Here are few pieces I choosed from articles about health benefits from coffee.

Coffee has been shown to prevent strokes, heart disease, type 2 Diabetes, and helps to prevent the onset of Parkinson’s disease. Coffee is full of phenolic nutrients which are antioxidants that help fight off oxidative stress and damage to cells in the body.

When the body is exposed to high levels of oxidative stress, this speeds up the aging process. Oxidative stress can lead to damage of our DNA, protein, and lipids in the body. Once again, here comes coffee to the rescue!

Coffee has higher levels of phenolic nutrients, which can help reduce the effects oxidative stress has on the body. By reducing the high concentration of free radicals, you are saving the cells of the body from aging. This slows the aging process considerably.

What caffeine does is increase free flowing fatty acids from your fat stores allowing you to access fat instead of carbs or lean muscle for energy. If you drink your coffee 30 to 60 minutes prior to your workout make sure you do it in a fasted state. This will help isolate those fat cells when doing high intensity exercise.

Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, therefore increasing the signals sent to the muscles. This causes stronger contractions, allowing you to do Tracy's Meta Sequences without break :).
