There’s an awful lot of warnings and cautionary tales out there about caffeine and having too much per day.
I, personally drink way too much coffee than I really should, but is the hype really to be trusted?
Like most things, we get told something is terrible for us, then on the flip of the coin we are told to have as much as possible because it is an anti-carcinogenic, anti-oxidant, provides eternal youth etc.
It is no surprise that we have no idea where we stand with so many foods and vitamins.
However, we are now being told after years of opposing advice that caffeine is good for us and can improve our overall cognitive health.
This latest study isn’t particularly groundbreaking though and nor are the results, but the actually amount of coffee required for optimal protective effects is not exactly agreed upon with some researchers believing a further cup of coffee per day is required.
So while there is no unanimous on the exact quantities that we should be consuming, there is a glimmer of hope that shows that there’s no evidence to report that drinking coffee can damage the brain.
