Do you ever wonder what the coffee you drink is actually doing to your body?
Coffee used to be deemed as a harmful substance. It was pegged as something that was the cause of illnesses from stunted
growth to the increase the risk of Heart Disease. More recent studies have actually shown something totally different and boy, are we excited! It has now been found that consuming coffee can have many health benefits. Can you believe that? Something that was once considered so harmful is now considered to be good for you! The list goes on and on, so grab your cup of coffee and enjoy the ride!
1. Increase in Cognitive Function
Isn’t that great? This powerful little drink actually helps your brain stay alert. Obviously coffee has caffeine in it and it’s one of the many reasons we love it! It gives us a nice little boost when we’re feeling sluggish, but have you ever thought about how it can give us that boost and increase our cognitive function? In our brains, we have what are called Adenosine Receptors. Basically, Adenosine is a neurotransmitter that helps us fall asleep. Caffeine and Adenosine have a similar molecular structure, so when there is caffeine in our system it competes with the Adenosine and fights to prevent it from slowing us down.
2. Helps fight Depression
As of right now, Scientists do not know exactly how coffee helps fight off depression. They do however believe to have possible
answers to this. Depression is often a result of low serotonin levels in the brain and they suspect it to be a result of a bad
immune reaction that causes inflammation to the brain. Scientists believe that coffee may help reduce the inflammation because of the antioxidants found in it.
3. Can protect from Alzheimers Disease and Dementia
Honestly, I think this is the coolest thing I’ve ever read! Who knew drinking your morning coffee could potentially be helping you prevent Alzheimers and Dementia from setting in? Drink your coffee, and work on your future self while you satisfy your present self. A buildup of beta-amyloid is what is thought to be the main cause of Alzheimer’s while Caffeine is thought to help prevent the build-up of beta-amyloid. Also, coffee has that effect of an antioxidant which will reduce inflammation.
4. Increase in your energy levels with drastic physical performance improvement
Caffeine!! We all know coffee has that magic C word in it that makes us feel amazing! Unless you’re a decaf coffee drinker and there’s nothing wrong with that!
5. Coffee contains many Essential Nutrients such as:
-Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
-Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
-Manganese and Potassium
-Magnesium and Niacin (Vitamin B3)
If you’ve jumped on board with the recent health trend, then you know that each one of these Nutrients is quite essential to your health. Why else would they be called Essential Nutrients? So while you’re enjoying that delicious cup of coffee, you’re actually getting some of your vitamins in and taking care of your body.
All around, coffee is just a wonderful thing! In my opinion, everyone should drink it but that’s just my opinion.
