Just how do you resist that craving for coffee? (2)

The idea of this series of blog posts is not
to talk against the people's beloved beverage.

Instead, it's hoped that
through a bigger picture analysis,
we will learn how to manage just any type of food,
not just coffee,
and consume in a moderate manner.

Exactly how moderate is moderate,
the parameters are indicated in what perspectives
we are are looking at it.

Perspective 2:
Coffee as a source of anti-nutrient

Anti-nutrients are compounds, natural or synthetic,
that prevent/slow down the absorption of essential nutrients.

Caffeine in coffee does exactly that by
inhibiting the uptake of B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron etc
which are all required for vitality, ironically!

Worse, is that caffeine helps drain away those essential nutrients
on top of hindering absorption....

While caffeine seems to be able
to boost one's vigour when one is sleepy or tired,
it actually first gives an illusion of helping our overall vigour
and then quietly and gradually do away the life force in the backstage...

If we are to consume coffee for some of the benefits it may bring,
it's important to factor in the risk of long term loss of life force
or long term dependency on the herbal extract to temporarily boost alertness.

Incidentally, coffee also dehydrates our body.
Many of my students may not be unfamiliar with
that fact that water is actually one of the three elements of life force,
along with oxygen and minerals.

When our body is dehydrated,
our body becomes acidic and
rendered prone to all kind of degenerative disease.

According to scientific observations,
many cancer, diabetic and cardiovascular patients
segregate in the sect of population who
don't drink enough water or being under-hydrated for long term.

Excessive drinking of coffee is
likely to drive us towards that statistics of the sick.

Next, we will further discuss
yet another important perspective of coffee
on how coffee can harm our health when it becomes popular worldwide.

Sincere regards,
