Coffee is the biggest and most consumed product in the world. Coffee is good in many ways, and here are a few reasons why.

The potential health benefits connected with drinking coffee include protecting against type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, liver disease, liver cancer, and boost a healthy heart. Coffee also appears to improve cognitive function and lower the risk of depression (Nordqvist).

There is also some evidence that people who digest caffeine slowly have an increased risk of heart attacks from drinking coffee. However, if you already drink coffee and you enjoy it, then the benefits appear to far outweigh the negatives.

Coffee can surprisingly help you lose weight too. Coffee can help boost metabolism. It helps your metabolism by starting the process called lipolysis which is the process which the body releases body fat into the blood stream. Burning calories and losing belly fat (Benn).

Over all, as you can see here, coffee is good for you and almost beneficial. Coffee or caffeine is good when it is black and not with sugar, cream, and flavors.
