Mood Altering Coffee

Posted on June 20, 2022

We all have moods: mood is defined as “a conscious state of mind or predominant emotion”. Just like the weather, our moods change. We all experience bad days, but just like a good friend Coffee is always there to lift you up.
You are probably wondering right now what in the world does moods have to do with coffee? Well simply because a hot cup of joe has been scientifically proven to make coffee lovers happier. Believe it or not, coffee can alter your mood. Coffee stimulates the release of dopamine in your brain, which produces the euphoria and happy feelings we associate with our coffee experiences. Coffee also has additional health benefits, so even more reasons to get brewing!

Coffee is not only mood-altering but can improve the quality of your work and life: 

Caffeine blocks adenosine, the receptor in our body that causes drowsiness. The adenosine receptors will increase the neuron firing in your system, resulting in your pituitary glands releasing hormones that will give you adrenaline.

The adenosine in caffeine will help keep you sharp, as a result, you will be more alert and focused. Studies also show that Coffee can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Here are more benefits of coffee.

The Caffeine in coffee can:

  • Improve your mood (the anticipation of drinking coffee and actual consumption may alter your mood for the better)
  • Help relieve or help protect against depression
  • Improve working memory
  • Caffeine has a positive effect on our energy levels, it acts as an energy booster
