Why does NutriBullet recommend no more than one cup of coffee per day?

II noticed Nutribullet documentation recommends no more than one cup per day. Just wondering why in the context of many articles in the popular press ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/17/coffee-health-benefits_n_4102133.html ) that claim health benefits.

Stevea that's a great question. Coffee can have many health benefits but when consumed in moderation. The caffeine in coffee stimulates the flight or fight hormonal reflex causing a release of adrenaline and cortisol. One cup of coffee or at most two is fine however more than that releases to much of these hormones and begins over time an addictive dependence of the stimulus of the caffeine. The body cuts back making normal energy because it is running on hormonal energy. Over time you can overwork the adrenal glands causing excessive fatigue. Caffeine is also a diuretic make your body loose important water. Coffee is not good for diabetics it will make it worse. I use raw cocao for a nice hot chocolate two or three times a day and love it in place of coffee. I hope this helps. Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.

Thanks, Wally. That helps. Do the effects you describe apply to decaf coffee too? And I wonder if there's a K-cup for the raw cacao hot chocolate you describe.
sorry...should have posted the above as a reply
Steve There is no k-cup for the hot cocao but I will give you my recipe. The effect is not as much with decaf. 95% of the caffeine is removed in the decaf. But be very selective when buying decaf. Only one process is really the best and healthy for you. Make sure it is organic and made using the Swiss water process. http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2011/04/how-decaffeinated-coffee-is-made/ This is a source for decaf coffee made by the Swiss water process. I have no involvement with this company. http://www.coffeeam.com/bludebrasorc.html Recipe warm 8 ounces unsweetened almond milk add 1.5 tablespoons raw cocao (more if you want it really chocolatey) 1 teaspoon raw honey 1/4 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon add stevia to desired level of sweetness if needed Healthy wishes wally Bishop C.N.C.
