Coffee not only provides you enough energy in the morning to ace your day but also comes with a lot of health benefits. As if this was not enough, brewed coffee grounds can also be re-used in a number of beauty and household hacks.
Despite of all the benefits that coffee offers, there is a lot of false information spreading on the internet about the coffee. Let’s bust these coffee myths one by one.
- COFFEE DEPRIVES YOU OF SLEEP
It is a common misconception that coffee can make you insomniac. However, studies have proved it wrong times and again. All the caffeine that we consume gets processed immediately and is flushed out of the body almost within four hours. So, if you drink coffee twice or thrice a day, you are not going to face any harmful effects of this amazing energy booster drink. In fact, a latest research has proved that coffee can help you if you are struggling with insomnia and can increase your concentration levels.
- COFFEE IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH
If such a thought has ever crossed your mind or else you’ve heard it from someone, give this article a read (health benefits of coffee) and get your facts straight about coffee.
- COFFEE CONSUMPTION LEADS TO FEMALE INFERTILITY, MISCARRIAGES AND LOWER BIRTH WEIGHT
There is no strong evidence or enough research available in this regard. It has been proved that coffee consumption is not related to miscarriages. However, it is strongly advised that females during the pregnancy period should control the intake of coffee and just to be on a safer side, should consult their physicians if they want to drink more than 2 cups per day.
Similarly women do not face infertility issues or any other difficulty in conceiving a baby if they are a regular coffee drinker.
- COFFEE MAKES YOU FEEL TIRED
This misconception is exactly opposite of how coffee works. Coffee acts as a natural stimulant and makes you feel relaxed but its excessive intake might block adenosine production in your body.
- COFFEE GIVES YOU CANCER
Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants, chemical that helps you fight symptoms of aging and is also used in the treatment of cancer. Therefore, regular coffee drinkers are naturally at a lower risk of developing cancer.
- COFFEE IS ADDICTIVE
Regular coffee drinkers and coffee connoisseurs might say that it is hard for them to quit coffee. It is probably due to the amazing flavors that coffee possess. But, it has barely anything to do with the addiction of coffee. Studies have proved that human body requires some amount of caffeine on daily basis for proper functioning. Around 400 milligrams of caffeine is allowed per day, for a healthy adult that makes around four cups of brewed coffee.
- COFFEE MAKES YOUR BONES WEAK
It is a common myth that coffee deplete your bones of calcium and vitamin D which in turns makes your bones weaker. This can lead to a number of health issues including osteoporosis. Studies have shown that people who intake moderate amount of coffee per day are not at a risk of developing such issues. There are a number of other factors that contribute to osteoporosis which includes smoking, menopause, lower estrogen levels, diet higher in protein, low body weight and little to no physical activity.
