There are many people who will tell you not to have a lot of coffee. While that is true to some extent, it’s not the worst thing on the planet. In fact, it’s pretty good for you if it’s consumed in limits. A lot of us cannot function without our first cup of coffee in the morning and there’s a reason why our body needs and wants that dose of caffeine every day. Mostly so that we can tolerate people and situations at the start of the day, but also because it’s actually good for the body. And since today is International Coffee Day, we thought we’d give you a few reasons to drink coffee! Here they are:

1. Boosts Energy Levels

Coffee is known to boost energy levels in the body. The caffeine in it disseminates through the blood to the brain that increases dopamine giving you a kick of energy that can be a good start to the day.

2. Improves Stamina & Metabolism

Caffeine stimulates your nervous system that helps in improving your stamina.

3. Helps Burn Fat

6. Helps Fight Depression

It is said that a cup of coffee can help you feel better. As caffeine increases the dopamine in the brain, it immediately lifts up your mood.

7. Helps Improve Memory

We already know that coffee makes us alert and that’s because caffeine boosts the brain and stimulates it to think and remember better. So, remember that the next time you have an exam or a very important meeting or presentation. Make sure to have a cuppa before you begin.

8. Could Help Reduce Risk Of Diabetes

Millions all over the world suffer from type 2 diabetes and studies have shown that people who drink coffee regularly have a 23–50% lower risk of getting diabetes.

Now, we’re not saying you should go buck and drink litres and litres every day, but yeah, you can definitely drink a cup daily.
