Coffee Daily: Windows To The World

1955 words - 8 pages

People all over the world wake up to a cup of coffee but is this harmful or beneficial? Research shows that the pros to coffee, at responsible amounts per day, outweigh the cons or negative effects of coffee and even have the same effects as medicines given over the counter at pharmacy or even prescribed by a pharmacist. Many people just drink coffee without even knowing the location of where coffee began but this can be very crucial to the understanding to finding the benefits of coffee.
“In the Ethiopian highlands, where the legend of Kaldi, the goatherd, originated, coffee trees grow today as they have for centuries. Though we will never know with certainty, there probably is some truth to the Kaldi legend. It is said that he discovered coffee after noticing that his goats, upon eating berries from a certain tree, became so spirited that they did not want to sleep at night. Kaldi dutifully reported his findings to the abbot of the local monastery who made a drink with the berries and discovered that it kept him alert for the long hours of evening prayer. As word moved east and coffee reached the Arabian peninsula, it began a journey which would spread its reputation across the globe.” ("The History Of Coffee")

Lots of benefits that come from coffee come from the caffeine such as giving you energy to stay awake just like the Kaldi in the story ,but caffeine can be addictive just like a drug. The central nervous system begins to rely on the caffeine in its system to operate and without the caffeine, the body begins to feel sluggish and an immediate stop from the intake of caffeine may have certain effects on the body such as headache, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, depressed mood, or even difficulty concentrating. A slow decline of caffeine can break the habit of the nervous system needing it to function.
The effects of coffee ,such as helping you stay awake, stir up a few questions such as does it cause insomnia. The caffeine in the coffee is what helps you stay awake and caffeine is quickly absorbed by the body. The caffeine travels manly through the liver and has a fairly short half-life of about five to seven hours depending on the size of the person consuming the caffeine. “Around 8 to 10 hours after the consumption of the caffeine, about 75% of the caffeine is gone.”(Ukers) Most people that drink coffee who do not have insomnia drink their coffee at least 6 hours prior to bedtime but this also may vary to the range of sensitivity to the effects of caffeine. Having better understanding about the effects of coffee can be beneficial to the consumers because the consumers will be able to use the coffee in the most effective way to suit their life.

Another myth about coffee was that the caffeine in coffee is connected to higher cholesterol or bone loss but it is not. “High amounts of coffee intake may increase calcium and magnesium loss in urine but this does not increase your risk of bone loss.”(“Coffee Facts”) If you get at least...
