This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Have Coffee Everyday
Does coffee rejuvenate and energize you?
Are you a sucker for the hot piping cup of Joe? Is coffee your middle name for breakfast? Do you crave for coffee at the start of the day?
For many of us, kick starting a day is incomplete without a cup of black espresso! The heat of the coffee helps give you comfort and warmth and is a treat for coffee aficionados the world over. Coffee originally was grown in Africa and South America. The beans now are crushed and ground in the United States to cater to a growing clientele in North America. With many varieties donning the coffee parlor shelves, here are a few things coffee lovers can take heart from:
1. Drinking coffee regularly leads to an increase in metabolism and is good news for those of you that follow a good workout routine.
With an exercise regimen in place, you can start off with the caffeine from the coffee and naturally boost the energy levels that help rev up your health and spirits. In a study conducted by the Journal of Applied Physiology found that endurance athletes who had a cup of coffee after exercise had a 66 percent increase in muscle glycogen that helped replace the deficient energy levels.
2. Coffee has a bevy of benefits for our brain. If you drink 3-5 cups of coffee every day, you decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s disease or even dementia.
Other studies have shown how drinking coffee daily can lead to lowering the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease – a neurodegenerative disorder to about 32- 60 per cent. Coffee is able to increase mood and reaction times in humans with an increase in memory and alertness too.
3. The Harvard Public School of Health found that adults who had two to four cups of caffeinated coffee every day had 50 per cent lower risk of suicide to those who drank decaf or no coffee at all.
Coffee also had high levels of antioxidants and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B5. With good doses of manganese and potassium, coffee can be a great life saver!
4. Coffee drinkers have a good level of happy hormones in their blood system.
Researchers have found how older adults who consumed four or more cups of coffee per day had 20 per cent lower risk of developing malignant skin cancer. With high levels of phytochemicals, coffee has life saving properties too.
5. Coffee users who started drinking coffee from one cup to more than that over a period of 5 years had 11 per cent lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Those users, who decreased their coffee consumption by more than a cup in a day, increased the risk of Type 2 diabetes by 17 per cent.
Coffee is often labelled as black gold. The coffee beans have a lot of power punched in it! The benefits of drinking coffee are truly time tested. With more and Americans taking to the drink in recent years, coffee connoisseurs have much to look up to.
