Study: Drinking caffeinated coffee helps your heart


DISCLAIMER: I am a coffee addict. It’s bad. So, I may have a bias when it comes to studies reporting on the positive benefits of coffee.

The Daily Mail reports that researchers, with the Baker Heart Institute in Melbourne, Australia, have concluded that drinking two to three cups of caffeinated coffee a day decreases your chances of “developing coronary heart disease” by between 10% to 15%.

The researchers came to this conclusion after following 400,000 people for ten years who were in their 50s and did not have heart problems.

The Daily Mail explains:

Professor Peter Kistler, an expert at the Baker Heart Institute in Melbourne, Australia, who led the study, said: ‘Our data suggest that daily coffee intake shouldn’t be discouraged, but rather included as a part of a healthy diet for people with and without heart disease.’

Coffee beans contain more than 100 compounds linked to lower levels of inflammation and an increased metabolism.

The researchers said these mechanisms may be some of the factors behind how drinking the beverage can boost heart health.
