Coffee plays a major role in many people’s lives. It makes you feel energized, and a cup of coffee in the morning has become something coffee lovers never want to miss out on!
But what about drinking about 25 cups of
coffee per day or more? Is it too much though? According to a research, that
doesn’t seem to be the case.
For the research, they used an analysis which used about 8,500 people in the United Kingdom. Based on the data they gathered, they found out that, not only those that consume about 5 cups of coffee per day but also, some of whom drank up to 25 cups of coffee per day, did not have a higher risk of arterial stiffness, which can increase the risk of stroke and heart attack. Yes, you heard it right! The new study was published in BMJ Heart.
However, it is important to note that constant high consumption of coffee may have a negative effect on health irrespective of the fact that it doesn’t badly affect arterial stiffness.
Dr. Parveen Garg is the assistant professor of clinical medicine at Keck School of Medicine of USC. “Coffee and caffeine have a wide range of effects on the body outside of the cardiovascular system. When consumed in high amounts, these effects can be harmful,” said Dr. Garg. He also pointed out that, according to researches, drinking coffee has benefits on health.
“There has been a lot of recent literature to suggest that higher caffeine/coffee consumption may actually be associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease,” he further added.
