We’ve never been more thankful for our cup of joe!
How many coffee breaks do you take in a day? This study might just reveal the optimum amount of coffee we can have daily to lead a healthy, risk-free life!
The European Society of Cardiology has unveiled a new finding that links higher coffee consumption to a lower risk of death.
Cardiologist, Dr Adela Navarro and his team led an observational study with 200 thousand participants, most of whom were about 37 years old. The study started off after the participants completed a questionnaire, revealing information about their coffee consumption and lifestyle habits.
During the 10 year study, over 300 participants died. The researchers found out that participants who drank 400 milligrams of coffee a day decreased their mortality-rate by up to 64%, compared to people who didn’t consume coffee on a daily basis. 400 milligrams amounts to four small cups of coffee which is about the size of a Starbucks-sized Venti cup.
So sipping on two medium sized coffees a day might not be so bad- you may just be protecting your health in the long term! This rich, black brew is packed with caffeine which is great for your cardiovascular health. Coffee also is brimming with antioxidants that contain anti-inflammatory compounds, great for protection against diseases. There’s more, it also improves your cognitive function that makes you more alert. Sounds like something we all could do with before hitting the work desk!
Just be cautious about the amount of syrups or creams used in your coffee. Substitute the sweeteners with honey and you’ll be pleasantly surprised with how amazing it tastes!
