What time of the day do you like to consume the coffee? Are you one of those who cannot wake up without coffee in the morning, or who say I should drink a cup of coffee after every meal? Coffee has become so embedded in our culture that it can be consumed almost at any time of the day. After all, a cup of coffee has forty years sake. So what effects does caffeine have on your metabolism and can it have a say on when you drink coffee? Let’s explore the answer to this question together.
In a study conducted at the University of Bath, some effects of sleep disturbance and morning coffee on metabolism were examined. The result of this research I have read has surprised me, I wish studies in this direction to be carried out and I will follow it closely. You know that it is important to keep up to date with scientific data, but it is necessary to be very careful while giving suggestions to the general. According to this research, it is stated that when you drink coffee on an empty stomach before breakfast, your body can increase the blood sugar response by about 50 percent. Simply put, when your body first touches coffee, blood sugar control can become difficult, especially if you haven’t gotten sleep that day. You can try to achieve the potential stimulating benefits of caffeine by consuming coffee after breakfast. I would also like to remind you of the importance of keeping your blood sugar levels within a safe range to reduce the risk of diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
If you feel you need coffee, it may be helpful to have breakfast first. Breakfast is undoubtedly one of the most important meals of the day in summer and winter. Starting your day with breakfast can help your whole day be more energetic. Because even if you feel full when you wake up, having a snack will activate your metabolism and work the body.
How Much Coffee Can We Drink?
Caffeine has an effect on accelerating blood circulation and accelerating metabolism, but besides its benefits, there are also harms of excessive coffee consumption. Caffeine should be limited to 400 mg per day. Too much caffeine during the day can cause insomnia, headache, tension and anxiety.
The amount of caffeine in the beverages depends on the type, quantity and whether it is caffeinated. While the caffeine content of 150 ml of coffee is 80 mg for roasted and ground coffee, 65 mg for instant coffee, 3 mg for decaffeinated coffee, 60 ml espresso coffee contains an average of 100 mg caffeine. Limiting your coffee consumption to 3-4 cups will be positive for your health. If you consume decaffeinated coffee, you can increase this amount a little more.
