The ultimate answer to the question: Can you drink too much coffee? Research says yes AND…..
Coffee is super high in antioxidants as evidenced in this study: tinyurl.com/yyesg356. Even more amazing is the fact that if you use Natural Process coffee, you will be getting the benefit of coffee fruit, which has been observed to increase Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) by 143%! That is the hormone-like substance that causes the brain to rejuvenate. To read more on this research: tinyurl.com/y42uepzj
However, a recent study of avid coffee drinkers reveals that, if genetically predisposed, too much can potentially lead to these diseases: joint disease, obesity, and osteoarthritis. I know that might be a bitter pill to swallow but there is a glimmer of light: The researchers did affirm that moderate coffee consumption will not lead to negative health outcomes therefore I would suggest limiting to no more than 2 cups per day. And I recommend organic Natural Process coffee which lets the beans dry in the sun with the coffee cherry fruit still on the bean.
