Coffee! Everybody loves coffee! From its soothing aroma to its wonderful bitter-sweet taste, coffee is definitely recognized as one of the most favorite drinks in the world. Aside from these reasons, coffee is also favored by many since it can effectively boost up the energy of a person. This is why coffee is best taken in the mornings with breakfast in order to remove drowsiness, which can help us in preparing for the day’s activities. However, all things must be taken in moderation and unfortunately, this includes coffee. But why do have to limit something that is so good? This is because not all good things can produce good effects or benefits for our body. In fact, drinking too much coffee can already predispose to more health problems. This is due to the caffeine content in coffee as well as some of its negative effects in the body. Below are some facts about caffeine & fertility.
Many experts have linked the high intake of caffeine to affect a person’s fertility. However, is this finding really true? Does caffeine contain substances or harmful effects that could cause problems with fertility? Some of the recent studies have concluded that too much coffee intake can actually affect the capability of the body to conceive or bare a child. This is especially true to those people who are having fertility issues. A statistic-based research have also shown that having at least 4 cups of coffee everyday can actually decrease the chances of conceiving by more than 25%. This only proves that limiting our coffee or caffeine intake to at least 300 mg per day is a must and can be considered within the safe limit. This can already make at least three 5 ounce cups of coffee, depending on the strength.
Nevertheless, there were also studies conducted that weren’t able to connect the connection of caffeine with fertility. This also shows that this issue or topic is still up for debate and can only be proven with the support of more evidences and research facts. There are also some experiments that link excessive coffee drinking with miscarriages. However, more substantial findings and results must be made in order to have a final result or conclusion.
These studies and findings are not made in order to discourage people from drinking coffee. In fact coffee can be really good for us; however, knowing our limits as well as the various possible effects in our health if we go beyond that limit can help us in preventing the worse or the negative to happen. Aside from coffee, other products that contain high caffeine include sodas, soft drinks, tea and some chocolates.
