Is Coffee Bad for My Health?

Is coffee really bad or is it actually good for me?  The news has us all confused!  One week it’s bad, the next it’s great.  It’s true, there is a lot of debate.  Different studies have shown amazing benefits, others have shown risks and downsides.  

The good: coffee has been shown to decrease the risk of Type 2 Diabetes and some cancers, can improve mood and memory, boosts metabolism and sports performance and is loaded with good antioxidants.  

The bad: it is a highly addictive substance that alters stress hormones which can cause you to feel “wired and tired” at the same time.  It is also highly acidic.    

The bottom line: we all metabolize substances differently.  If you feel negative side effects when you drink it – don’t!  If you feel great and get more done, go for it – in moderation, of course.  Make sure you’re not loading it up with tons of sugar or heavy creamers.  You can boost the health value by adding a healthy fat such as grass-fed butter, full-fat coconut milk, or coconut oil to make it creamier.
