Thread: There's even more evidence that coffee is good for your heart

    There's even more evidence that coffee is good for your heart

    and 4 cups a day might be the ideal amount

    A team of German researchers, led by the molecular biologists Judith Haendeler and Joachim Altschmied, thinks it has discovered clues about how coffee works its caffeine-fueled magic on our heart health and how much caffeine we should drink each day to see the best benefits.

    By studying caffeinated lab mice and dosing human tissues with caffeine, the researchers discovered how a jolt of the stimulant could improve the way cells inside our blood vessels work essentially, by making certain proteins inside older adult cells perform more like young and nimble ones. The study was published Thursday in the journal PLOS Biology.

    "When you drink four to five cups of espresso," Altschmied told Business Insider, "that seems to improve the function of the powerhouses of our cells, and therefore seems to be protective."

    Scientists have for years noticed that people who drink coffee seem to be less likely to die from all sorts of causes, including heart disease, stroke, or diabetes. Perhaps the best evidence yet for this comes from two massive studies: one of more than 400,000 people in the US by the National Institutes of Health, and another of more than 500,000 Europeans. Both studies found that regular coffee drinkers were less likely to die from any cause than people who don't sip a daily brew.

    Coffee is also associated with a whole host of other health benefits, including a lower risk of liver disease (cirrhosis), a lower risk of developing certain kinds of cancer, lower rates of dementia and Alzheimer's, and a reduced risk of depression. It's also great for your heart people who drink three or four cups a day may be 19% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease.

    And yet, if I drink other than decaf, it causes me to have elevated PVC's. All the benefits of caffeine and I can't enjoy them.

    I love me some coffee... and my stationary bike.

    If I don't live to 120, somebody will get sued.

    By the way, this thread should probably be merged with our Everything Coffee thread.

    I almost put it there, but I am under instruction to start new threads.

    Alas, I have no merging powers.
