Coffee is widely known to have health giving properties, but did you know that the more you drink the health giving effects are directed towards certain conditions and you could possibly see improvements if you suffer from a range of medical concerns.

Drinking one cup of coffee a day can boost alertness and aids bowel movement. The 100mg of so of caffeine in one cup of strong coffee boasts alertness by temporarily blocking the action of a compound called adenosine, a chemical that signals to the body to become drowsy. One cup can also stimulate the bowel. 29 per cent of coffee drinkers who answered a study said that just after their morning coffee they had the urge to go to the loo which seems to indicate that the compounds in coffee were more effective than water in creating a strong bowel movement.
