Coffee in Moderation Improves Concentration

Pennsylvania State University researchers found that one to two cups of coffee can help with your concentration. That's good news for those who drink just one or two cups of coffee in the morning. Now here's the bad news; Drinking four or more cups of coffee will likely cloud your memory.

In this newly released coffee study, 45 men were given caffeine capsules that equaled to 1 1/2 cups of coffee, 3 1/2 cups of coffee, or a placebo. Those who had the equivalent of 1 1/2 cups were twice as accurate in memory tests than those who had 3 1/2 cups or had no caffeine at all.
