Modern people often drink a cup of coffee because of work or other reasons. Coffee helps to refresh and help people work more efficiently.
Coffee mainly has the following benefits:
1. Helps lose weight
With muscle exercise, caffeine can accelerate the breakdown of fat and convert excess fatty acids into heat for consumption. If there is no exercise in conjunction with it, the excess fatty acids flow back through the bloodstream and re-accumulate fat. Although coffee itself has calories, not many, the main calories are the creamer and sugar you add when you drink coffee. Instead, a cup of steaming coffee can promote blood circulation, accelerate the consumption of calories in the body, and effectively break down fat.
Coffee contains 4 times more antioxidants than tea, which is more resistant to cardiovascular disease, and the coffee itself also conforms to the principle of antioxidants, with dark color and bitter taste. The antioxidants in coffee vary according to the type of coffee and the way it is brewed. For example, Americano has the least amount of antioxidants, while espresso has the most.
3. Improve dry eyes
Coffee drinkers are significantly less likely to suffer from the dry eye than non-coffee drinkers. This is mainly related to the purine component in coffee (purine-containing eye drops, which stimulate the glands to secrete fluid, have a certain protective effect on the eyes).
This is certainly good news for coffee drinkers, but be aware that coffee itself has a diuretic effect, even though some of its ingredients are protective, but for those who already suffer from dry eye, and people who take any medicine containing diuretic ingredients must avoid taking caffeinated beverages, so as not to exacerbate the loss of water in the body.
But some people don't like the bitter taste of coffee, so you can try snow top coffee, the sweetness of sugar buffers the bitterness of coffee, bringing a richer taste, snow top coffee is also very simple to make, mix ice cubes and pure milk Pour into the container, pour the coffee powder and white sugar into the container. (Personal preference is how much white sugar you want to put in), beat them with a hand-held cooking stick, pour them into a cup after mixing well, and put them in the refrigerator for later use.
Pour 15g of whipped cream and white sugar into a bowl and beat evenly. Put the whipped cream into a piping bag for later use. Squeeze cream on top, drizzle with chocolate sauce and sprinkle with chopped peanuts and honey beans. A cup of snow top coffee is ready.
However, coffee should be consumed in moderation. Studies have shown that consuming large amounts of caffeine can cause some short-term adverse effects, including headaches, anxiety, tremors, and insomnia. Second, caffeine has also been linked to generalized anxiety disorder and substance use disorder in the long run, but scientists aren't yet sure if there's a causal link.
This phenomenon was only discovered through clinical statistics. In addition, a small number of individuals who drink coffee for a long time have developed severe neurological or cardiac signs (arrhythmia, ischemia, seizures, and hallucinations).
Finally, long-term heavy coffee consumption may be associated with lower bone mineral density and an increased risk of fractures in women, especially those with low calcium intake.
