Coffee & Reduced Inflammation

As I write this, I have a steaming cup of coffee sitting on my desk, as I do enjoy a cup in the morning.  Did you know yet another study just published, shows the benefits of caffeine?  Though coffee is controversial as a health aid, this study found that it does have a surprising benefit.  Those individuals that drink coffee regularly (5+ cups daily) had lower levels of inflammation.  This is amazing, as inflammation is now considered the driving force for many chronic diseases.  In fact most of the diseases of aging are basically diseases of inflammation. It seems that caffeine inhibits a molecule that promotes inflammation and the more coffee these folks drank, the more protected they were from a chronic state of inflammation. This was determined by the participants blood samples.  Time for another cup of Joe!!
