Do you know that drinking too much coffee, which contains caffeine, can put a pressure on the stomach, kidneys, liver and andrenal glands? When the body is trying to get rid of the excess caffeine, it will also result in the excretion of vital vitamins and minerals. These are just some of the negative effects of drinking too much coffee. So, you should always bear in mind the adage: "Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing".
Luckily there are tips on how to drink coffee in a healthier way. Here are 4 of them:
1. Change to organically grown coffee
Those that are grown the conventional way are exposed to too much pesticides. Choose coffee brands that have entered fairtrade practices with farmers who grow organic coffee.
2. Avoid flavoured coffees, and no sugar please.
Flavoured coffees (Yeah, we know some of you love 'em), are full of artificial flavourings. So, we don't want that, do we? And on that note, try as much to put as little sugar as possible in your coffee.
3. Drink only ONE cup of coffee per day
We know this is too much to ask for coffee lovers out there, but we're not asking you to cut down from drinking 10 cups of coffee per day to just 1 cup of coffee per day on the first day itself. Gradually cut down the number to eight for the first week, and six for the following week and so on. This enables you to wean off the need for that caffeine fix without shocking your system. The ideal amount of coffee that your liver can handle is eight ounces per day. That's doable, right?
4. Just ENJOY that one cup of coffee.
Why should you be made to feel guilty about the simple pleasures of life, which includes drinking coffee? Just make sure that it is organic, ground-at-home coffee. After all, stressing about drinking coffee will only add unnecessary stress on yourself, and stress is a major factor in depleting the nutrients out of your body. So, just ENJOY your cup of coffee. Remember, MODERATION IS KEY.
