Drinking Coffee Could Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease

Coffee is one of the most consumed commodities in the world. Travel to any corner of the globe, and you’re bound to see someone drinking coffee in one form or another. Sure, the brewing methods might differ, and when people drink their coffee depends on their culture and habits. But, one way or another, people everywhere drink coffee. The question is, why?

The caffeine in coffee can boost energy levels, help you feel less tired, and fire up your metabolism. It also helps the brain by boosting memory, mood, and mental function in general. It’s also comforting and is a means of making a set routine. These are just some of the benefits of coffee that we enjoy when we drink our favorite beverage every day.

The other reason caffeine is why people drink coffee is that it is addictive. There are many chemicals in coffee that lend to its addictive properties and caffeine is the main one. Addiction is one of the top reasons people drink coffee every day. Caffeine withdrawal can cause headaches and irritability, and many people prefer not to give up their coffee. If they happen to simply like the taste of coffee but want to avoid caffeine, they can switch to decaffeinated and avoid the addiction.

Health benefits

Coffee also comes with many health benefits, mainly courtesy of its caffeine content. Many studies have shown that caffeine has several brain health benefits, including protecting against neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s and improving long-term memory.

For many people, coffee is the first beverage consumed in the morning and can be relied upon for energy to help them get through the day. For some, the smell and taste of coffee is comforting. If you are deprived of sleep, having a cup of your favourite brew can help you feel more relaxed and ready to be productive. 

If you live in a cold climate, having a hot cup of coffee can be the ultimate remedy to warm the soul. If you live in a hot climate, you have the option of having your favourite coffee drink iced. Since there are a vast variety of coffee flavours, roasts, and add-ins available on the market, many people can customize their drinks to match their exact preferences.

Heart diseases

Recent studies have found that coffee drinkers are less likely to die from some of the leading causes of death in women: coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. Drinking coffee, particularly two to three cups a day, is not only associated with a lower risk of heart disease and dangerous heart rhythms but also with living longer, according to studies being presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 71st Annual Scientific Session. 

These trends hold true for both people with and without cardiovascular disease. Researchers said the analyses, the largest to look at coffee’s potential role in heart disease and death, provide reassurance that coffee isn’t tied to new or worsening heart disease and may actually be heart protective.
