(ORDO NEWS) — It has been scientifically proven that 1-2 cups of coffee a day will be beneficial for a person.
They do not have a negative effect on the body, but on the contrary, they give energy, improve blood circulation, maintain normal blood vessels, and have a positive effect on memory and concentration.
The American Heart Association conducted a large-scale study and found out how the popular drink and an increase in the risk of death from cardiovascular diseases are related.
First of all, coffee is contraindicated for people with high blood pressure.
For them, even two portions of the drink per day can increase the risk of mortality. Therefore, if a person’s blood pressure is higher than 160/100, it is better to give up coffee.
They are recommended to drink 1 cup of coffee a day, and the second can be replaced with green tea. Such a combination of drinks does not pose a threat to hypertensive patients.
One cup of green tea contains up to 50 milligrams of caffeine, and a cup of coffee contains 80-100 milligrams. Such a daily rate is relatively harmless.
But there is a way out for coffee addicts: decaffeinated coffee and chicory drink, as well as cocoa.
The research conducted by the American Heart Association was as follows: an experiment was conducted.
6,570 men and 12,000 women aged 40-79 took part in it. All volunteers underwent a medical examination, shared these data, and completed questionnaires.
The experiment lasted 19 years, and during this time scientists registered 842 deaths due to cardiovascular diseases.
Most of the people who died during this time drank a lot of coffee. They also suffered from hypertension, but did not change their habits in any way.
These results provide a clear understanding of the fact that hypertensive patients should not consume caffeine in moderation. They get more harm than good from drinking, which increases the risk of death.
