BEST TIME TO HAVE BLACK COFFEE

If you are someone who likes to start their day with bed-tea or coffee, then black coffee is probably not the best choice.

"The best time to consume black coffee, according to the experts, is between the middle and the late morning, when your cortisol level is at its lowest. If a person typically wakes up at 6:00 a.m., then the best time for them to get up would be between the hours of 9:00 and 11:00 a.m," says Shelat.

BLACK COFFEE BENEFITS

Black coffee can do wonders to your health if consumed in moderation as it not only boosts energy levels but also keeps you away from chronic diseases.

"Black coffee has been associated with many positive health benefits, from increasing concentration to reducing risk of certain diseases. Among its abundant advantages, black coffee has the power to boost energy levels and reduce stress, as it contains caffeine. Caffeine, a stimulant, works to increase alertness and reduce fatigue. Furthermore, it contains antioxidants, a beneficial compound found in coffee that helps fight the free radicals that damage cells. Not only that but it’s also known to reduce blood pressure, which can be beneficial for those with hypertension. Additionally, it can help improve memory over time, giving your brain a much-needed boost. Finally, black coffee can be beneficial to the liver, as it helps reduce damage caused by toxins," adds Shelat.
