We're having another cup right now.
1. It really wakes you up.
So it's already your morning routine, but did you know that even just the scent of roasted beans can reduce the effects of sleep deprivation? Plus, it only take 10 minutes for those first sips to start working — and they last up to four hours. That's a pretty good payoff.
2. It makes your power nap so much better.
Since it takes a brief while for the caffeine to enter your bloodstream, taking a 20 minute power nap after drinking your favorite caffeinated beverage is the ultimate energy boost. Goodbye, afternoon sluggishness. A "coffee nap" is the best way to beat heavy eyelids.
3. It helps fight breast cancer.
Two or more cups a day can help stop breast cancer in its tracks, says a 2015 study. The brew's properties inhibit tumor growth and reduce the risk of recurrence. How? The caffeine and certain acids make affected cells more sensitive to treatment.
4. It's a great exfoliant.
Fancy a homemade scrub? Combine six tablespoons of finely ground coffee (fresh or used) with four tablespoons of coconut or olive oil to make a thick paste. Then, gently rub the mixture on your body and face in a gentle circular motion to remove dead skin. (Just be sure to avoid the eye area, which is extra sensitive.)
5. It can boost your metabolism.
It won't replace a trip to the gym, but the caffeine in your latte is a stimulant, which can get your metabolism going. Bonus: It also helps prevent adult onset diabetes. In fact, one study found a 12% reduction, and there was a stronger link for women than men. So go ahead and order a refill.
6. It can slow down the aging process.
Bioactive compounds in your French Roast also make you stay sharp. Scientists found coffee minimized the decline of motor skills and memory associated with growing old. Even better, there are links between drinking coffee and reduced risks of dementia, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's.
7. It makes your hair shinier.
To remove product buildup, massage some grounds into your hair before shampooing. It can get a little messy, but the beans will exfoliate your scalp as well. FYI: Coffee can stain lighter hair, so skip this if you've got blonde locks.
8. It protects your eyes.
Researchers discovered a powerful antioxidant in coffee can help prevent vision loss, blindness, and glaucoma. The compound, chlorogenic acid, works by stemming retinal damage.
9. It makes your workout seem easier.
Some days the stationary bike is not your friend, but win it over with an espresso. Gym-goers who received caffeine from researchers beforehand rated their workouts as easier and more enjoyable than those without. Even better? Those test subjects ate an average of 72 fewer calories that same day.
10. It can help prevent skin cancer.
Avoiding the tanning booths is one easy step, but science shows java can also help fight against skin cancer. While it's no excuse to ignore sunscreen, an extra latte could reduce the risk of melanoma.
11. It's great for your heart.
Your heart is hard at work all day long, beating over 4,000 times an hour. Keep it in tip-top shape by drinking three to five cups a day. You'll have a reduced risk for clogged arteries and heart attacks because it lowers your levels of coronary artery calcium.
12. It helps ward off depression.
Here's something to smile about: A decade-long study that tested thousands of female coffee-drinkers saw a decreased risk of depression. Sure, a mug can make you feel more alert in a number of minutes, but isn't nice to know your long-term happiness is also getting a boost?
"The 'magic' of coffee is in its potential to have both long-term and short-term benefits," agrees our metabolic therapy chef Janine.
But she has one warning before you top up: "You still want to make sure you cap your daily intake of caffeine at around 300 to 400 mg per day (about 3 to 4 cups) and cut yourself off after 3 PM if you're super-sensitive."
We'll drink another cup of coffee to that!
