Coffee does not dehydrate the body

German scientists have discovered that coffee does not dehydrate the body. Regular consumption of up to four cups daily did not show any signs of dehydration.

Not only coffee, but also other caffeinated beverages, do not dehydrate the body at all. The nutritionist Judith Bünker states: "The advice, to drink the same amount of water, to every cup of coffee, in order to compensate fluid depletion, is scientifically not sustainable." Furthermore, the renowned German researcher states that coffee can be looked upon as beverage, like water, and not as diuretic item.

The caffeine, contained in coffee, does not have any negative impact on the human body. However, dosage counts. Scientists agreed, according to the release, that regular consumption of caffeinated beverages is not harmful, if the total daily amount does not exceed 300 mg caffeine.
