Consumption of Caffeine improves brain functioning and slows aging process, Research says


Science proved consumption of coffee helps in improving brain functioning and slows down the aging process.

Now research indicates that coffee can help you lose weight along with the body fat:

Several studies were reviewed by Geoffrey James, where he identifies several benefits of coffee consumption. Coffee aids in reducing the chances of cancer, approximately around 20%. Coffee consumption aids in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes and Parkinson’s disease by 30%.

It is further proved by science that when you consume one cup of coffee, the caffeine in the coffee attaches with the neurons where usually adenosine is connected. This hormone adenosine makes an individual feel sleepy and activates the endocrine system, which further releases the glutamate. Glutamate is a type of neurotransmitter that enhances your ability to learn and make new memories. Coffee serves as the kick-starter for the entire day. Coffee is a type of superfood that works effectively for reducing cholesterol production along with its positive impact on weight gain.


The University of Illinois conducted the research; it indicates that consumption of caffeine slows down the weight gain, which might occur due to the obesogenic diet. The use of caffeine reduces the storage of lipids within the fat cells and reduces the formation of triglycerides. The researchers continued to feed the rats who consumed caffeine for around four weeks, where they gained 16% less weight, 22% less body fat when compared to the rats who were not given caffeine. The researchers then dug up further to identify the exact cause by exposing the fat or adipose cells of such mice to different types of caffeine. The result was seen that caffeine helped in reducing the deposition of lipids within the adipose cells by around 20-40%. The researchers then tracked various genes and their expression linked with the metabolism of fats along with obesity. It shows that caffeine reduces the formation of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, along with the accumulation of triglycerides in the liver.

If we explain it, in simpler terms, the consumption of caffeine leads to a negative effect over the high sucrose or high-fat diet over the body composition. It occurs due to the modulation of specific lysogenic enzymes present within the adipose tissues or liver. It further lowers down the synthesis or accumulation of any triglycerides within the fatty tissues. However, it is advised by scientists to consume less than 3 cups of coffee per day to avoid any negative consequences. But it is seen that the tolerance of caffeine varies from one person to another. Several studies show that the consumption of caffeine i.e., around 3-5 cups daily, does not pose adverse effects over the body of an average individual. And 6 to 8 cups of coffee each day offers enormous beneficial effects.


Researchers further indicate that if you are consuming caffeine for weight loss, it serves as an anti-obesity agent. The results were formulated to explain humans regarding the potential strategies and role of caffeine that helps in preventing any obesity and metabolic disorders that are linked with such conditions.


Researchers further explain through such studies that caffeine intake reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, or heart disease. The use of caffeine in everyday routine aids in enhancing the endurance, focus, and concentration of an individual. It increases the life span of an average individual and helps in losing body fat. All these practical benefits of caffeine conclude that it is a win-win beverage for being a healthy individual.
