Your Coffee Machine brings you joy on a daily basis, a brew can help get you through the day, we’re sure of it. Though, if you read the health benefits of coffee you may just grow to love the bean and your machine even more.

There Are Essential Nutrients in Coffee

Coffee is full of essentially nutrients that the human body needs. Our much loved brews are far more than a cup of just black water and several nutrients from coffee beans make their way into the drink, even if it is rich with milk, crema, sugar etc. One single cup of coffee will contain 11% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin B2, 6% of Vitamin B5, 3% of the recommended daily allowance of manganese and potassium and 2% of the recommended magnesium and niacin. We do concede that this may not seem like a lot but if you drink three-four cups per day, it will soon add up.

For the best effect, you should drink a cup of coffee roughly half-an-hour before you work out.

Coffee Can Help You Burn Fat

Whilst coffee will in no way help you lose weight, nor should it be used as a weight loss tool, it can boost your metabolic rate by some 3-11%. However, if you’re a regular long-term coffee drinker, this effect is likely to be lesser.
