What Are The Health Benefits Of Drinking Coffee?

Author : Shelly Brayzer

Every day, millions of people all over the world get up with a cup of coffee. Although it is known that coffee has properties that stimulate and can help a few people feel more alert, there are a few other health concerns that have come about from drinking too much coffee. Studies have shown some of the results of drinking coffee in moderate amounts may be advantageous to us. But on the other hand, some of the other effects of drinking plenty of coffee might not be good for your health. This article will explore a few of the other health effects that drinking coffee may have.

Around the world, the stimulant effect of coffee is well known. It can help make them feel more alert and more awake. It is widely used after a restless nights' sleep. However, in susceptible people, coffee can overstimulate the nervous system. Symptoms of overstimulation included signs of anxiety and irritability. Another effect of overstimulation is that it reduces your ability to deal with stress making the anxiety symptoms even more noticeable. More health problems may be discovered, with consistent overstimulation, through the exhaustion of the adrenal glands.

There is a slightly lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes among coffee drinkers. Some studies show that the risk reduction is as much as 50% for people who drink 2 cups of coffee daily. It's thought that caffeine can actually decrease insulin sensitivity in patients.

On the other hand, some people can develop hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, as a result. The symptoms are unpleasant and my include sweating, clammy skin, weakness, and heart palpitations. It's strongly advised that people already diagnosed with diabetes avoid coffee altogether.

Women who drink too much coffee are often beset by anemia or an iron deficiency according to research. This is because too much coffee can inhibit the body's ability to absorb iron effectively. The body needs to maintain certain iron levels for many different reasons. Not only does iron help to carry oxygen to the body and the lungs, but it's also an integral part of many enzyme reactions. Iron is a key ingredient for keeping infections from running rampant in the body. Iron deficiencies have a largely negative impact on almost everything the body does. Anemia and constant fatigue are common results of prolonged iron deficiencies.

Despite the fact that there are noteworthy benefits for drinking coffee there still remain a few negative effects to watch out for. Avoid the possible risks by only drinking coffee in moderation. You'll be enjoying some of the recently discovered health benefits and avoiding some of the negative effects by moderating the amount you drink.
