It fuels our bakers from early mornings to late nights of baking, piping, whipping and filling.
Good news! The case may be stronger than ever. Study after study indicates you could be getting more from your favourite morning beverage than you thought. Caffeine is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Coffee, but coffee also contains antioxidants and other active substances that may reduce internal inflammation and protects against disease, says nutrition experts from John Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Your brew gives you benefits beyond an energy boost. Here are the top ways coffee can positively impact your health:
Coffee can help boost your physical performance.
Have a cup of black coffee roughly an hour before your workout and your performance can improve by 11-12%. Caffeine increases adrenaline levels in your blood which helps you prepare for physical activities.
Coffee may help your lose weight.
Coffee contains magnesium and potassium, which helps the human body use insulin, regulating blood sugar levels and reducing your craving for sugary treats and snacks.
Coffee helps you stay alert.
Moderate caffeine intake: 1-6 cups a day, helps you focus and improves your mental alertness (6 cups are a bit much don’t you think) [based on: Harvard T.H Chan nutrition source> food features> coffee]
Improves mood and mental health.
Coffee contains naturally occurring polyphenols in caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee which can act as antioxidants reducing damaging-oxidative stress and inflammation cells. It may have neurological benefits in some people and can act as an antidepressant.
You could live longer.
Drinking moderate amount of coffee can lower the risks of early death. Caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee contains many health benefits as well as bioactive compounds that may be responsible for preventing disease development.
