Coffee is addictive. Its scent, taste, and texture combine to give anyone who drink it a kick. It also makes you feel good.
But the real star here is caffeine. Throughout the years, studies have shown that this chemical benefits the mind and body, just as we have expected.
Coffee seems to be the perfect beverage for a lot of people. And in the health and wellness aspect, it does not disappoint. Instead, it continues to surprise us.
Here are four good uses of coffee, as well caffeine, that will get you addicted to it even more:
Drinking coffee can help improve mental alertness and clarity. It can also counteract drowsiness, keeping your mind awake, after getting deprived of sleep.
According to WebMD, caffeine can go hand-in-hand with glucose to boost mental performance. Combined with energy drink, coffee can boost your brain's performance more than either beverage alone can.
So whether you are pulling an all-nighter or getting through Monday, your desire to grab a cuppa is now backed by science. Why not prepare yourself some drip coffee using grounds from the highlands of Southeast Asia?
Consuming coffee on a regular basis can help reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease both in men and women. The amount producing the greatest impact on risk for men is three to four cups daily. Meanwhile, for women, the ideal intake is one to two cups daily to yield results.
Caffeine can also prevent gallstones. Four or more cups of coffee can significantly lower the risk. Another disease of note is type 2 diabetes.
There's a lesser chance of developing it if you drink coffee every day. Although the required amount differs from one group of population to another:
* For Americans, six or more cups daily
* For Europeans, five to six cups daily
* For Japanese, three or more cups daily
Coffee grounds can also be used as facial or full-body scrub. This should now make you think twice when you brew a pot. Before you throw away your used coffee grounds, why not mix them with a few drops of coconut oil and use the scrub in your bath?
Coffee has a cleansing and refreshing effect on your skin. It leaves your skin feeling smooth and supple. It also absorbs dirt and toxins from the surface. Just don't leave it on for too long as long exposure to the grounds can give you rashes.
You will savor drinking coffee more if you know that discarded grounds are not entirely useless. You can use them to fertilize the soil for your succulents.
Used coffee grounds have neutral pH so you can use them on your soil.
Your love for coffee is not just going to push you toward healthy living. It will also make you conscious of your consumption behavior.
Nothing will go to waste when you prepare your morning cup. What a way to start the day.
