What are the benefits of coffee: Myths vs facts

Coffee is a popular beverage enjoyed by millions of people worldwide. For some, it’s a way to start the day off on the right foot, while for others, it’s a necessary pick-me-up during a long afternoon. Despite its popularity, there are many myths and misconceptions surrounding coffee that can leave people confused about whether it’s a healthy choice. In this blog, we’ll separate the myths from the facts about coffee. At Roastea, we source all our coffee and tea ethically and do a lot of research before serving our customers, to improve their experience and the health benefits that we can provide. Let’s debunk some myths about coffee together! 

Myth: Coffee is bad for your health 

Fact: Coffee, when consumed in moderation, can actually have a positive impact on your health. Research has shown that coffee consumption may reduce the risk of several chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and liver disease. Additionally, coffee contains antioxidants that can help protect your body from damage caused by free radicals. 

Myth: Coffee will dehydrate you 

Fact: While caffeine is a mild diuretic, meaning it can cause you to urinate more frequently, drinking coffee in moderation won’t dehydrate you. In fact, the amount of fluid you consume from drinking coffee can offset the mild diuretic effect. 

Myth: Coffee will give you heartburn 

Fact: While some people may experience heartburn or acid reflux after drinking coffee, this isn’t true for everyone. In fact, studies have shown that drinking coffee doesn’t increase the risk of developing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) for most people. 

Myth: Coffee will make you jittery and anxious 

Fact: While caffeine can cause jitteriness and anxiety in some people, this isn’t true for everyone. The amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee can vary widely, and people’s sensitivity to caffeine can also vary. If you’re sensitive to caffeine, you may want to limit your intake or opt for decaf coffee. 

Myth: Coffee will help you lose weight 

Fact: While coffee contains few calories, it won’t necessarily help you lose weight. However, if you’re trying to cut back on calories, substituting a sugary or high-calorie beverage for black coffee can be a good strategy. You can also include coffee in your pre-workout plan and read about that in more detail here.

Myth: Black coffee is only for serious coffee drinkers 

Fact: Anyone can enjoy coffee, regardless of their level of coffee expertise. While some people may prefer coffee with milk or sugar, others may prefer the taste of black coffee. It’s all a matter of personal preference. 

Myth: Coffee can help you sober up 

Fact: While many people believe that drinking coffee can help them sober up after a night of drinking, this is actually a myth. Coffee does not lower your blood alcohol content or help you sober up any faster. 

Myth: Coffee can help you live longer 

Fact: This one is actually true - several studies have linked coffee consumption to a reduced risk of mortality from a variety of causes. So go ahead and enjoy that cup of coffee - it might just help you live longer! 

Myth: Coffee is addictive 

Fact: While coffee does contain caffeine, which is a stimulant that can lead to dependence in some people, it is not considered addictive in the same way that drugs like heroin or cocaine are. Most people can quit drinking coffee without experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms. 

Myth: Coffee can stunt your growth 

Fact: This is a common myth that has been around for years, but there is no evidence to support it. Drinking coffee in moderation is not likely to have any impact on your height. 

Myth: Coffee can make you smarter 

While caffeine is a stimulant that can improve alertness and concentration, it doesn't necessarily make you smarter. However, it can help you perform better on tasks that require sustained attention and focus. Here's a smart way to try out all these benefits - try out the Super Power Coffee by Roastea, while you debunk these myths. 

In conclusion, coffee can be a healthy and enjoyable beverage when consumed in moderation. While it may not be for everyone, it’s important to understand the facts and dispel the myths surrounding coffee. If you enjoy the taste and benefits of coffee, there’s no reason to feel guilty about indulging in a cup or two each day.
