Most people drink coffee every single day and while coffee has many health benefits, is it really as good as we think? Research shows that men guzzle coffee, while women sip their coffee. On average men drink 3 to 4 cups a coffee a day more than women, which can cause some serious problems.
Coffee is made of many chemicals that if consumed in excess, can have harmful effects on your health. Most people have one cup of coffee in the morning but then there are others that drink multiple cups of coffee throughout the day and this is when it becomes a problem.
It affects the nervous system
Thanks to its high content of caffeine, coffee keeps us awake in the morning and helps us at work. However, caffeine can also cause a feeling of nervousness and cause muscle tremors. According to Drugs.com, “caffeinism” can be developed if you drink too much coffee. This “caffeinism” is characterized by producing restlessness, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping. It is a feeling similar to anxiety, and in men, it can also cause aggressive behavior. There have been cases in which “caffeinism” has caused confusion, seizures, hallucinations and respiratory problems. Migraines and insomnia have also been reported.
It affects the digestive system
Drinking too much coffee can cause irritation in the digestive tract, as well as irritations in the stomach, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. However, these side effects are temporary. If you experience any of these side effects, stop consuming caffeine and you will start feeling better as soon as your body metabolizes all the caffeine and your system disposes of it.
