March 24, 2022 – Antioxidants in the beans improve health by boosting the metabolism, reducing swelling and cutting fat build-up, scientists said.
This means even decaf is good for your heart – and people with other vices like junk food and smoking still get benefits.
Dr Peter Kistler, from the Baker Heart Institute in Melbourne, said: “Because coffee can quicken heart rate, people worry that it could trigger or worsen heart issues.
“But our data suggest that daily coffee intake shouldn’t be discouraged, but rather included as a part of a healthy diet.
“We found coffee drinking either did no harm or was associated with benefits to heart health.”
Three studies used data from 382,000 people in the UK to track health and coffee habits for up to 10 years.
