Health Benefits of black coffee

Coffee and tea are the two most highly consumed beverages that people have across the world to keep their energy levels active throughout the day.

Due to increase in acidity in the body, adrenal activity comes down and also leads to decrease in production of progesterone and causes dominance of estrogen.

The rise of estrogen levels in the body leads to some major problems like weight gain, prolonged menstrual cycle, mood swings and fertility issues
