While it isn’t clear that drinking coffee is good for the heart, a recent study by the Stanford University School of Medicine does indeed provide a link between drinking coffee and healthy heart function. The main benefit coffee gives is that it dampens the inflammatory process that contributes to chronic illnesses like heart disease, arthritis and dementia. More research is needed, but now the study has identified substances that can be targeted.
- Numerous studies have found that drinking three to four cups of coffee a day reduces the risk of all-cause mortality. However, it is still not clear if coffee is good for the heart.
- A recent study examining the link between coffee consumption and heart health was able to find evidence of the good benefits of coffee for the heart.
- Nine out of twelve adults in the high activation group have high blood pressure compared to the one out of eleven adults in the low activation group.
“According to researchers from Stanford University School of Medicine, there is evidence that the caffeine found in coffee dampens the inflammatory process that contributes to age-related chronic diseases including heart disease, arthritis, dementia and many types of cancer.”
