Well, I have to confess upfront that I am heavy coffee drinker. The day just doesn’t seem right if I don’t drink a cup of coffee in the morning.
I have greater incentive to drink a little more coffee as research has found that guzzling coffee may help cut heart disease and boost the lifespan. However, I’ll need to be drinking more than five cups of coffee a day. In addition, other research has linked the consumption of coffee leads to lower rates of heart attack, liver cancer and diabetes. But like I always like to say, consume everything in moderation.
In addition, Australian researchers have found that coffee consumption together with a carbs diet can help athletes recover much faster after their training sessions. They found that pairing caffeine and food dramatically increases the levels of glycogen, the main fuel source for muscles. Well, I’m no athlete, so I’ll never know if the research is true. But I’m sure for all athletes this will be a legal way for them to squeeze something extra from themselves in their quest for glory.
