Coffee is surprisingly good for your health in a variety of ways.

Its polyphenol content can improve your gut health and even help you live longer.

However, while a cup of coffee in the morning can improve your overall health.

There are a few caveats to consider, such as how coffee affects your blood pressure.

Caffeine, according to the Mayo Clinic, can cause a brief but dramatic increase in blood pressure.

Some researchers think caffeine can block a hormone that keeps the arteries widened, resulting in higher numbers.

An 8-ounce cup of coffee contains 100 milligrames of caffeine, and the daily caffeine limit is 400 milligrames - equivalent to 28 ounces of regular black coffee.

Drinking more than this amount is not recommended by experts due to the effects on blood pressure, anxiety, insomnia, and digestive issues.

If your blood pressure is higher than usual, talk to your doctor about caffeine consumption and whether they recommend limiting your daily cup of coffee.
