Coffee and Tea Drinkers Rejoice!! Heart Health Benefits with Both!

A study published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology: Journal of the American Heart Association found that moderate and high intake of tea and moderate coffee intake can reduce heart disease risk.

 

The researchers in the Netherlands discovered that people who drank 6 or more cups of tea per day had a 36% lower risk of heart disease as compared to those drinking only one cup. Also, drinking 3 to 6 cups of tea was associated with a 45% reduction in heart disease risk.

For coffee, a 2 to 4 cup per day intake lowered heart disease risk by 20% compared to people drinking less than 2 cups or more than 4 cups.

The researchers also discovered that coffee and tea consumption does not affect stroke risk.

The study followed 37,514 participants for 13 years looking for cardiovascular disease events and death from all causes.

The study is limited because it did not follow the type of tea that was consumed plus the amount consumed was self reported by the participants.  Another possible interfering factor is that tea and coffee drinkers sometimes have different health behaviors. Many coffee drinkers have less healthy lifestyles, such as smoking, as compared to tea drinkers.

The good news……go out and enjoy your coffee and tea (tea drinkers a little more)!
