Can 3 Cups of Coffee Really Unclog Your Arteries?
What does the latest coffee study really show?
Are you a regular coffee drinker?
If you are, then you need to keep on reading. The latest research by Andreia Miranda at the University of Sao Paulo shows that by drinking just 3 cups of coffee a day you can reduce your chance of heart disease.
The research published by the American College of Cardiology, focused on 4,400 participants and measured their Coronary Artery Calcium levels through a method called computed tomography. It was shown that as the level of coffee participants drank increased, the level of Coronary Artery Calcium decreased.
3 is the Magic Number
Three cups of coffee seems to be the optimum amount, with worries about too much coffee having a negative impact causing problems such as anxiety and irregular heartbeat.
These findings come at a time when heart disease is highly prevalent. In 2015, there were just under 11.3 million new cases of CVD in Europe according to the European Heart Network.
Caffeinated vs Decaffeinated:
The study found no difference between caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee, suggesting that it doesn’t matter if you drink your coffee with or without caffeine, as caffeine isn’t responsible for the decrease of calcium found in the arteries.
It is thought that it is antioxidants in the coffee that are responsible for the result, although cause and effect is yet to be established.
Other suggested benefits of Coffee:
- Reduced Insulin Sensitivity
- Reduced Blood Pressure
- Lower risk of diabetes.
