Your overall mood might improve
In addition to preventing diseases, coffee’s caffeine content is directly correlated with your brain. These effects are especially seen at low levels of consumption (about 75 mg). According to Witherspoon, “Caffeine has been associated with positive actions on the brain, including improved mental alertness and attention, help with concentration, and improved mood.” On the note of an improved mood and, ultimately, a decrease in depression, according to the AARP, “Coffee cuts suicide risk. A 2013 study by Harvard’s School of Public Health found that those who drank two to three cups of caffeinated coffee a day cut their suicide risk by 45 percent—possibly because caffeine’s stimulant effect helps boost people’s moods.” Learn more about how coffee can make you less depressed.
It might enhance memory retention
While caffeine’s positive effect on alertness, attention, concentration, and mood is not such a surprise, its ability to enhance memory retention is based on a fairly new study. According to the journal Nature Neuroscience, “Caffeine enhanced performance 24 hours after administration…We conclude that caffeine enhanced consolidation of long-term memories in humans.” It is important to note that more caffeine is not necessarily better nor will it always prove to have a positive impact on productivity.
