Coffee helps improve concentration, keeps us alert, and gives an extra little boost in the morning. It might even help our personality become a bit more effervescent. But when it comes to our health, is coffee good or bad for us? well lets get to know coffee together :

Coffee Contains Some Essential Nutrients and is Extremely High in Antioxidants

Coffee is more than just dark brown water… many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the drink.

A typical 8oz (240 ml) cup of coffee contains (1):

  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): 11% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): 6% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamin): 2% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin): 2% of the RDA.
  • Folate: 1% of the RDA.
  • Manganese: 3% of the RDA.
  • Potassium: 3% of the RDA.
  • Magnesium: 2% of the RDA.
  • Phosphorus: 1% of the RDA.

This may not seem like a lot, but try multiplying with 3, 4, or however many cups you drink per day. It can add up to a significant portion of your daily nutrient intake.

But where coffee really shines is in its high content of antioxidants.

Coffee is not bad for your heart

For many years, cardiologists thought that caffeine would increase the chance of developing an arrhythmia called atrial fibrillation, but new information suggests differently. A study published this year shows no increased risk in irregular heartbeat despite coffee intake. In fact, it may even be good for the ticker. A major study in 2014 concluded that a couple of cups of coffee a day may actually decrease your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Coffee can become addictive

According to the Food and Drug Administration, “when people use caffeine every day, their bodies get used to it, and they do not get the ‘good effects’ of feeling more awake and able to concentrate unless they use more of it.” Withdrawal symptoms include headache, fatigue and becoming irritable if you miss your daily cup of Joe.

Coffee May Help Protect Your Brain in Old Age, Leading to Reduced Risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease and a leading cause of dementia.

Studies have shown that coffee drinkers have up to a 65% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease .

Parkinson’s is the second most common neurodegenerative disease and caused by the death of dopamine-generating neurons in the brain.

Coffee drinkers have a 32-60% lower risk of Parkinson’s disease. The more coffee people drink, the lower the risk .

The ingredients that you add to your coffee may be bad for you

It is easy to take a fairly healthy drink and turn it into a caloric nightmare — sugar adds empty calories, while milk or cream adds saturated fats. A Starbucks Grande Caramel Frappuccino has 380 calories, and 18 grams of fat. A large coffee with cream and sugar from Dunkin Donuts has 260 calories.

People Who Drink Coffee Are at a Much Lower Risk of Depression and Suicide

Depression is an incredibly common problem.

It is the world’s most common mental disorder and leads to a significantly reduced quality of life.

In one Harvard study from 2011, people who drank the most coffee had a 20% lower risk of becoming depressed.

In one review of 3 studies, people who drank 4 or more cups of coffee per day were 53% less likely to commit suicide .
