Coffee is a tasty treat for millions of people around the world, and there’s plenty of people that will tell you that coffee is bad for you – but I’m here to tell you that coffee is good for…at least in moderation. So I’ve compiled a list of positive effects that coffee has on your body so that you can feel better about having your morning cup ‘o joe.

Studies have shown that coffee not only wakes us up in the morning and gives us that extra boost to get going, but it also has plenty of positive health effects too. Here’s a short list of some of the positive health effects of coffee:

  • The caffeine boosts your mood and increases your intellectual activity when you’re fatigued – so have a cup ‘o joe before your next big test!
  • Coffee helps protect against cirrhosis of the live, and it has a positive effect against colon cancer.
  • It lowers the risk of dementia in the elderly.
  • Coffee has 4 times the anti-oxidants of green tea!
  • Coffee may be linked to reduced incidences of kidney stones, bladder cancer in smokers, and type 2 diabetes.
  • The FDA considers caffeine to be “generally recognized as safe”.
  • Approximately 3 cups of coffee contains about 5 grams of fiber.

From my research about coffee, I have come to the conclusion that most experts believe that about 3 cups of coffee per day is a safe way to go. Less is fine, more could get unhealthy. So enjoy your cup of coffee tomorrow morning and remember that you’re doing something good for your body today. And by the way…NO, coffee does not stunt your growth or put hair on your chest – So my uncle was wrong all those years!!
