Ever heard that coffee is a ‘winter’ drink? Millions of people around the world have coffee every day, in the summer and winter! Despite what you’ve heard, coffee isn’t actually bad for you in the summer. It doesn’t adversely affect your hair and skin, and it certainly doesn’t dehydrate you. In fact, a hot cup of coffee can actually be good for the body (and the soul!). Here are 4 reasons why drinking coffee in the summer can benefit your health.

Benefits of coffee to the skin

Thanks to the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory action in coffee beans, caffeine and chlorogenic acids effectively protect the skin from UV-induced damage.

Furthermore, the caffeine in coffee beans can help reduce inflammation due to skin problems, like eczema, acne and psoriasis.

Nutritional benefits of coffee

Black coffee contains several micronutrients, like potassium, magnesium and niacin, and has very low levels of sodium. Regular coffee consumption has also been linked to lowering certain types of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Dementia and other cardiovascular diseases.

Caffeine favours fat burning

Caffeine increases the metabolic rate of the body, especially when combined with exercise. Caffeine also boosts the release of oxidative-free fatty acid in the bloodstream, which means it allows the body to convert fat to energy.

Increases energy levels and alertness

Sounds obvious, but caffeine helps trigger the release of a natural chemical in the body called norepinephrine, which helps boost your energy levels and keeps you alert.

So why has coffee officially been branded as a winter drink that’s not to be consumed in summers in Pakistan? Who knows! What’s important is that this misconception is finally buried, so that you can enjoy your cup of coffee on a warm July morning in peace.
