Hello my coffee addicts! Today I wanted to talk and find some interesting things about the one thing we all love. Some of you may have heard of these before but I haven’t, so I’m sure a few of you would like to know 9 interesting facts you didn’t know about the benefits of our favorite drink…..COFFEE!
Many of you may remember that I went all black about a year ago. Upon a Pinterest post I discovered that you need a little sugar in your coffee to balance your insulin levels. Some studies that you read DO NOT offer that information. A lot of things that I come across just state ‘If you drink more coffee you’re less likely to develop diabetes’. They don’t say you need the sugar in the black coffee and I now started adding about 1/2 teaspoon back into my cups and I feel like it makes a huge difference. But my body is weird and I often have to switch things up from time to time.
Interesting Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Coffee
- Coffee Can Reduce The Effects Alcohol Has On Your Liver– while many studies just mention the fact that ‘It’s Good For Your Insides’……they don’t tell you in depth why the COFFEE is good. Livestrong spells it out for us. If you or someone you know has struggled with having too much alcohol in their system, tell them to drink more coffee please! It can reverse the effects and give your liver the proper care that it needs.
- Reduces The Risk Of Suicide + Depression– maybe you already knew this and so did I but it’s extremely important to keep up the awareness about these two because I’ve battled them both in my lifetime. And as many of you may have, just knowing that coffee in our lives can help save us is a true gift. Drink more and go on lots of coffee dates! I love you.
- All Coffee Is Not Created Equal– most coffee is grown in countries with little to no standards regulating the use of pesticides and chemicals. Farm rich, organic coffee is far more healthy than Folgers (I’m guilty of drinking this daily) and inexpensive brands. Pay a little more for a better coffee life!
- Adding Cinnamon is an Added Bonus– I love cinnamon and knew that it was healthy but not this healthy. Adding just a little to your coffee every morning can do a boat load of positivity for our bodies.
- Coffee Tightens Your Skin– um hello, why do you think I make so much coffee scrub? I usually just use on my face (because it is so messy) but if you rub into your skin (do in the morning only-or when you want to be wide awake) and watch the cellulite and wrinkles fade. Not to mention this homemade body scrub makes your skin soft as *!
- Helps Grow Hair– this is one I haven’t heard yet but those suffering baldness, alopecia, here’s a reason to drink at least 2-3 cups a day.
- Coffee Boosts Your Mood– well duh, that’s why we drink it….to accomplish happiness. But those who do not drink it and are looking for a way to increase healthy moods, give it a sip!
- Coffee Could Help Reduce Chronic Pain– true story! I went in to have an unexpected surgery and the physician on duty said I had a high tolerance to pain. He didn’t understand why I wasn’t screaming or crying when he pressed the area that was affected and I said, ‘I don’t know, maybe because I have kids!?’ But after doing some research I discovered that it was because I drank coffee. I suffer migraines and daily pain all over my body. Coffee really helps. If you drink too much though, it will cause headaches. Moderate.
- Coffee Makes You Social– I never liked talking to people until I started drinking coffee. It’s a natural way to get over social anxiety and become the life of the crowd.
There’s a ton more benefits like, helping with erectile dysfunction and certain cancer fighting studies out there claiming coffee is the all natural way to detox, live better and give you a reason to plan a coffee date. I’m sure you want a reason to drink the stuff and there you have it!
coffee really is more fun
