Six Health Benefits of Coffee You Should Know

  1. Boost Your Mood or Energy Levels: It is a fact that coffee contains caffeine. What is caffeine? Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that is known for its ability to fight fatigue and increase alertness and energy levels. Sounds good to me.
  2. Support Gut Health: According to some research, coffee could alter fat storage and support gut health, both of which may be beneficial for weight management.
  3. Prevents Gallstones: There are various proposed actions of caffeine or components in coffee that may prevent the formation of gallstones. Coffee may prevent cholesterol from forming into crystals in the gallbladder. It may stimulate contractions in the gallbladder and increase the flow of bile so that cholesterol does not collect.
  4. Lower Risk of Cancer: Recent studies find that coffee may lower the risk of several types of cancer. Coffee is incredibly high in antioxidants, which have anti-inflammatory effects, and can counter both heart disease and cancer.
  5. Could Increase Longevity: Research found that those who drank coffee on a regular basis had a lower risk of dying. Coffee could be solving problems such as heart diseases, diabetes, brain conditions, and suicide.
  6. Enhance Your Exercise: Caffeine is well known to enhance and prolong exercise performance. The stimulating effect of caffeine has been shown to reduce feelings of fatigue. One review of nine studies reported that drinking coffee before exercise improved people’s endurance and decreased their perceived exertion, compared with a control group.

How to Subscribe to Coffee Roaster

Take advantage of National Coffee Day from the comfort of your home. If you own a coffee grinder, use the celebration as an opportunity to buy some of your favorite coffee beans at discounted prices. Some online retailers offer 20–30% discounts on bagged beans in observance of the national celebration.

My favorite coffee roaster is Trade Coffee they are known for their variety of coffee beans from Ethiopia, Columbia, Brazil, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, and many more. If you're not sure where to start, several specialist coffee companies offer subscription services to enable you to taste a selection of different beans. Every month, you'll receive delivery through your mailbox.

By the way, if you're not ready on receiving a random bag of coffee every month then you'll be pleased to hear that Trade will only send you coffee that matches your tasting profile. Before sending the first bag, you'll have to respond to a six-page consultative questionnaire on their website. Then, they evaluate based on your preferences. Once you've tried the first delivery, you're asked to rate it to further refine your tasting profile. This is to ensure your next coffee beans deliveries in your mailbox are the ones you'll be liking.

No. I didn't know about National coffee day until I read your article. I'm not a regular coffee drinker but sometimes when I get sleepy in the afternoon I grab a cup. My fav flavor is hazelnut.
