It's the beverage we can't live without-yet few consume it without some guilt. But the wonderful truth is that coffee has abundant health benefits. Coffee boasts more antioxidants than cocoa and tea, and even more than renowned antioxidant-rich fruits like oranges and blueberries. In fact, there are hundreds of healing compounds in coffee. Recent studies have shown that coffee consumption can significantly decrease or reduce the risk of many conditions, including Alzheimer's disease and dementia, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic constipation, dental caries, diabetes, gallstone disease, and liver disease. As in her previous bestselling books, Cal Orey combines ground-breaking research into all these health and weight loss benefits with home remedies, cosmetic uses, household uses, and dozens of healthy recipes.
