By MangoBaaz Studio | 11 Jun, 2021

It can be hard to enjoy your cup of coffee when there are so many myths floating around its consumption. Coffee is one of the most misunderstood drinks out there. Don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered! Here are some of the lies about coffee consumption that we’ve all believed in at one point and what the truth of the matter really is.

1. Coffee is unhealthy

NO! Louder please for the people at the back! It has actually proven to help prevent certain types of chronic diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, Type 2 diabetes, and more. However, it’s important to remember that people with high blood pressure, children, and the elderly should limit the caffeine amount they consume daily.

2. Having coffee in the afternoon will cause insomnia

You know what? We’re gonna let science decide this one for you. Your afternoon cup of coffee is processed through the liver at a very high speed and it’s quickly flushed out of your body within 4 to 7 hours. So, by your bedtime, you’ll be pretty sleepy.

3. The caffeine in it is highly addictive

*Pfft* can we get over this myth already? Even though caffeine stimulates our central nervous system, but the withdrawal effects only last one or two days. So, it’s far away from the “highly addictive” label which is a common misconception.

4. It’s just not… good for you

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually good for you. Studies have repeatedly shown the health benefits coffee has to offer. So, having a little bit every day won’t hurt you!

5. It stunts your growth

Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?! This myth has been around forever but there’s actually no truth to it. As of yet, no scientific evidence supports this.

6. It causes cancer

Quite the opposite actually since coffee is on the list of cancer-fighting foods published by the American Institute for Cancer Research. The rich antioxidant content found in coffee helps in repairing cell damage and protecting your cells.

7. All coffee has the same amount of caffeine

Are all your fingers the same? Yup, we didn’t think so. These beverages are brewed differently which is why every cup has a different amount of caffeine in it.

8. Coffee is bad for your heart

Whaat? Really? That is definitely not true! For most people, it just causes a temporary increase in blood pressure but this isn’t harmful in the long run. In fact, it helps prevent clogged arteries!

9. It dehydrates you

The amount of water in a cup of coffee actually makes up for the dehydrating effects of caffeine.

10. Instant coffee has no health benefits

It has an abundance of antioxidants and while the concentration of these antioxidants might not be as high as in brewed coffee, instant coffee still has a pretty good supply of it.
