Is drinking coffee good or bad for you? Read the article to find out.

Coffee is a a usual part of our daily lives. Most people drink coffee to start the day right.


However, the health effects of coffee are quite controversial. Experts have a lot to say about the pros and cons of drinking coffee.

Coffee contains antioxidant that helps us reduce the chance of getting sick.

However, coffee also contains caffeine which stimulates sleep deprivation.

Here are more pros of drinking coffee.

1. Coffee contains some essential nutrients and is extremely high in antioxidants. An average person who eats a typical Western diet actually gets more antioxidants from coffee than fruits and vegetables.
2. The main active compound in coffee is the stimulant caffeine. It can cause a short-term boost in energy levels, brain function, metabolic rate and exercise performance.
3. Several studies show that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease in old age.
4. Numerous studies have shown that coffee drinkers have a significantly lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
5. Coffee drinkers have a significantly lower risk of cirrhosis and liver cancer. The more coffee they drink, the lower the risk.
6. Studies have shown that people who drink coffee have a lower risk of becoming depressed and are significantly less likely to commit suicide.
7. Some studies have shown that coffee drinkers live longer, which makes perfect sense given that they have a lower risk of many diseases. The strongest effect is seen for 4-5 cups per day.

On the other hand, here are the cons of drinking coffee.

1. Caffeine can have various negative effects, such as causing anxiety and disrupting sleep, but this depends greatly on the individual.
2. Caffeine is an addictive substance. It can lead to tolerance and well documented withdrawal symptoms like headache, tiredness and irritability.

After knowing the benefits, you might ask yourself, 'Should I drink coffee?' The answer is yes. You should be drinking coffee but in moderation.

If you don’t already drink coffee, then I don’t think these benefits are a compelling reason to start doing it. There are downsides as well.

But if you already drink coffee and you enjoy it, then the benefits appear to far outweigh the negatives.
