A new analysis indicates people who drank more coffee had a lower long-term risk of heart failure. Among those in the Framingham and Cardiovascular Health studies, the risk of heart failure fell by 5%-12% per cup of coffee per day, compared to people who drank no coffee.
Drinking up to three cups of coffee a day may protect your heart, a new study finds. The association between caffeine and heart failure risk reduction was surprising, Coffee and caffeine are often considered by the general population to be bad for the heart because people associate them with palpitations, high blood pressure, etc. The consistent relationship between increasing caffeine consumption and decreasing heart failure risk turns that assumption on its head." said senior author Dr. David Kao.
On the other hand, adding dairy, sugars, flavors or non-dairy creamers can add a lot of calories, sugar, and fat, which could revoke coffee's benefits for the heart, the American heart association advised, so consuming too much coffee can be problematic. Moreover Coffee also raises the likelihood of bone fractures in women who are at risk. In men, however, coffee had no such effect. Aim to eat a diet that includes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy products, and lean proteins to prevent any kind of heart disease.
Caffeine also is addictive, and cutting back too quickly can cause withdrawal symptoms, especially terribly harsh headaches. It should be considered that unfiltered coffee may have an opposite effect on the heart since it elevates LDL cholesterol leading to a higher health risk.
In Conclusion, coffee wakes you up, boosts your metabolic rate, and decreases the risk of some diseases also it’s an excellent source of antioxidants, which may help protect cells from damage. Thus, Drinking coffee does not increase the risk of congenital heart defects or death.
