depression and heart diseaseWhat do we know about the health benefits of coffee and tea?

It is known from past research that healthy substances are contained in coffee and green tea (such as antioxidants) that can protect against common health problems like type 2 diabetes. We are starting to recognize the health benefits from drinking these perennially favorite beverages around the world.

The bottom line? It does! The researchers concluded that drinking coffee, green tea and oolong tea and total caffeine intake reduces heart disease risk by 38% in men and 22% in women. How much do you have to drink to get this benefit? About 1 to 2 cups daily, although drinking 3 or more cups daily decreases the risk slightly more.

This is one of many such studies proving the health benefits of coffee. There are also studies that strongly support coffee and tea in preventing diabetes as well.

Do we suggest for you to start drinking coffee or tea as a means to prevent heart disease? Hardly. There are many other more effective ways in prevent heart disease as outlined in our article on heart disease. However, if you currently drink coffee or tea, rest assured that your body will benefit from this.
