According to the American College of Cardiology, drinking two or three cups of coffee every day may benefit your heart. Researchers found that the consumption of caffeinated beverages is associated with a 10% to 15% lower risk of coronary heart disease, heart failure and dangerous heart rhythms—as well as a longer lifespan.
Some people may worry that drinking coffee could trigger or worsen certain heart issues; however, recent studies suggest that daily coffee intake may be included as part of a healthy diet for people with and without heart disease. Furthermore, coffee consumption has not been linked to new or worsening cardiovascular disease. Studies found that drinking coffee either had a neutral effect—thus causing no harm—or was associated with heart health benefits. Cheers to that!
