10 Reasons Why You Need To Drink Coffee (part 1)

If you don’t drink coffee then start today! At Ionia Espresso we sell commercial coffee machines across Glasgow, to make sure you have your coffee fix, wherever you are!


#1 – Improved Energy Levels

It is no secret that coffee contains high levels of caffeine. Too much caffeine can be potentially damaging to your sleeping pattern but starting your day with a coffee can boost your energy levels. Ingesting caffeine causes an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain to be blocked, leading to a stimulant effect. This is what wakes you up, making you feel energetic and less tired.

#2 – Smarter Brain

Not only do these stimulants make you more active, there is also evidence that they improve various aspects of brain function. The caffeine is absorbed into the bloodstream, travelling to the brain, boosting attention span, reaction times and a better ability to take in new information.

#3 – Fat Burner

Found in nearly all commercial fat burning supplements, the benefits of caffeine to your diet are not a lie. As one of the few natural substances proven to aid fat burning, the caffeine in coffee can boost metabolic rate; however, these effects have been known to diminish in long-term coffee drinkers.

#4 – Builds Physical Performance

Stimulating the nervous system, caffeine causes certain signals to be sent to the fat cells in your body which then break down body fat. It also increases Epinephrine (adrenaline) levels in the blood which is a hormone designed to make the body ready for intense physical exercise. It’s a good idea to have a strong cup of coffee about half an hour before going to the gym.

#5 – Defeats Diabetes

Frequent coffee consumption has been linked to lowering the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It is suspected that antioxidant compounds in coffee boost cells’ sensitivity to insulin. This then helps regulate blood sugar, which is what diabetic bodies struggle to do.
