Drinking coffee reduces risk of type two diabetes Recent research from Scientists at America’s Harvard School of Public Health has revealed that increasing your daily dosage of coffee reduces the risk of suffering from type two diabetes. We’ve all been there; it’s 8AM and you are slumped over the coffee machine at work, waiting for a cup of that magical liquid to kick-start your day. Many people view a cup of coffee as a vehicle for caffeine, but according to the Harvard School of Public Health the power of these little beans is much more than you may aware of. A successful office is a productive office and a productive office is an office in good health; by installing a bean to cup coffee machine, as a manager you will keep your employees inside the building and away from the doctors.  

Keeping your staff healthy

There are multiple health benefits from having access to a bean to cup coffee machine within the working environment. Research has revealed that long-term coffee drinkers have a smaller risk of suffering from type two diabetes; a serious disease that affects 300 million people worldwide. Several studies also reveal that drinkers of the hot beverage also benefit from longer lifespans and have a lower risk of death, whilst lowering the chances of strokes. Your employees can also look forward to a healthy retirement; it has also been proven that the chances of suffering from Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s are greatly reduced.

Keep your workforce on top form

On tough days, work can be mentally exhausting for the majority of us. A source of good quality coffee can ensure that your members of staff can get through the most strenuous of days, not only because it escalates energy levels – but because coffee raises levels of brain functionality. Caffeine leads to an increased amount of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain, causing neurons to fire more rapidly; raising general cognitive function. So when it comes to your next staff meeting, why not begin with a couple of cups of coffee to get the ball rolling?
