A recent study in South Korea was performed on tired rats who were exhibiting signs of stress due to a lack of sleep. The smell of coffee altered their brain’s chemical makeup and they became better able to deal with the stress.

#4.  It’s good for the liver, particularly in those who consume alcohol.

 

In fact, a 2006 study indicated that the more coffee a person drinks, the less likely they are to develop cirrhosis of the liver, a potentially fatal condition that is especially prevalent in those who drink heavily.

#5.  It could lessen your chances of developing Type II diabetes.
