Five of our favorite "excuses" to have another cup of coffee
1 - Stimulate your workout
Caffeine is a stimulate that not only raises your metabolic rate, but it can help reduce the onset of muscle pain. A two strike punch to help you train harder next time you hit the gym.
2 - Daily dose of antioxidants
Often overshadowed by tea, coffee is also packed with antioxidants. While the actual concentration will depend on the type of coffee as well as the roasting process it went through, either coffee or tea is a fine choice to get your antioxidant on.
3 - Increase your brain power
If only everything in life was this easy. After drinking a cup of your favorite joe, you'll experience an increase in neural activity as well as the release dopamine and norepinephrine. So you'll think faster and feel happier. There is also a positive correlation between neuron activity and positive mood. A double whammy from our friend coffee.
4 - Reduce the risk of Alzhemier's
Coffee is good for long run mental health. Not only is there that amazing temporary boost in mental powers, but coffee has also been shown to reduce the onset of Parkinson's and Alzhemier's Diseases
5 - Help save your liver
While coffee might not be the friendliest beverage for your stomach, it's great for liver health. We think it's no coincidence that National Coffee Day is the day after National Beer Day.
