Caffeine is a natural substance that comes from coffee beans, tea leaves or cocoa pods. It can be found in caffeine pills or as an additive in certain foods. Caffeine has many side effects if it is consumed in high doses like insomnia, anxiety, irritability and migraines.
However, caffeine also has medical benefits. It can be used to decrease fatigue or increase concentration. The article I read suggested that caffeine could also stimulate the immune system which would help fight off infections while reducing inflammation during colds. This means that caffeine could reduce the duration of a cold, making it easier to get over faster.
There are also some studies showing that coffee might be good for your heart thanks to its antioxidants which can improve cardiovascular health by reducing inflammation and preventing “clots” in arteries (atherosclerosis).
The same study shows that there is another substance in coffee that could help lower the risk of stroke and heart disease, the substance is called cafestol. It can also affect cholesterol levels by increasing HDL (the good cholesterol) and lowering LDL (the bad cholesterol). This means that it decreases the chances of developing cardiovascular problems.
The diuretic properties of caffeine are well-known but it is also good for the bladder because it can increase bladder capacity when standing up. This means that there are no issues associated with drinking too much coffee or tea if you don’t have problems with your bladder.
There are some recommendations to limit the consumption of caffeine during pregnancy because it could affect your baby’s development but even if you don’t want to get pregnant, caffeine is not particularly dangerous to your health.
There are also some people that should limit their use of caffeine like those with anxiety disorders or cardiovascular diseases because it has many side effects.
