Gone are the days when it was thought that drinking coffee was bad for you. In fact, in recent years, scientists have found that there are many health benefits to drinking coffee. From physical perks to mental ones, it has much to bring to a healthy diet. So, let’s take a look at exactly how it can help you stay in peak condition.
Coffee Can Help You Lose Weight
It hardly a secret that it contains caffeine, but did you know that caffeine is very good at burning fat? In fact, if you check out the ingredients list of any of the fat-burning supplements you can buy over the counter, one of the main ingredients will almost certainly be caffeine.
Makes Your Workout More Effective
Caffeine also makes your body produce more adrenaline. You probably know that adrenaline is produced when your body thinks you need to do something physical. So, if you go for an evening run or to the gym, drink a cup half an hour before you start; you’ll have more energy, and you will be able to do more exercise. Buying fresh coffee online and taking a flask with you wherever you go, will mean you always have a cup of extra energy to hand.
Coffee Contains Plenty of Nutrients
Many people are unaware that coffee starts out life as a fruit; a type of cherry to be precise. The fruit is full of nutrients and many of those nutrients remain in the beans. Coffee contains vitamins B2, B3, and B5. It also contains manganese, magnesium and potassium. Two or three cups of coffee a day adds up to a fair amount of the recommended daily intake of those nutrients.
Fights Against Feeling Depressed
While it is not fully understood why, it seems that it can actually make you happier. Whether it has something to do with the nutrients within the coffee, or the effects of the caffeine, drinking coffee can have a dramatic effect on the way you feel.
Helps Fight Against Age-Related Diseases
One of the main reasons people try to maintain a healthy diet is to live longer. The problem with living longer is that many age-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia become more likely. The good news is that coffee can help lessen the risks of getting those diseases by as much as 65%.
Coffee Is Packed with Antioxidants
An healthy diet should contain plenty of fruit and veg because fruit and veg contain lots of antioxidants. Amazingly, it is also jammed packed full of antioxidants. In fact, many people living in western countries get more antioxidants from drinking coffee than they get from any other food they eat.
To summarise, it is great. It is full of nutrients, antioxidants and caffeine, all of which are enormously helpful when it comes to maintaining a healthy diet. So, adding a cup or two a day is definitely a healthy addition to your diet. I definitely will continue to start my day with coffee!
