Coffee is praised by most for it's most obvious energizing effect but lately it's also been proven to improve various elements regarding one's health, including a positive impact on one's sex life.

Several studies over the last few years have found that coffee can be good for the heart, it can help lower the risk of diabetes, it may reduce the risk of multiple sclerosis, and it also can improve erectile dysfunction.

Here are some of the findings according to the study:

-Of 25,100 South Korean men and women screened, one in seven of whom had detectable levels of coronary artery calcium (CAC) – an early sign of coronary heart disease or potential blood clots – the team found that the level of CAC was highest among those who had less than one cup or more than five cups of coffee daily, but lowest among those who drank between three to five cups.

-Among the 120,000 health sector workers studied, those with the highest coffee consumption, three cups or more per day, also had the lowest risk of type 2 diabetes – 37% lower than those who consumed a cup or less per day.

-A 2014 study found that those who increased their daily caffeine intake by about 1.5 cups of coffee a day over a four-year period had an 11% lower risk for adult-onset diabetes in the subsequent four years than those whose intake remained the same.

-The findings of a US and Swedish study which compared more than 1,000 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) to a similar number of healthy people suggested that individuals who drink four to six cups of coffee daily may be less likely to develop the disease.

-A study by the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston found that men who drank two to three cups of coffee a day were less likely to have erectile dysfunction (ED).

-Published back in 2015 in the journal PLOS ONE, the findings showed that men who consumed 85-170mg of caffeine a day were 42% less likely to report ED, while those who drank 171-303mg daily were 39% less likely, when compared to those who only drank 0-7 mg a day.

So for all of you who don't drink coffee, maybe these studies will change your mind, or maybe not, but let's face it, coffee's pretty great.
