So why black coffee? Black coffee, just coffee and water, offers all the benefits we just discussed above while leaving out the not so good stuff like sugar, fat, artificial flavors and artificial sweeteners. While its ok to have your favorite coffee drink treat once in a while, to truly get the maximum benefits from drinking coffee on a regular basis, we need to be sure we are not racking up tons of calories in the process. An 8 ounce (230 grams) cup of black coffee by itself consists of about:
- 2 calories
- 60-150 milligrams of caffeine
- 0.1 grams carbohydrates (carbs)
- 0.3 grams protein
- 0.05 grams fat (mostly monosaturated fat, the good kind)
But that’s not why you clicked on this article is it?
Coffee is known to increase blood flow and increase alertness and energy levels. This boost can help to increase sexual performance by reducing fatigue, enhancing awareness and responsiveness to mental and sexual stimulation, making you more engaged in connecting with a partner. In addition, increased blood flow can reduce the prevalence of ED. Afterall, if you’re wiped out from the daily grind, you are less likely to be up for an activity which requires energy to perform, and freedom from fatigue to enjoy.
How much coffee should on drink for better sex? Most studies indicate that drinking 2 to 3 8-ounce cups of coffee per day can enhance performance in both sexes and result in more intense orgasms. For peak results, coffee should be consumed 30-60 minutes before engaging in sex, to allow for the full effect to take hold.
