6 good reasons to drink coffee

by Marie-Sarah Published on December 10, 2015

We live in such an addictive society. Between cigarettes, alcohol, drugs and even porn, it’s hard not to have at least one vice these days. Fortunately, there’s one addiction that you don’t have to kick because it turns out that it’s good for you: coffee!

It helps burn fat
The caffeine found in coffee helps burn fat naturally, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given that it’s found in virtually every weight loss supplement on the market!

It stimulates your brain
By blocking chemical receptors known as adenosine receptors, caffeine increases dopamine and noradrenalin levels in the brain. In laymen’s terms, drinking coffee increases your overall concentration, creativity, and cognition!

It contains essential nutrients
Every cup of coffee contains such essential nutrients as riboflavin, pantothenic acid, manganese, potassium, magnesium and niacin!

It’s loaded with antioxidants
Coffee seems to be where most westerners get their antioxidants, which are essential in eliminating free radicals. While the oxidative stress that creates free radicals is a natural process, it also contributes to the development of various diseases, so anything that can slow this process, like consuming plenty of antioxidants, is a good thing!

It can help you live longer
Studies have shown that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of developing ageing-related diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, as well as two types of cancer: liver cancer and colorectal cancer.

It makes you happier
As mentioned, drinking coffee increases dopamine levels in the brain, which not only boosts concentration but produces a natural “high” that’s way healthier than cocaine!
