Recent research has shown that coffee reduces the risk of stroke, heart disease and heart failure. According to the American Heart Association, up to six cups of coffee per day reduces these risks by at least five percent. This research has begun to point to coffee even protecting the heart and arteries.

The study began by surveying how much coffee the average drinker consumed in a day. The average amount was one to six 8-ounce cups per day. These avid coffee drinkers had noticeably reduced risks of heart diseases in comparison to people who did not drink any coffee. Laura Stevens, a student at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, was a key researcher in this study. The university has been conducting cardiovascular research since the 1940’s and has begun to factor coffee into their equation.

“Ultimately, our key goals are to determine whether coffee consumption is a clinically useful part of cardiovascular disease risk assessment,” Stevens said.

Although all research is not final, it is becoming more and more clear that coffee does, in fact, prevent many diseases. These facts disprove the common misconception that coffee is unhealthy and combats it with scientific proof. Coffee research has been conducted for many years before this, as this is not the first study that has shown that coffee often leads to a healthier lifestyle. Essentially, coffee not only improves a person’s mood, it also improves their heart health.

More and more coffee drinkers (and non-coffee drinkers) are learning about these health benefits. Promotion of coffee and caffeine is becoming more widespread. CNN recently released a special on the benefits of coffee. They listed benefits such as improved memory, athletic performance and liver health. They also stated that caffeine will protect against Parkinson’s disease.

Almost every day, new features come out about the benefits of implementing this beloved drink into daily routine. Although some may say coffee is an acquired taste, experts encourage people to start drinking it—for health benefits if nothing else. So, if you already drink coffee, this is good news for you. If not, these stories, among others, may be the encouragement you need to try something new.
