Coffee acts as the glue that keeps everything together on some days (or most days?). It awakens you from a slumber in the morning, gives you a jolt in the middle of the afternoon, and keeps you on the go throughout the day. But hold your breath: is it healthy for you?
You can exhale. As it turns out, coffee packs some surprising health benefits. "There aren't a lot of downsides to drinking moderate amounts of coffee — and in fact, it can have positive effects on your health," says registered dietitian Andrea Dunn, RD.
While you might think that coffee’s primary benefit is to perk you up in the morning, there is a lot more to it than just that. We are giving you 5 more reasons to love coffee:
Boosts energy levels
Coffee can aid in fighting fatigue and boosting energy levels. This is because coffee is rich in the stimulant known as caffeine, the world's most widely used psychoactive substance.
"Caffeine may increase your energy levels when consumed in moderation as it boosts your metabolic rate and the release of adrenaline, the hormone responsible for energy release in the brain," explains Daniel Boyer, MD, a researcher at the Farr Institute in West Des Moines, Iowa.
Also, as Dr Boyer adds, "it also helps against tiredness by temporarily inhibiting the action of adenosine, a stimulant of the central nervous system that inhibits neuronal activity, causing you to feel fatigued." Dopamine, the brain's feel-good chemical, is also boosted by caffeinated coffee. Yes, the side effects of coffee use may improve the likelihood of happiness.
Numerous human-controlled experiments indicate that coffee enhances numerous aspects of brain function. This encompasses one's memory, mood, alertness, energy levels, response speeds, and overall cognitive function. According to one research, consuming caffeine before and during a game of golf boosted performance, raised subjective energy levels, and decreased sensations of exhaustion.
The Robusta plant contains more natural caffeine, in which Robusta has a 2.7% caffeine content, whereas Arabica generally has 1.5%. Therefore, consuming Min Kaffe, which is newly enhanced with premium Robusta coffee powder, may help you improve your energy levels.
Reduces body fat and promotes a healthy weight
Did you realize that practically every fat-burning product on the market contains caffeine? There's a valid explanation for it... Caffeine is one of the few natural substances that have been shown to help in fat loss.
"Caffeine may help promote a healthy weight, lowering the risk of some illnesses associated with being overweight, such as heart disease, by promoting gut health and modifying fat storage," Dr Boyer explains. And the research supports this conclusion.
Multiple studies demonstrate that caffeine may increase the metabolic rate by 3 to 11%, particularly when paired with exercise.
Additionally, it increases the release of oxidative free fatty acid in the bloodstream, which facilitates fat conversion into energy.
Other research indicates that caffeine may boost fat oxidation by up to 10% in obese people and 29% in lean individuals. However, long-term coffee drinkers may diminish these benefits with time.
Moreover, there is evidence that Robusta Coffee may aid in weight loss. It is a non-stimulant green coffee bean that has been the subject of scientific study. Now you know why we selected this as the critical ingredient for Min Kaffe. Use it with a healthy diet and regular exercise to help you lose weight!
Increases physical activity levels
Caffeine stimulates the neurological system, prompting it to send signals to fat cells to facilitate fat breakdown. However, caffeine also raises the amount of Epinephrine (Adrenaline) in the blood. This is the "fight or flight" hormone that prepares the body for strong physical activity. Caffeine causes fat cells to break down body fat, releasing free fatty acids into the bloodstream for use as fuel.
Caffeine's ability to boost physical performance by an average of 11 to 12% is not unexpected, given its effects. Therefore, it's recommended to have a strong cup of coffee 30 minutes before going to the gym.
In public health research, female participants who had 1–2 cups of coffee per day were 17% more likely to meet their physical activity goals than those who consumed less than one cup per day.
With the aid of Min Kaffe with enhanced Robusta Coffee powder, which contains more caffeine, your physical activity levels could be increased!
Fight depression and make you happier
A cup of coffee a day may help reduce the risk of depression, so coffee drinkers may seem to be in higher spirits.
Due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidative qualities, coffee may have a favorable effect on mental health since it contains over 1,000 bioactive compounds, including caffeine. Caffeine is a psychostimulant that may enhance alertness and motivation, possibly alleviating certain depressive symptoms.
Caffeine may also inhibit adenosine receptors in the central nervous system, preventing them from inducing a cellular reaction that results in a depressed, exhausted mood. Caffeine increases the quantity of dopamine that binds to dopamine receptors in the forebrain by binding to but not activating these adenosine receptors. In essence, coffee increases the effectiveness of the dopamine chemical in the brain and is highly correlated with a reduced risk of depression.
One meta-analysis of seven studies found that each daily cup of coffee taken was associated with an 8% reduction in the risk of depression. In addition, one research including more than 200,000 individuals, revealed that coffee consumption was associated with a decreased risk of death by suicide.
Min Kaffe not only satisfies your craving for coffee but is also added with exclusive Sweetality® sweetener to deliver an enjoyable, exquisite coffee experience that helps revitalize tired minds and relieve tension!
Boosts skin health and fights skin problems
Coffee is also beneficial for the skin. Coffee beans contain caffeine and polyphenols such as chlorogenic acids (CGA), which may have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-ageing benefits.
Applying liquid coffee to the skin or using powdered coffee as a scrub may improve skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne. Consumption of coffee is also connected with decreased basal cell carcinoma, a common form of skin cancer.
