Do you drink coffee every day? Many studies show that you do something good for your body with it. The risk of heart attack and stroke should decrease thanks to coffee consumption. According to current assumptions, coffee can also reduce the risk of developing liver cancer, diabetes or Alzheimer's disease. It must be mentioned, however, that new studies on the topic always bring new knowledge. The results of a British research team from the University of Bath showed that the time when coffee is consumed plays an important role *.

They advise against coffee before breakfast because it can increase blood sugar levels enormously and thus promote the development of diabetes.

One of the most recent publications on the topic of coffee consumption is provided by a research team from Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary.

The scientists around Dr.

Judit Simon from the University's Heart and Vascular Center investigated the number of cups of coffee per day from which a life-prolonging effect began.

Their conclusion, presented by the researchers at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress in 2021:

Up to three cups of coffee a day is associated with a lower risk of stroke and fatal heart disease.


The per capita consumption of coffee averaged 168 liters in 2020, reports the coffee association.

Current research shows which amount of coffee per day is most beneficial.

Three cups of coffee a day should have a life-prolonging effect


Judit Simon emphasized, according to the ESC: "To the best of our knowledge, this is the largest study that has systematically examined the cardiovascular effects of regular coffee consumption in a population group without a diagnosed heart disease".

She continues: "Our results suggest that regular coffee consumption is safe, as even high daily consumption after a follow-up period of ten to 15 years was not associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes and all-cause mortality".

According to Simon, 0.5 to three cups of coffee a day is associated with a lower risk of stroke, death from cardiovascular disease, and death from other causes.

For their study, the Hungarian researchers used data from 468,629 people who showed no signs of heart disease. The mean age was 56.2 years and 55.8 percent of the participants were women. The study participants were divided into three groups: little to no coffee consumption, light to moderate coffee consumption (0.5 to three cups per day) and heavy coffee consumption (more than three cups per day). After a mean follow-up period of eleven years and taking into account possibly result-distorting factors such as age, physical activity and diseases such as diabetes, the researchers came to the conclusion:

Compared to non-coffee drinkers, light to moderate coffee consumption was associated with a twelve percent lower risk of overall death, a 17 percent lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and a 21 percent lower risk of stroke

, such as the ESC informs.

According to study author Simon, one explanation for this effect is that coffee consumption causes positive changes in the structure and function of the heart.
