6 Mind Blowing Reasons Why You Should Drink Coffee Everyday
Coffee is my favorite beverage after coconut water. I drink 2-4 small cups every day. Coffee has become an integral part of my daily ritual. It’s close to impossible for me to start writing without sipping this awesome beverage.
Here Are Some More Benefits Of Coffee
1) Coffee Stimulates Nervous System
I sip some black coffee 10-15 minutes before my workout sessions as it helps stimulate my nervous system. Drinking coffee increases adrenaline levels in my blood. This hormone, as we all know, is the ‘fight or flight’ hormone, and it prepares my body for intense physical exertion. 1https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3296361/
2) Coffee Has A Effect On Plasma Free Fatty Acids
Coffee also helps in signaling fat cells to release fatty acids in the blood, which then can be used as fuel during my intense workouts. 2https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7408399/
Tip- Don’t waste your money buying those chemical-laden pre-workout powders or drinks. Just sip this black beverage, and you’ll be surprised by how much your physical performance can improve!
3) Coffee Can Lower Your Risk Of Developing Type 2 Diabetes
A study in Science Daily states that if a person drinks more than 4 cups of coffee every day, he/she can reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes by a whopping 50%! 3https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/01/120111133958.htm
4) Coffee Can Fight Depression
According to this study, moderate caffeine intake (< 6 cups/day) has been associated with fewer depressive symptoms, fewer cognitive failures, and a lower risk of suicide. 4https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20164571/
5) Coffee Can Lower The Risk Of Certain Cancers
This study observed a strong inverse association between coffee consumption and the risk of lethal prostate cancer. 5https://academic.oup.com/jnci/article/103/11/876/2516503 In one of the studies of 489,706 men and women published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, coffee consumption was inversely associated with colon cancer, particularly proximal tumors. 6https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/96/2/374/4576912?papetoc
6) Coffee Has Massive Amounts Of Antioxidants
Besides caffeine, coffee has other health-promoting substances like chlorogenic acids, bioflavonoids, vitamins (B2, B5), minerals (magnesium, potassium) etc. 7https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/134/3/562/4688575
Before You Rush To The Kitchen And Make Yourself A Cuppa, Know This
We all respond differently to coffee. I know some people who can drink a large mug and sleep like a baby after that; on the other hand, I know people who have trouble sleeping at night with just a sip of this beverage. My body handles coffee pretty well. But I make sure that I don’t drink after 4 pm.
Caffeine can interfere with sleep if you drink it in the evening or near bedtime. Also, consuming caffeine when you are fatigued can worsen your mood. Excessive caffeine can cause irritability, stomach problems, anxiety and restlessness. 8https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20164571/, 9https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24071782/ And lastly, if you are pregnant, Stay Away from coffee at all costs.
I know my limit is 4, a maximum of 5 medium cups. I usually don’t go beyond this number, and when I do, for whatever reason, I don’t feel that good.
Anything In Excess Is Not Good.
