You join me at every breakfast for many years now, making my mornings with your aroma, creamy and intense flavor, something special.
You were my stalwart partner in all those long nights of study, and without showing any weakness, gave me strength to keep going.
When the cold winter and made an impression on me, your warmth comforted me …In difficult times, when the weather was poor, you were the perfect excuse to get closer to my friends.
Sometimes I played tricks. Aceleraste my heart heretofore unsuspected, insomnia and addiction provoked me, but if you did not have … the fatigue was evident. So … as I’m going to criticize something, if you’ve always been there for me when I needed you.
That is why today, friend coffee, I dedicate this post.
One of the main reasons for the consumption of coffee, apart from its characteristic flavor, is one of its most emblematic components, caffeine; substance that acts as a psychoactive drug and stimulant of the nervous system.
At present large quantities of marketed alkaloid, as a sports supplement, as are numerous studies showing its benefits in improving athletic performance. While it is normal to be used mainly for endurance sports, to counteract the effects of exhaustion and improve concentration, it is unknown which also helps reduce muscle pain during high-intensity exercise.
According to a study by scientists from the University of Illinois and the Center for Sport and Health Sciences of Iceland University of Education, it was found that caffeine decreased muscle pain during the 30 minutes of high intensity exercise on a stationary bicycle.
Besides caffeine, coffee contains many other substances such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, that make coffee a healthy drink, obviously taking it in perspective.
If you are a person in need of scientific evidence in order to believe in the benefits of a particular item, you will be pleased to know that there are solid foundations that support everything will comment below.
According to the medical expert of Physical Education and Sport and Maria Antonia Lizarraga, “moderate coffee consumption is beneficial to health due to its antioxidant capacity and its protective effect of the digestive system”.
The antioxidant power of coffee can be a protective factor against many cardiovascular diseases, digestive (pharynx, esophagus cancer, liver and colon), and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s type.
And ending, the specialist in Endocrinology and Nutrition Riobo Pilar says that “coffee consumption in the long term may also reduce the risk of developing diabetes mellitus and improve metabolic control of glucose, even in diabetic patients.”
Well, dear coffee lovers and dear readers, if before we had enough reasons to take a couple of cups of coffee a day, we now have every reason!
