For those of us who can't live without our daily cup of coffee, it turns out that those brown beans may have even more benefits than just jump-starting your morning after a late night.

Here are some other reasons to drink joe:

It could help keep the blues away: A recent study showed that women who regularly drank coffee have a 20% less chance of being depressed.

It might help keep the pounds off: Having a nice cup of joe after a meal causes your body to slow down digestion so that you stay fuller longer, while increasing your metabolic rate.

It may boost fertility: Drinking java may help a guy's "little swimmers" in their quest to get to the egg.

So remember all these fun facts the next time some chump offers you tea.
