Decaffeinated Coffee Health Information

No doubt most of the modern world we live in is caffeinated. Besides soft drinks, coffee is big business, but many coffee drinkers find themselves switching from a regular cup o' Joe to decaf for a variety of personal reasons. However, decaf impacts health just as much as regular coffee.Digestive Problems
The process of removing caffeine from the robusta beans increases the acidity level, which then in turn may contribute to or exacerbate acid reflux disease (GERD), heartburn or stomach ulcers. Those diagnosed with these conditions should reduce their intake of decaf coffees.

The natural oils produced during the decaf bean process contain diterpenes, chemicals that stimulate fatty acid production that may increase the risk of heart attack in certain individuals. Decaf raises the amount of LDL (bad) cholesterol in those susceptible.

Bone/Joint Health
Decaf coffee acids may contribute to the early onset of the demineralization of bone material (osteoporosis) and negatively affect joints by increasing the risk of developing Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Conversely, consuming tea in the same amounts as daily decaf coffee decreases these risks significantly.

The high acidity in decaf coffee increases intraocular pressure behind the eyes, increasing the risk of developing (or agitating) glaucoma in those diagnosed with the condition. Left unchecked, glaucoma may lead to premature and permanent blindness.

Decaf may contain trace amounts of the chemical additive methylene chloride, which is used to solidify and remove caffeine. This chemical not only has harmful effects on the central nervous system, but is linked to several cancers of the lungs, stomach and intestines.

    Some bodies have a high burn rate of calories, which prevents them from accumulating fat.
    Just make sure that whatever routine you decide on that you do it on a
    regular basis so you can achieve the best results.
    In order to build muscle I have seen consistently with mytests on over
    a thousand skinny males that the usualrecommended calorie intake of 12- 14 calories per pound ofbodyweight is not enough to build muscle.
