Too much coffee in pregnancy isn't healthy
Caffeine can have a negative effect on your baby. Everything you eat or drink during those 9 blessed months will reach the fetus. Now, everything can be used in moderate amounts and so can coffee. You're allowed to drink 1 cup of coffee a day, but it would be much healthier if you use decaf or avoid this black nectar for a while.
Too much coffee can kill you
No, I don't mean 3-4 cups a day; the number is much higher. Studies say if you drink 100 cups of coffee in a short period you will accumulate 10-13 grams of caffeine in your organism. That's a lethal dose! Too much of everything can't be good for you. Just imagine what 23 liters of coffee can do to you. Or better, don't; it's not a pleasant scenario.
Coffee causes insomnia
We're all familiar with this fact, right? If you need to stay awake, have a cup of coffee. Again, it's the caffeine that keeps the train going on. The recommended maximum is about 4 cups of coffee. If you want to sleep tonight, don't go over that limit. In fact, don't drink coffee late. Those of you who are caffeine-sensitive might experience lack of sleep and restlessness.
Bad coffee is BAD for you
No wonder you're feeling sick after a cup of coffee. Ladies, don't worry, you're not pregnant. This feeling can happen if you have a cup of impure coffee. All it takes is one ruined bean to make your batch a bad one. How to avoid this? Buy nice quality coffee. It's a bit more expensive, but you're paying for the quality.
Coffee can reduce risks of cancer
Now, let's talk about the good stuff. Coffee isn't all bad; there are a lot of positive effects of this dark aroma. Studies have shown that one cup of coffee a day can reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men and endometrial cancer in women. Better safe than sorry (sips from a giant coffee mug).
Coffee helps with weight loss
Caffeine will help with breaking body fat cells. Coffee also contains a healthy dose of magnesium and potassium which help to regulate blood sugar level. Once your blood sugar is on a recommended level, you'll find the cravings for artificial sugar and snacks less present.
Caffeine is a fuel
One cup of black coffee before working out can boost your energy and get you better performance. Caffeine increases adrenaline level in your blood which helps the body to control hormones. Once your body is ready for an exercise, you'll get much better results. Don't run away from coffee; embrace its benefits, but don't forget to be cautious.
