COFFEE. it’s like a drug. My drug(aside from chocolates which i mentioned in my previous blog). Some people won’t last a day without a cup or two. I, myself begin my day with a cup of coffee with cream. I feel headaches whenever I skip a cup of it. Very addictive, indeed. well here are some facts about coffee regarding on how it works on our body:

START DRINKING YOUR COFFEE AT 9am

As i have said, the first thing I do every morning is to grab my cup and make a coffee. It’s my 6 am daily habit. Since coffee is like an energy booster, we don’t really need to drink it as early as 6 am. Our body normally produces cortisol, a kind of hormone that works like a coffee, it keeps us alert and awake after being asleep. Cortisol is produced at a higher level during daytime. So, if you don’t want to waste the effect of caffeine in your system, wait till your cortisol rate drops. And it’s usually 9 am.

IT MAKES YOU SEXY:P

Well, sorry i’m exaggerating. But take note, a cup of BLACK coffee only contains 2 calories(too bad i’m not fond of black coffee). And here’s a thing, coffee can actually helps you burn fat! Caffeine is a psychoactive substance and it helps us become more active doing physical activities. Also, caffeine and other substances found in our coffee helps metabolize fats from fat tissues and it increases metabolism. Now, that’s sexy!

ANTIOXIDANT

That’s a common fact and it’s proven. We need an antioxidant to kill those free radicals we get from eating non healthy foods. Thus, it lowers the risk of getting cancer and other serious diseases.

VITAMINS

Coffee contains riboflavin, vitamin B5, Manganese and potasium, and many more! (no need to explain further)

PREVENTS DISEASES

Coffee prevents the drinkers from having Alzheimer’s diseases which also leads to dementia(oh, i remember the “notebook” of Nicholas Sparks. Awesome story). It also helps us to do more and improve our physical performance by helping our body produce more adrenaline.

Well, those are some benefits we get by drinking coffee. If you expect me to write the Risks and Disadvantages of drinking coffee, it’s not gonna happen! HAHA. Search it on Google, I don’t want to know anyway:P
