5 Conditions When is Coffee Bad for You
5 Conditions When Coffee is Bad for You

1. High blood pressure

Coffee contains caffeine, a potent stimulant that causes a temporary increase in blood pressure. Now, if your blood pressure is already high, would you like it to get higher?

Excessive pressure weakens the artery and there's only as much pressure a blood vessel can take before it breaks. If that blood vessel happens to be the artery supplying your heart or brain with oxygen, it'll be fatal. Prolong high blood pressure can also damage important organs like the kidneys and the eyes.


2. Heartburn

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD, also known as heartburn) is a health problem in which stomach acid climbs up the esophagus  resulting to a burning sensation or chestpain.

Coffee stimulates gastric acid secretion. Drinking coffee can aggravate heartburn especially if you drink it in an empty stomach. This can be really painful. Drinking coffee can also aggravate other gastrointestinal diseases like gastritis and stomach ulcer.


3. Insomnia

If you have trouble sleeping, them taking a stimulant like coffee can make it worse. Avoid drinking coffee especially past lunchtime.


4. Adrenal problem

Our day to day activity and sleep cycle is controlled by various processes such as hormone secretion. Normally, the adrenal gland (which is located on top of each kidneys) produce stress hormones cortisol and aldosterone. These hormones stimulates the body, preparing it for activity by increasing blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugar level.

People afflicted with certain diseases like cushing syndrome have abnormally high levels of cortisol. Coffee can aggravate this condition by further increasing the cortisol level.

Some of the symptoms of high cortisol level includes weight gain, mood swings, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure, palpitation, and lowered immunity.


5. Thyroid problem

Hyperthyroidism is a disease of the thyroid gland in which there is an over secretion of thyroid hormone leading to an increase in metabolism. It's symptoms includes weight loss, nervousness, palpitation, tremors, and diarrhea. These symptoms can be aggraved by the stimulating effects of caffeine.

Coffee don't go along well with thyroid hormone. Taking thyroid hormone within an hour of consuming coffee decreases the absorption of the medicine.


Note: Each person can react differently with coffee. It is important that you know how your body reacts with it.

What does Foods with Empty-calorie mean?

@healthbiztips by Arlene Gentallan

Foods and beverages with empty calories are packed with calories but with little or no nutritional value in the form of vitamins and minerals.  Most of the processed food stuffs you can buy at your local grocery store fall under the criteria of having empty calories, examples are:

bacon
beer
biscuits
burger
butter
cakes
candy
cheese
donuts
ice cream
hotdog
pastries
pizza
sausage
soft drinks

Foods and drinks with empty calories supplies the body with sugar, saturated fat, trans fat, or alcohol. These food stuffs are undeniably delicious but to much indulgence can lead to serious health repercussions like excess weight gain and development of health related diseases like diabetes and heart attack.

Although we need calories for energy, those containing empty calories are not essential to the body since these contain little to zero vitamins and minerals. It is recommended that we get the calories our body needs for everyday activity from nutrient dense foods for a healthy balanced diet.



How much empty calories is recommended per day?

The United States Department of Agriculture recommends to limit or decrease the consumption of foods and beverages with empty calories.

2-8 years old: 120 calories per day
9-13 years old: 120-250 calories per day
14-18 years old female: 120-250 calories per day
14-18 years old male:b 160-330 calories per day
19-30 years old female: 260 calories per day
31-50 years old female: 160 calories per day
> 50 years old female: 120 calories per day
19-30 years old men: 330 calories per day
31-50 years old men: 265 calories per day
> 50 years old men: 260 calories per day

Coffee is the most widely consumed stimulant in the world. Even it's aroma can jump-start your day. I'm gonna be sharing with you tips to make your every sip of caffeine both enjoyable and healthy.

@healthbiztips by Arlene Gentallan


1. Choose organic coffee beans. Millions of cups of coffee is being served around the world every single day. If you could imagine the staggering amount of coffee drinkers globally, think of how much pesticide has to be sprayed into these stuffs to make up with the demand.


2. The best time to drink coffee is in the morning, preferably before lunchtime. This way, coffee being a stimulant, will not mess up the quality of your sleep.


3. Never drink coffee in an empty stomach because this can lead to heartburn, ulcer, or gastritis.


4. Be mindful of the sweetener and creamer you add to your coffee. One cup of coffee contains approximately zero to one calories. 1 tablespoon sugar contains approximately 48 calories.  One tablespoon coffee creamer can contain about 40 calories. Commercially prepared coffees especially frappes can contain a lot more.


5. For healthy adults, it is recommended to consume no more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day. That's roughly 4 cups of coffee. Drink coffee in moderation to avoid unwanted side effects like palpitation and nervousness.


6. If you order a cup of hot coffee from a coffee shop, it's usually served piping hot. Don't drink it right away. Blow before you sip. Let it's temperature become tolerable before you take it in your mouth.


7. Don't forget to drink water. Coffee is a diuretic which means it triggers you to to urinate more frequently. You don't want to get dehydrated, do you?

8. If you like to add twist to coffee, why not do it the healthy way? Instead of sugar and creamer, there's a lot of healthy stuffs you can add to coffee like lemon, cocoa powder, ginger, and peppermint oil.

Does Milk and Vitamins make you grow Tall?

Does Milk and Vitamins make you grow Tall?


How high you can literally stand is a big deal to most people. Why wouldn't it be when it's part of one's self-image?

It seems there is a common perception that drinking milk equates tall stature. In fact, drinking milk every night is a common ritual among both children and adults for a variety of benefits. Have you ever question the popular notion: can you actually grow tall when you drink milk every night?


@healthbiztips by Arlene Gentallan

I hate to pop this bubble but your height is something you inherit from your parents like many other things like facial feature and body structure. The maximum height you can reach is determined predominantly by your genetics. Your height is not something that's fish out from a glass of milk.

But,  does not mean that drinking milk and eating nutritious foods is not important. Remember, your body needs building blocks to construct itself. Although drinking milk can't tamper with your genes, you do want to reach the maximum height allowed by your genetics, right?


You Need Vitamins and Nutrients to Grow

A well balanced diet is important for growth. Teenager during their growth spurt years needs calories, vitamins and minerals to fuel their drastic growth spurt.

Milk is a rich source of protein, fats, calcium, vitamin B12, riboflavin, phosphorus and other essential nutrients.


Milk and IGF 1

Research reveals that drinking milk stimulates the body to increase it's natural production of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF 1 aka. somatomedin C), a hormone that stimulates growth of cells and tissues in the body.

IGF 1 is predominantly produced by the liver. It's levels increases during growth spurt years. Consuming protein rich foods also stimulates it's production.


What? So you still need nutrients to grow taller?

Yes. Diet plays an important role which can not be downplayed.

For example, if the maximum height permitted by your genetics is 5 feet tall, then, drinking milk and eating nutritious foods will help you reach it. Although being a 5 footer isn't considered tall in our society's standards, at least you're taller than what you would have been had you not drunk your milk or took your vitamins.


Research proves Mega dose Vitamin C Kills Cancer

Research proves Mega dose Vitamin C Kills Cancer


By: Arlene Gentallan

Clinical trials showed remarkable outcome. At extremely high levels, vitamin c aids in destroying cancer cells while leaving normal cells unharmed. Extremely high blood levels of vitamin c is achieved by administering it directly into the bloodstream (intravenous route), thus bypassing the tight control imposed by the gastrointestinal system.



Buettler and his colleagues at the University of Iowa are on the path to make conventional cancer treatment more effective and tolerable by combining it with intravenous vitamin c.

Conventional cancer treatment chemotherapy and radiation therapy have many unwanted side effects like fatigue, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, bleeding tendency, and hair loss. Adding vitamin c to these conventional treatment produces better results. It makes treatment more effective by increasing the vulnerability of cancer cells to the tumor-busting action of chemo and radiation. It slows progression of cancer growth and increases lifespan of cancer patients.

Taking mega doses of vitamin c (which is about 300 times higher than normal) during cancer treatment was found to be safe and well tolerated among patients. Extremely high doses of vitamin c is toxic to cancer cells but not to normal cells.

Only minimal side effects were observed when vitamin c was given like dry mouth, increased frequency of urination and a temporary increase in blood pressure only while receiving chemotherapy and radiation therapy.



How do Vitamin C Kills Cancer cells

Research published in "Redox Biology" identified a clever mechanism by which vitamin c kills cancer cells. When vitamin c reacts with certain molecules in cells, hydrogen peroxide is produced which damages the cell itself. Certain cancer cells are prone to the damaging effect of hydrogen peroxide because, unlike normal cells, these cells have low levels of enzyme "catalase" which makes them unable to get rid of hydrogen peroxide effectively.



The Research

The study published in the journal Cancel Cells provide insight to the impact of vitamin c to standard treatments against aggressive types of brain cancer in humans-- glioblastoma multiforme and non-small lung cancer.

11 patients with glioblastoma multiforme (an aggressive brain cancer) participated in the phase 1 clinical trial. They were given 3 doses of intravenous vitamin c per week for 2 months in conjunction with chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Each dose increases blood level of vitamin c to about 300 times higher than normal. After 2 months, the dose was then decreased to 2 doses per week for another 7 months.


In the phase 2 clinical trial, 57 volunteers with stage 4 non-small lung cancer received 2 doses of intravenous vitamin c per week during each 3 week chemotherapy which lasted for 4 months.

Results showed increase survival rate and better outcome among those cancer patients who received vitamin c in addition to chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
