Did you know that coffee is a significant source of antioxidants in the US diet due to its level of consumption? Also, both caffeinated and decaf coffee appear to provide similar antioxidant levels.
Antioxidants have been associated with potential health benefits which include protection against cancer. According to recent published studies, besides keeping you alert, coffee has been linked to providing protection against type 2 diabetes, liver and colon cancer, and Parkinson’s disease. However, more research is needed to concretely establish its health benefits.
So how much coffee is too much? 3, 8 ounce cups a day is considered moderate coffee consumption. So do limit your intake to no more than 3 cups a day.
