March 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Studies show that coffee could benefit us more than just giving us a caffeine boost.  Although excessive consumption is associated with cardiovascular problems, increased heart rate and high blood pressure, experts agree that the good outweigh the bad for most people.

Like chocolate and wine, coffee has in the past been associated with being unhealthy but that is not strictly true.  There is evidence that coffee is good for you in two main ways, firstly it contains antioxidants which are formed during the roasting process and secondly caffeine, both have health and anti aging benefits. Antioxidants can help your body repair damage to cells and caffeine has been shown to help improve a range of age related brain problems and may even be important in fighting of Parkinson’s Disease.

We all know that a cup of coffee helps to clear the cobwebs away and focus better which is generally why we drink it in the first place.  There are other health benefits such as reducing the risk of getting of Type II diabetes.  It has been found that people who consumed up to 7 cups of coffee have a 50% less chance of getting diabetes than non drinkers.

Although the reason is not known, coffee does seem to increase the effectiveness of headache remedies, and today a number of pain relievers include caffeine.  It can also improve cognitive performance and helps with short term memory.   Even decaffeinated coffee has shown to prevent gall stones from forming in both men and women.  Other benefits include reducing the incidence of cirrhosis of the liver, cancer in the liver and prostrate cancer.  

Whilst the above is all positive it should be remembered that there are some negatives, strong coffee can damage the gastrointestinal tract and drinking too much coffee can over stimulate you causing irritability.   It is also not a great idea to drink before bed and pregnant women are encouraged not to drink coffee as the caffeine can cross to the baby through the placenta.

So as with most things in life it appears that moderation is the key, coffee ( does have health benefits but too much of a good thing and the scales can tip.  All together the benefits outweigh the disadvantages so moderate consumption is called for.   Although go steady on the milk and sugar, but that’s a whole new conversation.
