The benefits of drinking coffee
In fact, coffee generally in addition to the refreshing effect, but also to help lose weight, improve exercise performance and other functions, the following is a list of 10 benefits of drinking coffee.

1. Refresh your mind
I believe that many people regard coffee as a refreshing drink, and indeed, the caffeine contained in coffee can block adenosine (Adenosine), which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that can promote sleep. In addition, caffeine also boosts adrenaline and dopamine, producing a refreshing effect.

2. Burn fat
Many studies have shown that caffeine can increase the metabolic rate, but it is recommended to consume only black coffee, if you add creamer, sugar and milk, the calories will increase, but it is not conducive to fat burning and weight loss.

3. Source of antioxidants
For Taiwanese who now have a greatly westernized diet, many people may not eat much vegetables and fruits in a day, resulting in a reduction in antioxidant intake, and coffee is the most suitable source for antioxidants in addition to vegetables and fruits.

In addition, coffee can also help cells fight free radical attacks, and the chlorogenic acid and Caffeic acid contained in coffee can eliminate free radicals.

4. Helps burn fat, improve endurance and athletic performance
Caffeine not only increases the secretion of adrenaline, but also helps burn fat, producing free fatty acids that serve as fuel for physical activity. Research by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) also pointed out that caffeine can increase strength and endurance when exercising, and it is no wonder that many people will have a cup of coffee before going to the gym.

5. Prevent diabetes
The main cause of Type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance, or a disease caused by reduced insulin secretion. Drinking coffee can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In addition, the chlorogenic acid contained in coffee can reduce the speed of glucose entering the bloodstream and avoid the development of insulin resistance.

6. Dementia can be prevented
Dementia is a general term for all dementia-related diseases, and Alzheimer's disease is one of them, commonly known as dementia, which usually occurs in people over the age of 65. Since there is no cure, in general, symptoms can only be prevented through regular exercise and a healthy diet, and people with coffee drinking habits have a 65% lower chance of getting Alzheimer's disease than others.

7) Preventable Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's, like Alzheimer's, is a neurodegenerative disease and is equally incurable. People who have the habit of drinking coffee have a reduced chance of getting Parkinson's because the effect comes from caffeine, and if you drink decaffeinated coffee, it has no effect.

8. Reduce the chance of stroke
People who usually drink coffee, the increase in blood pressure is actually very small, or even almost no effect, but it is still recommended that people who have symptoms of high blood pressure (Hypertension) can only drink coffee in moderation. And there are no studies that show that caffeine increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, and caffeine reduces the chance of stroke.
