Did you know that consuming 3-5 cups of coffee or 5-7 cups of green tea daily lowers risk of premature death by up to 15%? And did you know that decaf is just as beneficial as regular coffee and green tea when it comes to the benefits?
Coffee and green tea are loaded with antioxidants. Anti-oxidants are compounds with extra electrons which they donate to free radicals in the body thereby neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are missing an electron and create DNA damage, tissue damage, inflammation and oxidative stress. By giving an electron to free radicals, anti-oxidants help prevent inflammation and tissue damage and thereby prevent many of the chronic diseases associated with aging.
Coffee has beneficial compounds and is the greatest source of antioxidants in the American diet. Some of the beneficial components of coffee include chlorogenic acid, lignans, quinides, trigonelline, and magnesium. The beneficial effect of regular coffee consumption has been well established in the medical literature. Coffee results in:
reduced glucose absorption in the intestine
lower glucose output by the liver
reduced oxidative stress
lower systemic inflammation
Green tea is also rich in antioxidants. Polyphenols in green tea, especially epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), result in:
reduced risk of obesity
improved blood pressure control
less plaque build up in the arteries.
lower risk of heart attack and stroke
