high in antioxidants
contains magnesium, potassium and some B vitamins
improves focus, memory, energy and concentration
it may (studies aren't wholly conclusive) improve metabolism, help the body burn fat, and aid in the prevention of developing diabetes and Alzeimer's.



coffee, benefits of coffee, what's in coffee


Remember that coffee is a stimulant, and to reap the benefits it should be taken in moderation and without the milk, cream and sugar.
