The study included 468,629 participants. These people were divided into three groups based on their coffee consumption, including a group of non-coffee drinkers, a group light to moderate coffee drinkers (0.5 to 3 cups) and a group that drank more than 3 cups per day.
The study was followed up for a median of 11 years. The analyzes were adjusted for factors that could have influenced the relationship including age, sex, weight, height, smoking status, physical activity, high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol levels , socioeconomic status and the amount of alcohol, meat, tea, fruits and vegetables.
It was found that people who consumed light to moderate coffee each day had a 12% lower risk of all-cause mortality than non-coffee drinkers. They also found a 17% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and a 21% lower risk of stroke.
Dr Judit Simon, belong to the Center for Cardiology and Vascular Medicine, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary, said: “The image analysis indicated that compared with the participants who did not drink coffee regularly, those who consumed coffee on a regular basis. Daily coffee has a healthier heart and works better. This is consistent with reversing the harmful effects of aging on the heart. "
Thus, in the long run, drinking from 0.5 to 3 cups of coffee per day has a positive impact on our health with the main mechanism being improved heart health.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, the right time to consume coffee is said to be 1 hour after waking up and a minimum of 6 hours before bedtime. For example, if you usually go to bed at 10 p.m, avoiding caffeine after 4 p.m it can help minimize sleep problems.
If you find the 6-hour recommendation is not enough, record the time you consume caffeine and monitor sleep quality the next night. You may find yourself sleeping better with a longer caffeine abstinence before bed.
