The properties of decaffeinated coffee
Decaffeinated coffee and the nervous system
Caffeine is an alkaloid and as such has a stimulating action on the central nervous system, therefore those suffering from anxiety or high blood pressure tend to avoid consuming caffeine which could affect nervousness, tachycardia and insomnia.
Obviously a healthy person can absolutely drink caffeine in a moderate way without running into any problems.
Decaffeinated: how to obtain it
The caffeine is eliminated through a process with carbon dioxide, a complex but widely used process. The coffee beans are treated with steam, placed in cylinders and treated with carbon dioxide at a certain pressure and at a specific temperature. No harmful solvents are used and the coffee taste remains intact.
How much decaffeinated coffee to drink
Although the coffee is decaffeinated, there is still a small percentage of caffeine and this is the reason that one should not exaggerate with the intake. In fact, we can drink a moderate amount, about three cups a day, if we don't want to have contraindications, which can occur in particularly sensitive subjects.
