5 Great Health Benefits of Drinking EspressoAcross America, millions of paper coffee cups are filled with all kinds of espresso-based drinks. In fact, 31% of all independent coffee shop sales involve espresso.

So why are so many people drinking espresso out of their paper coffee cups and other containers? There are actually plenty of health advantages that espresso drinkers benefit from, including:

  • Long-term memory enhancements -- Drinking the right amount of caffeine can provide great long-term memory improvements. According to Michael Yassa, a Neuroscientist from the University of California, drinking the equivalent of two espressos enhances memory consolidation and long-term memory. 

  • Improved attention span -- Caffeine also has been found to lessen fatigue and improve sustained attention and vigilance. Because espresso contains a strong dopamine concentration, the attention benefits can regress after a short period of time, but as long as you can pay attention to how your body reacts you can take advantage of these cognitive benefits. 

  • Stronger liver -- Espresso can also give you a boost in liver performance. In fact, according to Beauty and Tips Magazine, espresso drinkers actually have a 20% less chance of developing liver failure and cirrhosis. 

  • Improved teeth -- It might sound like a farce, but espresso actually helps with teeth as opposed to causing damage. Drinking large cups of coffee each day will certainly stain your teeth, but espresso is just a quick shot, so it's less likely to cause cavities. 

  • Reduced chance of developing other diseases -- Drinking a shot of espresso or two each day can help with all kinds of health concerns. A Swedish study found that espresso consumption can help prevent strokes. Also, espresso can help with combating diabetes. 

Be careful to not overindulge in coffee drinks of any kind, but as long as you're responsible with your coffee-drinking habits, you should be healthy, productive, and energized for many years to come.
