Side Pattern

Aside from caffeine’s best-known benefit of increased energy levels, there are other potential benefits.   Caffeine may help you to:

  • Burn Fat
  • Lose Weight
  • Stay Alert
  • Be less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease, dementia, certain types of cancer and type 2 diabetes

On the downside, however caffeine has some potential negative side-effects.  It can:

  • Cause insomnia or restlessness
  • Increase osteoporosis
  • May contain pesticides
  • Be harmful to a fetus

Don’t forget that caffeine is not just in coffee.  You will also get a caffeine jolt from tea, soda, chocolate and other sources.  For most people drinking reasonable amounts of caffeine should be fine; but, as it can impact everyone differently, you should pay attention to your body and the way it reacts to caffeinated products.
