Cups of Joe can prevent clogged arteries risk and also improve heart health, if consumed for more than three times on daily basis, according to the latest study conducted in Brazil.
The recent government health study has been disclosed in the Journal of the American Heart Association on March 24, for which researchers conducted an analysis that followed over 4,400 people living in Sao Paulo between the timescale of 2008 and 2010, for their habits of drinking coffee.
Co-director for the UCLA’s Preventative Cardiology Program, Dr. Gregg Fonarow said in a statement that, “Coffee consumption has been associated with improvement of insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, LDL [bad cholesterol] oxidation, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and a lower risk of diabetes.”
Participants involved in the study were from the age group of 35 to 74 i.e. the average age of all participants was 50 years sold, since about 6 from 10 people were white. Later, the study could not specify the effects and causes of coffee, which didn’t observed to be supporting heart’s arteries of smokers.
Researchers then compared the participants with the readings of coronary artery calcium (CAC). The scanning of coronary artery calcium detects signs of growing calcium in the person’s arteries of heart that ultimately diagnoses the risk of heart attack.
Study’s author and a postdoctoral candidate of School of Public Health at the University of Sao Paulo, Andreia Miranda stated that, “In our research, we found that habitual consumption of more than three cups a day of coffee decreased odds of coronary calcification for people who’ve never smoked. We have not tested the limit of cups of coffee for which there was a protection.”
