If you aren’t a coffee person, wait till you hear all about its benefits:
1. Helps to boost your metabolism

Coffee contains caffeine, which is shown to increase your metabolic resting rate by up to 11%. It increases the fat-burning mechanism in your body, which means it helps to promote weight loss too! What’s more, a study that included eight participants showed a 13% increase in their calorie burning and two-fold increase in fat burning, thanks to the consumption of coffee! Amazing, isn’t it?

2. Could uplift your mood

The caffeine in cold coffee could also help to uplift your mood, especially if you are sleep-deprived. A review of studies in over 370,000 people found that those who drank coffee had lower rates of depression. What’s more, research says that for every cup of coffee consumed per day, depression risk goes down by eight percent. 

3. May be easier on your stomach

Yes, we are speaking about cold coffee! There are many people who do not have coffee, because it triggers acid reflux. The chances of indigestion and heartburn are much more when you consume hot coffee. Moreover, cold coffee contains crude polysaccharides. These carbohydrates, or chains of sugar molecules, boost the immunity of your digestive system, and decrease gut irritation.
