To all my coffee loving friends here are the health benefits associated from drinking some joe.
Coffee can improve energy levels and make you smarter in the process
A cup of Coffee in the morning can keep you up and going for the rest of the day. Caffeine is a very powerful thing if not abused. One cup of Coffee should do it for you. When the Caffeine in the Coffee is absorbed into your blood stream its transmitted to the brain where Dopamine is released in the brain and while Dopamine is being produced Neurons in the brain are simultaneously firing . Coffee can also help you keep a steady memory, Overall Mood, Energy levels, Reaction Time and Cognitive Function due to those Neurons working faster than they usually would without Coffee!
