No net diuretic effect of caffeine

You may have heard that caffeine causes dehydration, creates an electrolyte imbalance, and increases cortisol production. If this is true, then are any potential benefits of coffee cancelled out by the negative effects of caffeine?

The diuretic effect of caffeine was supposedly established by an influential study from 1928 that involved only three subjects who were observed for only a few hours. While it’s true that caffeinated beverages like coffee may produce an acute diuretic effect, there is no evidence of caffeine-induced chronic dehydration in any scientific literature. To the contrary, caffeinated drinks have almost the same effect on body fluid balance as pure water! Even if caffeine may increase urinary water loss in the short-term (within a few hours), physiological processes that oppose dehydration are more than capable of counteracting this effect when coffee is consumed in moderation. Therefore, moderate coffee intake does not present any risk of dehydration.
