Controversy in a cup

Coffee is one of the most studied beverages around. Over 19,000 studies have been done on the health impacts of coffee.

Coffee is really a seed of the coffee fruit that is dried and roasted. When you look at it that way, it's not surprising that studies show coffee is rich in antioxidants and has health benefits. However, those benefits are often negated by all the "extras" people put into their coffee.

Each person's response to coffee, and especially to the caffeine in coffe, is unique. Take a look at the research results and allow your body to inform you.
