The Many Benefits of Drinking Coffee…

August 1, 2006

3517174637.jpg On my way to attending the Annual Convention of the American College of Endocrinology in Chicago next week…am sure I’ll be offered drinks like…Coffee or Tea? while in the airport lounge or in the plane. 

Of course to help me combat my jet lag and to keep me awake while listening to the latest research in endocrinology… I’ll be sipping my coffee… But before grabbing another cup…  and another cup… how many cups of coffee or tea per day is okay?

It has been estimated that moderate doses ( 200-300 mg) of caffeine: either from drinking coffee or tea have not been shown to be harmful…this is equivalent to drinking 2-4 cups per day which is the average number of cups we usually take.  In fact part of a diabetic meal plan is the so called free food where coffee or tea are both listed under and I usually allow my patients to enjoy 1-2 cups per day.

Aside from boosting ones alertness level, other Medical Benefits of Coffee include :

1. Lower risk of developing Diabetes by 50% as shown in the study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

2. In the Rochester Project published in Neurology, 2004, caffeine intake was associated with lower incidence and delay in the onset of Parkinson’s Disease.

3. The National Institutes of Health Study showed lower incidence of liver problems among caffeine drinkers.

These are really good news for caffeine users but more studies are needed to confirm the above findings.

One very important tip to know that you already have consumed unhealthy amounts of caffeine is when you start having the following symptoms: restlessness, anxiety, insomnia, headaches or palpitations.

Because of its ability to affect ones sleep cycle… sleep problems are usually encountered for caffeine users.  One tip to prevent disturbance in sleep is to avoid taking caffeinated drinks at least 6 to 8 hours prior to your sleeping time because it takes time for the effect of caffeine to wane off.

So the next time you grab a cup …

Be Guilt Free and ….

Enjoy Your Coffee and Tea!!!
