Coffee when served and drunk without cream and milk has very less number of calories. A single coffee cup contains only 2 calories. So it is the best way to refresh yourself and to have vital nutrients like antioxidants when you are trying to lose weight and avoid/cure obesity.
Coffee improves your metabolism rate by up to 11% (in some cases). Moderate coffee consumption is hence an effective way for burning and losing more fat that is accumulated inside your body.
Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants which are necessary to clear the toxins and metabolic wastes from the body. Metabolic processes give rise to free radicals that harm the tissues and cells. Antioxidants react with these free radicals and form un-harmful substances that are subsequently cleared away from the body.
Prevention Against Type 2 Diabetes
Coffee consumption improves the ability of body to use the hormone called insulin, which is key hormone for sugar metabolism. Coffee has minerals like chromium and magnesium that regulate the synthesis and utilization of insulin and prevent Type 2 Diabetes.
Prevention Of Parkinson’s And Alzheimer’s Diseases
Coffee stimulates the brain cells and is rich in substances that prevent aging of the brain. Coffee lowers the risk of suffering from brain diseases called as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
Improvement Of Energy Levels
Coffee contains caffeine that blocks Adenosine (a neuro-transmitter). This escalates the secretion of other two transmitters called as dopamine and nor epinephrine. These transmitters stimulate the neurons and make them more active. Hence after consuming a coffee cup you notice changes like improvement in attention, mood, memory, reaction time and energy levels. All this collaborates to improve your cognitive sense and makes you smarter for your day to day functions. Coffee intake also boosts your metabolism rates so that you burn more energy during the day (due to stimulation of brain activity). Moderate coffee consumption (around 2 to 3 cups a day) is hence good for your health and fitness.
