Coffee drinkers rejoice!
You can enjoy your cup of joe a little more today. Aside from its ability to give you a morning pick-me-up, coffee actually has other legitimate health benefits. Discover some of the reasons to drink coffee below:
Want to lose weight? Not as active as you’d like to be? Coffee has been proven to boost the metabolic rate, which is why caffeine is a common ingredient in “fat-burning” supplements.
Researchers believe a specific compound found in coffee lowers liver enzymes and slows the progression of liver disease. This is good news, especially if you drink alcohol.
Studies show one to six cups of coffee a day helps you focus and improves mental alertness. Caffeine increases blood flow, which your body responds to by firing neurotransmitters and increasing blood oxygen levels to help you think.
A cup of coffee before a workout, especially endurance sports, can jolt athletic performance. Coffee increases the number of fatty acids in the bloodstream, which allows muscles to absorb and burn those fats for fuel.
