“Health Elixir” BURNS MORE Fat!
Let’s face it: When you exercise, you want to get results.
You want to boost your aerobic capacity, burn fat, build muscle, lose/maintain weight, and boost your heart health.
Now exercise can do all of that for you… and more.
But if you’re looking to burn more, you’re in luck.
Because if you drink this health elixir 30 minutes before exercising, you’ll get even more bang for your buck.
Caffeine has a long list of health benefits, like increasing alertness and boosting cognitive function.
It has even been tied to a longer lifespan.
But did you know that it can help with exercise performance, too?
Studies have shown that caffeine boosts exercise performance by enhancing aerobic power, aerobic endurance, muscle endurance, and strength.
But can it help you burn fat, too?
To find out, researchers conducted a triple-blind, placebo-controlled study with 15 men around 32 years old.
They completed an exercise test four times (twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon), with seven days between each test.
Thirty minutes before each test, they consumed either 3 mg per kilogram of body weight of caffeine (basically the amount in a strong cup of coffee) or a placebo.
Consuming the caffeine led to an increase in MFO (maximal fat oxidation rate) and VO2max (maximal oxygen uptake) during both the morning and afternoon exercise
However, the morning exercise tests showed an even greater increase in MFO and VO2max.
MFO is the process that occurs when you burn fat.
So a higher MFO means your body is burning more fat.
And VO2max is an indicator of your endurance capacity.
There’s a saying that goes: Work smarter, not harder.
Personally, I like to work smart and hard.
Giving your body a natural boost to get the most out of your exercise session is a great way to do both.
This was a small study, so I’d like to see a larger trial confirm these results.
But both coffee and caffeine have enough other health benefits to warrant adding coffee to your day.
And if you can drink it 30 minutes before you exercise, even better.
P.S. Coffee has all kinds of great benefits for your health. Click here and learn how it can SLASH your risk of heart failure.

There are two words that send shivers down everyone’s spine: Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a condition that’s characterized by a buildup of toxic beta-amyloid plaques in your brain. They interfere with the communication between neurons in your brain, and they lead to the death of neurons. It’s a devastating double-whammy. But a recent study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that nature’s “green secret” could be...
Overall, cancer is on the decline. That’s the good news. But the bad news is that it could be declining MUCH faster than it actually is. Nearly 10 million people still die every year from this disease. But there’s one simple step you can take — starting today — to help keep you from being one of those 10 million. It’ll help you beat the “biggest...
Whether you have type 2 diabetes or not, you should be paying attention to your blood sugar levels. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, high blood sugar levels can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, nerve problems, and more — even if you don’t have diabetes. Fortunately, you don’t have to swear off...
COVID-19 is finally on the decline — and it’s about time. As we speak, mask-wearing mandates are being lifted in many states. But that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. In fact, it means you need to be taking even more steps on your own to make sure you’re protected. Like loading up on one key nutrient that could decrease your risk of severe complications if you ever do get COVID-19. A...
Alzheimer’s is devastating for the patient AND for his or her loved ones. Although there is no cure, many recent studies have offered a ray of hope for everyone affected by this disease — whether you’re the patient or their loved one. In fact, in one recent study, researchers identified a natural compound that can reverse some of the most devastating memory effects of Alzheimer’s. It’s one of the biggest breakthroughs...
Let’s face it, we all know people who “look great for their age.” Well, here’s a crazy idea: What if we took our biological age and threw it out the window. Because frankly, instead of accepting aging as a part of life, I’d rather focus on vitality at any age (NOT vitality despite my age!). There are plenty of lifestyle change you can...
Make no mistake about it: Medicine is big business. I wish most doctors and medical organizations made decisions based on the patient’s best interests — as opposed to the bottom line… But too often that’s not the case. What does that mean for you? It means you could be counseled to get a procedure or a surgery that you DON’T need. Because let’s face it, mainstream...
When it comes to COVID-19, you should be doing whatever it takes to lower your risk — especially if you’re an older adult. According to the CDC, 8 out of 10 COVID-19 deaths have been in people over 65. And, compared to people 5-17 years old, the rate of death in folks from 65-74 is 1300 TIMES HIGHER. That’s not a typo. But whatever your age, you can do...
There’s no doubt that what you eat impacts your physical health. But food’s impact on your mental and emotional wellbeing is just as powerful. There are plenty of reasons for this connection. A big one is because your gut contains neurons, and serotonin (the neurotransmitter that’s involved in depression and anxiety) is particularly abundant in your gut. Personally, I find that fascinating. Plus,...
You know by now that type 2 diabetes can increase your risk of heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, nerve damage, amputations, and much more. But if you “only” have pre-diabetes, you might be tempted to think that you’re in the clear. Not so fast. Why? Because a recent study found out that these hidden dangers of pre-diabetes could be just as deadly as diabetes itself. Prediabetes is considered...
