Health Benefits of Coffee

You might remember, a few months back I treated myself to a new Tassimo T55 coffee maker. Over the last year, I’ve probably increased the amount of coffee I drink to 1-3 cups a day. Well I thought I’d let you know, if you have a Tassimo, you can save £10 and get free delivery when you spend £25 or more on www.tassimo.co.uk by entering the voucher code: TASSIMO10.

As well as my Tassimo coffee, I still have a chilled mocha drink which I make each day: Cocunut milk, Azuro Ground Coffee and Chocolate protein powder. It is well tasty!

Anyway, now that I have my coffee maker and drink coffee more regularly, I thought I’d share this with you: New studies show that coffee has benefits like protecting against Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes and certain forms of cancer. It has a high content of antioxidants, and when you combine it with other nutrient dense ingredients, you can turn that simple, ordinary drink, into a delicious superfood.

Keep in mind that heavy caffeine use (4 to 7 cups of coffee a day) can cause issues such as restlessness, anxiety, irritability & sleeplessness, in susceptible individuals. I tend to have one in the morning and one mid morning, then I don’t really drink it after 2pm, or I tend to find it hard to get to sleep at night. I find it coffee and caffeine a great help with exercise / endurance (see more here) and enjoy a cup with friends, especially from the Tassimo as it makes great coffees. My favourite Tassimo one is the Costa Latte one with a bit of gingerbread syrup in it. Yum!

That’ll do for me to keep drinking it, but not too much and not after about 2 in the afternoon or I’ll be up all night wanting to sign and write blogs!
