Dear Subscriber,

It’s a great Tuesday!

Are you feeling awake?

If not, you might want to reach for
some coffee. But not just for the jolt.
It can do a WHOLE lot more, as you’ll
soon find out.

Australia’s Most Widely Consumed
 Beverage Does What!?

There’s no doubt about it…

Australians love coffee.

In fact, over 50% of Australians
drink three to four cups a day –
totaling over 330 million cups of
coffee consumed every… single… day!

We all know why the bleary-eyed and
tired drink coffee. It keeps them awake
and clears the mental fog they might
experience after waking up.

But now a new wave of research is giving
us even more reasons to consider drinking
coffee (even if it’s decaf). Take a look:

Whip diabetes into shape: That’s right, it
turns out that drinking at least 3 cups of
coffee a day can help reduce the risk of
type-2 diabetes. For example, one study
found that every additional cup of coffee
per day you drink lowers the risk of diabetes by
5 – 10%. [1] And a recent 2011 study in the
journal Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular
Disease found that drinking coffee regularly can
reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes by up to a
whopping 67%! [2]

Fight the war against cancer: For men,
coffee brings great news. In a study from
the Journal of the National Cancer Institute,
researchers found that men who drank over
6 cups of coffee a day lowered their risk of
prostate cancer by 18% – and their risk of lethal prostate
cancer by a big 40%. [3] There’s good news for women too…
Breast Cancer Research reported in May 2011 that
postmenopausal women who drink at least 5 cups of
coffee a day lower their risk of breast cancer by 57%! [4]

Keep your heart happy: These days you hear a lot of talk
about how inflammation is bad for the heart and how you
need to boost your HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Well, guess
what? A study in the journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and
Vascular Biology found that coffee addresses each of these concerns.
It reduces arterial inflammation, boosts HDL cholesterol and can even
decrease the presence of coronary calcification. [5]

Boost your brainpower: You already know that coffee can
help you concentrate better and keep you focused and alert.
But did you know that drinking 5 cups or more a day can reduce
your risk of Parkinson’s disease by up to 60%? [6] Better yet, in
animal model studies, drinking the equivalent of 5 cups of coffee
daily began to REVERSE the damage to the brain created by
Alzheimer’s disease in as little as 5 weeks. [7]

These are just a few of the health benefits both caffeinated and
decaffeinated coffee offer. There’s even more research that suggests
it can also help protect your DNA, kidneys, and liver.

Bet you didn’t know all that about your morning cup of joe!
But now you know…

Oh and before you go out and drink tons of coffee, remember
that calories still matter – so if you can, drink your coffee black,
or with just a splash of creamer. No point in using the health
benefits as an excuse to needlessly drink tons of sugar that will
only contribute to your waistline. =)
