500 BC in Ethiopia, is what the most consistent histories put the discovery of the coffee plant although myths proliferate about it origin. The travelers got it to Arabia, a place where it obtained its name, after observing the stimulating effects of its berries.

All through, coffee has been credited with the miraculous health effects, of long centuries. However with almost every miracle, there are some facts underneath.

Mammalian sperm swims faster, farther and longer in coffee laced solution, is suggested by several studies. The basic assumption is that they are stimulated by caffeine. A Harvard study watched closely over 100,000 people for almost 20 years and suggested that reduction in diabetes and liver cirrhosis or decrease of asthma can be obtained by moderated use of coffee.

The antioxidants in coffee as in wine have been hyped for keeping the heart healthier, although debates rage whether the cons are overshadowed by the pros. Being diuretic, it encourages urination frequently. At times stimulation from caffeine may lead to lasting nerve degeneration, is a fact asserted by some. It can even lead to insomnia and is also a natural insecticide.
