Many athletes have known for years that coffee leads to improved athletic performance.
Drinking a cup of coffee before a workout increases the number of fatty acids in the bloodstream.
These in turn fuel the muscles, allowing the body to hold any carbohydrates for later in the workout.
This reserve process allows athletes to work out more effectively, particularly in endurance sports.
Long distance runners, cyclists, and triathlon athletes have been using this secret for years, and you can too.
A few studies have even shown that coffee drinkers are likely to live longer.
Since coffee helps to reduce the risk of so many deadly diseases, it’s no stretch to expect that this leads to a longer life expectancy.
A study of people between 50 and 71 years old found that those who drank coffee had a much-reduced risk of dying in the next 12 to 13 years.
This was particularly the case for those participants who drank 4 to 5 cups of coffee per day!
So here’s to many more years of your morning coffee and your healthy life!
