Coffee and Blood Pressure:
Even though coffee relaxes me, I guess we also need to take into consideration it raises blood pressure as well..
Now, it probably won't make a huge difference unless you are drinking an exaggerated amount, but something to keep in mind.
Caffeine: How does it affect blood pressure? - MayoClinic.com
Always a good thing to keep in mind.. Like all things we need to look for warning signs, and it's always a good idea if you have a headache in the morning to maybe avoid that cup of coffee, unless of course it is coffee withdrawal causing the headache.. But that's another story entirely

Yes, that is true indeed.
I mean, I have personal experience of this. My auntie had the problem of high blood pressure and when she went to the doctor, he asked him whether she smokes or not and the second question was that whether she drinks coffee or not and in what amount?
My auntie used to take 7-8 mugs of coffee, I mean big mugs of coffee, each day and the doctor strictly advised her to restrict herself to just a couple of mugs each day because of the high blood pressure.
So we all better take care of this fact and restrict ourselves to 2 or 3 mugs of coffee per day if we have high blood pressure.

The coffee ritual relaxes me, missing my morning ritual might increase my BP although physiologically I know that coffee is supposed to increase BP, at least marginally. Of course more and more research these days touts coffee's health benefits so I wouldn't want to quit drinking coffee to avoid the bump in BP and miss out on all the other positives. Moderation, as it is in most everything, is the key.

I always found it interesting that how we feel isn't necessarily related to blood pressure... I have had instances where I was stressed to the point where I thought I would explode, and when they took my blood pressure it was perfectly fine
The human body certainly is an interesting thing....
I made a deal with my doctor. He quits complaining about my Caffeine(coffee) intake and I keep providing him with venison jerky. Haven't heard one peep in over a year.
This is something didn't knew it is a complete awareness.I appreciate you for sharing it here.I already take it in a specific amount but now ill be more thankful.All thanx to you dude

Even though caffeine has been thought to increase the risk of high blood pressure, but it is quite surprising that the result of a long term study proved to be the other way around. People who drank the most coffee seemed to even develop some protection from high blood pressure. However for people who drank large amount of caffeine-containing colas, the risk of high blood pressure is increased.
