Coffee and tea are 2 of the most consumed beverages worldwide. Even so, in the mornings, people usually choose either a cup of coffee over tea. Although this may indicate certain preferences, choosing coffee as an official day-starter may not be as random as you think.
Not only can your daily cup of coffee help you feel more energized, burn fat and improve physical performance, it may also lower your risk of several conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. In fact, coffee may even boost longevity.
Below are 5 things that happens to your body when you take coffee in the morning...
1. Coffee will help you exercise better.
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 your body’s “fight or flight” hormone which helps you to prepare for physical exertion.
2. Coffee can help you with weight loss
Coffee contains magnesium and potassium, which helps the human body use insulin, regulating blood sugar levels and reducing your craving for sugary treats and snacks.
And this is a potent substance for body weight reduction, thus confirming that coffee is an interesting choice for those of us who might be looking for a slimmer figure.
3. Coffee can decrease the chance of developing diabetes
A study indicated that caffeine will lower the chance of getting diabetes. Just 3 cups of coffee a day will lead to a 42% risk reduction of the disease, which is pretty interesting. In another study, caffeinated coffee showed an impact on the decreased chances of developing diabetes type II.
4. Coffee will help you with concentration.
The caffeine in coffee acts as a mild stimulant to the central nervous system. Studies have shown that, depending on level of intake, caffeine can help to improve mental performance, especially on alertness, attention and concentration. In small doses, and as part of a healthy diet it can make us feel more awake and alert.
5. Coffee will give you an immediate boost.
Tea is a drink that contains caffeine and L-theanine. Theanine will help you relax, as caffeine interacts with adenosine receptors in our brains and reduces that feeling of fatigue.
Caffeine is considered a stimulant. It stimulates the body's central nervous system, and boosts the brain's production of a neurochemical known as dopamine, which controls the ability to focus and maintain concentration.
If you’re a tea lover, you might be considering adding some coffee to your daily routine. If you are concerned, there is no need to be. Tea has numerous great benefits too!
