Why Coffee May Protect the Heart?

American Heart Association may be issued a warning particulars of coffee consumption habits in heart failure prevention guidelines. However, some studies actually found the benefits of coffee for heart protection.

In the midst of conflicting information, the research of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, United States, trying to shift the focus of the debate may or may not, be how much to consume coffee that "healthy".

"Our study suggests a possible benefit, but like many other foods and beverages that we consume. It really depends on how much coffee you drink," said lead researcher, Elizabeth Mostofsky, MPH, ScD. of cardiovascular epidemiological unit in the hospital. "When compared with people who do not consume, the strongest protection we observed is about four cups of coffee or two cups of European-style American per day."

The study, published in the journal Circulation: Heart Failure finds that moderate coffee drinkers have an increased risk of heart failure was 11 percent lower.

Data were analyzed from five previous studies, which examine the association between coffee consumption and heart failure. The researchers found no significant association between coffee drinking and heart failure. Protective benefits began to increase by up to two cups of coffee consumed per day. However, the efficacy of the slow down along with the more coffee you drink. When drinking five cups of coffee a day, no benefits for the heart and more than it actually potentially dangerous.

It's unclear how moderate coffee consumption may protect the heart, but researchers say the answer lies in the possibility of the two strongest risk factors for heart failure, namely diabetes and hypertension.

"Research shows that drinking coffee may reduce risk of type 2 diabetes," says Murray Mittleman, doctors at the Cardiovascular Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. "If the risk of diabetes decreased, the risk of heart failure also decreased." *** [SCIENCEDAILY | BETH ISRAEL DEACONESS MEDICAL CENTER | KORAN TEMPO 3924]
