Coffee: good for you, bad for you — well, which is it?
It’s one of the age-old medical flip-flops: First coffee’s good for you, then it’s not, then it is — you get the picture.
Coffee is beneficial because it contains huge amounts of antioxidants, which help slow the aging process and protect you from free radical damage. Coffee also helps stimulate the liver and increases circulation, helping blood flow to the brain. Coffee can also be harmful in some ways because of the caffeine it contains. The caffeine in coffee can overstimulate the body, burn out your adrenal glands or overtax your body.
