ATLANTA, GA, June 12, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In addition to tasting great, the gourmet coffee J. Martinez & Company Coffee Merchants sells may have a bevy of health benefits.

Coffee may be able to help you avoid a common issue with aging: the gradual fading of your mental sharpness. Recent studies have linked coffee consumption to a decreased chance of developing Alzheimer's disease or dementia with age. Participants had a 65 percent reduction in their chance of developing these diseases if they drank between three and five cups of coffee per day.

Even a lower number of cups of coffee per day can be beneficial. A Japanese study with more than 76,000 participants found that men who consumed one or two cups of coffee each day reduced their risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by 38 percent. J. Martinez & Company notes that coffee was not used as a replacement for regular exercise in this study.

An AARP study discovered that drinking even one cup of coffee per day might reduce your risk of dying by 6 percent. Drinking two or three cups reduced the risk of dying by 10 percent, and four or five cups saw a reduction of risk by 12 percent.

"According to one Harvard study, long-term coffee drinkers have a significantly reduced risk of developing Type 2 diabetes," says John Martinez, Owner of J. Martinez & Company. "This study also found that the more coffee the participant drank each day, the more significantly their risk was decreased -- just as long as they weren't adding sugar to each cup!"

Coffee may also help you to lose more weight over time. Green coffee extract has been linked in some studies with an increase in weight loss.
