ABSTRACT
The article presents information on various advantages of decaffeinated coffee (DCC). The DCC has less impact on blood pressure and dehydration and it improves an individual's cholesterol levels. As per a study, funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, individuals with a body mass index higher than 25, who drank DCC instead of caffeinated coffee, increased their HDL cholesterol by about 50% over a three-month period.
