In Portland we know the benefit of coffee and regularly enjoy a cup of Joe in the morning (and afternoon!) – it’s simply part of our culture. Well, continue to drink up people of Portland – because coffee has been linked to improved memory recall and may also help prevent: Alzheimer’s, heart disease, gout, type 2 diabetes and Parkinson’s (in men only). Your morning brew can also increase your energy expenditure (calorie burning). One study showed that it burned 67 more calories that those who drank water – that’s the equivalent of a medium-sized apple. Despite all it’s goodness – do stick to the expert’s recommendation and limit your daily caffeine intake to 400 MG for men (about 4 cups of coffee) and 300 MG for women (about 3 cups of coffee). Too much of this good thing can cause restlessness, insomnia and anxiety.
