IS COFFEE GOOD FOR THE HEART?

0

There are a lot of articles stating that coffee is good for the heart but this claim is still a big debate for coffee drinkers and noncoffee drinkers.

Without a doubt, a higher percentage of individuals are coffee drinkers. But the big question is that, is this a healthy addiction or unhealthy habit?

Doctors traditionally advised to patients to avoid drinking coffee because of – the assumption being that its caffeine content could promote not only the development of cardiovascular disease, but also heart attacks, strokes, and other acute cardiac events.

However, recent studies show that coffee is not problematic when drunk moderately. Benefits are usually attributed to coffee’s high concentration of polyphenols—antioxidant nutrients that can help offset inflammatory mediators in the blood and protect against all types of disease, not just heart disease.

To get a better understanding whether coffee if good or bad for the health, we list down some of the research around coffee’s specific effects on the heart.

Risk of developing heart disease

“According to two large meta-analyses—one including more than 400,000 cohort subjects, and the other more than 1 million—there is no association between drinking coffee and the long-term risk of developing heart disease. In fact, the first study found that moderate coffee consumption reduced this risk in women, and the second found that 3–5 cups of coffee a day reduced risk across the board.”

Risk of cardiac-related death

Coffee drinkers have a longer lifespan, and less likely to die from heart attacks, stroke, and heart failure, also from cancer Alzheimer and other chronic diseases.

“The Nurse’s Health Study, a long-running look at more than 80,000 women, found a specific reduction in stroke risk among women who drank 2-3 cups per week (a 19 percent reduction) and who drank 4 or more cups per week (a 20 percent reduction). Additional research has found similar results regardless of gender.”

Risk of high blood pressure

We used to think that drinking too much coffee increases the probability of developing high blood pressure. Multiple studies have proven that there is nothing wrong with drinking coffee. However, there is one study that suggests coffee (and caffeine) may pose a risk if you already have high blood pressure.

An Italian study followed more than 1,200 adults, ages 18–45, with untreated mild hypertension. After 12 years, the researchers concluded that heavy coffee drinkers (4 or more cups a day) had four times greater risk of a cardiac event, and moderate drinkers (1–3 cups) three times greater risk.

So if you have high blood pressure better yet take precautions and drink coffee moderately.

Risk of unhealthy cholesterol

There is evidence that unfiltered coffee can increase LDL cholesterol. There is nothing serious LDL levels unless they exceed 300 mg/dL. So, if your cholesterol level is higher than the normal make sure your brew is filtered.

Risk of nutrient deficiency

We drink coffee because it gives us a boost of energy, but have you ever noticed that everytime you drink your cup of Joe you often going is straight to the bathroom?

This is because caffeine is a diuretic. That is why it is important to people with heart problems to be cautious because drinking coffee causes us yo loss vital water-soluble nutrients like magnesium, potassium, and B vitamins since small deficiencies in nutrients like magnesium can have a big impact on heart function.

Risk of disturbed sleep

Coffee is our best friend for morning pick me up and at times we need to stay awake at some point, this is a result of caffeine’s stimulatory effect.

Sleep deprivation is linked to compromised health: the body responds to it by increasing the secretion stress hormones like cortisol, which stoke the flames of inflammation. On the other hand, research has shown that sleeping more than 7 hours a night can help you lower your risk of heart disease. If coffee is getting in the way of your being able to sleep, then I’d say it’s bad for your health.

There are more reasons here and there, but the question of whether coffee is good or bad for your health boils down to weighing the negative effects of caffeine against the protective antioxidant benefits of coffee’s polyphenols.

The protective benefits of coffee are certainly something you want to take advantage of, but that desire needs to be weighed carefully with the downsides of caffeine.

FIVE REASONS TO DRINK COFFEE

Coffee has already become a morning tradition for most of us. We drink coffee for morning pick me up and to keep us boosted for our whole day of work. But this is not just what coffee can give to us.

One study has shown that those who drank caffeinated drinks burned 67 percent calories more than those who drink water.

What To Look For When Buying A Coffee Machine?

0

Choosing the right coffee maker is a long and winding road for most coffee drinkers. Most of us buy coffee machines because it was referred by a friend, or we are sold out because of advertisement. Choosing the right coffee makers for us is not just easy as window shopping but instead before buying you need to know what you need and the characteristic of the coffee machine. So, here’s a guide on how to choose the right coffee maker for you.

Coffee machines came in three different types:

1. Coffee Capsule

This is the most popular type of coffee machine for the millennials. This coffee machine is easy to use, create a little mess and produce great tasting coffee. Coffee capsules uses pod to produce coffee.

What’s more great about this type of coffee machine is that the pods or, the capsules are pre-packaged to stay fresh, and can last up to nine months. The pods also offer a wide variety of coffee flavors that contain a mixture of blended, grounded and roasted coffee, all in perfect quantities. All you need to do is simply place the pod in the machine and it does the rest. Hot water is forced through the capsule, releasing the flavor and extracting the coffee into the cup below.

2. Pump Espresso Machine

If you’re an espresso lover, and you are addicted to it, then this is the machine for you. The only downside to pump espresso machine is that it requires a lot of work and needs a freshly ground coffee beans so, that’s another factor to consider, but this coffee machine gives you full control to experiment more.

Hot water is forced through tightly-packed coffee grounds producing a strong and rich cup of coffee. Some pump espresso machine also features a “frother” which allows you to experiment with café latte and cappuccino. But if you want a less work and does all the work for you, then it is better to get the pod model.

3. Drip Coffee Machine

Most homeowners have this kind of coffee maker, they work by filling a chamber with water which is then dripped onto the ground coffee – usually held in a small basket. A reusable or paper filter is used to prevent any debris finding it’s way into the end product.

Drip coffee machine is a great way to make brewed coffee quickly and easily but the filters do need changing after each brew. The only downside of this coffee machine is that it requires more work and cleaning.
