Majority of us like to start morning with a shot of caffeine. It might be seen as an addiction, but there are myriad benefits of this addiction. 

Here are some benefits of drinking coffee that you should be aware of: 

Reduces risk of cancer

Coffee reduces risk of cancer. Caffeine contains polyphenols, which help reduce the risk of cancer. Drinking coffee regularly also decreases the incidence of early onset of breast cancer. 

Protects liver

According to research, the more coffee people drink, the less susceptible they are to the liver diseases such as cirrhosis. A recent analysis found that every two-cup increase in daily coffee intake was associated with a 43 percent lower risk of liver cancer. 

Good for brain

Moderate coffee also reduces the risk of dementia, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's. The reason is, caffeine is rich in antioxidants which prevent damage to the brain cells. 

Improves energy levels

Coffee can make you feel less tired and can also increase energy levels. Apparently, caffeine is the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world. 

Helps burn fat

Caffeine can be found in almost every commercial fat burning supplement. According to studies, caffeine can boost the metabolic rate by 3-11 percent. Specifically, it can increase burning of fat by as much as 10 percent in obese individuals and 29 percent in lean people.
