4 Times You Shouldn’t Drink Coffee

- in General

It really is considered that coffee is healthy, mainly because it reduces the risk of dementia, boosts metabolism, as well as decrease the risk of skin cancer and even more but there are times when we shouldn’t drink coffee. Down there you can read about those times that you need to avoid drinking coffee:

When Your Coffee is Way too Hot. If you one of those people that like to drink coffee as soon as it’s done brewing, then you should stop doing that. Consuming hot drinks above 149ºF (65ºC) may increase the risk of esophageal cancer. Adding a splash of milk or cream into your coffee can lower the temperature but by only 5 degrees. If you ask what is the best solution, well just patient. A cup of black coffee in a 10 oz ceramic mug usually needs about five minutes to cool to a safe-sipping temperature of under 149ºF (65ºC).

If You’re Prone to Anxiety. If you’re feeling stressed, consuming cup after cup of coffee could be responsible for that. Caffeine has a stimulant effect on the nervous system. It leads to a release of the stress hormone cortisol, triggering our “fight or flight” response, and also has been found to worsen the anxiety and sleep problems, especially in people that have panic disorders and social anxiety. To reduce caffeine’s impact, think about scaling back to 1 or 2 cups of coffee in a day and the last consumed coffee is recommended to be about 6 hours before bed.

When You Drink a cup at The Morning. Drinking a cup of coffee at 6 AM is actually not doing any favor to your energy levels. This is simply because in the first few hours after waking, your levels of the stress hormone cortisol are at their highest and basically provides you with a natural energy boost. A lot of experts have the same opinion that the ideal time to have your first cup of coffee is sometime between 10 AM and 12 PM when cortisol levels begin to go down. If in case you drink your first cup super early (6 AM or 7 AM) chances are high that you may just need another cup of coffee a few hours later to keep the energy going – and by doing this you can worsen your personal health, more coffee may not be a good thing. People who have a problem controlling conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, as well as gastroesophageal reflux disease, the downsides of excess coffee may outweigh the benefits.

When You’re Seriously Hungry for Sleep. Latest research finds out that caffeine stops being helpful for boosting alertness whenever you get fewer than five hours of sleep for three consecutive nights. So little sleep leads to such a steep decline in cognitive performance that absolutely no amount of caffeine can beat it. Whenever you cannot get least 7 hours of shut-eye per night, forget about the coffee completely and take a 20-minute nap when energy levels drop. The research shows that it can help you overcome symptoms of lack of sleep and improve alertness a lot better than caffeine.
