A cup a day keeps the doc away
We can’t encourage the consumption of 15 cups of coffee a day (you know, like the average corporate worker drinks to keep smiling at his next obnoxious client). We can, however, tell you that caffeine can help prevent some illnesses, both physical and mental. For example, it can lower the risk of kidney stones, Parkinson’s, strokes, and more.
Flex your memory muscle
Caffeine helps you focus, that’s nothing new. But did you know it also helps you remember what you focused on? Well, it does. Studies have shown that caffeine consumption improves your memory. In fact, long-term consumption of coffee can help students better retain what they learn in school. The same goes for employees and their workplaces. This unbelievable bean extract may even lower the risk of Alzheimer’s!
Don’t have too much
After reading all the benefits of caffeine, skipping water for coffee altogether might sound like a good idea. It’s not. Sure, it affects our mood, our concentration, and our ability to form coherent sentences at the ungodly hour of 7 am, but having too much of it can be harmful. Overstimulating your brain with caffeine will do more damage than good and cause disorientation, confusion, and overall lack of focus. Drink responsibly!
No sleep for you
One of the things that make coffee so great as a morning beverage is that it wakes you up. This also means you shouldn’t have it too late during the day or you can kiss your night sleep goodbye. Sleep deprivation has its own set of negative side effects you don’t want to experience; depression, anxiety, and irritability are just the tip of the iceberg.
