1. Coffee is a natural nootropic, it blocks the function of adenosine, an inhibitory neurotransmitter in your brain. Thus it increases brain activity and releases other neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine. That’s why you may feel less tired and more alert.
2. According to numerous studies, caffeine may result in a short-term boost in brain function, general cognitive function, and reaction time. It also may improve mood, vigilance, metabolism and exercise performance. Coffee drinkers often build up a tolerance to such short-term effects.
3. Besides, coffee has many nutritional features worth mentioning.
