Strong black, light with milk, with foam, large, small, sweet, bitter, coffee with cardamom - coffee drinks 90% of the inhabitants of the country. The only problem is that we drink it too often. Below are 6 signs of excessive coffee consumption.
Coffee is famous for its useful stimulating properties. However, in order to use the power of caffeine, which is responsible for improving concentration and restoring strength, only two small cups of coffee are needed. Meanwhile, according to statistics - a person drinks 95 liters of coffee a year!
Note the heart of
If two small cups of coffee can be good for the body, then with each following cup our heart works at higher revs. From the usual 60-80 beats per minute it accelerates to 100. This level is leveled only after an hour of drinking coffee. Then often we make another cup of coffee. So the body in the state of activity and disruption of the heart, there is a long period. For a healthy person, this is not dangerous, if this state does not continue indefinitely. Dizziness, rapid breathing, a feeling of tightness in the chest are signals that it may be worth switching to light tea. People with high blood pressure and cardiovascular system problems are at greater risk. In their case, too much coffee can result in a heart attack.
Problems with the stomach
The level of gastric juice after taking coffee can rise to 15%. That is why the digestive processes are faster, especially after drinking fasting coffee, which leads to a faster metabolism. The second side of the coin is that an increased amount of gastric juice directly leads to heartburn and not very pleasant stomach contractions.
What happened to the nutrients ?!
A large amount of gastric juice and increased intestinal peristalsis contribute to the fact that the eaten food is quickly digested. Food, instead of digesting slowly, literally moves through the entire digestive tract, and a significant part of the nutrients will not be absorbed by our body. The best example is iron, for which caffeine acts as a formidable enemy - disrupts the assimilation of this valuable element.
Problems with the kidneys
Coffee has a diuretic effect. However, caffeine is not responsible for the increased production of fluid in the bladder. Especially cautious should be people with a penchant for kidney problems. Oxalates contained in coffee, combine with calcium and form deposits, which later lead to pain, in the form of kidney stones.
Teeth and excessive drinking of coffee
There is a misconception that caffeine contained in coffee, significantly affects the color of the teeth. However, if you care about snow-white teeth, you should avoid coffee - the tannin contained in it stains your teeth. More attention should be paid to additions to coffee (sweets, cookies) than coffee itself. Polyphenols contained in black coffee effectively fight bacteria and tartar. Adding sugar to coffee, syrup or milk, you immediately increase the risk of caries.
Unpleasant smell and coffee
Unpleasant odor, a feeling of discomfort and dry mouth after consuming coffee is quite a natural phenomenon. Coffee dries out the mucous membrane, and cells that need to be purified by saliva begin to release sulfur compounds. That is why coffee is often served with water.
