Some people won’t start the day without coffee and their mood heavily depends on it. Studies have shown that the risk for depressions decreases when consuming coffee on a regular basis. Are you in a good mod yet?
Considering the recommended coffee consumption per day, the dark beverage can have various positive effects on your body and mind. The rule says: 3 to 4 cups per day are completely harmless. Nevertheless, this depends on the individual health history. People with heart problems can react stronger to caffeine and should therefore drink less coffee.
We are also big fans of the dark beverage. Here are our top 5 reasons why we love coffee:
Caffeine acts as a stimulant. It helps increase the stimulus processing and boosts the mental capacity and concentration. Caffeine also has a positive effect on your physical capacity, since it accelerates the heartbeat, increases the blood pressure and widens the respiratory tract.
Coffee doesn’t automatically make you lose weight, because you need healthy nutrition and sports in order to do it. Still, coffee can help you get there, because it boosts your metabolism. The reason for that is the increased consumption of energy and fat burning caused by caffeine.
For a long time drinking a glass of water along with coffee was a standard practice. Sure, you can do it, because drinking enough water is important. The truth is, coffee has no dehydrating effect on your body and can therefore be counted to your daily intake of fluids.
Coffee is more than just a beverage. Coffee grounds can also be used to make face peelings and masks. Or you can use cold coffee to water your plants with it – they will love it!
Coffee doesn’t always have to be served the traditional way – you can use it to prepare some delicious hot or cold beverages – such as chocolate coffee, a pumpkin spice latte or a creamy iced coffee! Here you can find more recipes with coffee. Give them a try!
