Is Coffee Good for Human Body?

Coffee lovers often ask themselves how to drink it correctly so that the teeth do not turn yellow, remove calcium from the body, and do not hurt the stomach? According to statistics, about 90% of the country's population starts with coffee in the morning and then drinks it during the day.

The main feature of this drink is its stimulating properties and taste. Many people drink it just because it refreshes and gives more strength during exercise. For some people, coffee is a real panacea for weakness and stress. To get rid of nervous tension and increase your activity, it is enough to drink just one cup.

Coffee beans contain antioxidants that have a positive effect on the human body and give it immense benefits. Coffee provides more oxygen to the brain, improves attention and memory. Caffeine stimulates gastric juice, which increases acidity and improves food digestion.

You can only reap the benefits of coffee for your body if you drink it in moderation. The optimal dose, which does not pose any danger to the body, is 3-4 cups a day. Symptoms of caffeine overdose can occur with excessive consumption.

Adverse effects of coffee on the human body

An overdose of coffee can seriously harm the body. If you drink more than 600 ml at a time, you will experience weakness, nausea, palpitations, and dizziness. Excess caffeine can impair consciousness and impair vision.

It is not recommended to drink coffee in case of high blood pressure, inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, and cardiac pathologies. Coffee itself does not contribute to the development of diseases but can cause organ overload and exacerbate chronic diseases.

Negative properties of coffee include the following:

  • Causes addiction.

Caffeine increases the release of the hormone serotonin, which stimulates pleasure centers. All of this leads to physical dependence, and in the case of refusal, negative factors arise

  • Harms the nervous system.

Frequent consumption of the drink causes congestion of the nervous system and the development of neurological disorders

  • Impairs libido.

Excessive consumption of the drink worsens sexual desire and impairs the reproductive system.

  • Coffee can also worsen the condition of teeth and adversely affect the stomach.

The best time to drink plain coffee is in the middle of the day when attention and concentration begin to decline. Many are accustomed to drinking coffee in the morning to wake up immediately, but this can cause vascular spasms and stomach pain. That’s why the best time for coffee is lunch. If there is an irresistible urge to drink coffee after 18:00, then you need to add condensed milk or cream.

An adult can drink no more than 100-200 ml at a time. It is allowed to drink 2-3 such cups a day. The most important thing is to drink coffee after a meal, on a full stomach, because it contains a lot of acids, which stimulates the production of gastric juice. If you drink it on an empty stomach, the acid in coffee can damage the stomach walls and cause ulcers.

Milk needs to be added to prevent calcium from leaching out of your body when you drink it. Nevertheless, doctors do not recommend drinking coffee with milk more than 3-4 times a week. Those who do not drink milk at all should not put it in coffee just because of the leaching of calcium from the body.

How to drink coffee so that your teeth do not break?

To prevent coffee from damaging your teeth whiteness, you should drink it as follows:

  • Dilute with milk. The color of the drink can affect the color of your teeth
  • Drink through a straw. This way the drink will have no chance of coming in contact with the teeth
  • Drink coffee with a small amount of caffeine.

The teeth usually turn yellow precisely because of the coffee brewed in Turkey (a cup of copper). That’s why you should pay attention to other ways to prepare it.
