Antioxidant: Coffee is a high source of Antioxidant. Coffee provides 70% of total amount of important antioxidant in diet. Antioxidants in coffee are Polyphenols, chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid, Cafestol and Kahweol.

 

Antioxidant in coffee plays following role:

  • Neuro degenerative disease: Coffee works as natural anti aging beverage. Antioxidants protects against Parkinson’s disease, dementia. Coffee acts as natural Alzheimer’s disease treatment and also has protective qualities against Depression in some people.

  • Coffee is effective at “Fighting free radical damage”: Because it increases antioxidant in the blood (Plasma antioxidant capacity).

  • Cancer protection and as an anti inflammatory food: Inflammation which is the root of most diseases is reduced. Coffee lowers oxidative stress because of its ability to induce mRNA and protein expression. Caffeine found in coffee also has an impact on metabolites and lipid fraction that act as a safeguard against some malignant cells by modulating certain detoxifying enzymes.

  • Coffee prevents Cardiovascular disease and improves heart health. Antioxidant cafestol and kahweol are diterpene compounds which have cholesterol –balancing effects of coffee. Coffee intake is associated with lower risks of heart failure and stroke and also reduces the heart arrhythmia.

  • Help to prevent Diabetes: Antioxidant chlorogenic acid reduce the absorption of glucose from sugary or high carbohydrate foods. This could slow the release of sugar into the bloodstream after a meal and be beneficial for preventing insulin resistance, thus help to prevent diabetes.

  • Coffee may protect against alcoholic liver disease (It has been observed that 20% reduction in alcoholic liver syndrome by consuming one cup of coffee a day up to four times daily).

 

Disadvantage of Coffee:

  • Effect on Hydrochloric acid: Regular consumption of Coffee effects the availability of HCL in the stomach especially protein based food which passes into the small intestine before being properly broken down . undigested protein results variety of health problem like Bloating and gas, IBS, Diverticulitis and even colon cancer.

  • Ulcers, IBS and Acidity: Regular consumption of Coffee( Caffeine and various acids present in Coffee) irritate the stomach & lining of small intestine which is necessary for H. pylori to take hold initially , due to that Helicobacter pylori bacteria causes Ulcers, gastritis, IBS and Crohn’s disease. It also irritate the lining of small intestine which leads to Abdominal spasm, cramps, and elimination problem due to that diarrhea and constipation occurs.

  • Heart burn problems: Caffeine in Coffee relax the Esophageal sphincter due to that stomach content come back in stomach and burn the delicate lining of esophagus by HCL thus contribute the Acid reflux and Heartburn

  • Coffee as a laxative: coffee stimulates peristalsis thus promote the gastric emptying , whereby the stomach’s contents are quickly passed into the small intestines , before digesting food which makes it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed from your food. It also increases the chances of irritation and inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract.

  • Effects the Mineral Absorption: In heavy drinkers of coffee Iron absorption in stomach is effected and particularly effects the ability of kidney to retain calcium, magnesium and othe important minerals which plays vital role for good health

  • Acrylamide in coffee: Coffee contains the Acrylamide which is carcinogenic substance (cancer causing)

  • Stress and tension: Excessive consumption of caffeine in coffee release the stress hormones ”Cartisol, Epinephrine an Nor epinephrine” which increases the heart’s rate, blod pressure and tension levels. Stress hormones with a cup of coffee also interferes with the digestive process, caffeine in coffee also interfere with GABA metabolism. Gamma-amino butyric acid is a neurotransmitter involved in regulating mood and stress levels, it also affect the GIT.

“Mood and digestive system are interrelated, thus when you drink a lot of coffee the high levels of caffeine in it negatively affect both of them”.

 

How much coffee is safe to drink:

  • For healthy adult 500 mg. of caffeine /day (approximately 5 cups).

  • For pregnant women 200 mg. /day.

  • Ideally 1-2 cup of coffee /day has no associated negative effect but beneficial for people.

  • If associated with problem of stress a, tension, digestive problem it should be avoided.

 

What is the best time of consumption of coffee :

  • Morning 10 am to noon

  • Evening 2pm to 5pm

  • Early morning stress hormone “Cartisol” level in our body is very high and consuming caffeine when cortisol level are high creates two problems:

  • Caffeine interferes with the body’s production of cortisol which is released in response to stress and low glucose. The body ends up producing less cortisol and depends more on the caffeine to compensate.

  • It increases the person’s tolerance to caffeine because it replaces the natural cortisol – induced boost instead of adding to it.

Thus early morning is the worst time for coffee.

I'm 19 year old. I have first time sex on 25-2-2016. I worried about pregnancy. How can I prevent became pregnant. What precautions can I use.

As you had sex in the middle part of your menstrual cycle you have very good chance to get pregnant as you have already missed your periods by 9 days. You should first check your pregnancy by urine pregnancy test like preg test card or velocit card. If your pregnant, then it can be terminated with medicines till 7 weeks.

Hi You have not crossed your periods date. So if you feel any chance of pregnancy you can check it by doing urine pregnancy test if your periods delay. Back pain may be because of discharge problem which can be handled after confirmation regarding pregnancy.

Hello sir I want to know about a sex time. Before 2 years I got married I want to know that what about to sex she is pregnant from last 7 months is that we can sex now or not?

Fourth month onwards sex is not going to harm your wife, see what happens when female is stimulated by sexual intercourse, her uterus may contract in response to it during her orgasm. Therefore avoid doing too much of it. Another interesting fact is that this period is otherwise fearless for you and you can have sex without condom provided you don't have any sexually transmitted disease like gonorrhea, syphilis or hiv, hep b etc. So this is boon for you to show more intimacy and love. Female feels secure if she gets regular intercourse. No major risks in this.

I conceived pregnancy and it miscarries naturally in the first trimester, in how many days after I'll intercourse again to conceive.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Around 15% of pregnancies gets miscarried, that is nature's rule. You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months. Best one to use are oral contraceptive pills.

Hello lybrate user- ayurvedic concept of pcod (poly cystic ovarian disease) is somewhat different than modern concept, it generally occurs due to irregular food and daily habits done specially at the time of menstrual bleeding period. Pcod effect the ovulation process thus makes it difficult for the female to conceive and get pregnant. Some general tips to avoid pcod are- a) avoid spicy food fast food during the bleeding and take fresh indian food. B) use wet sponging instead of taking bath on those days. C) avoid running, skipping and other exercises on those days. Note: pcod can be cured within three months. Contact if interested.

Hi Karthick. Emergency contraceptives are known to delay and alter periods, not just the next one but sometimes upto next 2-3 cycles. Since you've not had intercourse in the last month after your period in December it's very unlikely that you could be pregnant. I would suggest you wait for another week. If still you do not get your period do a pregnancy test and confirm. If negative we can start you on medicines to resume and regularise your period.

Diet Drinks vs. Regular Beverages: Which is Worse For Your Health?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition (Delhi University)
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Panipat
Diet Drinks vs. Regular Beverages: Which is Worse For Your Health?
Why choosing diet drinks over regular beverages is not good for your health.

Have you switched to diet drinks from regular ones considering your weight or calorie intake? it probably is not the right choice. The reason is drinking diet beverages harms your body and will only result in more weight gain.

Although diet beverages are calorie free, they are added with artificial sweetener called aspartame which is reportedly 200 times sweeter than table sugar. This chemical adversely affects many body functions.

Effects of diet beverages on body in this list might suggest why you should continue your regular beverages occasionally, instead of shifting to diet drinks.

1. Increases belly fat
According to studies, the people who drank diet beverages showed increased waist size than the ones who drank the regular sugar drinks. The reason is believed to be the artificial sweetener and changed attitude towards food habits as the diet beverages easily justify high calorie food like burger, fries etc in turn. This is a concern as increased visceral fat, a body fat stored within abdominal cavity, is associated with increased risk of heart diseases and type 2 diabetes, the most common diabetes related to problems with insulin regulating the blood sugar.

2. Damage to brain
Aspartame is also known to damage brain by affecting the nerve cells and nerve endings in the cerebellum which are important for motor skills.

3. Low bone density
Drinking diet drinks lead to low bone mineral density and osteoporosis especially in females. Pelvic bone is most commonly affected in women by regular consumption of diet beverages.

4. Harmful for teeth
The diet beverages also contain large volume of citric acid which causes tooth erosion destroying tooth enamel in the regular users. The risk is comparatively less in the regular sugar drinks users.

5. Side effects
As aspartame may also interfere with different activities of brain, there are many side effects of diet drinks like headache, change in vision, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, memory loss, depression etc.

Me and my girlfriend engage in oral sex often. Is oral sex good, Both in health and relationship way of concern.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Oral sex is just a alternative sexual experience other than natural vaginal sex. Oral sex is neither compulsory nor mandatory for a good relationship among sexual partners. It is personal choice hence it is neither good nor bad.
