There have been quite a few studies devoted to the potential health benefits drinking coffee provides. It's common knowledge that late night coffee drinking has an effect on sleep quality. At the same time, drinking coffee can be used as a stimulant to provide an added burst of energy. But, is drinking coffee good or bad for your health? Find out a few of the health benefits of drinking coffee, in moderate amounts, below.

For many people, the first noticeable effect of drinking coffee is an increase in short term memory. Coffee beans contain an ingredient that actually stimulates short-term memory. This knowledge is particularly useful for students preparing for exams. According to research, students who drink coffee in moderation also score higher on tests than students who drink no coffee at all. Among those over the age of 80, studies have shown that drinking coffee can lead to improved cognitive memory functions. Drinking coffee can actually lower the risks of dementia and Alzheimer's disease too.

There is a slightly lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes among coffee drinkers. When compared to those who drink no coffee at all, people who consume 2 cups of coffee daily can reduce the risk of diabetes by up to 50%. At the other end of the spectrum, some people develop low blood sugar or hypoglycemia as a result. Hypoglycemic symptoms are not at all pleasant and may include clammy skin, weakness, heart palpitations, and sweating. If you have hypoglycemia, you would be best served by abstaining from coffee completely.

Despite a lack of formal study it is widely believed that caffeine increases the risks of high blood pressure. For people who drink too much coffee, anxiety or irritability is a common side effect. Resisting stress becomes difficult for some people after drinking coffee. In these cases people will feel anxious or stressed about things that do not ordinarily bother them. In this situation symptoms of stress might involve irregular heartbeats, increased heart rate, or even higher than usual blood pressure. Heavy coffee drinkers are especially likely to experience this.

Don't forget that even though there are good benefits for drinking coffee there are plenty of negative effects to remain cautious about. Limit your exposure to risk by consuming coffee in moderation. If you partake, only in moderation, you can benefit from the good health effects of coffee without facing the risks that drinking too much coffee poses.
