Three shots a day helps

The Courier-Mail - - NEWS -

EACH cup of cof­fee you drink cuts the risk of stroke by 8 per cent and the risk of de­vel­op­ing heart fail­ure by 7 per cent, re­search shows.

How­ever, sci­en­tists be­lieve that the ben­e­fits plateau at a max­i­mum of three cups a day.

The lat­est re­search, pre­sented at an Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion con­fer­ence in Cal­i­for­nia, bol­sters ev­i­dence that cof­fee ben­e­fits the cir­cu­la­tory sys­tem.

Sci­en­tists be­lieve the an­tiox­i­dant plant com­pounds in the drink, rather than caf­feine, are re­spon­si­ble for the ben­e­fits.
