Why Strong Coffee Is Good For You
Posted on June 21 2022,
While the perfect caffeination process varies depending on personal taste, there's a wide range of surprising benefits linked to drinking strong coffee.
For many people, their morning coffee has the potential to make or break their day. For some, the ritual of “white with two shots” is more so a habit than a requirement. For others, access to a strong coffee immediately after waking up is essential for facing the general public.
Either way, this elixir of life has been powering Australians for generations. As one of the world’s most popular beverages, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there’s also a sizable amount of research conducted on the health benefits of drinking coffee that goes beyond the energy hit.
Five Surprising Health Benefits Of Strong Coffee
For the unfamiliar, caffeine is a stimulant that increases the level of activity in your brain and nervous system. While there are several known mechanisms of action to explain the effects of caffeine, the most prominent is that it reversibly blocks the action of adenosine on its receptors, and consequently prevents the onset of drowsiness induced by adenosine.
Although caffeine can be found in a wide variety of teas, soft drinks, energy drinks and even chocolate, sugar additives are normally thrown in the mix to make the product taste good. However, the exception to this rule is strong coffee, in which many would argue that sugar ruins.
While consuming too much caffeine is never a good thing, just the right amount has the potential to supercharge not just your day, but your health as well. If you’re yet to be converted to the benefits of having a strong coffee in the morning, the below perks may be worthy of your consideration.
Lower Type 2 Diabetes Risk - Providing you go easy on the sweeteners, coffee consumers have a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. This is thought to be due to coffee’s ability to preserve the function of the beta cells in your pancreas, which are responsible for producing insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. In addition, coffee is also full of antioxidants.
Could Support Brain Health - The British Nutrition Foundation found coffee doesn’t just keep you awake, it may literally make you smarter as well. It found that caffeine can improve mood, reaction time, memory, vigilance and general cognitive function, while other research suggests that coffee may help protect against certain neurodegenerative disorders.
Promote Weight Management - A study published by the American Journal Of Physiology found that people who drink coffee can increase fat burning in their body and boost their metabolic rate by up to 30%. This is due to the caffeine found in coffee beans, which stimulates the nervous system into breaking down more fat.
Improves Mental Health - While many of us identify as being a nicer person after a strong coffee, did you know that the magical substance can also reduce the risk of depression? According to one study, each cup of coffee people consumed per day was linked to an 8% lower risk of depression, with that number growing with each cup.
Encourages Heart Health - While too much caffeine has the potential to negatively affect blood pressure levels, research has shown that drinking three to five cups of coffee each day can be tied to a 15% reduced risk of heart disease, a 21% lower risk of suffering a stroke, and is generally associated with a decreased risk of heart failure.
In addition, the benefits of strong coffee isn’t limited to its consumption. Coffee scrubs are natural exfoliants packed full of antioxidants that may help your skin look younger and healthier, which is why they’ve soared in popularity as body scrubs and facial cleansers.
Let’s not forget the all important social and economic benefits of coffee. Without it, there’s a good chance that we’d be grumpier, less likely to gather in groups, be late for work more often, and take a big chunk of revenue away from the hospitality industry.
Whether you brew your blend at home, or have a favourite barista that you rely on for your daily hit, if coffee gives you a reason to smile, then that’s surely got to be a good thing. For those looking for a little extra from their coffee blends, the good news is that the world’s strongest coffee is about to hit Australian shores.
