In our previous post, we mention a couple of reasons why coffee is the world’s second most valuable commodity: it gives us energy throughout the day and in research studies caffeine has been shown to decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes. Let’s explore more on the why coffee is so valuable.

Caffeine is one of the main reasons why coffee is so valuable. Being a mild stimulant, it has quite a few health benefits. Aside from reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, other studies have shown a reduction of the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia. In a studied conducted at the University of Florida, in 2009, showed that participants who were 40 to 50 years old and who drank at least three to five cups of caffeinated coffee a day, reduced up to 70% chance of the risk of getting Alzheimer’s and dementia by the time they were in their 70s. Another studied showed to have helped reduced the risk of suicide. In 2013, a studied conducted by Harvard’s School of Public Health showed that for participants who drank at least two to three cups of coffee a day helped reduce the risk of suicide by 45%.

Although caffeine has shown quite a few benefits, there are negative effects. Caffeine is a drug, so addiction is highly likely. The more caffeine you have per day, the more dependent you become on it, and the harder it is to quit. Side effects from going cold turkey are severe headaches, fatigue, and mental distortion. Caffeine can also cause high anxiety levels, unstable sleep patterns, and restlessness. Be careful when you are drinking coffee with certain medication as it might affect the impact of the medication.
