Coffee is a part of our daily life and we just don?t know how to live without it, that?s why we dedicated September 29 to coffee lovers and made it ?National Coffee Day.? Coffee veterans know just how the drink can help you in times of great need, that?s why we want to let those non-coffee drinkers know how a cup of coffee has its own advantage and health benefits to give you an idea how coffee can help you in your everyday routine.

Improves energy levels and make you smarter

You read it right, coffee actually makes you feel less tired and can increase your energy levels if you drink just the right amount. According to Authority Nutrition, coffee contains a stimulant called caffeine that makes its way to your brain that enhances the firing of neurons. This lets you improve various aspects of brain function including ?memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction time, and general cognitive function.?

Helps you burn fat

Caffeine can also increase the burning of fat by as much as 10% for obese people and 29% in lean individuals, Authority Nutrition says. It boosts your metabolic rate which can give you that dream body you want.

Drastically improves physical performance

According to Authority Nutrition, ?caffeine stimulates the nervous system, causing it to send signals to the fat cell to break down body fat.? Long story short, it gives you the boost you need to train your body and give it the exercise it need. So if you?re thinking of going to the gym, try to take a strong cup of coffee half an hour before you head there.

Fights depression and makes you happier

?Depression is a serious mental disorder that causes a significantly reduced quality of life,? according to Authority Nutrition. Coffee helps in reducing the risk of depression and gives you a peaceful state of mind. A Harvard study in 2011, according to Authority Nutrition, showed that women who take 4 or more cups of coffee in a day ?had a 20% lower risk of becoming depressed.?

So try to start your day right and drink a hot cup of coffee.
