Coffee is good for you – It has been researched and proven over and over again, the primary ingredients of coffee (especially the stimulant caffeine) are in fact very good for you … to the extent that some nutritional authorities advocate that you should drink several cups a day for the following reasons: It makes you burn fat; it may drastically reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes; it lowers your risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases; it can drastically lower the risk of cirrhosis off the liver; it is loaded with nutrients and anti-oxidants and can even lower your risk of death! Phew, well without going into the medical specifics (just Google it) it’s a fact …drunk in moderation (3 to 5 cups a day), coffee is good for you!
Coffee gets you going – There’s nothing more important in the workplace than stimulation, whether it’s the stimulation of working in a great environment, or the stimulation that a great cup of coffee can give you to really get you going. It has been shown in many trials that the effects of caffeine on the brain are so good that it doesn’t only get you going, but can actually make you smarter!

Caffeine improves physical performance too, so it really is a great way to be stimulated both mentally and physically.
