5 Surpising reasons to drink more coffee

It’s no surprise that coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. It’s yummy and it’s the perfect way to kickstart your day.

1. Coffee can help you live longer

Great news — your favorite beverage can extend your life! Two studies published in 2017 found that people who drink more coffee — including decaf coffee — had a lower chance of early death than those who avoided it.

2. Coffee can make you happy

Caffeine causes a surge in the number of neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine, which leads to enhanced firing of neurons in the brain and give you a spring in your step.

3. Coffee can help burn fat

Coffee can aid in weight loss as research has shown that caffeine can boost your metabolic rate by up to 11%.

4.Coffee aids digestion

After consuming a cup of coffee, you might find yourself running to the restroom. That’s because the caffeine in coffee can activate contractions in your colon and intestinal muscles and can also lead to a rise in gastrin — a hormone that makes the colon more active. Drinking coffee can also reduce the risk of gallstones or gallbladder disease, vital for maintaining a healthy digestive system.

5. Coffee boosts libido

Your relationship will thank you for drinking loads of coffee as caffeine will not only keep you awake but it also works as a stimulant.
