I cannot say enough how much I love my new espresso machine and the one thing I can say already is that I actually enjoy doing it myself. That is probably because it is a bit easier than I imagined and my machine makes it a simple process that just about anyone could do. Many of my friends suggested that I invest in an espresso machine after nothing how much I love to drink coffee in the mornings. In only a short amount of time, I can already see that this machine will pay for itself in no time at all.
What is even better is that there are many people that are unaware of the benefits of drinking espresso and would be surprised at how good a small cup can be for health. Of course, everything should be done in moderation, and that includes espressos and coffee, but the overall benefits cannot be denied. Most people relate to espressos as small energy drinks that pick you up quite quickly and provide a jolt of energy to help you make it through a day in a pinch. I know that there are many out there that don’t consider drinking espresso a method to maintain overall health, but here are some reasons why you may want to reconsider.
Improvements in Long-Term Memory
Did you know that when you drink espresso you can improve your memory by helping the brain to retain stored information and recall it when needed. Some people in college even like to drink it while studying since it helps them to remember what they are going over better.
Espresso not only helps to boost energy levels, but it helps you to focus on your daily responsibilities. Once that espresso kicks dopamine into the brain, you will notice that you are mentally more alert. When I am feeling sluggish, I will have an espresso as a way to thwart exhaustion and fatigue. There are many studies that have demonstrated how one espresso can significantly impact productivity. You should, however, be aware of how much espresso you are consuming each day as it can affect your sleeping patterns at night.
High In Antioxidants
Coffee has lots of antioxidants that help to prevent diseases. It also contains hydrocinnamic acids that can neutralize the harmful elements we encounter each day like air pollution, ultraviolet rays, and smoke.
Boosting Physical Activity
We all want to maintain a lifestyle that is healthier and before engaging in a workout, a cup of espresso can be just the trick to help you reach peak performance. Whether it is a daily workout at the gym or some sporting event, a small cup may be just the thing you need to give you that extra jolt to get through the regimen. The adrenaline rush can keep you going for longer and enable you to burn off more calories and/or reduce stress levels. I find that a small cup of espresso before I hit my gym in the morning has been quite impactful in helping me reach my personal goals.
