Four cups of cof­fee a day might ac­tu­ally be good for your heart

DON’T RE­JOICE JUST YET, THOUGH.

Four or five shots of espresso is ap­par­ently the per­fect recipe for a healthy heart, specif­i­cally for older adults, ac­cord­ing to a new Ger­man study. The re­sults of the study, pub­lished in the jour­nal PLOS Bi­ol­ogy, claims that caf­feine — work­ing as a stim­u­lant — can im­prove the health and pro­tect the pow­er­houses of the cells in our blood ves­sels. There’s a mount­ing body of ev­i­dence to sug­gest cof­fee is good for health — peo­ple who drink the brown brew seem less likely to die of heart dis­ease, stroke and di­a­betes, and reg­u­lar cof­fee drinkers are less likely to die from any cause as com­pared to those who don’t drink java. Cof­fee has also been linked to bet­ter liver health, be­lieved to lower the risk of can­cer and de­men­tia, and re­duced de­pres­sion. The one caveat: this study was done on lab rats and hu­man tis­sue, so take this news with a pinch of salt.
