The beneficial properties of coffee in our lives.
Coffee consumption is truly a healthy habit for the majority of people. Coffee is full of antioxidants as well as beneficial nutrients that can improve our health. Studies show that those who drink coffee have a significantly lower risk of developing many serious diseases.
1. 1. Coffee can improve energy levels and make you smarter.
Coffee can help people feel less tired and increase their energy levels. This is because it contains a caffeine stimulant which is actually the first psychoactive substance in the world. After drinking coffee, the caffeine is absorbed into the bloodstream. From there, it travels to the brain. In the brain, caffeine prevents an inhibitory neurotransmitter called adenosine.
Many controlled trials on humans show that coffee improves various aspects of the brain function. Some are memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction and general cognitive functions. Conclusion: Caffeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain which results in the stimulation of others. This benefits levels of energy, mood and various aspects of the brain function.
2. Coffee can help you burn fat.
Did you know that caffeine exists in almost every trade supplement for burning fat? There is a good reason for this; Caffeine is one of the very few natural substances that have actually been proven to help burn fat. Several studies show that caffeine can boost the metabolic rate. They show that caffeine can increase the burning of fat (a higher percentage in obese people but also in people with normal weight). However, it is likely that any effects are reduced for long-term coffee consumers.
Conclusion: Several studies show that caffeine can increase the burning of body fat and increase the metabolic rate.
3.Caffeine can greatly improve your physical performance.
Caffeine stimulates the nervous system, sending signals to fat cells to break down body fat. At the same time, caffeine also increases the levels of epinephrine (adrenaline) in the blood. This is the "fight or flight" hormone, which is designed to make our body ready for intense physical activity.
Caffeine causes fat cells to break down body fat, releasing it into the blood as free fatty acids which our body uses as a fuel. Considering these results, it is not surprising that caffeine can improve our physical performance. It is therefore beneficial to drink a cup of coffee about half an hour before the gym.
Conclusion : Caffeine can increase adrenaline levels and release fatty acids from fatty tissues. It also leads to significant improvements in physical performance.
4. There are basic nutrients in coffee.
Coffee is more than just black water. Many of the nutrients in coffee beans make it a health-friendly drink.
A cup of filter coffee contains:
Although these doses may not seem important, in reality, most people drink more than a cup of coffee a day. If you drink 3 or 4 cups a day, then the benefits from these doses are serious.
Conclusion: Coffee contains many important nutrients including: riboflavin, pantothenic acid, manganese, potassium, magnesium and niacin.
5. Coffee may reduce the risk of type II diabetes.
Type II diabetes is a great health problem that is estimated to affect about 300 million people around the world. For some reason, those who drink coffee have a significantly reduced risk of developing type II diabetes. Studies show that people who drink more coffee have a 23-50% lower risk of developing this disease, and one study shows a decrease of up to 67%! According to a research that looked at data from 18 studies in a total of 457,922 people, each daily cup of coffee was associated with a reduced risk of 7% for type II diabetes.
Conclusion: Several studies show that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of developing type II diabetes; a serious illness that currently affects about 300 million people around the world.
6.Coffee can protect you from Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease. Alzheimer's usually affects people over 65 years of age and is the leading cause of dementia. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s. However, there are many things you can do to prevent this disease. Some of these are the usual suspects like maintaining a healthy diet and exercising, but drinking coffee can also be very effective. Several studies show that those who drink coffee have up to 65% lower risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Conclusion: In addition to other benefits, those who drink coffee have a much lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, which is leading cause of dementia.
7. Caffeine can reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease, which is the second most common neurodegenerative disease, just after Alzheimer’s.
Parkinson's disease is caused by the death of dopamine neurons produced in the brain. As with Alzheimer's disease, there is no known cure, which makes it very important for anyone to concentrate on its prevention. Those who drink coffee have a much lower risk of developing Parkinson's disease, with the risk reduction ranging from 32% to 60%. Those who drink decaf have no lower risk of developing Parkinson's disease.
Conclusion: Those who drink coffee have a 60% lower risk of developing Parkinson's disease, the second most common neurodegenerative disease.
8. Coffee can help fight depression and make you happier.
Depression is a serious mental disorder that causes a significant reduction in the quality of life. In a Harvard study published in 2011, women who drank 4 or more cups of coffee a day had a 20% lower risk of developing depression.
Conclusion: Coffee seems to help prevent depression.
9. f you drink coffee you have a lower risk of developing certain types of cancer.
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death and is characterised by the uncontrolled growth of cells in the body. Coffee seems to be protective against two types of cancer: liver cancer and colon cancer. Liver cancer is the third leading cause of death from cancer in the world, while colon cancer is the fourth most common cause of death from cancer in the world. Studies show that coffee drinkers have up to 40% lower risk of liver cancer. A study of 489,706 people found that those who drank 4-5 cups of coffee a day had a 15% lower risk of colon cancer.
Conclusion: Liver and colon cancer is the third and fourth most common cancer worldwide. Those who consume coffee have a lower risk of developing both.
10. Coffee reduces the risk of heart disease and can also reduce the risk of heart attacks.
We often hear that caffeine increases the blood pressure. This is true, but the effect is very small (3-4 mm / Hg), and it decreases even more when we drink coffee regularly. However, the effect may be dominant in some cases. It’s good to keep this in mind, just in case you have an increased blood pressure. Studies do not support the myth that coffee increases the risk of heart disease. In fact, there are some indications that women who drink coffee have a reduced risk of heart disease. Some studies suggest that those who drink coffee have a 20% lower risk of stroke.
Conclusion: Coffee can cause mild increases in blood pressure, which usually decreases over time. Coffee users (in addition to health benefits) have no increased risk of heart disease but a slightly lower risk of heart attacks.
11. Coffee can help you live longer.
Since drinking coffee makes you healthier and less likely to suffer from many diseases, it is reasonable to think that coffee can help you live longer. There are indeed many studies that show that people who consume coffee regularly have a lower risk of death. In two very large studies, coffee was associated with a 20% lower risk of death in men and a 26% lower risk of death in women. This effect appears to be particularly strong in type II diabetics. In one study, diabetics who drank coffee had a 30% lower risk of death.
Conclusion: Several studies show that people who consume coffee regularly live longer and have a lower risk of premature death.
12.Coffee is the largest source of antioxidants in the Western diet.
For people who follow a typical Western diet, coffee may be the healthiest aspect of it. This is because coffee contains a huge amount of antioxidants. Studies show that most people take more antioxidants from coffee rather than fruits and vegetables combined! Although coffee has been challenged throughout its history, it is without a doubt one of the healthiest beverages on the planet with many benefits to our overall health.
DID YOU KNOW:
Any physical or chemical exfoliation aims at eliminating dead skin cells from our body and face. After bathing, people in ancient Greece used natural products such as fruits, flowers, sea salt and shells as an exfoliant in order to keep the skin smooth and shiny.
The benefits of exfoliation
Rejuvenates and refreshes the skin. The skin becomes smooth, soft and shiny. After every application, you instantly create a natural hydration in your body since exfoliation stimulates the collagen and allows the skin to regain its elasticity.
Choose the best exfoliation for you with the assistance of our beauty advisor. Bear in mind the lifestyle and weather conditions around you. The ingredients used usually remove your dead skin cells as well as cells that are still in good condition. This can awaken skin problems such as inflammation and redness. Cleopatra was reputed for her flawless complexion. Testimonies say that she bathed daily in honey and donkey’s milk.
For an overall smooth shiny tanned skin that lasts. Peeling and Hydration are the two things you need before you go out in the sun!
Daily cleansing and moisturising of the skin is the best way to protect it from external factors and a prerequisite for its health and shine. A clean and moisturised skin is evenly tanned and preserves its golden and radiant shade for a longer period of time.
Before, and especially after and during your holidays, you should maintain a daily beauty routine that includes cleansing of the skin before and after exposure to the sun (with an emulsion, soap or gel). You need to make sure that you Exfoliate once or twice a week (depending on the type of skin and depth of any exfoliation) and hydrate (mask treatment applied daily with an emulsion rich in moisturising agents that you can apply onto your body even before your sunscreen).
Removing dead cells and sebum from our skin is a step in our care routine that needs to be repeated 1-2 times a week, while in some cases - more mature and problematic skins - dermatologists do recommend even more often.
By exfoliating your skin, you give it the opportunity to renew itself as the cell renewal is activated for shine, and thus benefits more from any cosmetic treatment.
The exfoliation mixture is applied to clean skin with a soft or strong circular massage movements depending on the skin. Rinse with plenty of water and tap the body with a towel. Treat your skin with a thick moisturising cream throughout the body.
The best time for exfoliating and hydrating is recommended towards the end of the day, as the skin regeneration mechanisms work during sleep. Do not expose yourself to the sun immediately after a peeling. Let at least 12 hours pass in order to not wake any unwanted skin diseases.
