Drinking 1 cup of coffee a day reduces the risk of heart failure, a new study has revealed

If you also like to 
coffee , this news may be good news for you and if you do not drink coffee, after reading this news, you too should definitely start drinking coffee. But the only thing to keep in mind is that you have to consume a limited amount of coffee. This is something that a new study claims that drinking 1 cup of coffee a day can reduce the risk of heart failure.

Coffee reduces the risk of heart failure

After examining 3 large studies related to heart disease, the American Heart Association suggested that drinking 1 cup or more of caffeinated coffee daily reduced the risk of heart failure. If the results of the study are to be believed, then decaffeinated coffee does not provide the same benefits as drinking caffeinated coffee and the risk of heart failure may increase rather than decrease.

Coffee and caffeine are not bad for the heart

The senior author of the study, Dr. David Cao says, ‘I was surprised to learn what the relationship is between caffeine and a reduction in the risk of heart failure. Most people consider caffeine and coffee to be bad for heart health because drinking too much coffee can cause problems like high blood pressure and palpitation. The constant relationship between increasing caffeine consumption and a reduced risk of heart failure is changing the understanding of the general public. However, when it comes to keeping the heart healthy, that doesn’t mean you should start drinking coffee instead of healthy things.

1 cup of coffee reduces the risk of heart failure by 12%

In this study, Cao and his colleagues examined the data of more than 21,000 American adults involved in 3 large studies. The study participants were monitored for 10 years. All three studies found that drinking 1 or more cups of caffeinated coffee per day was associated with a lower risk of heart failure in the long run. People who drink 1 cup of coffee a day have a 5 to 12 percent lower risk of heart failure compared to those who do not drink coffee. According to Penny Chris-Atherton of the American Heart Association, drink plain coffee with sugar and cream, but consume limited amounts as well as healthy heart foods such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, low sodium, and low saturated fats.
