The Menopause Exchange


For immediate release: 24 February 2020

Tea and coffee – how much do they affect your health?

Are you a coffee or tea addict? Do you struggle to get through the day without your caffeine fix? If you can’t cope without a cuppa or two, could this have any effect on your health and, in particular, on your menopausal symptoms?

In the Winter 2019-20 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, registered dietitian Angie Jefferson explores the pros and cons of tea and coffee drinking. How much coffee should we be drinking – and what’s the best way to drink it? And is drinking tea any better for our health?

“Media reports can be very conflicting, so it’s difficult to know how much our tea and coffee intake is affecting how we feel,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “In her article, Angie Jefferson provides us with the facts and also takes a look at the impact of drinking coffee on hot flushes.”

The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women and healthcare professionals.
