Why is coffee an energizer?
The most famous property of coffee is the energy it provides us with due to a substance called caffeine, which is also contained in tea and even in chocolate, but at a lower concentration. The molecules of caffeine are structurally similar to adrenaline – a hormone produced by human adrenal glands; it also provides us with everything needed for survival in an extreme situation: muscle tone, intense attention, quick reaction and clear thinking. In a state of tranquility adrenaline is also produced, but in smaller amounts, just to maintain the body during the day, revealing its "super potencial powers" only after a short extreme increase.
Something similar happens when people drink coffee, as caffeine affects the same receptors in the brain as adrenaline does. A small portion of caffeine helps concentrate on the necessary tasks, think more quickly and clearly, to train more efficiently, and bigger one does the same, but more intensely.
“Hidden” benefits of coffee
In addition to energizing properties, caffeine also has other less-known positive effects, namely, it:
• stimulates digestion;
• removes excess liquid;
• increases arterial pressure (useful for hypotonics);
• helps control appetite.
In addition to caffeine, coffee contains organic acids that neutralize the action of free radicals and thus prevent premature aging. Of course, all of this concerns only high-quality coffee beans, which is much better to buy home.
Contraindications and precautions
