The perfect start to the day for me, I guess, starts with a sip of good coffee. It is a fact that we all know as coffee lovers that drinking coffee has such effects. Coffee, one of the most consumed beverages in the world, has positive effects on mood, memory, and psychomotor performance.
While walking around the streets of the city, the smell of coffee coming from a cafe automatically draws me to that place and I want to sit down and have a cup of coffee right away. But what is this attraction in the smell of coffee? How can a scent be so attractive? Or how does it make us feel?
Here I pursued these questions for you.
The olfactory system regulates the brain that controls emotional memory. Whether you are a coffee connoisseur or just an ordinary person like me who enjoys drinking coffee. You can’t deny that the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning is refreshing. Studies show that it is almost impossible to taste coffee without a sense of smell.
Scientific studies have shown us that 80 percent of the flavor comes from what we smell. And again, research shows that our taste buds can only distinguish between sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami flavors. The remaining flavors are actually distinguished by our sense of smell. So we actually smell most of the things we taste. In addition, research has concluded that the possible potentiating effects of coffee may not be due to caffeine per se, but to the pleasant aroma and taste of coffee.
Smelling coffee not only activates certain genes and proteins that allow you to better cope with stress but basically helps give you the emotional response you want if you create a positively charged emotional environment. Good and beautiful feelings.
Researchers from the Stevens School of Business, Temple University, and Baruch College have shown us that this is possible. Research has tested the ability of more than 100 students to answer GMAT math questions. The results were tremendous. The students who answered the questions in the coffee-scented room performed significantly better than the other students. Therefore, the researchers concluded that the smell of coffee alone was sufficient to improve sustained attention, quality, memory, mood, and alertness.
In addition, he made evaluations about a coffee that is not one of the educational institutions. The results were of course surprising. The caffeine content was also sufficient to drink coffee.
Inhaling the smell of coffee improved cognitive parameters such as sustained attention, memory quality, and memory speed, and also increased the mood score of alertness. Studies show that one inhalation of the smell of coffee can strengthen working memory and trigger a state of alertness. In other words, even breathing the smell of coffee alone can keep us awake.
