Protect your heart

Here’s another reason to love coffee with your whole heart: Coffee drinkers have a lower risk for cardiovascular disease than non-coffee drinkers. This includes heart disease, heart failure and stroke as well as deaths from these conditions, according to research. The benefit was found for both caffeinated and decaf coffee. In one meta-analysis, people who had 3 to 5 cups per day had a 15 percent lower risk compared to those who averaged the lowest intake (no coffee). Remember to always follow the advice given by your personal doctor.

This research suggests that it’s not just the caffeine in coffee that will help perk you up. There are loads of protective antioxidants in the beneficial brew. In fact, coffee is the main source of dietary antioxidants for Americans, according to one study.
