Coffee and catching up with old friends or going for a coffee date – we drink coffee morning, day and night with friends, business associates, and lovers. But do you know coffee has many health benefits and boosts your mood instantly? Read below to know 8 amazing reasons to have a cup of coffee:

  • Reduces suicidal thoughts and depression: Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system of our brain and boosts the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline, which elevate your mood. Two cups of coffee a day can decrease the risk of suicide by 50 %.
  • Helps to burn fat and lose weight: Coffee contains magnesium and potassium, which helps the human body to use insulin, regulating blood sugar levels and reducing your craving for sugary treats and snacks. Also, it helps fat cells to break down body fat and use it as fuel for training.
  • Improves physical performance: Have a cup of black coffee about an hour before workout and your performance can improve by 11-12%. Caffeine increases adrenaline levels in your blood. Adrenaline is the hormone that helps you to prepare for physical exertion. Also, it not only reduces post-workout muscle pain in athletes but also decreases levels of fatigue during the last minutes of work-out.
  • Sharpens memory: Moderate intake of coffee can improve memory and cognitive performance of the brain because of its caffeine levels. According to studies, drinking coffee makes your brain work in a very effective and smarter way. It not only keeps us awake but at the same time, it keeps our memory sharper.
  • Lowers the risk of developing Cancers: According to research, drinking coffee lowers the risk of both liver and colorectal cancer. Liver cancer ranks third for cancer-related deaths whereas colorectal ranks fourth. Coffee has the ability in reducing the impact of chemical carcinogenesis in liver tissue and also has an inverse relationship with liver cirrhosis.
  • It can reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes: Caffeine decreases your insulin sensitivity and impairs glucose tolerance, therefore reduces your risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • You have fewer chances to develop Parkinson’s disease: Caffeine is not only linked to a lower chance of developing Parkinson’s disease, but it may also help those with the condition better control their movements with the help of coffee in moderation.
  • You could live longer: Recent studies showed that coffee drinkers live a longer and healthier life and lower the risk of premature deaths.
