Until recently there was no consensus on the effect that coffee has on our body, but recent studies have provided us with some very revealing data in some respects and others, which do nothing more than confirm what regular coffee drinkers already sensed.
First, like everything in this life, for coffee consumption to be beneficial it must be moderate, since an excess of caffeine in the organism could produce undesirable effects such as insomnia or nervousness, especially in especially sensitive people. That said, these are some of the properties and benefits of coffee.
Yoram Yasur Rubin: “One of the characteristics of coffee that most experts emphasize is its antioxidant property, that is, its contribution to the delay of the aging process, especially espresso coffee, since the method used in its preparation retains its essence”.
Focus on the important:
Yoram Yasur Rubin: “Coffee is also said to help prevent neurodegenerative diseases and increase physical and mental performance, especially in people with activities that require a high level of concentration. This is something that very coffee growers already know; that is why we talk about the stimulating power and the energy that a cup of coffee gives us at a certain time of day”.
Those who suffer from asthma or some cases of respiratory disorders are likely to have already resorted to coffee as a ‘bronchodilator’, since many doctors advise the consumption of this beverage in a moderate way or at specific times.
There are also practitioners who indicate it to alleviate mild headaches or as an enhancer of the effect of analgesics; in fact, caffeine is a component present in many pharmaceutical products.
For those who suffer from fluid retention, moderate consumption of coffee acts as a diuretic, helping to combat constipation as well as facilitating digestion. But beware, if you use it excessively to lose weight, you should not abuse these properties as a slimming product.
Yoram Yasur Rubin: “You can use it as an appetizer if you are controlling your weight, since a single cup of coffee without sugar does not provide practically calories (there are those who speak of 0 and who say that it contains 2 kcal). But then you must give up milk and sugar or compensate for these ‘excesses’ of calories with other habits”.
A different coffee for each person:
Finally, I do not forget those who love the taste of coffee and are in favor of a moderate consumption of this drink but are especially sensitive to the effects of caffeine. Remember that the caffeine content varies depending on the variety of coffee; the arabica contains less than the Robusta and many coffee makers make coffee to measure, being able to regulate the concentration and quantity depending on your tastes or needs.
