Bean benefits

There’s conflicting advice in health magazines, newspapers and websites about whether we should be knocking back espressos, or going cold turkey on caffeine and switching to camomile teas. What’s the verdict?

The majority of the evidence suggests that there’s little harm in having a few cups of coffee or caffeinated tea each day – in fact, some studies have found that coffee could actually reduce risk of type 2 diabetes, dementia and Parkinson’s disease. In addition to this, for all you competitive exercisers it’s been shown that caffeine can enhance endurance performance if taken before exercise.

But a word of caution, too much coffee or other caffeinated drinks can increase blood pressure, anxiety and affect sleep so it’s also not recommended in large quantities (especially if pregnant, breast feeding or diabetic).
