Study Shows Coffee Can Cut Stress in Women

A new study conducted by Harvard University showed that women who drink an average of two or three cups of coffee each day had a 15 percent lower risk of depression than women who do not drink coffee. Women who drink four or more cups daily showed to have a 20 percent lower risk.

According to the Huffington Post, the study was conducted with 50,000 participants in the Nurses Health Study.

Researchers wrote Monday in the Archives of Internal Medicine, “Our results support a possible protective effect of caffeine, mainly from coffee consumption, on risk of depression.” The author’s of the study warns women not to take any drastic caffeine dosages too early as the study needs to be replicated for more accurate results.
