Our office has never hid the fact that we love coffee. Regular, decaffeinated, black, espresso, latte – whatever. It doesn’t matter. We are addicted! Addicted in the healthiest way, of course!
We consider our addiction to a good thing, because of the benefits associated with consuming coffee. There are numerous myths surrounding coffee and often times it is accused of causing some pretty serious health problems. Let’s investigate…
Coffee is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that can improve your health. Whether you drink regular or decaf, you get the same amounts of antioxidants. Coffee can help people feel less tired and increase energy levels. After you drink coffee, the caffeine is absorbed into the bloodstream, travels into the brain, and blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine. After consumption, you are more alert.
It can also help you burn fat and improve physical performance. Caffeine is found in almost every commercial fat burning supplement and sends signals to the fat cells to break down body fat. It is even recommended that you drink a small cup of coffee 30 minutes prior to working out. Drink coffee and burn fat – we love it!
Coffee may lower your risk of Type II Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, liver disease, cancer, heart disease, and stroke – meaning coffee can potentially help you live longer.
It is also known to assist with making you happier and fight depression.
