The most consumed beverage in the world is calorie free, maintains alertness and makes you feel great. But there’s more.
We know that up to five cups of coffee is not associated to health risk (five cups are about 400 milligrams of caffeine per day). Moderated caffeine consumption isn’t associated to health risk, on the contrary, is associated to reduce risk of:
- cardiovascular disorders,
- cerebrovascular disorders,
- diabetes type 2
- or degenerative disorders.
But is there anything wrong with drinking coffee? There are some risks, though. Depending on the time of day it could provoke insomnia. Also there is a potential increase in blood pressure, and it’s not recommended to people with glaucoma. So! As ever happens: be a conscious consumer and balance pros and cons.
