I've heard too much caffeine is bad for you, then its good for you. Of course everything in moderation. The rule of thumb is no more than 2 cups a day. They say successful business people stay away from having too much caffeine since it initiates the fight and flight response, causing us to react more aggressively. Is that true? So if we are a boss of many people does that mean we should drink less coffee?
This is what I think about coffee after hearing everything that's out there. It's good to drink after a night of alcoholic beverages. It can either cure a headache or possibly make it worse. It can cure a headache if we are having withdrawal symptoms. I can attest to that! Caffeine turns parts of our brain black, and have also heard other claims backing that up. Of course this means we would have to drink over the normal amount. A cup of coffee can make us more alert, think straighter, and give us some good natural energy. I used to drink a Red Bull before taking an exam in college. I know that's a little extreme but it did wonders for my alertness and results. Coffee and tea fight cancer, it lowers our cholesterol, it prevents Parkinson's just to name a few. And don't forget, it's bad to brush your teeth right after coffee or tea because it scrubs the enamel off.
I used to drink coffee everyday but currently I haven't had any in six months. Just tea. I'm following a strict plant based routine so that is the reason. I don't think I'll drink AS much as I did before. But I would surely enjoy a nice hot cup of Joe!
So what is right? Well I always say everything in moderation. I looked forward to my cup of Joe and I enjoyed it to the fullest. I've also been made it a habit to drink Green Tea on the daily. Currently I drink Decaf Green Tea as well as fennel, raspberry, blueberry, and chamomile. I've always heard great things about Green Tea and numerous things about coffee. My limit is two cups a day. I think there should be a limit somewhere when it comes to caffeine. That was my max. I also didn't drink any soda, and still don't, so no added caffeine there. I've turned to see what Dr. Oz had to say about Coffee and Tea. Dr Oz. is one of my favorite doctors for go-to advice when it comes to our health. He's had extensive experience and education in the medical field and his family also has a medical background. With that said, I think he's pretty credible. The picture above is from his website which you can go to by clicking here. It sums up some good benefits of both.
Another website I looked at was Dr. Mercola. He has several degrees, he's affiliated with several industry organizations, he's won several rewards, and he's highly credible. Check his site for more details. Here's a few tid-bits from it:
