While it May Not be the Best, You CAN Hydrate with Coffee

Coffee – The study “A randomized trial to assess the potential of different beverages to affect hydration status: development of a beverage hydration index” published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates that coffee does not cause dehydration as previously thought.

A study of the effect of coffee published in 1928 had set the thinking that because coffee is a diuretic, it would not help in hydration. The new, more comprehensive study indicates that coffee will contribute to hydration. While coffee is certainly inferior to water for hydration, coffee will help regardless of the many trips to the restroom it may cause.
