Other benefits of drinking coffee

There is a clear link between coffee consumption and the ability to do physical exercise. Drink a cup of coffee 30 minutes before starting to exercise for an energizing and invigorating effect, and to prevent muscle fatigue.

When consumed black, without sugar or milk, instant coffee contains 80 calories less per a 150 ml cup. So coffee doesn’t influence the total daily calorie intake. The caffeine content helps to maintain concentration at demanding times and it improves short-term memory and banishes fatigue that occurs during the second part of the day, especially after meals.

Other bioactive compounds in coffee are polyphenols, which have antioxidant properties, and thus have an important role in protecting tissues from free radicals.
