Coffee is one of the most demanded drinks by people. People drink coffee to get up in the morning and to stay awake during the day. It seems like everyone is drinking coffee. For me, however, coffee isn’t such a big deal. I never drink it and feel that I would rather go without it because I like my body to naturally wake up on its own without the aid of some outside substance such as coffee. Although I assumed coffee as only helping a person wake up, it seems like coffee has other effects.
According to an article on science daily, coffee can help many different aspects of a person’s health. From the article, it seems like coffee can help lower chronic inflammation and raise our good cholesterol. It also contains nutrients such as calcium and other compounds that may promote health. Coffee’s role in helping to reduce type 2 diabetes was also mentioned in this article and, for me, was the most interesting and surprising.
Although I am still hesitant to drink coffee because I don’t want to become reliant on it, it seems like coffee would be good to drink for other reasons other than trying to become more awake in the morning and throughout the day. Because this article does not talk much about coffee’s role in helping to prevent type 2 diabetes, I would like to look at other sources to see more about this.
