Seems these days, almost everyone has a view on whether coffee is good or not so good for our health and wellness.
Like a lot of things, I believe it comes down to each one of our unique wellness needs. For some, a cup of coffee in the morning probably isn’t a bad thing (although, it’s easy to overdue it, I used to a lot of the time). However, if you have any issues with Anxiety, Acid Reflux or IBS then it’s probably not a good idea to drink much Java or any at all (even decaf coffee and tea can be harmful for your system).
Something to keep in mind is that Coffee is very acidic (-25.1) so if you are shooting for an Alkaline based diet then you want to definitely keep it to a minimum or eliminate it from you diet. Green Tea is a great substitute with many health benefits (including a better ph level).
It seems to have work best for me to eliminate Coffee from my days. I used to have some minor anxiety issues and I’m also in hardcore Cancer Prevention mode so I don’t need the acidic ph levels added into my system. I may someday go back to 1 or 2 cups every so often but at this moment in my life, I don’t miss it at all. I drink a cup or 2 a day of Green Tea and it seems to be working well for me.
Just something to quickly think about while you are grabbing your next cup of Joe (or Tea).
What are your thoughts on coffee and it’s risks and/or benefits? How many cups ‘o Joe do you swig down in a day? Please let us know below in the comments, thanks!
Lots of love,
