Study discovers mental health benefits of coffee

Can't get through the morning without that cup of joe? A recent study has found that not only does coffee give you a helpful burst of energy, it may reduce the risk of depression in women.

A research team led by Harvard School of Public Health professor Albert Ascherio began observing the java habits of approximately 50,000 women in 1980 and started monitoring signs of depression in 1996 (no participants had depression at the outset).

The study found that ladies who drank four or more cups of caffeinated coffee a day were 20 percent less likely to experience depression.

Researchers caution that further evaluation of the link between coffee and mood needs to be done and that the study doesn't prove a cause and effect relationship.

"We know for certain caffeine gets into the brain," Ascherio told WebMD Health News. "It activates several neurotransmitters related to depression."

A Dunkin' Donuts and CareerBuilder survey found that numerous Americans not only drink coffee to help them stay alert during the day, but also as a way to reward themselves for a job well done. The next time you want to celebrate that great presentation you pulled off at work, be sure to get your favorite coffee blend (and maybe even splurge on some trendy beauty products)!
