Coffee is an excellent source of antioxidants, which may help protect cells from damage. Higher consumption of coffee – caffeinated and decaf alike – was associated with a lower risk of total mortality, including deaths attributed to heart. “The level of blood pressure change we saw has been associated with an increased risk of heart disease,” Lane tells WebMD. “People consuming typical amounts of coffee and caffeinated soft drinks.

Coffee contains hundreds of unique phytochemicals that may help reduce inflammation, which is good news for your heart, says Jellis, because, “There’s thought to be an inflammatory component. How much coffee is too much for the heart? In a large new study, researchers identify ‘the tipping point’ for consumption after which coffee can increase a person’s cardiovascular risk. In a large. In the new study, moderate coffee drinkers (those who consumed two or three cups a day) raised their risk of having a heart attack by 60% by drinking a cup of coffee.

But light coffee drinkers. It’s true that some people experience symptoms such as nervousness, a racing heart, headaches, insomnia, heartburn, and excessive urination after just a cup or two. And it’s also true that coffee can boost blood pressure, but the rise is small and short-lived, and people who drink coffee regularly are largely spared from even this modest hit. Caffeine is in coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate and some nuts.

Whether high caffeine intake increases the risk of coronary heart disease is still under study. Many studies have been done to see if there’s a direct link between caffein. Interestingly, studies show that coffee drinkers may have a 23–67% reduced risk of developing this condition ( 21, 22. Trusted Source., 23, 24. Risk of cardiac-related death.

If coffee drinkers are less likely to develop heart disease, you’d expect them to be less likely to die of cardiovascular events, too—and that’s exactly what the research shows. However, coffee drinkers aren’t just less likely to die from heart attacks, strokes, and heart failure.

Although his conclusions were based on observations of lowered blood pressure and increased heart output in six healthy young men, Hardy asserted that it was plausible to imagine that people with heart disease (but without arrhythmia) could also benefit from an amount of caffeine equivalent to two cups of coffee.

  • 6 cups of coffee a day would definetely cause your bladder to be be over active which makes you go to poop a liquid form of poop,not to mention that consuming 6 cups of coffee a day would impact your sleep cycle and raises your cortisol level even higher for those people who are already under stress,i don’t recommend you such an amount.

  • Iam 73 from Spain n I love my cappuccinos n wine! Iam healthy, happy and will keep both! Training for another 26.2 m marathon!
    Shalom ����������

  • I take two cups of coffee a day! I wake up with a cup and another at midday! I drink water through-out the day and have breakfast at 16h00 and dinner between 20:00 and 21:00! I take dark chocolate and turmeric and almond milk at bed-time! COFFEE IS MY MAJOR SUCCESS AT INTERMITTENT FASTING!

  • Dr. Axe, I didn’t hear you mention another toxin in coffee that is a carcinogen, and that is acrylamide. The darker the roast, the more it contains.

  • It’s a joy to watch this doctor,you can see he is passionate about
    Let people know how to get health and live better. I’m learning so much. Thank you and God bless you

  • My husband and I have been drinking one cup of coffee a day about an hr after having O.J and have been now for years and we add alittle cream, sugar and we feel really good all day.He’s retired and I still work and I work in @ Hotel and the caffeine plus the sugar helps give me energy especially first thing in the morning to get me going and ready for a hard days work and when I get a migraine I will only then have a second cup of black coffee and it always seems to work and before I know it my migraine is gone

  • Hi Doctorsensibly you gave sufficient reasons to discard caffeine altogether. Nature provides many healthy drink alternatives. My choice was dandelions based drinks as a good alternative

  • Thanks doctor.. i have low bo problem and diabetes too i am just30yrs old, have a bones problem as well can i consume a cup of coffe a day?

  • 1. After water is Tea and then coffee.
    2. More coffee, more health benefits. I don’t believe this crap.
    3. Coffee doesn’t taste sweet or good. Sugar makes that. Try to drink coffee without sugar, you will vomit.
    And I am not against Coffee or Dr. oz. I like both of them.

  • Coffee is the most powerful legal drug. I quit coffee and my head exploded for 1 week. Better digestion overall, I will never drink again. Maybe from time to time one decaf, just for the antioxidants

  • I do one cup, rarely 2 & make it @ home, with Stevia sometimes with some coconut oil in it. I imagine because I don’t over do it, that I can quit real easy, & @ times go without: so I know I’m not addicted, though, love it whenever possible. I can’t drink it after 12 Noon: otherwise it keeps me up. I use charcoal toothpaste, & other healthy options. Sounds like it would be ideal for me to quit after I go through my supply, @ least for awhile as I’m leaning towards health. I have plenty of healthy tea options. Thx!!

  • I stop drinking coffee and my productivity increased. Also, I go sleep so much better. Not going back to drinking anything with caffeine. Used to drink coffee every day because of work but now, I’m happy for quiting the drug.

  • I only drink one cup in the morning and not even every morning. In the evening I changed to decafe, but still only one cup. I gave up pop 7 years ago and only drink La Croix (and similar) water.

  • DE CAF,,,, IS POISON,,, WHY???
    BECAUSE THEY USE MORE THAN 10 DIFFERENT CHEMICALS TO REMOVE THE CAFFEINE,,,,
    I HAD A REACTION TO DE CAF,, LOOKED INTO IT,
    FOUND OUT THAT IT’S POISON

  • Coffee addiction is not really a physical addiction. People say they can’t quit because they mentally don’t want to quit instead of physically incapable of doing so. If you look around, people always say they live on coffee are the most mediocre ones in life because they buy in whatever the mainstream media promote. They drink coffee simply because everybody drinks it or it’s a common practice in our society. They never think if theirs body really need it or not

  • I love drinking coffee, but this video makes me to stop drinking coffee now. I always have mild high blood pressure often. Thanks doctor for the information

  • Once i drank a cup of coffee during my exam preperation i realised it helps reduce my uncomfy yawns and fatiauge. Now iam an ddict and my mom banned coffee and now all i do is sleep on floor or bathroom and fail in exams. I even fainted once and was taken to emergency ward where the doc said its an addiction side effect and my desi parents thought i did smoking but they realised its not that it was the instant coffee. Now i drink herbal spice tea even if i dont want to. Pls if ur a brown kid i suvgest now to drink coffee anyways.

  • Is it wrong I sprinkle coffee grounds on My cereal with a cup of coffee every morning? LOL, just kidding, I eat it with a spoon right out of the can!

  • Most east African people drinks organic black cofee without mixcing other sweeters.In Sudan Eritrea and North Ethiopia they mix it with ginger powder.Aged people drink without sugar and they are healthy.

  • Coffee offers some benefits but is a net-negative in your life. Moderate consumption a few days per week might be OK but for daily heavy consumers I fail to see how chronic dehydration, reflux, indigestion, elevated stress, fatigue and poor sleep can be a good thing. There is a lot of money involved in maintaining and growing the global coffee addiction, so studies “proving” its benefits need very close scrutiny.
