Many of us have a habit of taking a delicious cup of coffee during breakfast. Some are even faster and takes it right after they wake up.
But is a cup of sweet coffee enough to start the day with? Or there are some conditions behind?
Well, it’s a tough question to answer in one word. The coffee itself, of course, boosts up the energy. But when it comes to the ‘sweet’ part of it, we have a number of things to inform you before you get the final answer.
And that’s what we’ve done exactly in this article. It explains everything from how coffee ingredients affect your mood, and what is the right combination to make a cup of perfect morning coffee.
Without further delay, let’s get going-
What Is The Best Time to Have The Morning Coffee?
You might have noticed that a good, tasty cup of coffee doesn’t serve with an equal amount of boost and energy all the time. With one or two hours or break, two consecutive cups of coffee don’t give an expected level of benefit.
But when it’s the morning, things seem to be a little more different. You can see, you’re there after 6-8 hours of sleep. And Cortison Release(explained in the next section) is the highest at that moment.
Having a coffee breakfast within 30-50 minutes of your waking up will definitely give you a hit. A journal study of 2009 says that the best time to drink the first coffee of the day is around 8 to 9 am.
The same research also says the time table for other coffees except for the morning one. The cortisone count of the body is also high between 12 pm to 1 pm, 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm as well.
That also shows us the recommended times to drink the other 2-3 cups of the day.
Sweet and Caffeine: How Do Our Bodies React To Each?
To understand how a sweet cup of morning coffee would be your thing or not, let’s break down the key tastes of a coffee into sweetness and caffeine. In this segment of the article, we will be going through a broken down discussion on how our body reacts for each of these two tastes.
Our Body’s Reaction to Caffeine
Our reaction to the caffeine has a lot of stuff to do with cortisol. Cortisone is a hormone of our body which has the responsibility to respond to stresses and alertness.
When you are tired and stressed, the level of your Cortisone will be high. Just what happens when you have a dozy morning.
But right after you take the first sip of a strong, black coffee, the level of Cortisone starts falling down. Eventually, your body takes it as a replacement of the Cortisone and keeps you alert and strong while you drink the morning coffee.
By the way, if your body gets used to too regular consumption of coffee of strong caffeine count, that eventually discourages to take caffeine as a replacement of Cortisol anymore.
So, you can see, sometimes even the strongest cup of coffee doesn’t help to overcome the stress. But as long as the morning coffee is considered, that’s not likely to take place.
Our Body’s Reaction to Sugar
Now, this is the part, where I would request you to be a bit attentive.
According to research, it has been found that over-consumption of sugar might sabotage your happy and jolly mood on a frequent basis. As it has an adverse effect on psychological health, it won’t give you strong support to be energetic at all.
Research from Mark Hyman had been illustrated in his book called ‘What the Heck Should I Eat?’. He has explained how sugar is the ‘Toxic Drug Dose’ for any human body.
And the sad part is, almost one-third of the American people are addicted to this toxic drug without even an acknowledgement of it.
The same thing works for the sugar you are likely to take for the morning breakfast. All the perk it gives you is a good taste for your taste bud. But in return, the amount of disadvantages that come with it is quite dangerous.
Is Sweet Coffee Perfect to Start Your Morning With?
This is the question you actually looking an answer for, right? Well, we will tell you.
As you have seen in the previous segments, having morning coffee is great. It increases your energy, decreased your Cortisone level and prepares you for the hectic day ahead.
But the other part of the coffee is the ‘sweet’, which contains frothed milk and sugar. And that’s the place where all the mysteries lie.
As you can see, sugar consumption has some negative impacts on your body. Many of these impacts are long term, and you won’t have an instant understanding of it.
But some effect of sugar consumption is instant, and it affects your mood as well. Many kinds of research had found that a food habit with too much sugar consumption can bring on anxiety and depressions. And there is no way that the couple of sugar spoons that you add on your morning coffee, is another culprit behind.
So, what is the final answer? Is Sweet coffee perfect for my body?
Well, that’s a partially NO. Because, in a cup of ‘sweet’ coffee, you would have mixed both coffee and sugar together. And they have kind of opposite effects to bring your mood up.
But if you can deduce the amount of sugar by a significant amount or no amount at all, that can be something very impactful for the mood.
So, black coffee, or coffee with calorie-free sugar(tiny amount) will be great to start the day with.
The Bottom Line
So, that’s the wrap-up. As you can see, sweet coffees are not the best thing to have in the morning. Instead, black coffee or coffee with a minimal amount of calorie-free sugar is what we would like you to go for.
