As a college student, coffee is a necessity. Late nights, early mornings… doesn’t coffee always seem to be the answer? I would say YES. Coffee is a dear friend of mine, high on the list of my favorite things. It is quite unusual if I do not have at least one coffee a day, but I do remember sometimes the most delicious things aren’t the best for us. I researched some information for myself that I would like to share with you!
One coffee lover to another, here are some pros and cons to coffee:
PROS: Antioxidant, mood booster, helps memory, helps burn fat, and reduces the risk of: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 Diabetes, Asthma attacks, and strokes
CONS: Risk of heart disease, caffeine addiction, sleep issues, dehydration, digestive & bladder issues, and risk of blood pressure.
College is tough, but remember coffee will always be there. Just be careful not to abuse it.
