Whether you drink it to wake up in the morning or rub it on your face as part of your skincare routine, coffee’s health benefits are real: this is a powerful bean with a robust, visible impact on your health. The skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics know this, which is why they’ve made Coffea Arabica, organic green coffee extract, the key ingredient in their entire line of skincare products. Coffee health benefits? They’re all over the place if you know where to look!
But skin protection is just one benefit of coffee health benefits from head to toe. Here’s a closer look at what the research show about coffee’s effects on your health inside and out when you drink it as part of your regular diet (and remember: organic is always best whether you drink it or slather it on your skin!).
Coffee Health Benefits: A Look at the Science
#1 It prevents diabetes.
Several studies have shown that regular coffee consumption has a protective effect against the risks of type 2 diabetes. Lab tests have shown that coffee increases the production of blood components that help to keep the disease from occurring.
#2 It keeps cancer at bay.
Several studies have shown that coffee can reduce the risk of a variety of types of cancer. One of the most dramatic impacts, however, appears to be on liver cancer. Studies have shown that drinking three cups a day can reduce liver cancer disease risk by a whopping 50 percent.
#3 It fights off Parkinson’s disease.
Several studies have shown that higher coffee consumption is definitely linked to a lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease as you age. In addition, coffee may even help ease the difficulty with movements that people with Parkinson’s disease experience.
#4 It’s good for your heart.
As long as you keep it in moderation (2 to 3 cups a day, not 10!), coffee seems to offer protection against heart failure, according to a number of studies.
#5 It protects youthful skin.
The antioxidants and caffeine in coffee also seem to protect the skin from sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles when incorporated into your favorite skincare products. It’s no wonder coffee for skincare is so hot right now!
