Coffee and Its Benefits

Eidolonai December 1, 2017

Consumed in moderate quantity (2-3 cups daily), coffee may have good effects on our health. Used for the first time in the monasteries of Ethiopia at the beginning of Christianity, to reduce fatigue during long religious ceremonies, coffee is now one of the most consumed products that contain caffeine, along with soft drinks and tea.

Full of energy
The main effect of coffee, besides great taste, is that it will refresh you early in the morning or at any time during the day. Also, it will increase your concentration capacity and stimulate memory on short term. Caffeine is responsible for these effects which will be active for about two hours. However it is not proper to preserve your energy by drinking coffee all-day long, because the body will build more adenosine receptors, which produces the effect of drowsiness.

A better memory
A test conducted in the U.S. shows that, after absorbing 100 milligrams of caffeine (that is one or two cups of coffee), those involved were able to solve different exercises with increased speed and superior accuracy.

Source of antioxidants
Antioxidants are neutralizing free radicals, meaning that protect us against atherosclerosis and heart attack. It is assumed that action is good in some forms of cancer. However, the theory is still under study.

Help us to fight against diabetes
Regular coffee consumption, up to six small cups a day, reduces risk of diabetes type II. This is the conclusion reached by Frank Hu and Rob Nav Dam of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston.

Less cholesterol and coffee filter
Diterpenes, those hydrocarbons which increase cholesterol levels, are much more present in Turkish and espresso coffee compared with filter coffee. Among the Finnish population, big coffee drinkers, cholesterol in the blood decreased significantly, given that an increasing number of people prefer the filter coffee. A cup of coffee in the filter contains an average of 80 milligrams of caffeine.

While drinking your coffee do not forget to turn on your air conditioner for better comfort. Feel free to visit our portable air conditioning units site to find out more details and read reviews about these products. They are the perfect solution for the hot summer season.
