The active ingredient in coffee is caffeine, which is a stimulant that blocks the effects of adenosine in the body. It increases the neural firing in brains and releases dopamine and norepinephrine. Controlled trials have revealed that caffeine can enhance mood, reaction time, memory, cognitive function and vigilance.

Burn Fat

Caffeine is found to be part of many commercial fat burning supplements. Due to its stimulant effects, caffeine can increase metabolism and enhance the oxidation of fatty acids. Athletes who want to improve their performance can use caffeine as it mobilizes the fatty acids from the fat tissues.

You may want to complement your daily morning stretches with a cup of coffee to reduce excess fat.

Coffee definitely has many more health benefits that indicate that drinking coffee on a daily basis is god for you. However, we must always remember that excess of everything is bad. Drink healthy amounts to experience the health effects. Moreover, never start your day just with a cup of coffee on an empty stomach.
