6 reasons coffee is good for you - raise a mug for your health

If you needed yet another reason to love coffee (who are we kidding, but humor us anyway), you might be surprised to hear that coffee is actually good for you. And we don’t just mean tastes good. There are quite a number of studies on the third most consumed beverage on this planet and how it affects the human body. The results are actually impressive. You may want to have a cup of Malu in hand while we share with you just 6 of the incredible ways coffee can positively impact your health. 

1. You will live forever 

Okay, maybe not forever, but a recent study on over 170,000 people found that people who drank coffee were up to 30 percent less likely to die during the study period than non-coffee drinkers. Studies have even shown a lower risk of death by cancer. While we wouldn’t exactly forego a healthy, balanced lifestyle, this study is just one of many reasons to savor your daily brew a little bit longer.  

2. Coffee makes you rich

In antioxidants, that is. Believe it or not, coffee is higher in antioxidants than cocoa and green tea, which are already hailed as antioxidant superheroes. Antioxidants help protect our cells and are excellent at combating inflammation, the root cause of countless ailments in the body. 

3. You can say “not today” to Type 2 diabetes

A review of 30 studies found that every cup of coffee consumed was linked to a 6% lower risk of Type 2 diabetes. Research has also found that it may lower your insulin sensitivity and increase your metabolic rate, which is great for your health. 

4. Coffee is a yes-brainer

Studies have shown that coffee helps support brain health. Not only does it have an impact on both short-term and long-term memory, coffee may help protect against neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. 

5. Drinking coffee could lower risk of depression

A review of seven studies found that every cup of coffee consumed was linked to an 8% lower risk of depression. The data has also found coffee drinkers tend to experience less severe symptoms of depression than non-coffee drinkers. 

6. Coffee knows the way to your heart

Contrary to the outdated notion that coffee is not good for the heart, one study with over 20,000 people found a link between coffee drinking and a significantly lower risk of heart failure. Other studies have found the daily consumption of three to five cups of coffee was tied to a 15% lower risk of developing heart disease. Thankfully, Malu’s Starter Pack comes with 9 pouches. 

Whenever and wherever you brew your Malu pour over, it can be a relief to know coffee can be good for body – and soul. The next time anyone has something to say about which number of cup you’re on for the day, let them know that science is on your side 💁‍♀️
