What Can Drinking Coffee Mean For Your Health?

Author : Shelly Brayzer


Millions of people all over the world wake up each morning with a cup of coffee. While it's been long known that the stimulant properties of coffee can help some people feel more awake and alert, there are some other health effects that could arise from heavy coffee drinking. Research has shown some of the effects of drinking a moderate amount of coffee may be beneficial. Yet, some of the other side effects of coffee drinking in large amounts may be more harmful for your health than good. This article will look at some other health effects drinking coffee can have.

It has been suggested that females who consume excessive amounts of coffee can suffer from infertility and sometimes have problems with birth. There are markedly more stillbirth deliveries inwomen who say they drank coffee throughout pregnancy. Your chances of miscarriages can also be significantly higher if you drink two or more cups per day. Too much coffee during pregnancy can also cause low birth weight. Switching to decaffeinated coffee may not offer a solution, as the chemicals present in the decaffeination process may still be present in trace amounts.

Coffee however can reduce the incidences of cirrhosis of the liver by quite a bit. This condition is typically found in those suffering from chronic liver disease. These nodules typically stop liver functionality completely over time. Those who consume coffee may benefit from the caffeine's stout anti-fibrotic properties. Caffeine has also proved to lower the risk of liver cancer.

As if the health concerns of drinking coffee were not enough, there is also a cosmetic impact to consider. Coffee drinkers often suffer from teeth that are brown, yellow, or unevenly discolored by coffee. Dry skin can often be the result of dehydration by drinking too much coffee. One of the most noticeable effects of dry skin is how easily the skin on your face and hands can begin to wrinkle more quickly than those who are properly hydrated. Dehydrated or dry skin also leads to the appearance of new stretch marks or causes existing stretch marks to be more visible against the skin.

So, drinking a moderate serving of caffeine isn't overly harmful. There are health risks involved in drinking excessive amounts of any caffeinated beverage. Watch your caffeine intake. Moderation is key here.
