Drinking coffee is one of the simplest methods of not being a couch potato. The usual benefits of drinking coffee are well-known: better processing of sugar by your body, fewer chances of developing Parkinson’s disease, higher energy levels, and so on.
A new study having Professor Peter Kistler of the Baker Heart and Diabetes Research Institute as the author brings great news for those who enjoy some cups of joe every day. The new research suggests that regular coffee drinkers could actually live longer.
Drinking at least 2 cups of coffee per day is the key
According to Bloomberg, the study in question included data from adults from the UK Biobank study, and it revealed that enjoying two or three cups of joe per day could be connected to living a longer life. The research analyzed the links between types of coffee and cardiovascular disease, heart rhythms, and death. Researchers now believe that consuming coffee should be included in a healthy lifestyle.
Kistler, the author of the study, explained as Bloomberg quotes:
In this large, observational study ground, instant and decaffeinated coffee were associated with equivalent reductions in the incidence of cardiovascular disease and death from cardiovascular disease or any cause.
The results suggest that mild to moderate intake of ground, instant and decaffeinated coffee should be considered part of a healthy lifestyle.
At the same time, we know from previous studies that coffee, at least in unusual amounts, is not good for everyone. Every organism can act in a different way. For instance, drinking too much coffee can also cause butterflies in your stomach when you need the most to be calm, such as during an exam.
About 50% of the US population consists of coffee consumers.
The new study was published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
