3 Surprising Beverages to Help You live longer. you are going to like this..... the winners are:

COFFEE

A recent study published on a Harvard Health Blog noted that people who drank a moderate amount of coffee lived longer.  The blog is based on a study by scientists at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.  They compiled data from three ongoing studies involving almost 300,000 men and women for up to 30 years. Their results, recently published in the journal Circulation, found that moderate coffee consumption was linked with a lower risk of overall mortality, as well as a lower risk of death from heart and neurological diseases.

The reason why coffee may help you live longer is that coffee contains many antioxidants that protect the body by keeping free radicals from damaging molecules in the body. This oxidation is considered to be one among the mechanisms behind the aging process that causes common diseases like cancer and heart disease. Coffee is one of the major sources of antioxidants, outranking many fruits and vegetables.


TEA

If you already thought tea is good for you, now there is research published in the Annals of Epidemiology that backs you up.  The study suggests that green tea lowers the risk of heart disease and premature death. The study, conducted by Japan’s National Cancer Center, found that subjects in the study who drank 5 cups a day or more had the lowest risk of death from heart disease, stroke and respiratory diseases.  The antioxidants in tea may provide “survival benefits,” according to the researchers.  Just drink the tea you like best - it does not have to be a green tea for results.
