Kaffee fördert Deine Bewegung

Coffee encourages your movement

A new study from March 2023 found that above-average coffee consumption increases physical activity.

The study was approved by the institutional review board of the University of California, San Francisco and consisted of 100 participants with a mean age of 39 years. In a random pattern, participants were asked to consume caffeinated coffee or to avoid caffeine. The rule was that if coffee was consumed on two days, no coffee could be consumed on the following two days.

How did the measurements go?

The number of steps and sleep duration were measured using Bluetooth measuring devices on the wrist. On days when coffee was consumed, participants walked an average of 1,000 more steps per day than on days without coffee consumption. However, sleep duration decreased by 39 minutes on days with coffee consumption.

However, care must be taken here that the metabolism, i.e. the processing of caffeine in the body, is very individual and therefore has different effects on people.

Our conclusion from the study

Overall, it shows that physical activity is an important factor for health and therefore longevity and coffee consumption can have a positive influence on physical exercise.

So we can look forward to our coffee every day and the additional physical exercise it promotes. Find your favorite coffee and try out the My Coffee Cup Grand Selection.
