Although there are many articles that
say the dangers of consuming coffee, there are also many articles that say the
benefits of consuming black coffee. Maybe what we should pay attention to is
the type of coffee we consume. Is it black coffee or milk coffee or sachet
coffee or contemporary coffee (whatever the term is)?
Because in my opinion, if we really consume fresh black coffee without a
mixture of sugar or milk, then there are many benefits that we can feel. This
time I want to discuss 12 scientific reasons why you should drink black coffee
every day. Previously, I want to make sure again, the black coffee referred to
here is pure black coffee without a mixture of sugar and milk. Truly black
coffee. What are the reasons?
Liver Organ Functions
Unlike drinking alcohol, it turns out that drinking black coffee every day
can nourish your liver function. It has been proven that individuals who drink
at least 3 cups of dark espresso each day will have a 80% lower shot at
creating cirrhosis (a condition wherein the liver is harmed by scar tissue). In
addition, by consuming the same amount, the chances of developing liver cancer
are 40% lower. Amazing isn’t it?
2. Make Smarter
Coffee contains caffeine. Caffeine is a psychoactive stimulant. When we
drink black coffee, caffeine enters our digestive tract, then into our
bloodstream. and finally into our brain (this process takes about 30-45
minutes). And when caffeine hits our brain, it will block one of the inhibitory
neurotransmitters in our brain, namely Adenosine.
That is why, when we drink black coffee, our concentration increases again.
You feel the same way too right?

Want to lose weight? try black coffee. Because it turns out that the
caffeine in coffee is directly proven as a substance that can burn fat. So it
can help us lose weight.

weight immediately. You also have to balance it with regular exercise and
maintain a healthy diet. But at least drinking black coffee will help you lose
weight. Dare to try? Remember, pure black coffee without milk and sugar. Not
coffee milk or modern iced coffee.

drink is half a cup of sugar, half a cup of milk, half a cup of coffee. But if
you drink pure black coffee without a mixture then research shows an average 7%
reduced risk of diabetes for each cup. Let’s drink pure black coffee with fueled by coffee.
6. Reduces Parkinson’s Risk
No one wants to get a neurodegenerative disease – especially those whose
family members have experienced it. Parkinson’s is associated with a drop of
dopamine. And because black coffee can increase dopamine levels in our brains,
drinking black coffee can reduce the chances of developing Parkinson’s.
Regular pure black coffee drinkers without sugar and milk have been shown to
have a 32-60% reduced chance of developing Parkinson’s.
7. Reduces Depression and Makes Happier
Remember, pure black coffee contains a lot of caffeine, and caffeine will
increase the dopamine in our brain. Dopamine is generally known as the
“happiness chemical”. So it makes sense that if we consume something that can
increase dopamine it will make us happy and not depressed. Have you ever felt
the same way? If not, replace your coffee with pure black coffee without sugar

which will make our heart healthy. But don’t use it as an excuse not to
exercise. Still must be balanced with exercise.
10. Cleansing the Digestive System in the Body
It turns out that coffee is a diuretic (it functions to remove excess salt
and water from the body through urine). By drinking coffee often, we will also
urinate frequently. Of course this will be good for our bodies, because it will
keep the digestive system clean. Because the human body often gets rid of
harmful viruses and bacteria in this way. And it is proven that people who
often drink black coffee are less likely to get sick.
