Caffeine Is Actually Good For You
We've heard varying theories over the years about the effects of coffee and caffeine. The latest says that coffee is bad for your heart BUT ONLY if you drink 5 cups a day or more.
But a cup of "joe" in moderation can be good for your heart, memory, pain-relief and energy.
But what exactly is a "cup"?
If you grew up stateside, you’re taught that a cup equals 8 ounces. The recommendation of daily water intake is based on this measurement ― eight cups of 8-ounce glasses of water. But if you’re making coffee, a cup IS NOT defined as 8 ounces, no matter where you are. In fact, a cup of water for making coffee is generally only 6 ounces.
It should be noted that when we are talking energy drinks, less is more. An average energy drink has the same amount of caffeine as 5 cups of coffee and the equivalent of 17.5 spoonfuls of sugar.
