Caffeine has long been used to assist with weight loss, often used in various compounds, creams, or other products. This is because caffeine speeds up a process in the body called "thermogenesis", which is how the body naturally burns fat. Interestingly enough, black coffee benefits the body more than milky coffee in these instances, which might be due to the fat content in the milk being used, or added sugar, which is a known contributor to weight gain. However, coffee shouldn't be used alone in an attempt to lose weight - it's best to combine your daily coffee with regular exercise, a healthy, nutritional diet, and plenty of water intake. In fact, coffee can actually cause your body to retain water, which is one of the contributing factors to weight gain. A moderate amount every day will help you get the best benefits coffee has to offer.

We already know that one of the benefits of coffee it that it offers protects against coronary heart disease. In the past, coffee - and it's high caffeine content - has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease. This is probably because caffeine is a known stimulant, but the truth is that regularly drinking coffee - black, or with milk - lowers blood pressure, taking some of the pressure off your heart. Because of this, even hypertensive people can drink coffee. In fact, a study in the American Heart Association journal has shown that, due to the high antioxidant content in coffee, it could even have a cardioprotective effect, meaning it actively protects your heart. And because this relies on coffee's antioxidant content, you'll get the same benefits from decaffeinated coffee! You might be asking yourself - does black coffee have any benefits, or should I add milk? And the answer is simple. Milky coffee and black coffee offer exactly the same benefits!
