3 Cups Of Coffee Daily Could Improve Heart Function, Study Finds

3 Cups Of Coffee Daily Could Improve Heart Function
The effects of beverages such as coffee and tea are widely studied but still not clearly understood. Recently, the decision to have coffee carry cancer warning labels was met with mixed responses from experts and the general public.


Adding another key finding to the on-going debate on how caffeine affects our health, new research states that it may not be harmful to the heart. Patients who are diagnosed with atrial fibrillation/arrhythmias (a quivering or irregular heartbeat) are often advised to avoid caffeine.

Referring to this, the researchers have suggested that the stimulant may actually be linked to improved heart function. Furthermore, the form in which people consume their caffeine plays a significant role.

The review titled "Caffeine and Arrhythmias: Time to Grind the Data" was published in the April 2018 issue of Clinical Electrophysiology, a journal of the American College of Cardiology.

"There is a public perception, often based on anecdotal experience, that caffeine is a common acute trigger for heart rhythm problems," said lead author Dr. Peter Kistler, director of electrophysiology at Alfred Hospital and Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute in Australia. "Our extensive review of the medical literature suggests this is not the case."
