Coffee is one of the most ubiquitous and unifying products in the world. It is consumed in great volume in every corner of the earth. Here are compelling reasons to embrace our java overlord:
– As we all know, Caffeinated coffee keeps people awake and provides their central nervous systems with a boost that helps keep them productive throughout the day.
-The coffee break is a 20th century invention, becoming more prevalent following the Second World War. A 2010 study at MITshowed that employees who take coffee breaks together demonstrate an overall improvement in their productivity.
-Another study conducted by the National Institute for Health concluded that consuming caffeine before performing pain-inducing computer work resulted in attenuated pain development versus subjects who did not consume caffeine. Admittedly, the sample size of the study is small, but the results show the possibility of prescribing caffeine as an everyday pain moderator.
-More importantly, coffee drinkers at work tend to be happier in their jobs.
In 2011, a survey released a list of the professions that consumed the most amount of coffee. Rounding out the top 5 in the list: scientists/lab technicians, marketing/PR professionals, education administrators, writers/editors and healthcare administrators.
-Numerous studies have linked the consumption of caffeine to increased metabolic activity. As such, it should come as no surprise that most commercial fat burning supplements contain caffeine.
