Coffee is the most popular beverage in the world, but is it “healthy” to be drinking every day?
Coffee contains caffeine which acts a stimulant. Caffeine can make you feel more alert, increase your heart rate, and brain activity.
Its effects can last anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.
Coffee also contains antioxidants and small amounts of certain vitamins.
However, caffeine can also cause anxiety, tremors, and withdrawal symptoms.
Many people like to add extra sugar, cream, and other additives to their coffee which can increase their consumption of extra calories and sugar.
Often, these “specialty” coffees you can get at shops can deliver the amount of calories equivalent to a meal with little nutritional value.
If you are going to drink coffee, we recommend moderating your intake and treating specialty coffees like what they truly are, a “special treat”.
