Coffee is one of the things that millions of Americans start their day.
It is warm, tempting, full of caffeine and offers much-needed pick-me-up to start your day.
But what happened inside your body when you drink this, Joe? Do you drink something that is beneficial to you in the long run, or replenishes your body with harmful substances? This is what science means about different views on this topic — good and not so good.
First of all, the benefits
1.Protection against a lot of types of cancers
Several studies have been conducted on the protection of different types of cancer to see if the carcinogenic properties of coffee are related to the development of cancer, links that researchers have never been able to find.
However, some studies, including some references to the American Cancer Association, have found that coffee really prevents many cancers.
ACS website states that “coffee can reduce the risk of cancer including head and neck cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, and liver cancer.
Hundreds of biologically active compounds have been found in roasted coffee, including caffeine, flavonoids, lignin, and other polyphenols.
These and other coffee compounds have been shown to increase energy consumption, inhibit cell damage, regulate genes involved in DNA repair, have anti-inflammatory properties and/or inhibit metastasis, etc.
2. It can reduce your risk of suicide.
Recently, suicide rates have been rising, leading millions — even billions — around the world to find answers on how to stop the devastating effects of the epidemic.
It is difficult for anyone or anyone to claim a “cure” of this.
Still, researchers find a correlation between coffee consumption and suicide risk reduction.
A study by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health noted that caffeine could be the reason behind the results
The authors of the study found that the suicide rate of adults who drink two to four cups of caffeinated coffee a day was about half that of those who drank coffee with caffeine or with little or no coffee.
Studies also found that caffeine contained in coffee not only stimulates the central nervous system but also acts as a mild antidepressant by promoting the production of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, such as norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin.
Caffeine essentially improves people’s mood
3. Reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
If you have many years of experience, enjoy a cup of coffee here and there, even up to five cups a day, you can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
In fact, a recent study found that middle-aged people drink 3-5 cups a day, with dementia and Alzheimer’s risk reduced by approximately 65%.
4. May reduces risk of type 2 diabetes
Harvard researchers have studied more than 100,000 people for nearly 20 years to discover the relationship between coffee and reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.
They found that those who increase their coffee consumption by more than one cup a day have a reduced risk of developing the disease by 11%.
They also found that reducing the intake of one cup of coffee a day increases the risk of T2 diabetes by 17%.
Although researchers do not know the exact cause, they suspect that this has nothing to do with caffeine, since stimulants are actually associated with changes in glucose and insulin levels.
Your body’s reaction to caffeine really depends on how your body metabolizes it.
Either way, caffeine has found to be a negative factor in blood sugar, which leads to expert advice if you have to drink coffee to do it 10 times.
Now, bad news
You may be addicted, coffee contains a lot of caffeine.
In fact, a cup of coffee contains 95 mg of caffeine, which is more than enough to get up and go in the morning.
In fact, however, caffeine is a drug, so it is an addictive chemical that can create dependence.
Continuous research on the topic of caffeine addiction leads medical professionals to give formal terms called conditions, caffeine consumption disorders.
People with this disease have behavioral and physiological patterns similar to those produced by other drug dependence.
2. You could have more frequent urination
Over the years, people even experts have appointed coffee diuretics, trying to explain why many people who often drink coffee often urinate.
Continuous research does not treat coffee as an ingredient that helps urine frequently, and the fact that when you drink more, you urinate more.
So, if you drink a lot of coffee, expect plenty of fluids to go to other liquids – empty when your bladder is full.
3. Caffeine could lose you sleep
Caffeine is a stimulant that is most often used to keep you on a regularly tired day.
And, most people know this and drink voluntarily.
Having said that, if you drink, say, in the evening, you can expect a wide awakening before going to bed.
In fact, one study found that eating caffeine 6 hours before bedtime reduces the total sleep time by one hour.
These effects can also be stronger for older people because their body takes a long time to deal with caffeine.
4. It may have a negative impact on your bones
Now, this is a bit controversial and groundless but read on.
Over the years, there have been reports of a large number of people drinking coffee, a decrease in bone mass and a general fragility of the skeletal system.
Thanks to this, various medical professionals and scientists have suspected that caffeine has a negative impact on calcium absorption.
However, no concrete evidence was found that led researchers to argue that this correlation is simply because people who drink coffee in the diet do not receive enough calcium.
So you can drink less coffee, or you can balance calcium-rich foods with dairy, almonds, broccoli or Arthur.
5. It can cause or worsen acid reflux
Many coffee drinkers complain of acid reflux, reporting it will deteriorate after drinking coffee.
