Coffee is one of the most valuable commodities in the world, if not already the most important to-day. Originally gaining popularity in the west as the preferred drink of kings and sultans, coffee is a drink used to help boost performance and alertness. It has also been a connector of sorts, bringing together people of all shapes, sizes, and reasons.
An interesting scientific fact, it has a similar chemical molecule makeup to adenosine, the fatigue molecule that your body produces. However, instead of adenosine bonding to tired cells, the caffeine in coffee is recognized by the cells and an entirely new chemical reaction occurs. The body ignores the adenosine and in a panic reaction, the brain releases adrenaline into the blood stream, creating a feeling of alertness and excitement that makes coffee a popular choice in overcoming fatigue.
Some of the listed benefits of drinking coffee have been linked decreasing your chances of heart disease, type-2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. There are various sources of information, and studies on the effect that “black gold” has on our bodies natural chemistry, all of which making it an interesting topic of discussion among some of the most brilliant minds in the world. Not to mention, it also tastes magnificent, motivating us to go grab another cup as we speak.
For you busy bees out there, here are 3 scientific reasons why you need to consider coffee as your go to drink for just about anything:
- It makes you more alert, and not how you think. It doesn’t actually have the effect of boosting energy in your body, as mentioned earlier it actually produces a similar chemical in your body (adenosine) which gets absorbed by the cells in your body. This tricks the brain into thinking that you have produced a sufficient amount of it, and then stops producing this chemical on its own. See study here.
- It gets the creative juices flowing, as an alert mind helps with out-of-the-box thinking. When you become tired, your mind will day-dream or doze off, inhibiting our ability to think creatively, and sharply. See study here.
- You can learn things faster with only mg of caffeine, which prods the brain to identify words and phrases more quickly. This also gives you better short-term memory and an increased ability of problem solving. See study here.
