Coffee Coffee and Coffee

Coffee is the one of the most common consumed beverages worldwide and have positive health benefits.

Today I am sharing all great benefits of drinking coffee daily.

People who drink coffee appear to live longer. Drinking coffee was associated with lower risk of death due to heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes & kidney disease. People who consumed a cup of coffee a day were 12 percent less likely to die compared to those who didn’t drink coffee. This association was even stronger for those who drank two to three cups a day – 18 percent reduced chances of death.

Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play an important role in cancer prevention. Coffee may also increase elimination of steroids. Whether you like your coffee black, decaf, half-caff or even instant, feel free to drink up. Coffee consumption decreases the risk of colorectal cancer. Caffeine alone is not responsible for coffee’s protective properties.

The levels of beneficial compounds per serving of coffee vary depending on the bean, roast and brewing method.“said Stephanie Schmit, PHD, MPH.

Conclusion : COFFEE CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO A HEALTHY DIET & LIFESTYLE.

The less you eat , The longer you live.

The truth revealed years ago has its great effectiveness. The less you eat, the longer you live. As on current bases you will find the advise that ‘Eat less than your Hunger at a time.’ But actually it is suitable for the whole life. You have to reduce your calorie intake (if it is more than adequate) for your healthy life. Science behind this is here….

Calorie Restriction (CR) is a dietary intervention with potential benefits for healthspan improvement & lifespan extension.

The effects of calorie restriction on humans showed that cutting calorie intake by 15% for 2 years slowed aging and metabolism and protected against age-related disease.

Calorie Restriction decreased systemic oxidative stress, which has been tied to age-related neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease as well as cancer , diabetes, and others.

“Restricting calories can slow your basal metabolism, an if by-products of metabolism accelerate aging processes, calorie restriction sustained over several years may help to decrease risk of chronic disease and prolong life.”says Leanne M.Redman, associate professor of Clinical Sciences at Pennington Biomedical Research in Baton Rouge, LA.

Menopause & Mediterranean Diet

Menopause is the ceasing of the monthly menstruation cycle and the end of female fertility.

Menopause, with its decline in estrogen level , speeds a women’s loss of bone mass, increasing her risk of bone thinning disease osteoporosis and broken bones. Menopause and aging also reduces muscle mass. Decline in skeletal muscle mass and strength in older people are major contributors to increased illness, reduced quality of life and higher death rates.

The Mediterranean diet has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and certain other chronic diseases.

A new study of post menopausal women in Brazil finds that a Mediterranean diet is also beneficial for an older women’s bones and muscles. The researchers reported finding higher bone mass and muscle mass in postmenopausal women who adhered to a Mediterranean diet than those who did not. This way of eating involves a high intake of fruits and vegetables, grains, potatoes, olive oil and seeds; moderately high fish intake; low saturated fat, diary and red meat consumption; & regular but moderate drinking of Red wine.

Mediterranean diet could be useful as nonmedical strategy for the prevention of osteoporosis and fractures in postmenopausal women.

PCOS & Diabetes in Women

Coming again with some new information for all of my readers. Keep reading and spreading awareness for a healthy community.

PCOS – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome , Women who have polycystic ovary syndrome have a higher risk of developing type 2 Diabetes (T2D) and are diagnosed at an early age with the condition, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Many women with PCOS are obese but the risk for the development of diabetes in PCOS is unknown. PCOS is one of the most common endocrine conditions in women of childbearing age.

Women who have PCOS produce slightly higher amounts of testosterone and other hormones than average. The elevated levels in women with PCOS can contribute to irregular or absent menstrual periods, infertility, weight gain, acne or excess hair on the face and body. Women who have PCOS also face a higher risk of developing other health problems, such as Diabetes.

Researchers found that women with PCOS were four times more likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes compared to their counterparts who did not have the disorder. The average age of women with PCOS who received a diagnosis of T2D was 31 years. The average age for women women without PCOS and diagnosed with T2D was 35 years.

The study’s author note that BMI and fasting blood glucose levels are the best predictors of the development of Type 2 Diabetes in patients with PCOS.
