Celebrate National Coffee Day with a special cup of joe that will have you feeling light on your feet.  Coffee is generally regarded as unhealthy.  It is a necessary evil to put some pep in your step each morning or just a guilty pleasure to soothe the senses.  But contrary to the consensus, coffee can be as good for you as it is to you.

Among the many benefits that have been shown in recent studies, coffee is a rich source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are vital for maintaining a healthy body.  According to Joe A. Vinson, Ph.D., a professor of chemistry at the University of Scranton who has studied coffee extensively, “[Coffee] is the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S. diet.”
