Health Benefits of Drinking Black Coffee
Coffee, what a wonderful drink. If you're like me, you drink this daily. The feeling of the first sip of coffee in the morning, sending shivers up through your body, fueling you with caffeine and getting you ready and focused for the day ahead. I love that feeling. That isn't all there is to drinking coffee though.
Surprisingly coffee is one of the most popular drinks worldwide. Every day two billion cups are consumed by people like me and you. That's huge! In the UK alone, we drink 95 Million cups of coffee a day.
Below are some of the health benefits that come with drinking black coffee daily.
Boosts Energy Levels
There's no denying that drinking coffee will give you a boost of energy. I think this is one of the main reasons why people drink coffee. That's only because you don't understand the other benefits coffee has to offer, but don't worry we will get there.
Coffee provides a stimulant called caffeine and circulates this into the bloodstream. The caffeine then travels to your brain. Just after this happens, surprisingly the norepinephrine and dopamine in your body increases which leads to heightened neurons. To put it simply, it will improve your memory, mood, energy levels and even your reaction times.
Increases metabolism by 11%.
Weirdly enough, coffee is a good way to lose weight. Awesome for anyone wanting to lose a few pounds but doesn't have the time to be active. If you're the type of person who loves to buy supplements for the gym, its good for you to know that in nearly all fat burning supplements, caffeine is found in them. This is not me suggesting to dump all supplements and down as much coffee as possible. Working out and caffeine come hand in hand, you won't lose a ton of weight without working out.
Coffee provides key nutrients
Coffee beans supply a list of antioxidants and vitamins.
One cup of black coffee has the following:
Vitamin B2 - Riboflavin
Vitamin B5 - Pantothenic acid

You could potentially be worse off! For black coffee, however, there have been studies that prove that drinking black coffee reduces the risk of diabetes by 7%. This is for each cup of coffee you drink by the way so, if you have 2 a day that's 14%.
