3 Ways Drinking Coffee Every Day Improves Your Health, Monroe, Louisiana

There is no denying Americans love their coffee. With coffee shops, like Monroe, LA's Donut Palace, all over the country, it’s safe to say coffee is more than a trend. The good news for all of these coffee drinkers is that their daily cup of Joe actually offers more perks than simply acting as a pick-me-up.

If you are not already among the 50% of the population who likes to have a cup of coffee with your breakfast each morning, here are a few healthy reasons you might like to start:

  • Provides The Most Antioxidants: In general, antioxidants have been linked to providing protection against numerous health conditions, including heart disease and cancer. A study published by the University of Scranton discovered that coffee offers more antioxidants than any other food people regularly consume. Researchers in the study encouraged people to consume one to two cups a day to receive these health benefits.

  • coffeeKeeps Depressions At Bay: A study performed by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Cancer Institute on drinking sweetened beverages showed that coffee drinkers were less likely to be depressed than non-coffee drinkers. People who consume soft drinks, such as Coke, on the other hand, were discovered to be more likely depressed, so caffeine was ruled out as the cause. Instead, researchers believe coffee boosts the production of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline.

  • Improves Athletic Abilities: Athletes who participate in endurance sports such as running and cycling have known for a long time that drinking a cup of coffee before a workout is a good way to improve their performance. This is all thanks to caffeine, which increases the number of fatty acids in the bloodstream and allows the muscles to absorb and burn fats for fuel, saving carbohydrates for later on in the race.

If you have found a new reason to drink coffee each day, the Donut Palace is waiting to serve you. As a bonus, you can also grab one of their delicious breakfast items while you're there. Stop in at one of the three Monroe locations today. To learn more about this coffee shop, call (318) 605-4834, or visit the website.
