Coffee has been scientifically proven to provide several health benefits such as, increasing mental acuity; increasing your energy level; coffee drinkers are less likely to have type 2 diabetes; fewer cases of certain cancers, and strokes.

The Genius of Coffee
Coffee is not a luxury... It's a part of everyday life.
- One of the world's most consumed beverages: After an extensive search on the internet I have found that coffee and tea fall in line right after water.
- World's largest commodity traded after oil: InvestorGuide.com (2013) and Forbes.com (2014) stated that coffee is the second largest commodity traded. As of today, According to NASDAQ (2014) Coffee volume is higher.
- Approximately 1.6 Billion cups of coffee are consumed daily: Forbes.com stated that five hundred billion cups of coffee are consumed every year worldwide, but few people know much about the world’s second most traded commodity (behind oil!) (2014).
- Millions pay up to $4 per cup and drink 3-4 cups per day: I started at 2 pots a day. Now I drink at least 3-4 cups a day and pay 56 cents to $1.15 a cup with Organo Gold - "the Coffee that Pays".
- Health Benefits: Hensrod suggested that recent research indicated that coffee may not be bad after all; for most people the health benefits outweigh the risks. He continued that studies have shown that coffee may have health benefits, including protecting against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes, liver disease, liver cancer, appears to improves cognitive function and decreases the risk of depression (2014).
