Does Coffee affect for your mental health?

Have you ever wondered if coffee has an impact on your mental well-being, whether it be negative or positive? Science seems to suggest that coffee might have a positive impact on one’s mental health. I must stress the word ‘might’ as these studies are mostly correlative and we should know that just because a correlation exists does not mean the one impacts the other in said manner.

In a study of 200 000 participants, when comparing coffee and suicide risk, it was found that individuals who drink two or more cups of coffee a day tend to have half the risk of suicide to those who do not drink coffee. But does the effect increase as one has more cups of coffee?

In a separate study of 100 000 participants, it was found that the more cups of coffee consumed the lower the suicide risk. This is to a point. Those drinking 6 cups of coffee a day had an 80% lower risk of suicide than those who did not drink coffee, however, those who drank more than 8 cups of coffee a day where at an increased risk of suicide.

These studies were performed on individuals who did not have any additives to their coffees. Therefore, as per usual, black coffee was found to be best.
