Coffee is the most popular drink in the world. Many people can’t imagine life without it in the morning, at lunch, and even in the evening.

Experts say that the benefits of this invigorating drink are undeniable. In addition to its energizing effect, coffee has been linked to a long list of potential health benefits, giving you even more reasons to start drinking coffee.

How coffee affects the body

Coffee contains caffeine, a central nervous system stimulant known for its ability to fight fatigue and increase energy levels.

One small study found that caffeine consumption increased the time to fatigue during cycling training by 12%.

Instant results:

  • Speeds up reaction and improves brain function – caffeine stimulates the nervous system and increases blood pressure.
  • Relieves headaches: Caffeine has analgesic properties and is often included in painkillers.
  • Helps with asthma and bronchitis – theophylline contained in coffee also expands and opens the airways. Sometimes patients who have recently undergone surgery are given medications with coffee content to stimulate respiratory processes.

In the long run:

  • Coffee contains polyphenols (a type of antioxidant) that make cells more resistant to damage and prevent high blood pressure and premature aging. Interestingly, the amount of antioxidants in decaffeinated coffee is the same as in decaf.
  • Coffee changes the level of intestinal peptides, hormones that control hunger or satiety, which is very useful if you are on a diet. In addition, it contains only 5 calories per 200 ml.

Coffee for weight loss

According to some studies, coffee can affect fat storage and support gut health, which can be helpful for weight management.

For example, one review of 12 studies found that coffee consumption may be associated with a reduction in body fat, especially in men.

In addition, one study showed that people who drank one to two cups of coffee a day were 17% more likely to meet recommended levels of physical activity compared to those who drank less than one cup a day.
