COFFEE AND HUMAN HEALTH

Coffee is an extremely popular and demanded drink. It is hard to imagine a day without at least one cup of coffee. Almost all of us love coffee, although many of us have heard about the harmful properties of coffee. But what do we really know about the harmful effects of coffee? Is it as harmful as it is widely believed? Or maybe it’s the opposite? Let’s try to explain this issue.

And so, the biggest argument against coffee consumption is that coffee consumption can lead to a number of cardiovascular diseases as well as heart attacks. However, a number of recent serious studies have found no direct link between coffee consumption and any cardiovascular disease. The point is that as a result of a unique gene mutation in the body of some people, the process of breaking down caffeine proceeds at a lower than normal speed, as a result of which a general metabolic disorder occurs in the body. In addition, when drinking unfiltered coffee (for example, Eastern Coffee / French Press), the fatty compounds called “Cafestrol” and “Kahweol” are not filtered from the coffee, which leads to an increase in the level of cholesterol in the blood. Cardiovascular problems may also occur if the daily dose of caffeine is exceeded.

Moreover, recent studies have shown that regular coffee consumption within acceptable limits increases mental activity, regulates blood cholesterol levels, reduces the likelihood of depression, increases physical activity, regulates blood pressure, promotes normal heart function, dramatically reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, some types of cancer, increases the content of antioxidants in the body, helps reduce excess weight and performs a number of other useful functions.

You just have to always remember that coffee, like anything else, can lead to health problems for no reason if consumed in excess. You just need to use them in moderation. The daily dose of coffee is determined mainly by the permissible dose of caffeine in the body, which is determined by the age, weight, gender and general state of health of the individual. Thus, for example, young people have a higher threshold for caffeine than members of the middle and older age group. Women have a lower tolerance limit for caffeine in the body than men because women are generally lighter in weight. For a person with average biological and physical data, 400 milligrams per day is considered to be the limit of caffeine intake.

In all cases, people with cardiovascular or any other problems are advised to consult their doctor regarding the permissible daily dose of coffee and follow his instructions.

Be healthy and enjoy your favorite coffee.
