Since coffee quickens the heart rate, many have promulgated the idea that coffee is bad for the heart for years. However, per a new Australian study, daily intake of coffee within a routine diet could actually be beneficial for people with and without heart problems.
Data was used from three separate studies where patients were categorized based on the amount of coffee they drank. The findings showed that drinking two to three cups of coffee a day was optimal, showing either no harmful effects or improved heart health.
While it doesn’t matter whether you use ground or instant coffee, caffeinated coffee is better for you than decaf. While this study didn’t produce any definitive results in regards to adding cream and sugar, a similar Johns Hopkins study suggested limiting coffee additives.
