For those of us who are super sensitive and addicted to coffee, a new report from researchers shows that expressing love for the boost of energy from regular caffeinated coffee isn’t bad at all.
In fact, you are urged to grab the biggest mug you can find anytime you have the cravings.
With so many researches conducted on coffee, we kind of get confused on which advice serves the best purpose. Some of the studies stated that we shouldn’t consume more than a cup or two per day mainly due to the caffeine content, not the healthy antioxidants present, and others say it contains some “unverified” cancerous ingredients, making it a dangerous drink for everyone.
Save yourself some stress because researchers are now telling us it’s alright to make a pot of coffee. So, why don’t we sit back and enjoy it for longer life? What could be better?
According to the new research, drinking even more coffee can actually lower your risk of death.
After differentiating coffee drinkers from those who only drank one cup, to those who drank several, the study found that coffee consumers who gulped the most coffee each day had a 65% lower risk of death.
Death is a necessary end for all humans, we sure understand that, but that day doesn’t need to be anytime soon.
If you’ve never loved coffee and haven’t had any today, better stop what you’re doing and go make your first, one of many big pots to follow.
“Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages around the world,” said one of the researchers.
“Previous studies have suggested that drinking coffee might be inversely associated with all-cause mortality but this has not been investigated in a Mediterranean country.”
Interestingly, we’ve been told that the advice on more intake of coffee doesn’t include the quantity of sugar, creamer, and all that jazz, especially with regards to the good old black coffee.
If you’re adding sugar-filled ingredients to your coffee, you might just need to cut down on the risk percentage considering the health consequences that come along with a high-sugar diet.
Worth noting is the fact that there’s a connection between how much coffee is consumed and the age of an individual.
“Among participants who were at least 45 years old, drinking two additional cups of coffee per day was associated with a 30% lower risk of mortality during follow-up,” the research reveals. “Our findings suggest that drinking four cups of coffee each day can be part of a healthy diet in healthy people.”
The study did not, however, find a relationship between cups of coffee consumed and a younger population.
