I don’t know about you, but I’m about to put the kettle on. I’m about to make myself a coffee, thanks for asking. It’ll be my second cup of the day, but before you judge me find out about all the amazing benefits behind the dark brew first, because there are many…

There are many health benefits to coffee which might surprise you. Here Roast Master (best job title ever!), Matt Wade, from Coffee Planet – the UAE’s freshest home grown coffee brand – reveals all… 

It helps burn fat and improve physical performance

Caffeine is one of the few natural substances, which is proven to help burn fat, as it stimulates the nervous system to send signals to your fat cells, breaking down body fat, as well as boosting your metabolic rate. It will also increase your adrenaline levels, so your body can be fully prepared for tough exercise regimes.

It fuels your energy

Caffeine increases a neuronal firing in your brain by releasing dopamine and norepinephrine, this stimulates your brain so you can lock down your concentration on the activity in hand. It is also said to strengthen your memory, boost your energy levels and improve your reaction times.

It contains essential nutrients

There are several essential nutrients that your body needs to stay healthy, which can be found in coffee beans, these include potassium, magnesium and niacin. These nutrients will improve the oxygen flow around your body, enzyme reaction, support your nervous system and maintain the acid-alkaline balance in your body.

It helps to protect the liver

Coffee has great protective properties from diseases such as cirrhosis. It carefully reduces certain enzymes in the body, which can cause inflammation and damage to the liver.

It can help to defeat diabetes

Coffee can also reduce the risk of contracting type 2 diabetes, as coffee beans are packed with antioxidants that help boost your body’s sensitivity to insulin as well as regulating your blood sugar levels.

Inhale its aromas to release your stress

Caffeine helps activate neurotransmitters in our brain that controls our mood. We know stress caused from sleep deprivation is directly linked to brain proteins, whereas coffee aromas can help activate these proteins, which in turn reduces stress levels.

Right, I’m off to the kitchen…
