Oh look, we just found a coffee-o’clock there.
This clock defines the life of every coffee lover, because, for them, no matter what time of the day it is, coffee is always a good idea.
Coffee acts as a relaxant and a wake-up call. Coffee is a brewed beverage with a bunch of widely-accepted benefits, including increased concentration and energy.
But, the coffee that you consider your best friend and your companion is not as good as you think it is (and also not as bad as people claim). That’s why we decided to show you how exactly your body responds to the consumption of coffee.
As the caffeine enters your bloodstream, your heart rate and blood pressure starts rising.
As the caffeine connects to your brain’s adenosine receptors, you start to feel refreshed and focused.
And this is just the beginning.
Your body starts to produce adrenaline. Also, your vision sharpens as your pupils dilate slightly.
The level of serotonin in your body rises, thus improving the functioning of the motor neurons which increases muscle strength.
Coffee increases the rate at which your cells release energy. And when that happens, your body tends to break down fats, even if you don’t move.
Also, caffeine stimulates and increases the production of stomach acids.
Caffeine also causes a diuretic effect.
Besides water, your body also loses some essential vitamins and minerals, which can further lead to slight disorders of calcium metabolism.
On that note, would you rather drop the number or times you drink coffee or call for another round?
