Coffee, the miracle drink that has you ready for a crucial presentation to your boss just three minutes after waking up. Whether for its miracles or its variety of fantastic flavors, coffee is one of the world's most popular beverages. We at Rosso caffe love coffee and have dedicated ourselves to making sure you have access to the best possible coffee anywhere, anytime.
But did you know that coffee is perfect for you, beyond its enthralling taste and keeping you wired? According to research by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and other scientists, coffee contains several useful nutrients, including riboflavin (vitamin B-2), niacin (vitamin B-3), magnesium, potassium, as well as antioxidants.
1. Coffee can improve energy levels and mental focus
That is because coffee contains a stimulant called caffeine, which blocks the inhibitory neurotransmitter adenosine in the brain, leading to enhanced firing of neurons and improving various aspects of brain function — including memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels and reaction times.
That explains why you feel pumped up every time you drink a cup of our fantastic coffee.
2. Coffee can help you burn fat and reduce calorie intake
Want to lose some pounds? The caffeine in coffee is also found in almost every commercial fat-burning supplement as it is one of the few natural substances proven to aid fat burning.
Several studies show that caffeine can boost your metabolic rate by 3–11%. Other studies indicate that caffeine can increase fat burning by 10% in obese individuals and 29% in lean people.
Furthermore, regular black coffee - without milk or cream - is low in calories, and a typical cup of black coffee only contains around two calories, which helps reduce calorie intake.
3. Coffee can also enhance physical performance
Have a workout coming up? Caffeine increases the levels of the fight-or-flight hormone, adrenaline, in your blood. That prepares your body for intense physical exertion.
Caffeine also breaks down body fat, making free fatty acids available as fuel. Resultantly, caffeine can improve physical performance by 11–12%, on average. So next time you're heading to the gym, grab yourself a cup first.
4. Coffee may also help protect against Parkinson’s and diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a significant health problem characterized by elevated blood sugar levels caused by insulin resistance or reduced secrete insulin.
Studies observe that people who drink the most coffee have a 23–50% lower risk of getting this disease. One study showed a reduction as high as 67%. Coffee may also help protect against Parkinson's disease, a neurodegenerative condition with no known cure. One team concluded that men who drink over four cups of coffee per day might have a fivefold lower risk of Parkinson's than those who do not.
5. Coffee may protect you from liver cancer and other liver diseases.
Italian researchers found that coffee consumption lowers the risk of liver cancer by around 40%. Some of the results suggest that people who drink three cups per day might have a 50% lower chance.
Several common diseases primarily affect the liver, including hepatitis, fatty liver disease and many others. That leads to cirrhosis, in which your liver is mostly replaced by scar tissue.
And researchers have found that coffee may protect against cirrhosis — with people who drink four or more cups per day having up to an 80% lower risk. Now you know how Rosso Caffe saves lives!
