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.
