Courtney on Health: Pros and Cons of that kick from Caffeine

According to the makers of Maxwell House coffee, your morning cup of Joe is “good to the last drop” but is it good for you? For most people, it is not harmful to consume up to 400mg of caffeine a day, but according to MedlinePlus, if you do eat or drink too much caffeine, it can affect your body as it can cause restlessness, shakiness and insomnia. On the other hand there can be the heart-healthy benefits in your morning brew. In a large study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology it was suggested that the benefits of coffee could benefit your overall cardiovascular system. Magnetic resonance imaging results for more than 30,000 study participants, showed that daily coffee drinkers had healthier-sized and better functioning hearts than those who didn’t drink coffee regularly, though experts say more research is needed to fully understand the connection. Courtney has some great info on the pros and cons on how the kick from caffeine affects your body and soul.
