Harmful side effects of coffee that will weaken your health
Studies show that at least 90% of the world's population consumes coffee as a daily habit. Many of us like to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning to get energy for a sober day and they find it hard to quit. However, drinking coffee is not always good, and too much consumption of coffee is even extremely harmful.
Caffeine reduces drowsiness and increases alertness. According to the USA’s Food and Drug Administration, 90% of people around the world consume caffeine frequently. But, do you know that drinking too much caffeine will lead to negative effects on health, especially for women?
Here are some side effects of coffee that you might concern:
Let’s imagine one day you won’t be able to find a single drop of coffee, how will you feel then? Will you feel sleepy, headache, lack of focus on work...? Like any other habit, drinking coffee long and often can lead to addiction to this drink.
Increasing sugar consumption
When you consume too much coffee, the adrenaline in your body burns energy, leading to increased needs of sugar supplementation. In the process of providing more sugar to the body, some people want to add sugar to the coffee. This often leads to type 2 diabetes. Drink moderate amounts of coffee to stay healthy.
Increasing the risk of osteoporosis
A research has shown that postmenopausal women who drink more than three cups of coffee a day are more prone to osteoporosis. Drinking too much coffee can interfere with the absorption of appropriate nutrients and minerals into the bone, increasing the risk of osteoporosis. To reduce this situation you can combine coffee with milk.
Affecting the possibility of pregnancy
Studies show that consuming too much coffee in women can affect reproductive function, which can lead to infertility. Using too much caffeine during pregnancy may even increase the risk of miscarriage or affect the weight of the fetus.
Causing caffeine poisoning
Signs of caffeine overdose may include anxiety, restlessness, sleeplessness, nausea and vomiting. More serious symptoms of acute caffeine poisoning may include rapid heartbeats, high blood pressure, dizziness.
Leading to adrenal imbalance
Consuming a large amount of coffee affects the functioning of the adrenal glands, forcing the adrenal glands to overwork and eventually lead to the "exhaustion" of the digestive system. Adrenal glands also regulate the heart rate, so when the adrenal glands have to work too hard, the body will soon be exhausted and the first symptom will be weak heart. Besides, excess caffeine can cause body changes that lead to adrenal stress.
