Benefits

Coffee benefits the human body in numerous ways. Expert studies performed on the human body revealed that we usually absorb about 300 milligrams of caffeine at once, which is equivalent to about 4 normal cups. Additional amounts are just disposed of, and cause no stimulation to the body of any kind. Also, the human body eliminates 20% of the caffeine from its system every hour.

Coffee plays an important role in Turkish people's lives. In the past, bridegrooms were required to vow during their wedding to always provide their new wives with coffee. If they failed to do so, the wives were entitled to a divorce.

Coffee also benefits plants. If you add a bit of cold coffee onto ailing houseplants it will help restore their health and color. You can also mix some used coffee residue into the soil to help revitalize your plants.

According to global economists, coffee has probably saved many people by keeping them alert while sleepiness would have overcome them had it not been for the effect of caffeine.
