Coffee is the all-time favorite drink for most of the student-body on campus.

Whenever you’ve got an exam or need to finish an assignment by 11:59 p.m. on a Friday, coffee is a great companion for most students.

Coffee is not just a drink, it’s a habit for many.

It can create bonds between people and help those struggling to finish strong.

Coffee has its benefits and drawbacks.

From a scientific point of view and with all the research that has been done, coffee has been proven to be beneficial… if used wisely.

One of the main ingredients in coffee is caffeine, which acts as a stimulant to the nerve cells.

This is the reason why you feel suddenly awake and can somehow focus on your work.

It also works as an energy drink.

Current studies have shown that the energy from 64 ounces of cola is equivalent to 16 ounces of coffee.

According to WebMD, coffee beans contain disease-fighting antioxidants called quinines, which along with magnesium, helps to reduce the risk of high blood sugar levels.

Coffee also lowers your chance of getting diabetes.

Research has shown that coffee can reduce the risk of gallstones, Parkinson’s disease and liver disease by remarkable figures.

On the other hand, excess coffee won’t make you healthy either.

78 percent of freshmen consume more than the recommended amount of caffeine per day.

This includes coffee too.

It’s not so surprising when you have Starbucks and POD’s on campus.

We are lured in by the endless options of drinks.

When your coffee intake is more than your body can change into proper nutrients, it can cause insomnia, irritation, high blood pressure and make your bones weaker.

When it comes to lowering your coffee intake, it’s kind of hard because you can get addicted to it.

With so many benefits, coffee can be a sound choice for many.

Compared to soda full of sugar, coffee can be a better choice.

It can be the excuse you need to hang out with your friends.

The taste blended with it’s sweet aroma creates a different atmosphere fit for any situation.

Rather than using coffee as a “wake-me-up” potion, it will be healthier and wiser to plan out a place and time for coffee in your diet.

When it comes to coffee, knowing your limit is the key to staying healthy.
