Let’s All Meet Deb At Starbucks! She May Be On To Something …
A new study found that more than 5 cups of coffee a day is bad for your heart. Which is a LOT of coffee.
But … as long as you’re drinking 5 cups or less, you should be okay.
And it can actually be good for you.
Here are four potential health benefits of caffeine . . .
1. In moderation, it might be GOOD for your heart. Previous studies have found that three to four cups of coffee a day can lower your risk for heart disease and stroke.
2. It helps with pain. Especially if you pair it with a painkiller. Research shows that taking ibuprofen with a cup of coffee works better than ibuprofen alone. It can help with headaches, menstrual cramps, and even pain after you’ve had surgery.
3. It can improve your memory. A study in 2015 found that drinking coffee every day can give you a memory boost. And studies with mice suggest it could even help you avoid Alzheimer’s.
4. Caffeine may lower your risk for certain cancers. Four or five cups a day has been shown to help people with colon cancer, and colorectal cancer. And a 26-year study by the American Cancer Society found it could also cut your oral cancer risk in half.
