Have you ever wondered if coffee is good for you or is coffee bad for you? Maybe you don’t care because you enjoy drinking coffee so much! Regardless my mission is to inform individuals to empower them to make decisions for themselves regarding their health. There is a lot of misinformation and hype surrounding coffee in the media. One day coffee is good for you and good for your heart. Next day coffee is bad for you. Then the next day coffee is good for your health. This Russian roulette played by the media can be increasingly dizzying and frustrating. It can get to the point where you just want to scream and get a definitive answer to is coffee good of you or is coffee bad for you.
Don’t worry in this evidence based review I will summarize the highest quality evidence to answer the question is coffee good for you or is coffee bad for you. Surprisingly, the purported health benefits is NOT thought to be due to caffeine but do to other bioactive compounds in coffee. Again the media mistakes many of the health benefits or lack thereof due to caffeine but this is not what the research supports. Make sure to watch this video to get the full story.
If you can’t sustain it, it’s not worth it.
P.S If you drink Starbucks coffee I will not hold it against you ?....wait actually I may ?
