Therefore, it is very important to examine coffee consumption closely. Because knowing the benefits and harms of the coffee can change your preferences.
I also get a lot of questions about coffee consumption from my followers who are sportive and are trying to live healthily.
I think it’s the time for you to get all the details about coffee.
In this article, I will answer a lot of questions about the benefits and harms of the coffee, and all about coffee.
If you’re ready let’s start!
Benefits of Coffee
I’ll start with the good news first. Because I do not want to disappoint you.
I’ll leave out some of the things that could not be proven by research, I will list the benefits of coffee below.
Of course, all the benefits I have mentioned are based on scientific research.
So I will not spend your time like “news sources” that mislead you.
Reduces type 2 diabetes risk
Nowadays a vast majority of the people is fed badly. The result is increased weight averages and insulin resistance.
So there are now more type-2 diabetics than in the past years.
Drinking coffee can help to reduce insulin resistance.
While coffee combats with insulin resistance, it also increases blood sugar levels. So you should not go overboard while having coffee.
A meta-analysis (more than 450,000 people reviewed) shows that consuming one cup of coffee a day reduces the risk of type-2 diabetes by 7% (1).
Reduces Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease risk
The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s. Parkinson is in second place after Alzheimer’s disease.
So if you want to protect your mind functions at an older age and want a mentally healthy old age, you should be protected from these diseases.
And there’s still no cure for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. For this reason, the only solution is not to get this sickness.
Coffee can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease by altering the hormonal balance on the brain, accelerating blood flow and cell-protective effects.
Studies show that coffee consumption can prevent Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease by 35-65%. The proportions and variability of the rates are related to the number of people surveyed, ethnicity and risk factors.
But there is certainly a serious potential!
”Meanwhile, the content of “caffeine” in the mechanism of preventing Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease is thought to be important.”
”So I would like to point out that decaf coffee may not protect you from neurological diseases.”
Enables you to be energetic and increase mental strength
Caffeine in coffee is one of the strongest known stimulants. Caffeine, which flows into the blood after coffee consumption, reaches your brain and stimulates the release of adrenaline and neurogranin.
This allows you to act exactly the same as when you are enthusiastic, about something. If you are alert, you feel ready to act and your mind opens.
Adrenaline and noradrenaline activate the “run away or just fight” reflex. This is the inheritance of the struggle for survival that we can often see in nature.
Any danger will make you excited, and if you are excited, your body will be ignited.
The investigations that are being conducted give results that are correct in the way I have mentioned the mechanism. Coffee consumption allows you to be more active and energetic.
İn addition, caffeine increases exercise performance. So coffee consumption features provided,
• The flow of blood (especially microcirculation) acceleration,
• Fatty acids are broken blood flow,
-muscle pain reduce. According to consuming coffee 30 minutes ago before training, will increase performance% 12.3. in addition, I shall list coffee’s other benefits as below:
• As it contains antioxidants, that can help to prevent cell damage and provides long life.
• Helps to protect the liver health by increasing liver blood flow. And also helps to protect cellular development. in addition, coffee consumption shall reduce of getting liver cancer up to 40% up.
• Although very light effect the coffee helps to burn fat.
I’ve shared with you very positive info about coffee benefits. But I’m sorry to say that coffee has harmful potential as well. here I mentioned damages of coffee consumption, you should keep in mind that amount and type of coffee consumption are closely related, therefore, you should not be too protective about coffee disadvantages.
We mentioned that the caffeine in the coffee has stimulating feature.
I want to give a bad detail that I have not mentioned now.
Stimulant substances can cause addiction and the situation also applies to coffee.
If you continue to consume coffee constantly, this stimulating feeling will get increased and you will need to have more coffee to make yourself happy.
”If you do not respond to the addiction and do not consume coffee, you may feel bad, tired and unhappy. This is the worst part of addiction.”
May cause anxiety and panic disorder
Coffee consumption fires your body and your brain. This is safe for many people. But some people are prone to anxiety and panic disorder.
This predisposition responds differently to the effect of your body and mind on ignition. Especially at night and constant coffee consumption can cause anxiety problems.
”In addition, the stimulant effect of coffee causes sleep problems. Sleep disturbance is associated with many mental and chronic physical disorders.”
May raise blood pressure
High blood pressure can cause damage to many organs, especially in the form of the disease. In addition, due to poor living conditions, most of the population suffers from tension sickness.
Coffee consumption, if at all, increases blood pressure. This effect is especially important for people with tension sickness. Because of the already high and drug-controlled tensions, the increase in coffee consumption can cause damage to the body.
For this reason, those with high blood pressure, those who use blood pressure medicine, and those who have had high blood pressure before, should limit the consumption of coffee.
