However, despite its popularity, coffee has always been viewed as a health hazard. It is usually ranked up there with alcohol and cigarette as a health risk. But, contrary to popular belief, coffee may carry some health benefits.  

What are the health benefits of drinking coffee?

Coffee increases energy levels

1. Coffee increases energy levels.

One of the known benefits of coffee is that it increases energy levels. The caffeine content is a stimulant in the central nervous system. After drinking coffee, caffeine is absorbed into the body and travels up to your brain. As a result, it “wakes up” a person who drinks it. This is why most people depend on coffee in the morning to get them started and create a positive mood throughout the day.

Coffee improves mental alertness

2. Coffee improves mental alertness.

Intake of coffee also improves mental alertness for a short period of time. As well as memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction times and general mental function. Studies have shown that moderate intake of caffeine can improve focus and concentration to as much as 3 hours. It is therefore suggested for work that requires quick response time, information analysis, and even proofreading.  

It is even recommended to drink a cup of coffee before going to the gym or exercising. Besides increasing mental alertness and energy levels, it also increases epinephrine or adrenaline. This hormone prepares your body for intense physical exertion.

Coffee lowers the risk of type II diabetes

 3. Coffee lowers the risk of type II diabetes.

Coffee contains high amounts of antioxidants
