Waking up first thing in the morning to a good cup of coffee is one of the ways that most of humanity charges their daily batteries. Have you ever taken the time to figure out why this little cup of “black gold” gives you that get-up-and-go feeling?
Here are just 3 reasons why our bodies love coffee!
1. Coffee Can Make You Smarter
The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine, which is a stimulant and the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world. Caffeine’s primary mechanism in the brain is blocking the effects of an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine.
Caffeine potently blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, leading to a net stimulant effect. Controlled trials show that caffeine improves both mood and brain function.
2. Coffee Can Help You Burn Fat and Improves Physical Performance
Caffeine, partly due to its stimulant effect on the central nervous system, both raises metabolism and increases the oxidation of fatty acids. Caffeine raises the metabolic rate and helps to mobilize fatty acids from the fat tissues. It can also enhance physical performance.
3. Coffee is Loaded With Nutrients and Antioxidants
Many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the final drink, which actually contains a decent amount of vitamins and minerals.
A cup of coffee contains (30):
6% of the RDA for Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5).
11% of the RDA for Riboflavin (Vitamin B2).
2% of the RDA for Niacin (B3) and Thiamine (B1).
3% of the RDA for Potassium and Manganese.
Coffee contains a decent amount of several vitamins and minerals. It is also the biggest source of antioxidants in the modern diet.
