How many people DON’T start their day with a cup of hot coffee? who doesn’t need the caffeine-filled punch to stay mental and physical alert ?
For long, there are so many negative side effects of drinking too much coffee that we actually drink it with guilty pleasure. Therefore you must find it surprising that drinking coffee actually delivers multiple benefits! and those benefits are well-established in mainstream medical community.
- Coffee enhances blood flow to the brain, also, caffeine protects our brain from dementia, Alzheimer Disease, mental decline, and cognitive degeneration etc. Caffeine can effectively boost an enzyme called NMNAT2 in our brain to guards neurons from stress and fight against unwanted protein that collect in the brain as we age.
- Coffee does good to our Cardiovascular health. while a commonly held belief asserts that caffeine seems to accelerate the heart rate, a research result published in 2014 issue of Epidemiology and Prevention proves that “moderate coffee consumption was inversely significantly associated with [cardiovascular disease],” which means that drinking 3 to 5 cups a day puts us in the group of people who face the lowest amount of risk from cardiovascular disease.
- Coffee boasts super-concentrated antioxidant which is rich in flavonoids, an antioxidant compound well-known for its antiviral, anti-allergic, anti-platelet, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor benefits. Since in North America, people usually don’t get adequate antioxidants from fresh vegetables and fruits, drinking a cup of coffee would be a nice way to make up for that deficiency!
- Coffee serves as good mood enhancer as well. Caffeine acts on our central nerve system, it stimulates the brain and all the major nerves. whenever you feel blue or depressed, have a coup of coffee, you will get a quick but safe mood lift!
So if you are a big fan of coffee, enjoy it ! Just be careful WHEN you drink it.
