Coffee Lowers Suicide Rates, Study Finds

Friday, March 14, 2014
mobile espresso vanDrinking coffee may actually make you happier. Studies show that a daily cup (or three) of coffee actually reduces symptoms of depression.

At least one in 10 Americans are severely depressed, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Depression is, moreover, a serious issue all over the world. 

The Results Are In; Drinking Coffee Cures Emotional Ails
Coffee boosts happiness levels -- and may even lower suicide rates. "A study last year found that coffee is actually linked to lower risk of depression, although the difference was small. Other research found that it’s linked to a significantly reduced risk of suicide," Forbes reports. The studies, of course, have scientific foundations. Forbes adds, "Researchers say it may be because of the mild boost caffeine gives to neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which both play roles in mood." In 2013, Harvard research revealed that people can reduce suicide risks by up to 45% by drinking two to three cups of coffee per day, the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) says.

Consumers, of course, should be mindful of how much coffee they drink -- and when. Too much coffee and/or drinking coffee late in the day may keep people up at night. Keep in mind that limited sleep will have the opposite effect -- or will actually make depression and anxiety symptoms worse.

Mobile Espresso Vans Serve Coffee On-The-Go
The good news for regular coffee drinkers -- and consumers trying to increase their intake to boost their mood -- is that coffee is more widely available than ever before. Mobile espresso vans, mobile coffee vans, and mobile coffee franchises are sweeping the globe. Mobile coffee vans serve coffee on-the-go -- for a quick cup of coffee before work, or for coffee at events, such as festivals and conferences.

Coffee can actually make you happier, so drink up. Several studies show that moderate consumption of coffee can actually be beneficial for your emotional health.
