Coffee is a strong woman’s best friend. It gets you through the sleepless nights, the stressful business planning days and keeps you warm on nights when you’d rather be by yourself than to deal with f-boys.
There are many up-sides to drinking coffee and every espresso-loving individual knows most of them – it boosts energy and feeds your body tons of anti-oxidants that are known to fight certain diseases like cancer and diabetes.
But have you really thought about the effects of coffee inside our bodies? You know, the processes that we can’t see with our naked eyes? Well, according to science, here are the things that happen to your body when you drink your daily dose of mojo:
Your Vision Sharpens
Within 20 minutes of drinking coffee, your body produces an increased amount of adrenaline, causing your vision to become sharper and “high-quality.” It’s the complete opposite of feeling sleepy when your vision becomes blurred and groggy. When you drink coffee, you’ll notice improved vision and better focus on details.
A 2009 study conducted by researchers at Durham University found that people who consumed about 3 cups of coffee everyday were more likely to hallucinate than those who drank less or don’t drink coffee at all. Hallucinations include sensing spooky stuff like disembodied voices, strange noises and seeing things that aren’t there.
You Feel Stronger
40 minutes after drinking coffee, the serotonin levels in your body begin to increase, this improves the motor neurons. Motor neurons are responsible for muscle functions. So, drinking just a cup of coffee could increase muscle strength and making you feel stronger.
You Lose Vitamins And Minerals
Caffeine is a natural diuretic. A diuretic is any substance that increases the production of urine by flushing out certain vitamins and minerals from our body. When you drink too much coffee, you run the risk of losing important vitamins and minerals that your body needs. It could also cause your skin to be dry and your body to lose water. So if you drink coffee, remember to drink water as well. Coffee may be your best friend but water is your life saver!
