3 Health Effects Drinking Coffee Can Have

Author : Shelly Brayzer

There are of course many people who swear not to touch coffee because of the negative health effects they believe it can have on them. There are actually a few benefits to the moderate consumption of coffee like the reduction of risk of some illnesses and diseases. Of course many people simply drink coffee in an attempt to gain some alertness, energy and overall vigor throughout their day. Despite the research showing that there really are some positive health effects to drinking coffee, there are also some negative effects that could emerge from excessive consumption. This article will look at some of the potential health effects drinking coffee could have on you.

Short term memory is one of the first positive effects many people experience from drinking coffee. Coffee beans contain an ingredient that actually stimulates short-term memory. This is widely abused by students facing exams.

Research additionally indicates that students who consume moderate amounts of coffee have slightly better test scores than those who do not. Among those over the age of 80, studies have shown that drinking coffee can lead to improved cognitive memory functions. In addition, coffee is believed to reduce the risk of developing diseases that impact memory like dementia and Alzheimer's. Drinking coffee has also been linked to a reduction in the risk of developing gout in men. Gout is a painful inflammation in the joints that happens on a recurring basis. Gout is often considered a condition of the big toe but the truth is it can effect the ankles, legs, arms, and fingers as well. The end result is joints that are tender and painful that may or may not be red and swollen. The high levels of uric acid in the body that cause gout is also commonly associated with kidney stones. Yet research has shown that drinking coffee can decrease the incidence of gout by helping to reduce uric acid levels.

In addition to the health impact of coffee there is an impact on beauty that you should be aware of. Regularly consuming coffee can lead to stained teeth that are brown, yellow, or unevenly colored. Consuming large amounts of coffee also leads to dehydration a symptom of which is dry skin. Drinking regular coffee can also lead to dehydration and dry skin. Dehydration by drinking regular coffee can also lead to excessively dry skin. 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. New stretch marks or an increased prominence in existing stretch marks is another sign of dry skin. Drinking coffee in moderation does lead to some significant health benefits. The problem is that there are just as many problems associated with drinking too much coffee. Drinking no more than two cups of coffee a day is the only way to ensure that you'll be able to enjoy the many health benefits drinking coffee can provide.
