Health Benefits of Coffee Consumption


Coffee lovers will tell you already that there are numerous benefits to practically inhaling the drink each morning.


Some people even go so far as to consume the beverage all day long in some form or another. Some like it hot, some like it cold, and some like it in or with desserts such as ice cream.

To these people, it may not be surprising to find out that coffee might actually have some health benefits, despite the negative reputation it has for the unhealthy side effects of caffeine consumption.

However, there may very well indeed be some real benefits to coffee consumption. These are three purported benefits of coffee consumption. 


Coffee As An Anti-Depressant:



Folgers does claim that the best part of waking up is, well, their coffee in your cup. But, some research suggests that any coffee in your cup may be a key to fighting depression. According to Prevention magazine, those that drink four or more cups of coffee a day are less likely to display symptoms of depression. And, since the same benefit does not extend to other caffeinated beverages, researchers suggest it is due to the antioxidants found in the drink, not the caffeine. Perhaps Joe should be considered a valued friend after all.


Coffee for Weight Loss:



It may seem counterintuitive to drink a caffeinated beverage and expect weight loss, but minus all the extra creams and sugars, coffee can actually be good for weight loss efforts. At least, that is what Dr. Oz has claimed on one of his shows. A few other researchers make this claim as well, but still, others caution that there is no definitive evidence to fully back up the claim. Rather, it is green coffee beans that are thought to assist with weight loss. They supposedly do so because they are unroasted beans, which still contain a chemical compound called chlorogenic acid. This compound is lost when the beans are heated and roasted, and it is this chemical that is said to aid with weight loss.


Coffee to Avoid Liver Failure:



As unlikely as it may seem, some studies suggest that coffee may reduce the risk of certain liver problems. The Mayo Clinic offered study results claiming that those that consume coffee on a regular basis, a cup a day or more, may have a lower risk of developing primary sclerosing cholangitis, or PSC, which is an autoimmune disease that causes liver damage. And alcohol consumers might also like to know that it is believed that those who consume coffee on a daily basis might be less at risk for alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
