Benefits of Drinking Coffee
Coffee invigorates your body and increase mental ability. Coffee contains caffeine, the most common stimulant that is taken by most people. Once caffeine is taken through drinking a cup of coffee, it goes into your brain through the blood vessel and once it is there, it blocks neurotransmitters which will develop a kind of stimulating effect resulting to an improved energy level, moods and other brain functions.
Coffee Helps You Burn Fats
According to medical studies, caffeine burns as much as 10 percent fats in obese people and 29 percent in lean ones. However, there is an indication that this burning fat ability of coffee will likely deteriorate in the long run.
Caffeine can Improve Body Performance
When these fat cells break down fats in the body, they then release them into the blood stream as fatty acids. They are responsible for body fuel that energizes our body. Caffeine likewise increases adrenaline in the blood. An increase in the adrenaline level causes the body to be in fight or flight mode. Given such effects, the body performance is enhanced by 11-12 percent. The adrenaline is responsible for the emergency reaction of a person under a critical situation.
Coffee Reduces Probability of Diabetes and Alzheimer’s Syndrome.
Moderate drinking of coffee lowers down risks of Diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease in an individual. With moderate drinking, this refers to about 2-4 glasses of coffee a day. The presence of antioxidants in coffee prevents damage in brain cells and boost effects of neurotransmitters or those responsible for our cognitive functions. Preliminary medical studies indicate that as you take more coffee the more that you lower the percentage of brain cancer in your body.
Therefore in summary, the presence of caffeine in the body leads to an increase in adrenaline which in turns commands the fat cells to release fatty acids which gives us energy to be constantly on the go,
