It couldn’t be better news for millions of die-hard coffee lovers. New scientific evidence suggests that the caffeinated black brew could actually make you live longer.
A fascinating new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine suggests that a variety of diseases may have less chance of killing you if you drink coffee every day. This includes major conditions, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, kidney disease and stroke.
Certainly, the public has grown wary of such studies that come out ever so often. Sometimes coffee is bad for you, while other reports suggest significant health benefits. So it’s always important to take the latest research with a certain grain of salt.
However, the new information is impressive because of the size and duration of the study. Some 185,000 subjects were examined, people who drank at least two to three cups a day. Length of time was 16 years. The result? These coffee lovers had an 18% smaller chance of dying compared to those who drank no coffee at all.
A study such as this can only enhance the appeal of certain speciality brands of coffee that offer more than just a caffeine jolt. For example, a product called Organo Gold is a coffee brand that adds a certain kind of mushroom to its blend to make a beverage that may offer even more health benefits – that added to the benefits of regular coffee.
Organo Gold mixes something called Ganoderma lucidum into its mix. This is a powdered form of the Gandoderma mushroom which has been recognized for centuries as a healthy herb. Records of the mushroom use date back to China’s Ming Dynasty. While Organo Gold is careful not to make specific claims of health benefits, thousands of people swear by its positive effect – and the fact it just tastes good!
