Coffee is a potent source of healthful antioxidants.
In fact, coffee shows more antioxidant activity than green tea and cocoa, two antioxidant superstars. Scientists have identified approximately 1,000 antioxidants in unprocessed coffee beans, and hundreds more develop during the roasting process. Numerous studies have cited coffee as a major — and in some cases, the primary — dietary source of antioxidants for its subjects.
How it works: Antioxidants fight inflammation, an underlying cause of many chronic conditions, including arthritis, atherosclerosis and many types of cancer. They also neutralize free radicals, which occur naturally as a part of everyday metabolic functions, but which can cause oxidative stress that leads to chronic disease. In other words, antioxidants help keep us healthy at the micro-level by protecting our cells from damage. Finally, chlorogenic acid, an important antioxidant found almost exclusively in coffee, is also thought to help prevent cardiovascular disease.

💥THE TRUTH ABOUT CAFFEINE💥
The answer is that you don't need caffeine before your workouts, but it can definitely help! Caffeine is the primary "energy boost" in pre workouts that will give you that extra kick which will help you perform better in the gym.
For many people it gives them that edge and signal to their bodies that "Hey, its time to workout now." Which definitely can be important and useful for a lot of people.
But how much is too much?
Some pre workouts have huge amounts of caffeine in them. The standard recommendation is that a healthy adult can consume about 400mg per day (~4 cups of coffee)and see no ill side effects. This will drastically depend however on how sensitive you're to caffeine. Some people will feel way more of the effects than others.
If you have cardiovascular issues or other health conditions, is best to consult your doctor on what the best recommendations are for you, and possibly avoid caffeine altogether.
But what is the BEST amount to take before a workout? This will 100% depend on your sensitivity and tolerance to caffeine. Some research has pointed to 180mg being a great dose for performance, but this is only one study. You have to experiment with yourself to see what you feel the best on and can perform with.
So at the end of the day caffeine is a great and effective supplement to boost workout performance. However, the best amount for you will be based on your current health, sensitivity, and preference!
