Coffee is one of the world’s most popular drinks, and it’s no wonder vending machine owners frequently contact Vendnet to order coffee vending machine parts. However, Cornell University researchers have discovered that this beverage does more than caffeinate morning commuters. Coffee also protects eyesight.
On average, raw coffee contains one percent caffeine. Even better, it contains between seven and nine percent chlorogenic acid. This natural chemical compound, a beneficial antioxidant, has been proven to reduce retinal degeneration in rodents. Protecting the retina is vital for good eyesight because its light-sensitive and nerve cells organize the visual images it receives.
Retinal degeneration can be caused by lack of oxygen, age, diabetes or glaucoma. Consumers can combat it by drinking regulated amounts of coffee daily. As coffee consumption increases, vending machine owners will find an even greater need for drink machine parts as they provide consumers with the aid to maintaining healthy eyesight.
