The Health Benefits of Coffee; Like you needed more reasons to drink it!
Ready for some kickass news today? Coffee is healthy for you! But how healthy we talkin’ exactly? And in what ways does coffee give our body and brain a turbocharge? Let’s take a look at some of the killer ways coffee is good for your health!
1. Brain Boost
Studies have shown that the caffeine in coffee does more than just block receptors in your brain that tell you to grab some shut-eye. In fact, more than one controlled study has shown that caffeine is one hardcore substance! It gives you a heavy dose of energy, improves your mood and also improves brain function and performance. Some studies have even shown downing coffee helps give depression a solid beat down. Brain and mood boosting powers? I’ll take it!
2. Torch fat
Caffeine back at it again with #2! Multiple studies have shown that caffeine from coffee helps boost our metabolism and can also help obliterate fat. Good news for those trying to shed pounds and get into shape. Make coffee a weight-loss coach and companion. For those trying to shred some pounds though try to opt for black coffee or low fat options.
3. Gym Buddy
Looking for the perfect pre-workout? Why not just down some Joe before hittin’ the weights or treadmill? Coffee’s caffeine raises adrenaline and helps our body burn fat for fuel when we exercise or exert ourselves. Looking to be a monster in the gym? Drink a cup of coffee at least a half hour before you workout and prepare for an enhanced physical performance, too. Courtesy of your personal trainer, Coffee.
4. Cheat Death (sort of)
What do we say to the God of Death? Get bent until I’ve had my morning coffee! Or at least that’s the takeaway from a few choice studies that have found evidence that coffee drinkers not only live longer than non-drinkers but also have a lower risk of premature death. That doesn’t mean go try to jump Springfield Gorge on your son’s skateboard or nothing, but feel free to enjoy an extra cup… or ten. And I do mean ten because the next health benefit is a killer one. No pun intended.
5. Sky’s the limit
While many coffee drinkers guzzle down 3-5 cups of coffee per day. Some more popular science has revealed that as many as 25 cups in one day will not negatively affect your health. Given all the other health power ups mentioned above, why not go for just one more cup today? And for those wondering what sort of vitamins and nutrients coffee has to offer…
6. Vitamins, nutrients and minerals up the whazoo
We’ve seen a real gun show from caffeine, but that’s not all our bodies get from coffee. Coffee also provides some awesome antioxidants. Antioxidants keep our bodies in tip top shape and help slow down signs of aging. Coffee also shovels in a whole A team of vitamins and minerals like manganese, potassium, magnesium, riboflavin and niacin which give us a kickass supply of B vitamins. So not only is coffee an energy powerhouse, but it’s got more than one beneficial mineral up its sleeve.
