Coffee is the most popular drink in the world, with deep historical roots and traditions attached to it. Here are some very good reasons to love and drink coffee.
This is probably the main reason why we drink coffee. Caffeine, the stimulant in coffee, improves alertness and concentration, but its effect is especially great among people who do not get enough sleep.
Improves Our Mood
Studies have found that caffeine improves our mood. People report feeling happy and energized after consuming caffeine.
Improves Athletic Performance
Caffeine is known to improve performance in a variety of types of aerobic exercise—such as running, ball games, and swimming.
Acts as a Pain Killer
Caffeine can relieve pain, especially headaches. While we feel a headache, the blood vessels in the brain dilate, and caffeine causes the blood vessels to constrict. That is why many painkillers also contain caffeine.
Helps Bowel Activity
If after drinking coffee you feel the need to visit the bathroom, it is not by chance. Caffeine promotes the contraction of the intestinal muscles and thus affects intestinal motility.
