Needing a reason to head for the coffee machine again?
Here’s our top five reasons/excuses – so you’re prepared in case anyone confronts you or happens to ask why you’re on your fifth cup before 11am..
It’s boosting my creativity! – and brain power, and attention span! Coffee is proven to block adenosine (a substance your body produces that is responsible for making you feel sleepy) so it is excellent at making you feel more awake and focused as well as ramping up your brain’s energy levels and creativity. A coffee-fuelled brain also works more efficiently to help you learn faster and retain information better!
It’s great for my health… – The health benefits of coffee are seemingly endless! Reducing the risk of Parkinsons, Type 2 Diabetes, Alzheimers, Dementia, and even some forms of cancer …as well as containing many essential nutrients! Read our blog post about the health benefits of coffee.
It’s for your safety! – Feeling grumpy, irritated or depressed? Coffee can make you happy, and reduces the risk of depression! In a Harvard study released in 2011, women who drank 4 or more cups of coffee a day had a 20% lower risk of getting depression! Another study with 208,424 individuals found that those who drank 4 or more cups a day were 53% less likely to commit suicide!
It’s helping me live longer! Not only can caffeine help prevent age-related memory decline, it can also apparently boost longevity! A 2012 study of over 400,000 individuals between the ages of 50-71 showed that drinking 3-5 cups of coffee was associated with living a longer life. This is mostly due to the health benefits (see above) preventing an early death from a number of causes.
It’s just tastes so good…have a cup yourself? – The obvious answer! There’s something about the sight, smell and taste of a cup of freshly ground coffee that just can’t be beaten!
