more coffee was [also] associated with a more favorable liver function profile and immune response,” Gunter says.“Importantly, these results were similar across all of the 10 European countries, with variable coffee drinking habits and customs.”

OK, I love that picture, but coffee came out smelling like roses on this study!

Veronica Setiawan, an associate professor of preventive medicine at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine says:

“Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention,” she says. “Although this study does not show causation or point to what chemicals in coffee may have this ‘elixir effect,’ it is clear that coffee can be incorporated into a healthy diet and lifestyle.”

So not only is coffee good for you, but you can drink as much as you want! That leads to my three favorite coffee experiences:

“Colorless” Coffee!

  1. Sip sip hooray two days late and sipping my coffee!


  2. I drink 2-3 cups most days. I gave up soda a few years ago, and I think I’ve compensated by drinking more coffee. Caffeine is a powerful drug. I usually have one cup in the early afternoon, but that’s it for the day as I have trouble sleeping otherwise.

  4. Happy National Coffee Day🙌💕 Wow 8 cups or more coffee is too much for me😂

  6. I WISH I could drink coffee. The stuff smells amazing, but the taste? Yeuch. I’ve tried differing levels of milk, no milk, sugar, no sugar. Can’t abide the taste, but I always love the smell and the fancy coffee machines.

    The potential benefits are pretty appealing, aren’t they? Everything in moderation, as they safe, as too much caffeine isn’t great either. I love the photo of the gigantic coffee mug on the desk. Looks like the mug I use for my tea! xx


  7. Hooray for coffee! Time for my first cup!! ☕


  8. I used to drink a lot of very strong Espresso coffe at one time. I used a Bialetti coffee maker, on the hob.
    Now I drink three cups a day, mostly instant, and rarely have coffee in the evenings. But I still enjoy it, and love the smell of fresh coffee too.
    Best wishes, Pete.
