Is Coffee Good For You?
Find Out Whether Or Not Your Morning Cup Of Joe Has Any Health Benefits
However, a recent study that examined a wide body of research has shown that having three to four cups of coffee per day is more likely to benefit your health than harm it.
While this might seem all and great, technically one cup of coffee is 8 fluid ounces. To compare this to a typical cup of coffee, a medium iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts is 24 ounces (3 “cups” of coffee), and a large iced is 32 ounces (4 “cups” of coffee). So, keep this in mind when you think about drinking 3 or 4 cups per day.
Benefits of coffee include:
- Improved memory
- Reduced risk of chronic illness
- Protecting your liver
- Protecting yourself from some types of cancer (liver and colorectal)
One thing to keep in mind if you have never had coffee in your life is that caffeine can affect some people in a negative way. This includes heart palpitations with excessive caffeine intake, heartburn, and anxiety.
Overall, if you like coffee it will most likely do more good than harm to your body, so keep drinking it! But, if you have never had coffee or don’t like it, don’t force yourself to like it for some potential benefits.
