4 MORE Reasons Why Good Coffee Service Is Good For Employees
Our previous blog post discussed 4 surprising health benefits of coffee consumption. The Java Geniuses are back this week to pour some more useful health information into your pot of knowledge. Here are 4 more ways coffee doubles as a mental and physical treatment for your office.
1. Reduces Inflammation
Coffee is filled with antioxidants, which help to neutralize free radicals in the body, leading to lowered inflammation. Caffeine has also been said to block the process that causes brain inflammation, which leads to diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. As if that wasn’t enough, Cafestol and kahweol (substances found in coffee) have been shown to have liver benefits and some anticancer effects.
2. Lowers Risk of Skin Cancer
The reasoning behind the results remain to be seen, but a study performed by the Harvard School of Public Health found that caffeine lowers the risk of developing basal cell carcinoma, the most common type of skin cancer. Certain flavonoids in caffeine have been found to inhibit the formation of UVB-induced tumors. Caffeine helps the body to kill off skin cells damaged by UV light exposure. When these damaged cells are gone, they no longer have the ability to spread.
3. Improves Skin Complexion
The acidic element of coffee has the ability to tighten your facial pores, creating a protective layer and giving the appearance of tighter skin. Tighter skin = younger-looking skin. There is actually a Kenyan product, “coffee facial polish” that infuses coffee extracts and jojoba oils, leaving your skin soft and supple. According to the University of Miami Cosmetic and Research Institute, coffee has been proven to yield results just as effective as the top skin care products on the market.
4 Helps Grow Hair
Journal of Dermatology found that caffeine- infused shampoo promotes fast absorption into the hair follicle. Caffeine strengthens hair, promotes growth, and has even been proven to slow down the hair-loss process. This isn’t so much of a health benefit as a perk. Great taste and great hair? What more could you ask for out of a cup of coffee?
Of course, a gourmet coffee service is not an adequate replacement for health benefits at your company, but it does carry more power than most people realize. When deciding whether or not to incorporate the goodness of gourmet coffee into your office setting, remember these reasons. Healthy employees equal happy employees. Let coffee work its magic on their minds and bodies and watch your business benefit from improved morale and productivity.
