Coffee and Hydration: The Truth Behind the Cup

There are rumors that you shouldn't drink coffee when you’re exercising or that moderate coffee consumption causes dehydration. We’re not really sure how this all started but we’re going to dig deep and find out; is this true or just another myth? Keep on reading to find out!

Well, according to the findings of a new study, this claim is false!

Researchers at the University of Birmingham in the U.K. studied the fluid levels of 50 men who had a habit of consuming about three to six cups of coffee each day.

In order to compare the hydrating effects of coffee and water on these men, each participant had to complete two stages. In the first stage, they drank coffee as their main source of hydration; about 4 mugs of black coffee a day for 3 days. On the second stage, the participants went off coffee and drank equal amounts of water.

The study of the effect of coffee, and caffeine, on fluid balance can be split into two distinct areas: caffeine intake during exercise and caffeine intake at rest in the general population. The research shows that moderate caffeine consumption does not lead to dehydration in the general population. Also concluded is that during exercise, caffeine is beneficial for endurance performance and does not contribute to dehydration.

The mild, short-term diuretic effect of caffeine is not strong enough to counter-balance the benefits of fluid intake from coffee drinking. After all, black coffee contains more than 95% water.
