Coffee and its Healthy & Beautitious Benefits
by Mistress Curvalicious
…………………………………………………………..

Health Benefits…  Your morning cup of java contains caffeine and antioxidants which have healthful benefits.  According to several surveys, ~ daily drinking of no more than 5 cups of ~ coffee can benefit memory functions, and can help avoid or delay the onset of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, can lower the risk of type II diabetes, can reduce the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, and can help prevent cirrhosis of the liver which can lead to colon cancer.  And other surveys indicate that there are more health benefits too; please see the Reference links below 😉 

Coffee flower  Aiding weight loss…  Since coffee contains no fat, you can drink it without worrying about adding more calories…but watch out what you put in it!  Avoid sugar and cream; semi skimmed or skimmed milk is better, and of course, drinking your coffee black is better still.  The caffeine in the coffee acts as a mild appetite suppressant and gives you an energy kick.

Recycling…  Coffee ~ including the used paper filters and also the leftover coffee ~ makes a good compost for your plants 🙂
  
 Other uses for coffee filters!
