Coffee and Health
Scientific research tells us that drinking coffee reduces the risk of Type II diabetes, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, colon cancer, glaucoma, depression, suicide, skin cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and gall stones. Is coffee good for you? Looks like it is. For one to experience the health benefits of drinking coffee one need to drink coffee every day and usually one needs to drink two, three, or more cups a day. The keys to the health benefits of coffee are the antioxidants.
Antioxidantsare molecules that inhibit cell damage and cell death in human cells which normally come from oxidative breakdown of other molecules in the cell. Oxidation is a factor in sickness and aging. Antioxidants help prevent damage caused by excessive oxidation and to a degree inhibit the process of aging. When an oxidative reaction brought on by disease gets going it produces free radicals that start chain reactions which in turn cause cell and tissue damage. The human body has or uses antioxidants to control this situation. Coffee antioxidants fall into the class of molecules that help reduce oxidation. A specific antioxidant is methylpyridium. It is formed from the chemical trigonelline when coffee beans are roasted. Methylpyridium increases the activity of phase II enzymes with help protect against colon cancer.
