Thirteen benefits of drinking coffee


Coffee is a popular beverage all over the world, and it has many impressive health benefits. Drinking coffee every day not only makes you feel more energetic, burns fat, and improves physical fitness, but it also reduces the risk of various diseases, such as type II diabetes, cancer (liver cancer and rectal cancer), Alzheimer’s disease and Pa Jinsen disease and so on. In fact, coffee can even extend life. If you like its taste and can tolerate its slight bitterness (caused by the antioxidant chlorogenic acid), then don't hesitate to drink one or more cups of coffee a day.


1. Coffee can increase energy levels and make you more energetic

Drinking coffee can help people feel less tired and increase your energy levels. This is because it contains a stimulant called caffeine, which is actually one of the most common edible psychoactive substances in the world. After you drink coffee, caffeine will be absorbed by the blood and enter the brain from the blood. In the brain, caffeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter called adenosine. When this happens, the amount of other neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine and dopamine will actually increase, resulting in increased firing of neurons. Many human controlled trials have shown that coffee can improve all aspects of brain function. This includes memory, mood, alertness level, reaction time and general cognitive function.


2. Coffee can help you burn fat

Did you know that caffeine is present in almost all commercial fat burning supplements? Because caffeine is one of the few natural substances proven to help fat burning. Several studies have shown that caffeine can increase the metabolic rate by 3-11%. Other studies have shown that caffeine can particularly increase fat burning, reaching 10% in obese people and 29% in ordinary people. However, these The impact on people who drink coffee for a long time may be reduced.



3. Caffeine can greatly improve the body's motor function

Caffeine stimulates the nervous system to send signals to fat cells to break down body fat to produce energy. At the same time, it also increases the level of adrenaline-EPINEPHRINE (ADRENALINE) in the blood. Adrenaline is a "fight or flight" hormone (human hormone) designed to prepare our body for strenuous physical activity. Caffeine causes fat cells to break down body fat, release them into the blood as free fatty acids, and use them as fuel. Considering these effects, it is not surprising that caffeine can increase physical activity by 11-12% on average. Because of this, it makes sense to drink a cup of espresso half an hour before going to the gym, and it can increase your exercise volume appropriately.


4. Coffee contains essential nutrients

Coffee is not only a black drink, but also contains many essential nutrients. In addition to carbohydrates and amino acids, there are also these substances in coffee:

Riboflavin (vitamin B2): provides 11% of the daily requirement (RDA); pantothenic acid (vitamin B5): provides 6% of the daily requirement (RDA); manganese and potassium: provides 3% of the daily requirement (RDA) ;

Magnesium and Niacin (B3): Provide 2% of the daily demand (RDA).

Although these substances account for a small proportion of daily demand, most people drink one cup or even 3-4 cups of coffee a day. Over time, the content of these elements in the human body will quickly increase.



5.Coffee can reduce your risk of type 1 diabetes

Type diabetes is a huge health problem that currently plagues about 300 million people around the world. It is characterized by increased blood sugar in the case of insulin resistance or inability to secrete insulin. For some reasons, people who drink coffee suffer from type diabetes. The risk is greatly reduced. Studies have shown that people who drink the most coffee have a 23%-50% lower risk of developing this disease; another study shows that the risk of developing this disease is 67% lower; a study of 18 items involving 457,922 people A large-scale review of the data shows that a cup of coffee a day can reduce the risk of type 1 diabetes by 7%.


6. Coffee can prevent Alzheimer's disease and dementia

Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease worldwide and the main cause of dementia. This disease usually affects people over 65 years of age. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's disease. However, there are a number of measures that allow us to prevent diseases, including what we usually think of as healthy eating and exercise. At the same time, drinking coffee is also very effective. Studies have shown that people who drink coffee have a 65% lower risk of Alzheimer's disease.
