Things Coffee Drinkers Enjoy
Lately, we have seen studies questioning the benefits of the drinks we usually drink, including coffee, and we may have been told on more than one occasion that they are bad, although we don’t really know why.
Coffee is in this category but the only reason we think it is harmful to our body is because of caffeine. But for coffee enthusiasts and addicts, they know the benefits they get from drinking coffee. Here is a short list for your journey today:
Coffee can help you lose weight
Coffee is one of the few natural drinks that help you lose weight. Studies show that caffeine can specifically increase fat burning, up to 10% in obese individuals and 29% in thin people.
Caffeine can dramatically improve physical performance
Caffeine stimulates the nervous system, causing signals to be sent to fat cells to break down body fat.
Caffeine causes fat cells to break down body fat, releasing them into the blood as free fatty acids and making them available as fuel. Because of this, it makes sense to have a good cup of coffee about a half hour before going to the gym.
Coffee lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes
Studies show that people who drink this beverage reduce this disease by up to 50%.
One daily cup will reduce it by 7%; the study was applied to 457,922 people.
It can protect you from Alzheimer’s and Dementia
These diseases affect people over the age of 65, unfortunately, there is no cure but there are ways to prevent them such as exercising or drinking coffee.
Studies show that 65% of people who used to drink this drink do not have Alzheimer’s or Dementia.
Caffeine may decrease the risk of Parkinson’s disease
Like Alzheimer’s there is no cure but you can focus on prevention. People who drink decaffeinated coffee have a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease.
Coffee can fight depression and make you happier
You can tell this the minute you finish the first cup, your mood levels change. A study published by Harvard University in 2011 showed that a woman who drinks 4 cups of coffee a day is 20% less likely to have depression.
Maybe less likely to be at risk for different types of cancer
Coffee seems to have a protective effect against two types of cancer: liver cancer and colon cancer.
Liver cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the world, while colon cancer is the fourth leading cause of death. Studies reveal that coffee drinkers have up to a 40 percent lower risk of liver cancer. A study of 489,706 individuals found that those who drank 4-5 cups of coffee a day had a 15% lower risk of colon cancer.
It can help you live longer
For those who drink this drink frequently, it helps that they don’t have as many illnesses as people who don’t drink it. So it will help you live longer.
Coffee stimulates neural activity in the brain and allows the release of dopamine and norepinephrine (substances that increase heart rate and blood pressure). Caffeine has also been shown to improve mood, reaction time to external stimuli, memory and overall cognitive function.
Experts mention that each cup of coffee contains a high level of antioxidants, even higher than the combined fruits and vegetables; 3 percent of Potassium and Magnesium; 2 percent of Niacin and Thiamine; 11 percent of Vitamin B2 and 6 percent of Vitamin B5.
If you are a coffee lover now you know it’s not bad and you don’t have to feel guilty about loving a drink that everyone pours salt on so much. Enjoy your next cup of coffee.
