I L-I-V-E on coffee. Going to the Keurig is one of the first things I do when I get to the office every morning – after checking and responding to emails of course!
So excited is an understatement when I read that another study has found that coffee might be saving my health and youth.
According to David Furman, PhD, the lead author in Stanford University School of Medicine’s study “Caffeine may counter age-related inflammation”:
“More than 90 percent of all noncommunicable diseases of aging are associated with chronic inflammation. It’s also well-known that caffeine intake is associated with longevity. Many studies have shown this association. We’ve found a possible reason for why this may be so.
In short (and in words that most people would understand), researchers found that older participants who drank more caffeinated beverages also had a dampened inflammatory mechanism, which causes those aches and pains… and aging.
Drink up – coffee might be the next best thing to the fountain of youth!
