There is nothing better than coffee to wake you up and increase your concentration. Coffee also aids in weight loss and reduces the risk of chronic diseases.
But drinking too much is not good. No matter how ‘strong’ to caffeine, the daily intake should not exceed 400mg. In other words, it is the smallest size (about 230ml) in a coffee shop, and it is within 3 to 5 cups.
There are times when you have to ‘stop’ coffee altogether. If you have a baby or are breastfeeding, it is better not to drink coffee. The same goes for those who have a hard time getting a good night’s sleep. What else could be the case? It was organized by ‘It This Not That’ in the US.
◆ Anxiety = According to researchers at Cardiff University in the UK, caffeine in coffee can make anxiety symptoms worse. People who are chronically worried or anxious and who suffer from physical symptoms as a result, such as dry mouth, numb hands and feet, a headache, heart palpitations, and diarrhea are advised not to drink coffee.
◆ chest pain = Caffeine loosens the lower esophageal sphincter. As a result, stomach acid can reflux and cause heartburn and chest pain. If you have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), stop drinking coffee immediately. Tea, soda, and chocolate are also not good. Because it also contains caffeine.
◆ blood pressure = Some studies have found that coffee drinkers are at an increased risk of developing high blood pressure as they age. Further studies are needed to fully prove the relationship between caffeine and blood pressure. However, if you have high blood pressure, it is best to avoid coffee as much as possible.
◆ weight = Coffee makes you feel full. Thanks to this, it is not difficult to skip snacks or meals. However, when satiety is turned off, a relatively intense hunger comes, which makes it easier to binge eat. If caffeine continuously stimulates the sympathetic nerve, it is also a problem to crave sweet and stimulating foods. If you’re drinking coffee for weight loss, it’s wise to look elsewhere.
◆ Withdrawal symptoms = I haven’t drank coffee, so my head is heavy and I have no energy. I feel bad too. It is a withdrawal symptom. quit coffee. If it is difficult, you should reduce the amount you drink. “You shouldn’t let coffee influence your quality of life.” This is the advice of nutritionist Kylie Ivanir.
