Ok but in all seriousness, here’s what your coffee order actually says about you….you drink coffee. Which in our eyes makes you trustworthy – it’s those sneaky ‘tea only’ drinkers you’ve really got to watch out for.
Time wasting meme’s aside (is it a meme? I don’t even know, it’s what the kids are saying), coffee is actually the shit. And not just cause it’s freaking delicious, with the added benefit of keeping our eyeballs in our heads on the days (/weeks/months) our toddlers decide sleep is for the weak. There are actually a load of other benefits coffee brings to the table:
- Studies have shown that coffee may have links to protecting against Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, type 2 diabetes and liver disease – including liver cancer. This is according to the Mayo Clinic – so you know, actually legit.
- Coffee does in fact increase neuronal firing in the brain – channel that buzz into your work, and it’ll be accolades and promotions alllllll day long.
- As far as fat burners go, coffee is the real deal. Almost all ‘fat burning products’ (there’s a blog for another time) contain caffeine, so rather than adding all the artificial crap that comes along with that, we’ll be sticking to the caffeine.
- Coffee is loaded with awesome micro-nutrients (Vitamins B2, B3 & B5, Potassium, and Magnesium) and anti-oxidents. The good stuff that keeps our gut (and therefore bodies) thriving.
Like anything, moderation is key, as well as understanding your own body. If 3 double shot long blacks a day keep you up all night – maybe stop doing that. Getting the shakes post caffeination – it’s probably time to hit the half strength button. But if you’re after a productivity boost, reduced risk of a bunch of diseases, and some added nutrition – coffee may just be your new best friend.
