Why your first cup of coffee might not be helping as much as you’d like
If you’re a coffee lover, you probably already know there are some pretty great health benefits, but we’re guessing your main reason for drinking it might be that fantastic caffeine high you get that helps you make it through the day.
That cup of coffee might slow the spread of colon cancer
If you can’t go a day without coffee, you’re not alone. A recent study shows it may help slow the spread of colon cancer. The study looked at dietary questionnaires from 1,171 people who were undergoing chemotherapy for advanced or metastatic colon cancer. They found that for every cup of coffee consumed, there was a seven percent improvement in survival; and a five percent improvement in cancer growth. Researchers found that it didn’t matter if someone drank decaf or caffeinated coffee — both appeared to positively impact colon cancer.
Your first cup of coffee might not be helping as much as you think. Here’s why.
Here’s what you may not know: There are prime times during your day to drink coffee to get the best effects, and those times aren't necessarily first thing in the morning. If you’re drinking coffee during that timeframe, you’re drinking it at a time when you’re already naturally at your maximum level of alertness. Drinking coffee during your natural cortisol peak can cause you to develop a tolerance to caffeine. “In other words, the same cup of morning coffee will become less effective,” Miller said. Even if coffee is the first thing you want to taste in the morning, if you’re using it for a pick-me-up, it might behoove you to try waiting a little while.
