1. Coffee Can Make Physical Activity Feel Easier

7. Coffee Can Prevent Ringing In The Ears (Tinnitus) In Women
Even though previously ringing in the ears was linked to the caffeine intake, the recent researches proved that coffee actually may prevent tinnitus.
This study tracked 65,000 women over a period of 18 years and found that those who drank more coffee reduced their odds of developing the condition.
Compared to women who drank one and a half cups of coffee every day, the incidence of reported tinnitus was 15% lower in women who drank five cups per day.
Drinking coffee may prevent tinnitus, or chronic ringing of the ears, according to new research from Brigham and Women’s hospital in Boston.
8. Coffee Can Improve Your Reaction Time And Logical Reasoning
As you already know, coffee is very often referenced for its positive effects on attention and mental alertness.
The conclusion of a recent study shows that a total daily dose of 800 mg caffeine during successive overnight periods of wakefulness is an effective strategy to maintain cognitive function when optimal sleep periods during the day are not available.
