Why You Should Drink Coffee
1) Increase Energy Levels & Make You Smarter 🧠
We all know coffee can increase your energy levels. And we all know it’s really the caffeine in the coffee that does this! So who is the real hero now?
Caffeine is the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world. After you drink coffee, the caffeine is absorbed into your bloodstream. From there, it travels to your brain. Many controlled studies in humans show that coffee improves various aspects of brain function — including memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction times and general mental function.
2) Helps You Burn Fat 🔥
Caffeine for the win again! Caffeine is found in almost every commercial fat-burning supplements. Even in green tea extract, which is another fat-burning side kick. It’s one of the few natural substances proven to aid fat burning. Many studies show that caffeine can boost your metabolic rate by 3–11%.
3) Improves Physical Performance 💪
If that’s not enough to convince you… Did you know caffeine also stimulates your nervous system? This will increase epinephrine (a.k.a adrenaline) levels in your blood stream. This is the fight-or-flight hormone, which prepares your body for intense physical exertion. Try drinking a cup of black coffee before your next work out!
4) Give Me All The Essential Nutrients!☕
Many of the nutrients in coffee beans make their way into the finished freshly brewed cup of coffee. A single cup of coffee contains:
Riboflavin (vitamin B2): 11% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI).
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5): 6% of the RDI.
Manganese and potassium: 3% of the RDI.
Magnesium and niacin (vitamin B3): 2% of the RDI.
More vitamins please!
5) Helps Lower Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes 👩⚕️
More than 34 million Americans have diabetes (about 1 in 10), and approximately 90-95% of them have type 2 diabetes. Diabetes elevate blood sugar levels caused by insulin resistance or a reduced ability to secrete insulin. Coffee drinkers have a significantly reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. Studies observe that people who drink the most coffee have a 23–50% lower risk of getting this disease. One study showed a reduction as high as 67%.
...Just make sure not to add extra flavored creamer to your cup of joe!
