Some people think that too much of a good thing can be bad for you and this tends to be true. Coffee is one of those substances where drinking to excess can be very bad for your health in fact it has been estimated that 118 coffees is enough to kill the average 75kg person. But as the saying goes, all things in moderation.
Coffee has a lot of health benefits such as some of the following:
Coffee is known to increase energy levels which of course makes people feel less tired. This is because of the caffeine which funnily enough is the most heavily consumed psychoactive substance on the planet. Caffeine once consumed is then absorbed into ones bloodstream which allows it then to travel to the brain where all the magic takes place. The caffeine blocks a neurotransmitter known as Adenosine. This block in neurotransmitter leads to a stimulant effect which in course improves energy levels, various brain function and mood.
Coffee is also a great fat burner. There is caffeine in almost every fat burning supplement that you can buy. This is because caffeine is one of the few natural substances that has been proven to aid in fat burning. In fact it has been shown to increase ones body metabolic rate by anywhere from 3-11% which is huge.
Caffeine is also fantastic in helping improve ones physical performance. It can actually stimulate the nervous system which makes your brain send a signal to start breaking down fat cells. Not only this but it also increases Epinephrine in your blood stream which triggers the fight or flight response that prepares the body for physical exertion of some sort. Given this response it is easy to see why the average human can trigger a 11-12% performance increase by the consumption of caffeine a half hour before vigorous exercise.
Coffee is becoming even more healthy with the blending of other substances such as Ganoderma. Ganoderma is a almost magical mushroom that has many healing benefits itself and when combined with the positive aspects of regular coffee you almost get some type of super coffee. Ganoderma coffee extract is a very potent substance indeed and is becoming more and more popular around the world as it slowly reaches out from it’s mystical Asian roots.
