Why do we love coffee?

While you my friends drinking your morning coffee...
Coffee is definitely the most popular stimulant in the world, and some even say that the coffee day will be. So it's easy to love, and doctors warn that this fragrant dark drink bad effect on health.

However, not everything is black and white. Coffee has a dark side, its consumption brings some positive effects.

The reasons why coffee is good:

1 In opstipation

Coffee on the body acts as a laxative. It accelerates and stimulates the emptying of the bladder and bowel function. That is why there is often a list of foods for different diets.

2 In asthma

Did you know that coffee helps people who have asthma? During an asthma attack (even in severe cases) is sufficient to take a cup of strong coffee. Why? A large amount of caffeine, whose chemical formula similar to theophylline - Asthma - will help expand the airways.

3 For better memory

We all know that caffeine increases alertness, reduces the symptoms of fatigue and even improves memory.Caffeine usually feels good and helps improve concentration. Interestingly, these effects were short-lived.

Research School of Medicine in Lisbon revealed that seniors who drink at least 3 cups of coffee a day had a better memory than those who drank coffee in small quantities.

4 It contains a lot of antioxidants

Antioxidants are always good news for acting against free radicals, which means that coffee actually helps to rejuvenate and acts against inflammation. These effects do not decrease even if you drink coffee with milk.

5 Often bothering you a headache?

Then coffee for you is not a sin, but a medicine. Caffeine reduces the dilation of blood vessels and thus helps in relieving headaches. (Caffeine can even be found in some medication to relieve the pain.)

Unfortunately, this advice does not apply to people who already drink a lot of coffee every day, because the lack of caffeine can also cause headaches - creating a sort of vicious circle.

The reasons why coffee is not good:

1 Accelerates the occurrence of osteoporosis

The joint action of caffeine and vitamins, especially vitamin D, prevents the absorption of calcium in the body. But not to worry, that this would have an effect on you, you should really drink a lot of coffee every day.

2 Increases anxiety

Although anxiety disorders are hereditary, and affects coffee increases anxiety. Also, if overused, can cause restless sleep and bad, because of its effectiveness in reducing fatigue and sleepiness. In fact, this result occurs depending on the condition of the body and the total amount of coffee you drink during the day.

3 Increase the risk of angina

The study revealed links between coffee intake and high levels of homocysteine, which can increase the risk of angina attacks.

4 The possibility of kidney stones

Koefein increases the amount of calcium in the urine, and thus the risk of kidney stones.

5 Hot flashes - Hot flashes

Menopausal women can attest that coffee is one of the main drivers of hot flashes.

The key is the amount of coffee consumed

The emergence of these positive and negative effects depend largely on the amount of coffee you drink. So, 1 to 2 cups of coffee a day will have positive effects, such as.: Good mood, more energy, etc..

On the other hand, a very large amount - from 5 to 10 cups a day will cause negative effects such as: fear-anxiety, nervousness, tremor, palpitations, etc..

A simple recipe - enjoy in moderation!

It is well known that moderate exercise in coffee (2, 3 or even 4 cups a day) - does not represent a health hazard. The fact is that different people react differently to the same amount of coffee, and plays an important role, and hereditary factors.
