Don't Fear Coffee

Coffee isn’t just delicious, warm and energizing, it is also be good for you, as long as you do not suffer from any cardiac issues. Recommended intake: 1-2 eight-ounce glasses of caffeinated coffee per day – without sugar or cream. (Always use almond milk, low fat/non fat milk, and agave nectar syrup if you like your coffee a little sweet)

In recent years and decades, scientists have studied the effects of coffee on various aspects of health and their results have been nothing short of amazing.

Caffeine, partly due to its stimulant effect on the central nervous system, raises both your metabolism and increases the oxidation of fatty acids. Caffeine also improves athletic performance by several mechanisms, including by mobilizing fatty acids from fat tissues.

Coffee also protects your brain. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder in the world and a leading cause of dementia. In prospective studies, coffee drinkers have shown to have up to 60% lower risk of obtaining Alzheimer’s and/or dementia.

Parkinson’s is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, which is the cause of loss of dopamine-generating neurons in the brain. Coffee lowers your risk of Parkinson’s by 32-60%.

Alternatively, caffeinated green teas share the same effects as those in coffee, in case you prefer tea.
