For All You Early Risers

Coffee

It is no secret that a cup or two of coffee to start the day can really improve your energy and endurance, but just how beneficial could a morning brew be to you?

Not only does the caffeine in coffee lead to a heightened level of energy, but this stimulant can also improve your mood and memory throughout the day.  Caffeine in the brain blocks the inhibitory neurotransmitter Adenosine, which actually increases dopamine and the firing of neurons.  Simply speaking, a bit of coffee in your system will get your brain moving a little quicker and will amp up your smarts.

Another benefit to a morning perk is the fat-burning properties in a cup.  Coffee boosts your metabolic rate by 3-11%, so you will shed more weight and fat will burn off quicker.

Not only can a cup of joe start your morning off with more energy, it can help your brain and your body.  Next time you need a morning pick-me-up, don’t forget all the benefits (not to mention the great taste) of a Huckleberry’s roast coffee.
