What are the benefits of drinking espresso

As long as you do not drink too much, espresso is good for you. But just why is espresso good for you? The reason is that it contains anti-oxidants that many people are unaware of. These anti-oxidants help to boost your health and it does not matter whether you drink espresso or a cappuccino.

Unfortunately lots of people will avoid drinking coffee because of the amount of caffeine that it contains. But this is not the only ingredient in it and there are plenty of others that are actually beneficial to our bodies. It has been found that the anti-oxidants contained within coffee help to boost our immune system to lend a hand in staying healthy. It has also been proven that anti-oxidants can help to decrease the likelihood of someone developing heart disease.

In research carried out by various places across the world the following was found that there were some benefits to be had from drinking coffee.

1. A reduced risk of diabetes. Research carried out at Harvard which analyzed data on 126,000 people over an 18 year period found that by drinking between 5 and 6 cups of coffee a day men reduced the risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes by 54% and women reduced their risk by 30%.

2. Parkinson's. In a recent study carried out it was found that men who drank 4 to 5 cups of coffee each day cut their risk of developing Parkinson's disease by nearly half compared to those who consumed little or no coffee each day.

3. Heart Disease. In a study carried out by Scottish Heart Health on 11,000 men and women it was found that the more coffee they drank the less risk there was of them dying from heart disease.

So as you can see from above there are many reasons as to why espresso is good for you. Why not start enjoying a cup or two each day from now on. I am sure your body will soon be thanking you for it!

Why choose Nespresso from just an espresso?

Nespresso takes the concept of making espresso and makes it easy thanks to their unique espresso capsule system. Instead of hassling with grinding your coffee beans or buying pre-ground espresso coffee, or even buying a coffee grinder, you can simply use a Nespresso Espresso Machine. In addition to espresso, you can make lattes, mochas, cappuccino and more.

The espresso capsule consists of a perfectly measured amount of pre-ground coffee that is hermetically sealed in a special capsule that locks in the freshness and flavor until it is released by the espresso machine. All you do is place the capsule in the espresso machine, press the coffee brew button, then remove and discard the used capsule. Perfect espresso, perfect coffee, no mess. Just convenience. Even the "espresso novice" can be making espresso like the pros in minutes!
