Caffeine, you know it commonly in coffee. Around 50 percent of Americans drink coffee. Coffee has had a bad rap in the past, even being linked to high blood pressure and also an increase in getting cancer. However, the negative light on coffee has changed. It is now reported that caffeine may actually prevent cancer and stop the advancement of the cancer as well. There have been studies that suggest that caffeine may reduce your risk of Parkinson’s by as much as 80%. Drinking 5 to 6 cups of coffee every day, or using a caffeine supplement or powder, can reduce men’s risk of developing diabetes by over 50%, and women’s by 30%. Drinking coffee helps increase the body’s sensitivity and response to insulin, therefore is probably the benefit in diabetes prevention.
So, drinking a cup of coffee has its benefits, or even using caffeine powders to deliver the caffeine more effectively and quickly. Plus, not only can you save money by using a powder, but you are not limited to only a drink! There have been tests on applying caffeine directly to the skin and then was exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Cancerous tumors were actually show to have shrunk in over 70 percent, while over 40 percent caused non-cancerous tumors to shrink as well. Even when given orally, drinking 3 to 5 cups of coffee, the result was shrinkage as well. The way the caffeine is so effective is by its ability to block the growth of the tumor by blocking the protein called ATR. This protein is part of the cell growth and needed in the principles of the cells DNA, and its ability to replicate. So, don’t be surprised if you are drinking a coffee, and also using a caffeine additive sunscreen with the end result of fighting cancer.
Although 6 cups of coffee per day seems like a lot, well it actually is. Taking it in powder form is probably more effective, with the same end result. There are dangers to too much caffeine, this can be an increased heart rate, insomnia, and even an increase in cholesterol (usually related to unfiltered coffee and other additives). Pregnant women should not use caffeine, and patients with heart troubles should probably stay away from it as well. Caffeine doesn’t just give us energy, but a health benefit as well. Used carefully and moderately, it can be a blessing in disguise.
